Liberty DAC is Mytek's unbelievable bang-for-the-buck general purpose PCM/MQA/DSD USB2 DAC, designed for high quality music playback. Compatible with all digital audio formats including all high resolution formats.
The DAC features several digital inputs, digital volume control and unbalanced as well as balanced audio outputs and a high performance headphone amplifier. Designed as a little brother of Brooklyn DAC, Liberty DAC provides robust performance in small portable 1/3 rack package, all for less than half the price...this is the perfect option for those who don't need all the functionality of the Brooklyn.
Note: Mytek products include a 45-day trial period. If it doesn't absolutely blow you away, send it back for a full a full refund (minus shipping and insurance costs).
Note: An initial Break-in period for the Mytek Manhattan, Brooklyn and Liberty DACs of a full 150hrs is critital 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 critital listening evaluation, otherwise you'll probably won't be happy with the sound.
