Mytek ADCs and DACs..yeah, they are thrilling(JA take note)

been a devotee for about 5 years now.The great sound and ease of use of these products is great. The designer, Michal, is an audiophile at heart and provides Chesky with gear, among others.. very smart guy. I was a former benchmark and grace user.. no more.
mytek really wiped the floor with those two.. they sound strident and lackluster in comparison. mytek costs less too..

there are some high res comparison files on the website..

Mytek units are very nice.

What do you think of Lavry? I find they do not have the greyness I hear with Benchmark. I do find the differences pretty subtle however.

I had Lavry Blues in my system before moving to Mytek.

the Lavrys were a bit "veiled" in regards to upper frequencies. Mytek has rectified all that.

I never had the impression that Lavry DACs are veiled, but I will make an effort to listen again to the Myteks. We often don't hear limitations until we have heard better.

yeah, I had the same impression for a very long time.. hearing the pendulum and dav mic amps after owning millennia and dacs for so long was quite a revelation too.
