Hi James!

Were you able to check with engineering which model of Sony drive it is?

Cheers!

I know you guys are hard at work perfecting the design, I was attempting to spur more discussion and conversation from the diehard CD transport lover.    This news of the BCD3 is to me far more exciting than the Cubed Amp redesign as the amps were never discontinued and the fact that  a Bryston CD player was the only Bryston component I was missing

If memory serves me Bryston was going to produce 10 units for testing/production purposes with a projected availability date of mid June.  The question is are they on schedule...it seems like this thing is dragging on.

Hi


Dragging  it is but we are looking at different ways to isolate the drive from vibrations.

Hi James,

How much sonic improvement will BCD3 CDP be, vs. BCD-1 as digi transport to a BDA-1?

Thanks
Pete

HI James,


Good to hear you're taking customers requests to heart. You will make it a more smoothly sliding drive compared to the rather clunky bcd-1 I take it?


Cheers,
Marius

Hi Marius

Yes i really like the new Sony drive we are using - it is very 'fluid'

Hi Pete

The advantage an all in one CD player has over an external DAC is you can Clock the DAC to a know Drive  and sample rate- thereby reducing jitter - as opposed to having to re-clock everything coming in as you do not know what sample rate you are dealing with.  Also the closer the DAC is to the Clock the better.

Thanks, James.

The jitter on BDA-x is so miniscule to begin with, I doubt if it's audible.   :thumb:

Excellent!... Somehow, this is just what I was looking for.  A CD player that focuses on maximizing the sound quality of Redbook CDs.  Merci James.  I'm ready to order!

Will the BCD-3 hook up to the BDA-3?  Does it have to?

Hi

You could hook it up to the BDA3 but you would not need to. It would normally hook up to your preamp analog inputs.

Hi Marius,

Did you find the BCD-1 drive to be noisy?  :scratch:

(The tray itself, if that's what you meant, has no impact on SQ)

Cheers
