by Mytek
$5,490.00

The Brooklyn Bridge is the perfect solution for serious music lovers who want to stream true high fidelity. Explore TIDAL’s Master catalogue of MQA encoded (Master Quality Authenticated) music to find out what the artist heard when he made his master recording. Listen to the built in hardware MQA decoder doing its magic with the deblurring and unfolding process. Or just enjoy the hi-res music on Qobuz, Deezer or even Spotify on the Brooklyn Bridge. You’ll be amazed.

Hi-res DA converter: Brooklyn Bridge is one of the most powerful DA converters around. The state of the art ESS Sabre 9028PRO chipset handles resolutions up to 32bit/384kHz PCM and native DSD up to DSD256 and DXD with a dynamic range of 130dB. Listen to the built in hardware MQA decoder doing its magic with the deblurring and unfolding process. Or just enjoy the hi-res music on Qobuz, Deezer or even Spotify on the Brooklyn Bridge.

Connectivity: The Brooklyn Bridge has you covered, be it with or without wires. Via your home network you’ll be able to play up to 24bit/192kHz and DSD64 flawlessly. Connected via USB and S/PDIF it’s even higher (up to 384kHz and DSD128). An optical TOSlink connection is provided as well. The analog inputs allow for either line or phono connection.

Preamplifier: Apart from being a powerful hi-res DA converter with streaming capabilities, the Bridge can also directly power your active loudspeakers or power amplifiers through its balanced or unbalanced outputs. The volume can be handled both digital and analogue in very precise 1dB steps.

Vinyl: When streaming music or listening from a digital source doesn’t do it for you, you can connect your turntable to the Bridge’s analogue inputs. Simply switch them from line to phono MM or MC via the menu options and enjoy your analogue music captured on vinyl. The Bridge simply ticks all boxes.

Headphone amplifier: The Bridge also comes with a reference high current, high transient headphone amplifier to which you can connect two headphones simultaneously. Via an optional cable you can combine the two jack outputs to one truly balanced one. The headphone amplifier outputs 500mA/6W and is designed to drive the most demanding of headphones.

Balanced circuitry and Clockgenerator: The internal circuitry of the Brooklyn Bridge if fully balanced to ensure the most proper way of handling the audio signal. The Mytek Femtoclock Generator eliminates internal jitter to a measly 0.82 pico seconds.

Easy operation: We’ve presented the wide range of musical playback options the Bridge has to offer, so this is where the ease of use comes in. Via four tiny buttons and a rotary push dial you can control all functions and see what you are doing in the hi-res LCD display. You’ll be amazed of how fast you can control complex options, up to the dimming and colour options of the Mytek logo.
