Mytek’s Brooklyn Bridge takes the sound we love from the Brooklyn DAC+, adds network streaming (WiFi and ethernet) and USB host capabilities to fit perfectly in a modern music system. Bundle with the Brooklyn Amp to drive your stereo speakers, and attach it to our new GS-X mini and have an incredible balanced headphone system in a desktop footprint.
The Mytek Brooklyn Bridge is identical to Brooklyn DAC+ in terms of audio circuits and performance but has the addition of a built-in Network Streamer. AES/EBU digital input is replaced with an ethernet network connector, a WiFi antenna and a USB port for external music hard drive. Just add a tablet (iPad or Android) for a complete music system to stream Tidal MQA, Qobuz Hi-Res or other streaming services or play local files connected to the Brooklyn Bridge USB port. Roon requires additional Roon Core. Like in the Brooklyn DAC+ there is a line and phono analog preamplifier and a reference headphone amplifier.

Mytek began building consumer-oriented DACs in 2011, and now boasts a full line of home hi-fi products named for New York boroughs and landmarks, like the flagship Manhattan II DAC, and new wireless streaming Brooklyn Bridge DAC. Mytek designs their DACs to a strictly neutral reference, such that the signal on the recording is passed through as accurately as possible to the downstream equipment.
