EISA STREAMING DAC
As the name suggests this latest Mytek product is designed to form the bridge between network audio and a hi-fi system – but it goes much further than that. Based on the technology of the company’s DAC+, the Brooklyn Bridge combines network player, DAC and preamp in one compact unit, complete with digital, analogue and phono inputs, and RCA, XLR and headphone outputs. Controlled by a smartphone app, it will play from network sources, Roon, online streaming including Qobuz and Tidal, a computer via USB, and even USB storage devices. It may be compact, but this is a remarkably flexible – and superb-sounding – network streaming player.
