"The Mytek Liberty is a very clear and analytic sounding DAC based on the ES9018K2M chip. Using the Liberty as both a DAC and headphone amplifier was impressive when using headphones that are a bit more on the laid back and lush side - adding a bit of extra clarity and structure to the images coming through. The Liberty has no problems powering higher impedance headphones like the ZMF Verite, and handles inefficient planars just as easily. I'm most impressed by the fact that Mytek was able to get so much into such a small and convenient package. This single unit can replace many larger and more complicated desktop systems. Overall, this unit exceeded my expectations, and I find that while it may not have as many features as more expensive equipment, it can easily compete when it comes to sound quality - especially for those looking for a more clear and structured sound."
