Mytek Brooklyn Amp power amplifier
August 30, 2018 § Leave a comment
“Mytek’s Brooklyn Amp is an unusual amplifier that brought the instrumental details of various discs to the fore in a cool-headed, involving, often surprising way. Allying one or two Amps to Mytek’s Brooklyn DAC+ makes a serious combo with a future. And because all Mytek products are said to be upgradeable via firmware downloads, you can be sure to keep up to date with the Amp’s continuing evolution.
Blossoming from an extremely low noise floor, the Brooklyn Amp’s reproduction of my music was revelatory. It exposed the focused surge of my favorite 45rpm singles as well as instrumental details I’d somehow missed, and its sound was consistently immediate and dynamic. Using two Amps in bridged-mono mode greatly increased the flesh and blood of the sound of a single Amp, with no loss of dynamics. Now if Mytek could somehow combine all those strengths in one box, they’d really be on to something.”
