Hi,

Ultimately my goal is to try and keep everyone as happy as possible, the best way is to continue listening to the feedback from our customers and to try attempt to keep as true as possible to our original intentions of building a digital player, adding features without compromising that original goal.

Chris

Please add an optical out!

Does the BDP-2 Digital Player have a USB output?

Hi

No ... 6 USB ins and 1 eSata in.  AES and BNC Digital out.

That's too bad.

Lots of us have DACs with very good Asynchronous USB inputs and don't need a devise with USB to AES/BNC conversion.

Does the BDP-2 play music from memory instead of hard disc?

Hi,

The BDP-2 plays exactly like the BDP-1 - it uses a buffer and you are playing from the buffer.  The BDP-2 though has 3 times more memory.

Hi - JHM


There is a window on the rear of the BDP-2 which provides for future options as we go - maybe we will have a look at USB out.

Hi James,

Why do you have a double Rs232 port? Is there even need for 1? Would gladly trade those in for double balanced/unbalanced outs...

I thought the BDP was a digital out only player (SPDIF (BNC), AES/EBU (XLR)).

Are you asking for a DAC and an analog section to be added?

Correct - the BDP-2 is DIGITAL out only. Adding an analog stage would make it a digital preamplifier at that point.

Hi,

I stand  corrected. Of course I meant those double outputs to be wished for on the bda2... Sorry for that. Though James s digital pre idea is very tempting too. Any developments in that front James? Might be an interesting way to fill the 'future' window.

Still, why the double rs232 ports?

Yes I think  a digital preamp is worth looking at.  :thumb:

I will ask Chris on the rs232 - 1 assume because they were available on the circuit board.

More correctly the bdp 2 has eight times the memory of the 1 and the buffer is still the same size.  The additional memory will allow the bdp to do more like play back audio cd's with jitter rates as low as digital files.

Hi Marius,

We are thinking about future software capability, like being able to control your dac and preamp via serial and/or ir from the bdp.

I absolutely love my BDP-1.  Additional internet radio capability would be a real plus for me.

Hi Vipers,

We should be starting production in November so it is a good possibility.

james

This will be great news James as I really want to move the BHA-1 and BDP-1 into my headphone room asap so that I can have a 100% Bryston setup for headphone listening pleasure :thumb:

I'll keep everything crossed in anticipation of a pre xmas delivery!

This might be a silly question but all the picture I have seen of the BDP-& are in black but this one is in silver. Did the color change or can you choose black or silver at time of purchase.

Thanks

You get to choose.
