Mytek Digital has announced the release of the MQA™ firmware update which enables the new Brooklyn DAC/ Headphone/Phono Preamplifier to decode all MQA files — in addition to all other formats, including PCM 384k/32bit and DSD256. After Meridian, Mytek is the second MQA licensee to release the firmware update with the MQA technology.Mytek_dac_MQA

MQA is an end-to-end technology that captures and delivers master quality audio in a file that’s small enough to stream or download. And because it’s fully authenticated, the listener can be sure they are hearing exactly what the artist recorded and approved in the studio.

Later this year, availability of high-resolution music streaming services using MQA format is expected.

In a move that is rather unusual in a $2,000 DAC, Mytek has engineered the very Brooklyn DAC to also include a Phono Preamplifier and Headphone Amplifier.
