  1. Brooklyn Amplifier

    Hi - I wasn't sure where on CA to talk about amplifiers, so starting this thread here. With the recent announcement this weekend (or so) at the Munich High-End show that Mytek will make a matching Class D Amplifier for the Brooklyn (called the Brooklyn Amplifier), I thought I would capture the information and what I learn about it (as I have a Brooklyn DAC and want to go Class D for my next amp). Info is very limited other than the release text and images. (no back panel yet). The name is aptly chosen because the Brooklyn AMP fits in the same housing as the DAC, albeit with an inch of extra depth. It will be available in the same silver and black finishes as the Brooklyn DAC. Apart from its elegant looks, the Brooklyn AMP produces 2 x 300 Watts of output power at 8 ohms and drives even the most difficult of loudspeakers with ease. Mytek claims to have created a "triode Class A-sounding Class D" design which will make the Brooklyn AMP relevant for audiophiles worldwide. The expected retail price of the Brooklyn AMP is 1,995 Euro/$, and delivery will start mid-summer 2017.
  2. Mytek just released a firmware update (2.34) for the Brooklyn enabling it to support USB HID volume control. Mytek's release notes: https://mytekdigital.com/download_library/firmware/BrooklynDAC_firmware_readme.txt Plugging my Brooklyn directly into my mac via USB worked just as expected: I could use the volume slider in the Roon software to adjust the Brooklyn's hardware volume settings. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get this to work through microRendu. I set the Volume Control setting in the microRendu > Settings > RoonReady > Volume Control to Hardware: But in Roon when I try change the volume, it says "Volume control is Fixed" And the Roon > Device Setup > External Volume Control drop down is disabled and fixed at None: Interestingly, after updating the Brooklyn's firmware to 2.34 the microRendu > Apps > DAC Diagnostics > "Set DAC to MAX volume" button works now (it didn't before). Has anyone been able to get their microRendu to work with the latest Brooklyn firmware, or another DAC supporting USB HID Volume control?

  8. Neil Young on Pono at CES 2015 At this CES2015 in Las Vegas HD Tracks is hosting Mytek in the Hi-Res Audio Marketplace zone organized by CEA at the Bellini Ballroom on GND floor of Venetian. Today, in addition to a couple of hi-res panels there was a press conference with Neil Young. Neil spoke about Pono. I shot a raw video that should allow you to hear what Neil had to say: YouTube Happy watching.

  9. I can use both mac mini and a laptop but I still prefer the laptop as jriver for Windows is ripe with all features. I have been reading that Mytek sounds better in Firewire than USB so I want to try. Does a Firewire to USB 2.0 cable exist and have anyone made it to work for a Mytek, laptop and Jriver 19?
  10. We were just there exhibiting as always at a professional audio trade show (we make professional DSD and PCM ADCs and DACs in addition to this DAC). It was a very dynamic Show with a hint of Hi Res Audio talk and raised awareness about high resolution music formats. We had a hi res PCM and DSD computer playback system with some DSD recordings with Mytek DSD DAC driving closed Audeze LCD-XC (it's loud on the floor). Stevie Wonder stopped by, and listened for solid 10 mins to DSD recordings, he liked the sound very much... Cheers, Michal at Mytek New York
  11. Friends, I just bought a new Mytek 192 DSD and try to run it in Integer Mode with PCM over Firewire. As a long time user of A+ I am very astonished that Integer is not working. Is there a way to fix this? Mytek FW Driver 1.7.5, OSX 10.8.5 Thanks for hints and/or clarification - Nico
  12. After some weeks of intensive work, I have uploaded a Linux USB2 driver for the Mytek. It's based on the USB2 driver for the Terratec 6Fire currently available in the kernel. I have adapted it to work with the Mytek. With thanks to Jesus from Sonore for getting some documentation. You'll have to compile the driver yourself, instructions can be found in the INSTALL, FIRMWARE, ISSUES and README.md files. my github repo Let me know how it works!
  13. Hi everyone, my setup is as follows: 2006 MacbookPro with 2Gbytes RAM -> a Mytek 192 DSD connected via Firewire -> Volume bypassed to a Musical Fidelity A5 amp -> Totem Forest loudspeakers. With Audirvana+ 1.5.2 (paid version, no trial) i can't play any DSD file (64 or 128) without hearing an enormous amount of white noise which makes music unlistenable. Audirvana+ 1.5.1 was the same. Tried all possible DSD settings in audirvana, and also tried with USB 2.0 instead of Firewire. Same mess. Audirvana support is unresponsive. I am trying playing .DSF files and .ISO SACD as well. I can't get Pure Music (trial version) to play any DSD file. I also tried KORG audiogate and it works..but it appears to convert DSD to PCM real time as the DAC does not switch to "DSD".
  14. I bought a Mytek 192 DSD unit a few weeks ago and i love it! I use it for mixing music! I would love to try out the DSD feature but don't know where to get a software player and also where to download DSD music files! Would love some feedback!
  15. Hi all! Starting a new thread on the Meitner MA-1. Not sure if I should post more discussions of this wonderful unit under Chris' review post on the unit; if the mods think so you should definitely move the post over. Recently got my unit courtesy of Perotta Consulting - arrived looking great, and definitely a lot more hefty than my Mytek DAC. I'm reserving impressions until break-in is done, but initial impressions are impressive. I'm more posting with a problem with JRMC playback to see what others have done. Using JRMC 17 build 160, ASIO DSD playback does not work - it just gives static. Build 162 promised to fix general problems with Mytek/PD/Meitner but resulted in a message "Playback could not be started on xxx". From the JRMC forums it seems like only Playback Designs owners are in luck with this build. Any experience from other Meitner owners would be very welcome. Also, on the other thread it sounded like someone had great results using the Aqvox USB power supply with the Meitner. Any other data points there? Thanks a lot! Yeang
