Product Description

Note: We have one Empire Streamer with the Silver finish from the first production batch that we expect to be ready to ship any day now.

The Mytek Empire Streamer is designed in Brooklyn by the Mytek R&D Team, headed by Michal Jurewicz. The Empire is a marvel of engineering… mounted on custom-milled aluminum chassis, all components are of the highest “cost no object” quality. This is Michal’s ultimate statement product. No moving parts such as fans or spinning drives. The CPU is cooled through custom aluminum heat pipes attached to the beautifully designed chassis lid, which is milled from a single aluminum block. The DAC is the highest performance yet, challenging the most expensive DACs today. Computers are galvanically isolated from the DAC analog board with EMI noise eliminated by the Faraday cage. The Intel I7 CPU boards can easily be replaced w future faster models. A Roon OS engine and Mytek OS Empire control the most technologically advanced and best-sounding hi-res music streamer available today, designed to be upgradeable for years to come.

Mytek-Digital–EMPIRE-STREAMER-DAC-6
The Empire Streamer DAC is the highest-performance DAC Mytek has ever made and we hope you agree the best DAC ever made. Empire uses two ES9038PRO 8-channel chipsets, one chip per channel in a dual-mono, fully-balanced configuration. ES9038PRO is the world’s highest-performance DAC chipset with 140dB Dynamic Range performance in balanced mono mode. No other DAC on the market today, including FPGA-based DAC, achieves the 140dB Dynamic Range performance of the Empire DAC. This produces extraordinary resolution combined with an ultra-transparent balanced analog stage that was originally designed for mastering engineers; it reveals everything in the recording with unparalleled fidelity. The Empire DAC easily challenges all top Streaming DAC contenders, including a few costing 2-8 times more.

Mytek-Digital–EMPIRE-STREAMER-DAC-7
The Empire Streamer DAC is a Complete Roon System packaged in one beautifully designed unit, which allows all the features to be optimized. Just turn it on, connect to wifi or a wired network, sign in to the hi-res Steaming Service of your choice and enjoy the music. The network setup has been already carefully optimized for the best sound and experience: ultra-low noise Intel I7 CPUs have no moving parts and are powered by clean oversized linear power supplies. The DAC board is 100% isolated in a “Faraday cage” with its own dual mono linear power supply and galvanic USB isolator for up to 32bit/768k and DSD512 playback with the least interference possible. No distributed system consisting of multiple boxes can match optimized Empire architecture.
