I was expecting the Liberty II to be a Liberty 1 done better. Just as the Brooklyn was against the original Liberty. The same sonic signature, just operating on a higher plane. It is. What I wasn’t prepared for was just how much better the Liberty II is than its predecessor. And that’s with the SBooster power supply in play. I thought that duo might give the Liberty II a run for its money. It doesn’t.
I’ve had the pleasure of spending real time with a number of Mytek products over the years including the Stereo192 DSD DAC, the original Brooklyn DAC and Brooklyn Amp, and the Manhattan DAC so I think I have a fairly good grip on the historic Mytek sound. And the Liberty certainly fits in that family, offering a very clean, precise, and well-nuanced sound that doesn’t leave one wanting in terms of apparent resolution. What I found to be pleasantly surprising in the Liberty’s sonic arsenal was a lovely hint of plumpness, with tone colors and textures feeling very nicely fleshed out, adding up to a very engaging way with any music you send through it. To put in another way, the Liberty DAC II does not even have a hint of thin about it.
