Brooklyn Bridge

HI RES STREAMING DAC/PREAMP/HEADPHONE AMP

Brooklyn Bridge

WE HAD A STREAM

Introduction

We all agreed that the next step forward for the DAC+ would have to be streaming capabilities. Without compromising its musical qualities. So our engineers went back to the drawing board to build what they aptly called the Brooklyn Bridge. In the end we’ve managed to bundle almost all functionalities of the Brooklyn DAC+ added with a serious streaming capabilities. With Roon Ready certification as a silent witness. The Bridge had to offer one digital input (AES/EBU) to gain three new ones. The Bridge boasts both wired and wifi network connection and even found space for an extra USB port. With the same transparency, detail and definition as the DAC+ you may now enjoy TIDAL Master, Qobuz high res, or whatever streaming provider for that matter including music stored on your own network devices. The Brooklyn Bridge is the perfect solution for streaming music lovers and gives them a killer digital preamp, with a superbly sounding headphone preamp including an MM/MC phono stage, and a USB DA converter suited to play all known formats and more as a bonus. The Bridge’s digital inputs can handle hi-res music including MQA (up to 384kHz PCM, DSD256) with an impressive 130dB of Dynamic Range This streaming baby does it all, and plays circles around its peers that cost up to five times its price. The MQA hardware decoder is one of a kind and recreates what the artists intended you to hear right in your own listening room. When you hear the first tones coming from a Brooklyn Bridge you will hardly now what hit you. It’s that good. Stream on.
