32-Bit MQA Decoding, 32-Bit/384kHz PCM, Quad DSD256, and DXD Conversion, Unsurpassed Sabre 9038 DAC: Mytek Manhattan II DAC/Headphone Amp Sets the Reference for High-Res Sound

Born in a professional recording studio, and bringing both MQA sound and mastering-engineer sound quality into the home by way of the world's highest-performance Sabre 9038 DAC chipset, the reference-level MyTek Manhattan II DAC/headphone amplifier elevates high-resolution audio to edge-of-your-seat thrilling heights. While retaining the same chassis, power supply, and front-panel circuits as the award-winning original model, the Stereophile Product of the Year, Editors' Choice Awards-winning, and Class A+ Recommended Manhattan II uses a top-to-bottom-redesigned main board that yields substantially improved detail, resolution, and transparency. Manhattan II also features a built-in MQA decoder that allows you take advantage of TIDAL Masters and any MQA files. Conversion support for PCM up to 32-bit/384kHz, native DSD up to Quad DSD256 (11.2MHz), and DXD complement a whopping 130dB dynamic range, world-class analog preamp attenuators, a 32-bit integer Class 2 USB2 driverless interface, and the latest in digital connectivity. But that's not all.

Manhattan II's trademarked Femto Clock Generator reduces jitter and the noise floor to below-measurable levels. Bi-metal fabrication and two separate isolated power supplies for the analog and digital stages further contribute to performance distinguished by vivid realism, multi-dimensional imaging, standout purity, and impeccable balance. A high-current, 500mA dual-output, dual-mono headphone amplifier turns headphones into luxurious aural spas. RCA and balanced XLR analog outputs further expand Manhattan II's flexibility, as does as an optional Roon-ready network card that turns this stellar component into a streamer. A remote control, easy-to-upgrade firmware, and a two-year manufacturer's warranty pile on the spoils. So does its appearance. Reflecting the cutting-edge architecture of its namesake, The Absolute Sound Editors' Choice Award-winning Manhattan II sounds as gorgeous as it looks. The penthouse of DACs, Manhattan II will give you multi-million-dollar views on your music. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.

"It's one of those rare, forceful beasts that realistically express the energy behind the music and proactively enable pattern recognition, doing so with beguiling ease and morgue-like silence. It also sounded uniquely non-digital. ...Class A all the way."
Stereophile, Class A+ Recommended Product

"When you couple the Manhattan II's digital capabilities with its excellent analog features, you have a special component that should remain viable in both mastering and recording studios as well as in music lovers' systems for many years to come. That is value."
– Steven Stone, The Absolute Sound, Editors' Choice Award
