Forgot to mention that the Mytek Dealer doesn't stock any of my possible amp combos. Only stuff way out of my price range - Dartzeel, VAC, and BAT with the BAT being the cheapest option at $19.9K.

I use Roon which enables playing MQA playback from Tidal. I believe PS is planning a new release that supports MQA in DAC but frankly it's sort of what led me to believe the Mytek is a bit of a Swiss Army knife incorporating headphone amp, DAC, Phono, etc all into a half sized box.
My McIntosh is their new small amp MC-152. I got it used from Audio Classics and couldn't be happier with the combo.
I too own a Mytek Brooklyn and it's really a spectacular unit. Throw in the fact the MSRP is $2k and it's a steal. Even the firmware that I updated yesterday went off without a hitch. It's a very powerful unit which sounds great both through a pre or direct (how I use it). I have a Sotm sMS-200 connected to it as well.
