Product Description:

Product Description

The Mytek Digital Manhattan II DAC has been a standard in the Jaguar Reference System, both as a DAC and as a headphone amp. This particular flavor of DAC is one that focuses on Detail and Accuracy. We find the Manhattan II to be one of the greatest values we’ve ever seen in this category when it comes to performance, features and adjustability.

Mytek products are created in New York by Polish-born, digital design wizard, Michal Jurewicz, who’s been working on digital converters for the Hi-Fi and Pro-studio arenas for nearly three decades. Mytek DACs are designed from the perspective of studio mastering and these are some of the most feature-rich digital converters on the market, allowing you to make extensive adjustments and dial in the sound.

Note: An initial Break-in period for the Mytek Manhattan, Brooklyn and Liberty DACs of a full 150hrs is critical to their performance. You can run a unit 24/7 for 150hrs straight (play music at high output, amplifier off, then an additional 5hrs with the amp/headphones on). We recommend powering the unit off and let it cool down for 5 minutes each day. Please follow these break-in instructions closely before any critical listening evaluation, otherwise you’ll probably won’t be happy with the sound.

Femto Clock Technology

Mytek’s new Femto Clock that’s incorporated into our C777 Clocking architecture pushes jitter and the noise floor below measurable levels.

Highest Resolution Support

Modern high resolution audio formats support for PCM 32 bit
384 kHz DXD to Quad DSD256 11.2 MHz.

Discrete Analog & Digital Power Supplies

Two separate isolated power supplies for the analog and digital stages that lower noise and crosstalk while increasing power and consistency.

Reviews

“The Manhattan II uses the latest Sabre 9038 DAC chipset, which is capable of 130dB dynamic range. To time the new Sabre DAC Mytek employs a “femto clock” in its Crystek C777 clocking architecture, which delivers 0.82ps internal jitter.”

“All I want from my stereo is an open door to the music on my recordings. I don’t want to just peer in that door—I want to walk straight through it and sit down close, to grasp the full nature of their sounds in that space. I want a hint of reality. Mytek HiFi’s Manhattan II DAC–preamp–headphone amp let me do all that. “

“”John Atkinson asked me to review the dCS Network Bridge ($4250), which was designed to be paired not just with the dCS Vivaldi DAC ($35,999) running the current v.2.02 software, but with any DAC.”
