During these unprecedented times, Mytek has made contingencies to continue to protect its clients and staff, in hopes of weathering the pandemic in the weeks ahead.
As of March 17th, 2020, Mytek US office was moved out of Brooklyn, New York to rural New York upstate location in Ballston Lake, NY., tel +1 347-384 2687, hifi/aaattt/mytekdigital.com. We will be operating from here with limited staff but as completely as we can. For the time being we maintain stock on most of Mytek products and can sell and ship them from here via UPS. Our online stores in the US and in the EU function normally. We can also receive RMA repairs - please email if RMA is needed. Tech support via ticketing system continues normally (enter via support menu tab). Any further changes to current Mytek operations will be immediately posted and announced here.
We wish all the customers the best in the days ahead and hope for quick return to normal operation.
Sincerely, Michal Jurewicz, President
