General:
Super capable DAC that's soon to be a collector piece. No longer in production and no substitute is currently available.

Also functions as a (phono) preamp and headphone amp.

Featuring: Full MQA Decoding, SABRE 9028 Pro DAC, MM/MC Phono Preamplifier, Headphone Amp, DSD256, and DXD.

This listing is for the DAC+ complete like the day it left the factory as shown in our photos. Tested and sounding wonderful. 

"For now, I'm happily addicted to MQA, TIDAL Masters, and the Mytek Brooklyn. These milestone products have, each in its own way, brought computer audio to a hip new place in which I could hunker down for years, just having fun."
– Herb Reichart, Stereophile, Class A Recommended Component

The SkyFi Testing Process for DACs:

We start with a visual inspection of all internal components to make sure that there are no signs of heat stress or damage. Capacitors are checked for telltale signs of predictive failure including bulging, shrunken wrappers, or physical leakage. We also inspect resistors and other passive components for signs of overheating.

After the visual inspection we connect the DAC’s RCA outputs to our Sencore PA81 Power Analyzer which simulates a real world input impedance and allows us to monitor the output on an oscilloscope. We are equipped to test optical, coaxial, and USB inputs at Redbook CD Quality. We start with a test signal to verify signal lock and proper output on both channels.

If the DAC has balanced outputs these are also tested at this time. If the DAC has multiple Optical and Coaxial inputs they are all checked for proper lock. USB inputs are tested with a Macbook Pro.

After proper function is verified, we set the DAC up for a listening test to evaluate general audio reproduction quality and monitor for clicks, pops, or any other audible signs of issues related to dropped signal lock or failing audio output stages.

We often connect DACs under evaluation to our long term test rig for a long test stint to verify stability under real world operating conditions.
