Look forward to reading it.
My Father-In-Law is a subscriber, hope he gets the issue soon

Rang, I remember you from the McIntosh MX-160 forum. If I recall, this unit does not support analog pass through. True?

Sorry, I guess it is not you. There is a guy using the handle, "The Rang," on the McIntosh MX-160 forum for Avsforum. I thought you and he were the same person.  :oops: :o

Hi!

I got my dac just a few days ago and I have to say I could not be more happy. :) Connected with bp-26, 4b3 and Pmc Fact 8 it`s just sounds just soooo beautifully and even exceeded my expectations.

But I have one question: on my dac box and on the dac label I have a serial number 438 but when I connect bda-3 to network then it shows that my serial number is actually 436? How it`s possible? :) Thx.

Best,
Sven

I'm kind of disappointed the Bryston didn't do better on the Stereophile list.
They said the Mytek and the other DAC it tied with (whose name escapes me) were way ahead of the others which means the Bryston was at best a distant third.
Doesn't matter to me, I'm still buying one eventually

Hey Rang, the other top Stereophile digital component is Ayre Acoustics digital hub - at almost $9G!!
It is nice to see Stereophile reviewers state the BDA3 is the best sounding DAC ever heard in the listening room - and the reviewer is buying one! That says a helluva lot. Way to go Bryston!

Cheers TJ

Hi

Yes I think we all fight the concept - "If it costs more it must be better"  :)
