Just a quick question for anyone that may have some information pertaining to "MYTEK", I sent in my DAC for repair, and haven't heard from anyone at any time , Except for the, manufacture in Poland, who's been very helpful in trying to facilitate any communication with the Brooklyn New York office, but it seems they have not even returned his messages as well. My DAC equipment went to the Brooklyn NY office. Does anyone know if they're still in business? I haven't received a phone call, or a text message or any communication that I advanced. Absolutely radio silence. Are they still in business? I have even written emails with respect to please return my equipment as it is, and still have not received any communication via telephone, text message and or email. Does anyone know if they're still in business
thank you for the response. Yes, I did open up a ticket, as a matter of fact, the head of the company in Poland, opened up the ticket as well. Tried sending private emails as well as voice mails even Tried their website at least a half-dozen times, with no response going on I guess 4 to 5 weeks. not quite sure what's going on. Even when I made the request just to return the DAC without repair, I still have not received any response. I have received many responses from the manufacturer in Poland, but even he has not been in any communication with Brooklyn it seems.
Yes, odd indeed. I just received a message from the manufacturer in:. They are instructing me to just go to the Brooklyn office in person, and find out what's going on. I just sent them and other two emails including and not limited to another phone message. I hope I get a response. I've never had anything like this happened with any manufacturer in many many many years in this hobby. thank you for the follow-up, very kind of you. If anything, any updates I'll certainly post them
Hoping to hear how this all comes out, mp10019. They're still advertising here on Audiogon, and I'd been considering their newest version of this DAC. However, if this is their level of customer service I'll have to rethink it. Thanks for keeping us informed about your experience.
I had some issues with Mytek recently and have to say Michal really stepped up to the plate to make things right. I was impressed. If you aren't getting any traction via email I'd try their phone number. I've always gotten in touch with someone. Good luck.
I met Michal at the Capital Audiofest in November, very nice guy, very knowledgeable.
I suspect that Mytek is a very small company. Certainly no excuse for poor service after the sale. I would be very surprised that they suddenly closed down the business, as I think their equipment continues to sell well.
I hope this doesn't mean they've had some sort of family crisis, taking them away from their business.
I ordered the Brooklyn DAC+ on Jan 1st, still not received any link to track the order or any tracking number until now, I don‘t even know whether they shipped it or not. I emailed and called them many times, no response and no one pick up the phone, I totally have no idea what's going on, am I just lose my money?
I searched on MYTEK Customer Service and found this link for creating a new ticket or checking your ticket status. I suggest you check your ticket status to get an update: https://mytekdigital.com/hifi/support/
I am very surprised at the lack of response by MYTEK DIGITAL about the issues described above. If I owned a MYTEK DIGITAL product that failed to work, as advertised, I would return it and move on. I have little patience for high end audio equipment that does not work.
I have had to return products for service and they were usually repaired and returned in 3-4 weeks. Most credit cards have some form of warranty, or something similar, that might allow you to return the product and get a return of your money. I suggest you ask them. Please keep us posted.
Dear @mp10019 (Michael) I just became aware of this thread, and I'm really sorry for your perception of the service you received. I tried to investigate what happened and it appears that the way the DAC came to us (was simply handed to the booth attendant at the NY Audio Show without properly being logged for repair nor RMA issued) caused a confusion as it wasnt properly labeled or put aside. It also seems you did have communications with Adam of techsupport prior to 12/16. We spoke a little after you wrote above post and we dropped off replacement DAC at your apartment in Manhattan after that.
It's also true we are a small Company with very rapidly growing sales and we are responding to the challenge to beef up our customer service, especially during trade shows (we just did NAMM in Anaheim and CES prior to that - so some of these post may have had not being answered immediately then) and also to be better prepared to quickly expedite sales during surges such as the Xmas season. I apologize to anyone who wasn't able to get through or had to wait too long, I hope the experience is improving an will be a smooth sailing for everybody soon. We are in business, we have fantastic products and our sales are growing rapidly. Improving the response time and service is our priority now. Also , to put all the above in perspective we have sold approx 1500 Brooklyn DACs in 2017, so the percentage that needed any service was very small. Great majority of our customers are very happy with Brooklyn DAC or DAC+, particularly with its sound and positive Tidal MQA experience. We are in Brooklyn, New York 10-6pm and the tel nr is 347 384 2687 and support ticket system here is generally answered within 24 hrs:
After I posted my comments above, I sent Mytek an urgent email making them aware of these many problems and the frustrations that many people were have with Mytek customer service. I suggested that Mytek update this forum post, explain the facts and take immediate action to correct these problems.
I was was very impressed since Michal immediately responded to my email and did update this forum post. It seems Mytek is taking the required action and I am impressed. I am not a Mytek customer but was impressed with his immediate response to my email and the concerns stated in this forum.
@hgeifman Nice work. I was considering the Manhattan until I saw this thread and put it on hold. Maybe after some of these concerns have been addressed here in a positive manner I can move forward. A very positive sign to see Michal step up to this forum and address matters personally
Mytek responded to a follow up question that I had about upgrading my Manhatten. The M1 has a FireWire input that I like and use with a MacBook. The M2 swaps this out for a usb. My question was if I will lose the FW input with the upgrade, and they answered affirmatively. So they seem to be on the ball now
that the way the DAC came to us (was simply handed to the booth attendant at the NY Audio Show without properly being logged for repair nor RMA issued) caused a confusion as it wasnt properly labeled or put aside.

in order to set the record straight, the truthfulness and the misrepresentation of this statement is telling of the company in itself. We were instructed to go to the audio show in New York City and hand the DAC to the person working the show because we could not reach them for months and months at a time. The only way to contact this company was to attend the show purposely, to deliver the DAC for repair as we never received neither a phone message nor a text in return.. I the deceitful doubledealing two-faced fabrication of anybody at any time on this planet leaving a DAC replacement at our apartment in Manhattan is not only a piece of perfection, but outright perjury. This is so creative in the imagination perhaps could be defined as "daydreaming", a wish, or just plain delusional. "A pie-in-the-sky dream", we have three doorman, a mailroom, and a shipping room. This never happened not in 1 million years at least, at the very least, it would be civil and polite for the honesty and the accuracy in a statement of truth. In other words, what actually happened the honest truth, the reality the actuality in real life I. And the actual fact as it happened it's not that difficult to tell the truth if the truth be told. In question "the DAC was simply handed to the booth attendant at a New York show? Without properly being logged in?Simply not true on any level. It also seems you did have communications with Adam of techsupport prior to 12/16. Adam was hours late for the show after it went underway, and there were many people waiting. Every time we stopped back into the large vendors room, even the vendors which shrugged their shoulders and say well, you know that company they may not show up?? That gave us a great sense of security. As a matter of fact, the show in New York City this year, once again, this company was laid by hours you don't have to believe me, you don't have to believe them, next time attend for yourself any of the audio shows go to the company's table bring your lunch in a cup of coffee and wait until somebody shows up after the show is underway. Happens every time. To say, "I did not communicate with Adam", I waited for Adam to show up as I previously wrote, and "Adam", was unprepared and could not find not even a writing paper or a card/business card, so on one of my business cards, but I handed him she wrote the RMA number, the date and the time, and asked me to contact them after the show, which I did time and time and time and time again. At least, you could stick to the truth the falsification and the exaggeration the whopper the stretching of the truth in your answer is what fairytale movies are made of.
@mihow. Saw your post above about your forums and great support. You should actually review the very few posts on your forum and provide answers. I for one am sorry I purchased a Mytek Brooklyn DAC seeing the way you treat your customers.
So many choices out there. Try Benchmark, PS Audio, or others.!
This is a textbook example of why companies can fail. A company culture that is not honest with, and supportive of, its customer base, no matter how good the product, will find it hard to prosper until such deficiencies are fixed. It's about management and leadership. Mytek seems to be lacking in both areas. Their European affiliate seems to have its act together.
I have to say that Mytek has been over the top consumer friendly since I purchased a Manhattan over a year ago. a. they’ve answered the phone every time that I’ve called which is rare in audio. b. they elected to send me a replacement unit for my original unit which had a small bug. Just call their phone no listed on the website. It works. Finally I have to plug the Manhattan 2. It has a phenomenal feature set to go with great sound and build quality. It easily pushed my beloved bricasti m1 out of the way which was very surprising to me.
