    HiFi Rose RS150/150B Network Streamer - Official Thread

    I bought the RS250 as a replacement of a new Node and Qutest combo. I am very happy with it as a Roon endpoint. Sounds fantastic.

    It is. I am thinking about going SimLab as I just got my DD1 and the RS1 flexes a bit.

    Mytek Brooklyn Thread

    Thanks. I have actually have used the built in phonostage. Clean, detailed, and precise. May be a bit lean for some but sounds very nice. My Sutherland sounds better but if I didn’t hear it I would be very happy with the Brooklyn’s phono playback.

    Plus it’s sexy in black You may also want budget for a nice linear power supply too I got a Sbooster for it. Takes it up another notch

    Mytek Brooklyn Thread

    On my mobile so it will be a short reply. For two channel playback I thought the Mytek had more midbass and low bass compared to the Benchmark. Which I like and which ultimately made my decision for me. Similar air, extension, and detail with both of them. I did think the headphone playback...

    I have the DAC +. Nice little bump from the original Brooklyn. If you have one already, keep it. Two-channel playback was so close I don't think I can hear difference. The headphone amp though is better this go around.

    I can report that the headphone amp in the DAC + is much improved this go around. More control, balance, with no hint of distortion even at high levels. Sounds great using the balanced adapter

    I run the Node 2 into the DAC + via toslink with no noticeable glare. Sounds extraordinary clear and wide.

    shopping new DAC under $3k with computer audio...your 3 choices..

    I recently auditioned the DAC3 from Benchmark and found it very good. Great air, soundstage and detail. However I found the Brooklyn to be very close with better bass extension. I was surprised as the DAC3 has the new chip and I wanted to keep it but opted for the Brooklyn. Caveat - If you...

    Oppo Sonica DAC (an affordable ES9038PRO Sabre DAC)

    I like the sound of the Node 2 through it rather than Tidal directly streaming from the Sonica. Maybe down to MQA vs. Sonica CD quality. Does it sound better than the HA-1, yeah but not a huge leap imo. So if I need the Node 2 in the chain I may not keep it and just get a dedicated dac like a...

    Tell us more! I'm thinking of getting the Sonica or Node 2 or replacing everything with a Brooklyn

    What is the state of MQA and would it influence your decision to purchase an expensive DAC today ?

    I really like the E2 however I have it plugged into a Schiit Jot as the amp section was not sufficient for my needs.   I am looking now at getting a Mytek Brooklyn as my main DAC to replace my OPPO HA-1. Tidal streaming and LP's are my two committed music options now.

    Awesome amp. Just got it last night. Good size for my desktop setup. Really am enjoying the pairing with the Explorer 2 and Tidal-MQA. Fun!
