Something New From Bryston, The BDP-1USB Media Player!Posted 1 day ago Tags Bryston, Bryston digital player, Bryston BDP-1, Bryston BDP-1USB, hifi lounge,
It’s certainly been quite a while since there has been a new product announcement from Bryston and I guess this is more of an revisement rather than a new product but it is certainly a good idea, so basically Bryston have now added the BDP-1USB to their range.
The idea is that if you have a USB DAC like the BDA-2 you can run direct from the BDP-1USB via USB meaning that you don’t need an internal sound card creating a cheaper product, the difference between this version is that it only has a USB output, so no SPDIF or AES, I run the BDP-2 via USB out into my BDA-2 and I have to say that it offers the cleanest presentation I have ever heard.
The Bryston digital players have always sounded amazing and with the versatility of being able to read from an attached hard drive or thumb drive as well as reading from NAS drives it really is a very complete digital source.
Still waiting on price and availability to be confirmed -
Spec Below -
- EXCELLENCE in digital playback is a cost-no-object endeavor, but expense in engineering should not demand unnecessary features. If your digital-to-analog converter features only a USB input, or USB is the best sounding way to connect your source, choose Bryston’s BDP-1USB.
- SOUND QUALITY When used with a USB DAC the expensive custom audiophile sound card found in our BDP-2 serves no purpose. The BDP-1USB eliminates this cost and saves you money with no sound quality penalty. The system is powered by a noiseless linear power supply which will not pollute the delicate digital audio path or your AC mains. It can also comfortably manage complex music libraries of up to 30,000 tracks stored on either locally connected USB drives or your home NAS.
- FEATURES A vast array of features such as UPnP compatibility, Squeezebox® emulation, DoP (DSD over PCM), and more are all built in to our intuitive and attractive firmware accessible from practically all web browsers.
