i have never heard the mytek so this post is prolly useless, but the 4022>v2>ad2k tapes that my friend pete lane has made are stellar, the ad2k is nothing to shun about, and it not that olde, i think it was released in 200 or somewhere around that time

anyway, id LOVE to hear a comp between these two units as ive always thought/heard the ad2k as being the best ADC in the field most days :)

If it was released around 200, that's pretty old.  ;)

I know you meant 2000 bean, 5-6 years is a pretty significant time leap when you're dealing with A/D chips.  That's not to say someone wouldn't prefer the sound of the older chip though.
Maybe a couple of small scratches, but thats because these mics are chick magnets.
Girls always up on Andy tryin to grab these mics, the scratches are from their wedding rings.

One thing I have to add - the metering is top-notch - imo, the best I have seen in a portable device.

After the dialog, it looks like we're gonna get a true comp on these.  I'm shipping Swanny my XLR splitters, and a fairly nice comp should come out of it:

Schoeps MK5/41 > KC5 > CMC6 > Oade M148 > Mytek 24/192 > SD 722/ MT 24/96/ Laptop

Schoeps MK5/41 > KC5 > CMC6 > Oade M148 > AD2K+ > SD 722/ MT 24/96/ Laptop

...providing, that is, he uses his normal rig.  This should be a GREAT comparison, and with the brick in the middle, the clarity will climb even that much further.  I'm looking forward to hearing this...seriously.

The Mytek Stereo96 ADC is a/c only.

The Mytek Stereo192 ADC can work off of a 7-12V External Battery.

Thanks!  So this may be a 7.5v Li Ion batt?  What do you guys use?

I don't use the Mytek, but I think it will work on a 7.5 V LiIon battery.  It's pretty versetile with regards to power supply.  Personally, I wish ALL boxes would allow for such a diverse power voltage.  It would make things so much easier, not to mention compatible.

It can be any battery from 7>>12v although the 12v made it run a little hot(nothing to be concerned about) I found that a 9v was bout right for the concerts that I tape ,which are 2-3 hours.

I use a 12V, and mine doesn't get hot at all.  Might be due to that fact that it's NiMH and not SLA.  YMMV.

I saw a thread on Gearslutz from back in January that the Stereo192 has firewire on it now.  Is that what you have Ted or Scott?

It's toward the end of the thread when someone brings the 192 up.

Hi David and Michal,
I would like to know more about the Stereo 192-DSD DAC.

Quote from: mytek
This unit design has been modified since original announcement. An important addition to this $1995 unit is built in direct firewire interface which significantly broadens its market appeal. It is too early for me to speculate on delivery date, other than it will be this year.

Edit to say that Mytek's customer service gets smacked around a bit in that thread.

That is the 8x192 that does DSD/DA not the stereo 192. stereo 192 is PCM only.

I have an 8x192 and a few stereo 192s.

Yes, it is no secret that Michal is not equipped to do customer service. BUT! David was brought on from Benchmark to offset Michals weaknesses and has done very well. He always emails me within minutes. (David)
It is all good so long as you deal with David.
