Manufacturer's Description from Mytek

 Stereo96 DAC is a two channel hi-end Digital to Analog converter for recording and mastering applications. The main feature of this converter is its outstanding sound quality which makes it suitable for the most demanding projects when preserving the original signal quality is a required.

The MYTEK Stereo96 series consists of two 1/3 rack units- the Stereo96 ADC and the Stereo 96 DAC. They are also a part of extended family of 1/3 rack units which also includes 192kHz capable converters, SRC and Studio Clock. Stereo96 converters can be used as stand-alone devices for variety of studio applications such as mastering, recording and playback, whenever the highest quality conversion is required.

 Users choose Mytek converters primarily for their outstanding sound quality. The sound of Mytek converters can be described as "transparent". We design our converters to be as faithful to the signal as possible, rather than follow philosophy of some other manufacturers who offer "analog" or "tube" sounding converters. Mytek converters are closest to a straight wire, which is especially evident when used at full 24/96 resolution. Sonically they are equal or better than the most expensive mastering converters. Even when used in 16 bit mode, the Stereo96 converters produce 20dB (10 times) less distortion than typical converters found in budget recording equipment.

About Manufacturer

Mytek, Inc. is a high end recording studio equipment manufacturer founded in 1992 in New York City. Mytek considers the sound quality and real life functionality of its products especially important. In designing our circuits we emulate high end audiophile designs, and we not only measure but also conduct extensive listening tests. We use audiophile quality components, avoiding standard opamps or electrolytic capacitors in the signal path. Once prototyped, our equipment is beta tested in major recording studios in NYC and updated when required before introduction to the market. Our first product introduced in 1992 was the PrivateQ multichannel headphone system. There are now over 100 systems operating in major recording studios worldwide with famous users such as The Rolling Stones. In 1992 we started developing our line of digital audio converters which now provide top 24 bit/192 kHz quality conversion and a number of features not found in any competitive products. We also manufacture the world's most sophisticated digital AES/EBU meter.
