I will have to ask. I have so much to test right now that I don't want to pester my source and then not have the time to test it. :)
Hi @amirm

I'm guessing the re-test of the Mytek Brooklyn DAC (this time with distortion inducing MQA disabled in the DAC's menu settings) will likely never happen now?

The ship has sailed? :)

I also found the Mytek to be bright, thin and a little sterile. We had been listening to a Chord Qutest for a couple hours while testing some magnepans and the Qutest was much better. More lush, warmer, didn't have the harshness, more depth. The Chord can add a slight reverb but that tiny coloration is much more pleasant than the Myteks dry, weak sound.

Can belive how expensive it is. The Cambridge CXN also sounded better.

May I ask what amp have you been using with Qutest?
