@James
No disrespect. The blue display your showing on the black BCD-3 looks great. I'm not messing with you, but mine is not even close to that colour. The one you show was what I thought I would get. Is it possible my filter or something isn't correct. I don't see any hint of green in yours. Mine looks totally different than your blue. If yours is true colour, what should I do? Should I have my dealer send in in too Bryston?

James.   Here is the display on BCD-3 blue that you show.

Hi Silteck

That looks correct - I think the picture I have was an earlier version of the display and we found the life span on that unit was questionable.  I will ask engineering though to make sure.

Happy New Year to you, Mr. T.

The BCD-3 looks gorgeous, imo, regardless of LED colorings. I look forward to following further advances in audio reproduction from your group. Especially with the amps.

Going back to the original question I think it is hard to justify to purchase a premium priced CD player in the age of digital file players especially in the shadow of Bryston's gorgeous BDPs and BDAs.
On the other hand I would love to trade in my 5 year old Krell  for this beauty  :green:

Hi AG

Its an interesting question but so far the feedback I am getting from our customers:

1. A number of customers like the simplicity of a CD player
2. A lot of people have a multitude of CD's in their library and ripping is a term that is foreign to them
3. Computers seem overly complicated and the learning curve appears to be troublesome for some.
4. This may be their last CD player and they want quality but they do not want to spend 8-10K for a player

Anyway the initial demand is way beyond my expectation and it will be interesting to see if the sale continue longterm.  The CD player was a 'secret' project of mine within the company  as no one else wanted to do it) but so far I'm looking good. :icon_lol:

PS - Forgot:

5. It sounds GREAT :thumb:

Hi Folks

Just an update on the CD Player remote.

There are 3 ways to use a remote with our new CD Player.

1. Use the current BR2 remote which many Bryston customers have already and we did not want to add that further cost to the CD Player.

2. Use the Bryston GUI on their IPHONE or IPAD etc.

3. Download the codes if you have a Logitech remote already.

James

We are still looking into the possiblility of a cheap plastic remote as well.

Hi Folks,

SNEAK PEEK:

First professional review on the Bryston BCD-3 CD Player coming soon.

Got this note today from the reviewer:


The Bryston BCD-3 CD Player is the state of the art, as far as I am concerned.

I have a history in house with many well known exalted players and I can tell you price is meaningless.

This is a home run.

My Bryston dealer contacted me last week, and said Bryston sent them a email regarding remote control. The email said I can buy the Bryston BR2 remote in black or silver for $150.00  I called dealer and ordered a black BR2 remote, and went today and picked it up. I'm assuming everyone with a new BCD-3 can do the same.
My new remote still in the bubble wrap.   Siltech
