Brooklyn DAC+ is primarily reference USB2 DAC, but also line and phono analog preamplifier and a reference headphone amplifier. It integrates digital and vinyl hi-res playback for reference listening on headphones and speakers. All integrated functions are of the premium grade. Both phono preamplifier as well as a headphone amplifier are of the highest quality, they challenge dedicated units costing thousands of $$.
Brooklyn DAC+ was launched at RMAF 2017 in October 2017 and is now shipping. It replaces Brooklyn DAC which has now been discontinued.
Brooklyn DAC+ features the following improvements as compared to Brooklyn DAC:
– Sabre 9028 Pro chipset ( 9018 in older model)
– Higher grade, more transparent and less noisy analog attenuator circuit.
– Improved analog input performance
– Improved Phono Stage transparency
– Improved Headphone Amp sound (more detail, more definition)
– Dual mono analog path
In other words Brooklyn DAC+ has the same features as Brooklyn DAC but improved sound. It’s not a huge improvement, but noticeable, as Brooklyn DAC is still excellent sounding and best value in the price category when compared to competition.
Brooklyn DAC+ is now in stock and shipping. Brooklyn DAC remaining stock is being sold as well and available while supplies last.
