From the very start impresses with its superb clarity, fine detail retrieval, and an inky-black background from which the music emerges... more authorative... the Brooklyn Bridge sounds neutral yet always emotionally engaging. There's a subtlety about it that never fails to draw me into whatever music is being played.

The Brooklyn Bridge delivers the deliciously husky and androgynous vocal performance... the music underpinned by a solid, weighty bass line boasting a well-defined 'roundness' to the notes that reveals the instrument's true heft.

Impressively, when it comes to the lower frequencies, the Bridge never puts in anything less than a superb performance with bass lines sounding taut and superbly detailed.

Instruments always sound likelike.

A believable musical soundstage, it fills the room with a sound that is not just precise but virtually holographic. And it does so seemingly effortlessly... but is almost seems possible to reach out and touch singer Bruce Guthro as he delivers his heartfelt lament.

It serves up the lush sounds in a manner that's rich and unrestrained... It's the perfect chill-out experience. Traditional pieces came across with real fire and finesse.

With a low-output MC, the sound emanating from the speaker is sumptuous, switchin to MM is a revelation, the album being delivered with all of its top-end sweetness intact. Bass lines are again punchy and taut. Sound is rich, detailed...

Conclusion: Where the Brooklyn DAC+ impressed with its clean, detailed sound, the Bridge ups the ante by adding network streaming capabilities. Think of it as the cherry upon an already supremely impressive cake.

Like: Exceptional bass performance; impressive sound; range of features.

We Say: Regardless of the source - even vinyl - the Brooklyn Bridge offers up a supreme performance.

The Brooklyn Bridge is a neutral and highly resolving digital convertor, able to extract the musical essence from a variety of digital formats. The Brooklyn has an MQA decoder enabled with a supplemental minimum phase filter running in DSP. This gives the semblance of a detailed and spacious sound.

Flowing and organic... rendering bass textures with realism... there's notable depth and timbre to be found from the Brooklyn.

More revealing mid-band and sweeter top end... more vivacious... excitement was also found using the streamer module.

It brings more rich, cinematic telling, airier and more spacious... here it has mastered its trade.

For under £3,000 it is very hard to better.

Superb clarity, fine detail retrieval, an-inky-black background from which the music emerged... One thing's for sure, from the get-go the Brooklyn Bridge sounds instinctively 'right'. And this is true across all its various inputs, whether streamed from Spotify over the wireless connection, TIDAL or hi-res files via (superior) wired LAN and music files pushed over from my PC via USB. All were handled in a manner as impressive as the technology Mytek has managed to pack into this unit's compact enclosure.

Brooklyn Bridge pulled off that clever trick of sounding essentially neutral yet always emotionally engaging. There's a subtlety about the Brooklyn Bridge's delivery (I'd hesitate to call it 'magic') that never failed to draw me in to whatever music was being played.

The Brooklyn Bridge delivered the deliciously husky and androgynous vocal performance... a solid, weighty bass line boasting a well-define 'roundness' to the notes.

The Brooklyn Bridge never puts in less than a superb performance low down, bass lines sounding taut and superbly detailed. Instruments always sound lifelike... the Brooklyn Bridge filled the listening room with a sound that was not just precise but virtually holographic.

...almost seemed possible to reach out and touch singer Bruce Guthro as her delivered his heartfelt lament.

Despite expecting the unit to struggle with a low-output MC, the sound emanating from the speakers was sumptuous. MM was a revelation, the album being delivered with all of its top-end sweetness intact... bass lines were again punchy and taut.

The Brooklyn Bridge served up the lush sounds in a manner that as rich and unrestrained. It was the perfect chill-out experience... these traditional pieces came across with real fire and finesse.

Frankly, as something of an analogue addict I must confess that I came to the Brooklyn Bridge expecting cold metal. Instead, I discovered gold.

This network-attached DAC turns in an exceptional performance using any input or source signal you care to throw at it.
