Mytek Digital Manhattan II DAC Headphone Preamplifier
The Mytek Digital Manhattan II DAC Headphone Preamplifier updates Mytek's previous flagship design to sport the latest, available state-of-the-art components for the absolute best possible converter performance. New optional cards put a premium phono preamp onboard as well as turning the Manhattan II into a device ready to stream hi-res audio. Mytek Digital always amazes the ears. And with the Mytek Digital Manhattan II, more mind-blowing sound quality is available to interface with more media sources than ever before.
The Mytek Digital Manhattan II DAC Headphone Preamplifier is a reference USB/Network DAC/Preamplifier with MQA decoder, 384k PCM and DSD256, phono and line analog preamplifier and a reference headphone amplifier. Integrates digital streaming and vinyl analog playback for reference listening on headphones and speakers. The Phono Input Card is available as an option, as is the Roon-Ready Network Card which turns the Mytek Digital Manhattan II DAC into a streaming ready device.
The Manhattan II design uses the same chassis, same power supply, and front panel circuits as the original Manhattan. However, it uses a completely new, redesigned main board which offers a substantial upgrade in sound quality. In addition, users will notice significantly better detail and resolution, as well as state-of-the-art transparent analog preamplifier performance.
