Lets hear about Myteks AD
« on: August 16, 2005, 01:21:12 PM »
I am curious about myteks stereo 192. Anyone have any experience with this thing? What kind of voltage requirements? runtimes? And of course the sound?

Swanny, see Mr. Scott Brown. This will be particularly interesting to you, because he runs 4022's. I have only one mytek tape, but it's a smoker. warren and friends, split like 10' on the balcony, I *believe* that Scott ran 4022>v3 analog out>mytek. I really like the sound. Muj has run one extensively as well, I believe.

yep, 4022 > v3 pre > mytek a/d.  i LOVE it.  very detailed, transparent and pleasing to the ears.  runs on 8v and above

but if you order one, be sure to have michal remove the phase inversion on one channel.  they seem to be shipping with one channel inverted.

How much do they cost? I am seriously considering this one... Would it be hard to adjust the gain with a pre like the m148?

i think it's around 1300 now.  but the main thing: it's 24 bit ONLY. no 16 bit from this box.  it's juts a sick box that does 1 thing and does it very well

and it's variable gain, so as long as the 148 was hot enough you'd be fine.  i don't believe the mytek will add any gain, just subtract..

I gotta say, the few recordings I've heard V3 > Mytek sound *excellent*!  If I had the cash, once I get a 24-bit recorder I'd consider getting a Mytek one so I can run V3 > 16-bit and V3 > Mytek 24-bit.  But alas, I don't have the cash.  And besides...I'm currently schlepping two full sets of gear around (AKG C414s > T+ UA5 > JB3, Schoeps MKx/KC5/CMC6 > V3 > JB3), so it's not like I need more gear to carry around!

It isn't easier to power.  No real advantage other than...it allows 16-bit output from the V3 as backup/patch in addition to the 24-bit Mytek.  And if you've already got the V3...why trade it in for a V2.

um.....and it's not like you need two complete rigs either, Slutinder. ;) ;D Get rid of some of that gear and get yourself a Mytek and a Flashtracker. ;D

I guess I was thinking the V2 needed a 6V SLA, but there probably isn't a reason you couldn't power it off a Walmart battery with a 4pin terminated cable. Just seems like most people seem to run the V2 off a SLA. Good point about 16bit. I was just thinking that selling a V3 and getting a V2 would make the Mytek more affordable, but if you've already got a V3 it would be nice to be able to run backup and give patches. Thanks  :)

That sucks I usually have to add +20 or more gain besides what the 148 offers, I guess my search goes on.

no.  it's got a level knob and even separate trim pots.  but i don't think it'll  ADD gain, just take it away.  same as most a/ds

so if the 148 isn't hot enouogh, i think you're out of luck.  but i may be wrong.

1k, bm1, mme, v3 will all add gain.

the 1k, mm3 and v3 also are preamps though, so they already have the electronics for adding gain, right?

can't you raise the internal gain on the 722 when running line in up to like +12db  or am I mistaken?  i can't remember and i am work without my 722 to look at

edit:  woops...that doesn't count as it is an all-1-one.   but yeah scott a lot fo the dedicated AD converters especially bigger rackmounted ones for studio or multitrack recording use have a fixed gain such that calibration between the pre and it are necessary.

I think technically you are correct...but you get lots of headroom with the boxes I mentioned, and that headroom is attenuable. Now I *know* that with the 2k, you can't adjust the gain at all, but just add headroom to allow more signal from the preamp, but only to the max the pre will send.

it's the best-sounding portable a/d money can buy, IMO.  it's better than my trak2, which i've since sold since running this exclusively.  check below: combinations of 4022 / 4015 / 4011 > LAT 4/9's silver > neve pre > LAT 6/9's copper > mytek > 722

DSD version retaining 24/192 PCM capability will be out after new year.  i'll have one of those, too.

Got confirmation from Mihal that the mytek would work fine at its best off 7v. He also said that 7v is not only the minimum voltage needed, but that anything over that number is wasted as heat emissions and does nothing in terms of actually powering the unit.I am taping a bach organ concert tommorow night, will post samples.

I've been reading up on the mytek adc a lot lately.  the only downside it looks like to me is no 16 bit.  prices are outstanding, considering they can probably be had for a little less than what they are advertised for.

mytek 24/96 : $899
       24/192 : $1395


does anyone on the site owns one besides Chris Jones, Nic, and Scott Brown

how do you guys like it ?

could someone send me a PM regarding current pricing?

if you look around you might find the mytek 192 cheaper than the retail price listed above

what is the difference other than extended sampling rate between the stereo96 and stereo192 adc versions?

can the 96 run on dc? i thought i read it was hard wired? the 192 does run on bats right?

the 96 is ac powered, the 192 can run on batts. , the 192 has improved quality both soundwise and components inside it

i've been powering it off a 9v lithium and it's been perfect.  can easliy last a full show, and it doesn't get hot.  it gets really hot with 12v

Awesome Scott.Thats good to hear. I was under the impression that it performed best at 12v until Mihal corrected me. Ive been using AC power so far, but I need to get a lithium soon I suppose. Do you have the link to the one you are using or one similar??I also understand that the DC Jack/Connector isnt a normal size??(2.5 mm??) I need to find one of those too.

i just got my lithium at walmart

the cable i'm using was an old minime cable, but I have one of the first units, which actually came *without* a hole for the dc jack (manufacturer forgot to drill it) so michal made one himself...

Too bad iit cant be dc powered . I asked about it yesterday when I called to ask him some other questions. Looks like the 192 will still be the only DC unit...

the DPAs are  low sensitivity. I ran the brick and gefells with the mytek and never had an issue, even with some acoustic solo instruments that werent amplified. no, the meters arent why one would purchase it , for sure...but the sound is very much worth it. With PA music , the gefells, etc..you shouldnt have any problems, Tim.



so the consensus on the metering is that it sucks?  it looks about the same as the ua5 with it's -3, 0 lights.  i am thinking about selling my v3 and picking up one of these and would be running psp2>mytek>671.  the psp2 outputs at a minimum ~20 dB and then +6 and +12 after that.  would i be getting enough gain with this setup and my mics?  i noticed that scott wasn't getting enough with a pair of dpa's is why i ask.  i own gefells, sp c4s, naks, and soon a pair of p48 active modded teacs (rebranded naks).

I Loved everything about that setup, Tim. No complaints. Ill post a show on the NY tracker or B+P you a show of some PA stuff with that setup.If I have it my way,,,that exact setup will make its way back to me somehow.  >:D I had to sell to pick up some schoeps omnis for the classical stuff I record, which is way more abundant than secular/rock/alternative concerts here.. Damn expensive, those things.  :-\

yea, i figured i'd be ok with phantom powered mics...........

i don't really no what to stick behind the mytek to get solid metering besides the 671.   :hmmm:

what didn't you like about the brick>mytek setup?  that is essentially what i'm running if i go psp2>mytek

It's pretty much the same as on my old MME, and that was useable.  Between that and getting familiar with the MT, it's totally fine.  Keep in mind, you won't be able to use your JB3 anymore.  Unless, of course, you dig truncation.

V3's A/D can output either 24 bit (ANSR off) or 16 bit signal (ANSR on).  What Scott Brown and others are doing is passing the Mytek an Analog signal (via XLR's) from the V3 and using the Mytek's A/D instead of the V3's.

After paying the dealer , since they are assembled in poland I get all mine direct from poland instead of taking an extra shipping step. Poland is EU like germany so no customs nonsense.

Just curious, but has anyone ran the Mytek Stereo 96? (http://www.macmidimusic.com/prod.itml/icOid/5850)

All the talk here seems to center on the 192. They seem to be the exact same, only the 96 can do 16 bit as well, and only goes up to 24/96, not 24/192....oh yeah, it's also $400 cheaper.
Right now nothing...in the past: Schoeps CMC6, AKG 480, AKG 460, AKG 414, MBHO 603a, Neumann KM100, ADK TL>Schoeps MK4, Schoeps MK2, Schoeps MK41, AKG ck61, AKG ck62, AKG ck63, Neumann AK40, Neumann AK50, MBHO ka200>Lunatec V2, Lunatec V3, Apogee Mini-Me, Oade M148, Oade M248, Sound Devices MP2, Sonosax SXM2>Sony (mod)SBM1, Apogee AD500>D7, D8, D100, M1, R1, R4, R09, iRiver HP120, Microtrack

has anyone compared a mytek 192 to a Benchmark AD2402-96 aka sonic ad2k ? 

has anyone ever run v3 > benchmark/sonic ad2k+ ? 

<edit>

I didn't know benchmark was based out of syracuse, 1/2 hour away from me!

    Benchmark Media Systems, Inc.
    5925 Court Street Road
    Syracuse, NY 13206-1707

good question;

i have compared the new adc-1 with the lavry blue.

the benchmark unit is very detailed both in terms of HF details and low en details (including the room aspect)

the adc-1 is the perfect tapers adc in theory , as it has full scale metering, 3 gain stage setting!!!! and full routing possibilities and back up.

the only sad part is....it's AC powered.

for me and us at half-cast studios it was slightly more hifi than the lavry blue.

the bencmark adc-1 also soft clips which is also cool for us

thanks for prolyd oslo for testing the unit.

the 192 is better,and is dc powered. also the stereo 06 does not soft clip. Not sure if the 192 does, i haven't had the luxury yet to try it.

if you buy mytek you need to be in the new york area , if something happens to the unit ( i think i told that to scott brown and chris jones when they were planning to buy theirs as well)
