BROOKLYN BRIDGE II ROON CORE
ALL-IN-ONE • ROON CORE STREAMER • DAC • HEADPHONE • PHONO• PREAMP
Brooklyn Bridge II (BB2) is a major redesign of our best selling original Brooklyn Bridge (BB1) . The BB2 now officially has a built in Roon Core computer combined with Mytek OS for easy touch screen operation from an ipad, smart phone or front panel screen. BB2 is a complete all in one Roon system and designed to be used primarily with Roon playback software. In addition it will provide similar functionality to the original Brooklyn Bridge (Upnp and Roon End Point) and more (Bluetooth, DSP etc). You can think of BB1 functionality being a subset of BB2. BB2 has the functionality of BB1 plus Roon Core computer, touch screen, toroidal linear power supply. Because the computer will be continuously updated over the life of the product, a lot of new functionality will be added, including new streaming and DSP options, file management etc., which are not possible nor intended for the BB1. The DAC and analog section is the same in both products, but because BB2 has the linear regulated power supply, it subjectively sounds about 20% better than the BB1.
Using Roon with BB2 requires Roon subscription. Roon provides superior playback and browsing experience, especially with metadata (lyrics, credits, just like a vinyl album covers), not available with other playback software and preferred by thousands of music lovers. Roon also provides more options such as advanced playlist management, multiroom playback and ARC which turns your local library into your own, private streaming service. Roon will play any format including DSD256 and 384k PCM, while other software is limited to max PCM 192k
If you don't want use Roon, nor Bluetooth and upgradable future functionality, and are happy with standard Tidal or Spotify playback interface which uses Upnp for simple playback, you should consider instead buying the Brooklyn Bridge Original (click here) .

Roon Software can be operated from Roon Remote App or from Mytek Web Interface from any device connected to the network. Bridge can function as a multiroom playback machine playing to different Roon end points.
