Brinkmann Nyquist MKII
Brinkmann Nyquist Streamer
An entirely new design, “Nyquist” was optimized to accommodate the latest digital formats including MQA™ (Master Quality Authenticated) streaming and playback, PCM up to 384 kHz/32 bits (including DXD), as well as DSD64, DSD128 and DSD256. Both the Hardware and Software of Nyquist’s Digital Module are easily user-replaceable, an architecture that assures unprecedented longevity and enables Nyquist to remain on the cutting edge of digital technology. As promised, Nyquist virtually eliminates obsolescence.
Proprietary high voltage power supply technology—unique among digital source components—delivers marked improvements in digital circuit performance. In Nyquist Mk II, this high-voltage power supply technology has been implemented more widely. As opposed to only one power regulator in the original Nyquist, 6 of the 12 Mk II regulators benefit from this technology. The Mk II digital module includes a completely updated power supply section, incorporating 12 power regulators compared to the 11 found in our first-generation product. The additional power regulator achieves an even better decoupling of the DAC clock from the rest of the circuit yielding lower jitter, especially with USB and Ethernet playback.
The result is an even higher resolution with no loss of the extraordinary musicality that made the original Nyquist so successful. Another breakthrough by the newly expanded Brinkmann Design Team, custom filters in the digital domain further elevate both measured performance and musical realism.
Uncompromising convenience and versatility, Nyquist offers outstanding connectivity, including USB, SPDIF, Optical and Ethernet inputs. Balanced, Single-ended and discrete Headphone outputs are all standard. Nyquist is Roon Ready™ and RoonTested™ and offers Roon™ network playback and music management and supports many streaming services. Optimized, pre-selected filters have been carefully tailored for every digital format. A comprehensive remote handset offers control of head phone volume, input selection, mute and phase/invert. Thanks to our obsessive attention to each of these details, Nyquist achieves a level of user-friendliness unprecedented in High End Audio. Given its ease of use, matchless craftsmanship, total upgradeability and, of course, sonic superiority, Nyquist is simply the finest digital component available today…and tomorrow!
