While the Brooklyn DAC+ is primarily a reference USB2 DAC, it offers much, much more in the way of features and functionality. The Brooklyn DAC+ is also a line and phono analog preamplifier, a reference headphone amplifier, and boasts an MQA hardware decoder. These features provide an elegant integration of digital and vinyl hi-res playback for reference listening on headphones and speakers.
The Brooklyn DAC+ was launched at RMAF 2017 in October 2017, and replaces the now discontinued Brooklyn DAC.
Brooklyn DAC+ features the following improvements as compared to Brooklyn DAC:
– Sabre 9028 Pro chipset (older model used 9018)
