Mytek Stereo 192 DSD DAC/Preamp/Amplifier Review & Appreciation Thread - Page 18

I think I've found it.  If not I'll get an angry email from some random housewife who thinks my acronyms mean something rude... :-)

Problem solved - the Mytek needs USB power enabled to recognise the connection on the USB2 input, whereas its USB1 input didn't. I'd switched that off on the SoTM card as my other DACs didn't need it.  It’s working fine now.

I am going to ask for help to choose between the preamp or mastering version.

As I am a BIG "noob" in the DAC world, I am looking for a DAC that I can use for my future DarkStar/WA6SE/Liquid Gold.
I also want to use this DAC to connect to speaker amp,

Which one is better ?

The only reason you would want the mastering version is if you work with professional mastering gear that can put out an unmastered DSD signal over something other than USB.  Basically, you know if you need the mastering version.  The preamp version is designed for consumers.

definitely the pre-amp. only reason to buy the mastering is if someone else ****ed up and is selling for cheap.

Thanks Al, I also read some post back there about bypassing the pre-amp from you, it was helpful.
Many thanks !.

one more thing use the analog volume control it is much better than the digital . they both raise and lower the volume but the analog does it .

I also wonder Mytek 192 vs Wyred DAC2 DSDse.  

 

Here in Canada Mytek 192 = $1800 CAD, W4SD2 DSDse => $2500 CAD

seems like mytek would be the better value, don't know how much of an improvement the DSDse version offers over the regular one.

Ya I guess so, Mytek comes with the headphone out so worth the money I guess.  

But I just don't like the look of Mytek, to me just not pretty at all. Look-wise W4S wins for me. :) (just me).
