Yes it is noted on page 51 of the BDA-2 and BDA-3 DAC thread.

Hi James,

Is Bryston still planning to add DSD decoding to the SP3 now that the BDA-3 is done?

Thanks!
Brad

Thanks!

HI

I am not sure if it is doable as we found out doing it for the BDA3 was not an easy task but I will ask engineering.

If one has a BDP lets say the pi or USB-1 with a BDA-2 how would the sound quality compare. Im only asking as CD is still king for me but I will be picking up the Pi once it hits market. I just bought the BDA-2 I feel for someone like myself on a budget Im paying for two really good dac's when one digital player would do.

I believe the CD player has the same DAC as the BDA3 so I expect excellent sound, possibly besting the BDP/BDA2 combination.

Thanks Rod I was under the impression that the BDA-2 and 3 sounded the same just had different features.

Yeah me to until it got released and all feedback I have read about the BDA3 was it bettered the BDA2 so I'm just going by that, I've got no personal experience with either DAC.

A response from James in a different thread.

"Hi

Yes just putting the finishing touches on the software and we will build 10 units and see if everything works and sounds as it should.

I hope the new BCD-2 is not on hold due to the new Bryston turntable...

Hi

No sorry - no SACD as they use different drives than Redbook and have to downsample and reclock the regular CD's. We wanted a dedicated CD drive clocked to 44.1 and 16 bit.
