Manhattan DAC II – English
“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.”
Manhattan DAC II – English
“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. “
Manhattan DAC II Network Card – English
“”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.”
