I’ve been meaning to catch up with Michal Jurewicz of Mytek Digital for some time now, so it was nice to chat with him without the crowds milling about. His trick DAC-Stack was on display, allowing him to daisy-chain a set of his stereo boxes to a computer source capable of sending discrete channel outputs. Voila, instant surround sound. It was pretty nifty at New York in “live” mode with a set of Sony speakers and it was pretty nifty here, too, on headphones (though I think it’s more impressive on the big speakers). I now have one of the Mytek DACs, so I hope to be able to work a review into the flow at some point.
By way of an aside, my kids loved the tall, luminously-blue-shirted man. He was “very nice” and played them some “nice music”. Hey, I was able to keep the twins seated for about 15 minutes, which is no small feat. Hooray for Michal!
By the way, Michal mentioned that there might be a new product on the distant horizon, with a fully dual-mono implementation of his DSD-capable DAC, something with a more audiophile-friendly footprint, too (read: larger chassis). Pricing and timing is still TBD.
