The thing I like most about reviews are the albums that were used -- I almost always end up expanding my CD library after reading them, and this one is no exception!  :thumb:

@James T
The review link a couple of days ago you send says Bryston BCD-3 warranty is 5 years. Also, article from Home Theatre review.com on Dec22-2016 say Bryston warranty on BCD-3 is 5 years. I'm confused, is warranty 3 or 5 years. Thank you

Hi,

Its 3 years - In the past we have stated that the warranty is 3 years for anything with moving parts but I think some people (reviewer) think its 5 years because of the fact it is a digital product which do have 5 year warrantees.

Hi, I received my CD player five days ago and a review that is difficult to put into general audiophile terminology.

Very large soundstage, timbre, pace and tonal accuracy. However, this unit is simply musical. I put in my favorite CDs and forget about what I am supposed to hear and enjoy the music.

There is not the in-your-face detail as I experienced with my OPPO 105 but a very truthful and musical experience.

Whit my new BCD-3 my system came to life, both output RCA and XLR sound great. I have upgade the power cord and 1 fuses for now (need 2 fuses 1A 5x20 SB inside) with very nice result, more relaxe and full... Last 30 years I add: Denon 1520, CAL Icon 2, CJ, YBA, AR, Rega Saturn and more before and this Bryston is the most truthful and musical to my ears.

Now, let's play the music! Thanks Bryston!  :thumb:

Well thank you Steve - I have said this before but there is just 'something right' about the way the BCD-3 CD Player presents music  :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

ENJOY!

@Baroque
What fuse upgrade did you put in? Did you use HIFI-Tuning fuse? (It so, what model ).

Hi, I put in a Gold schurter, old fuse that I used in my Primaluna Dialogue 2...

I have orders 2 Furetech fuses from my sellers but for now it's just more gravy...

My SACD hybride are better in the Bryston vs the OPPO I didn't expect that.

My XLR cable  (Audioquest Water) is a really good match too... 8)
