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

Really looking forward to hearing this player !

BTW, while I realise it will be in a whole different class to the Oppo105D - http://www.hi-fiworld.co.uk/index.php/cd-dvd-blu-ray/83-blu-ray-reviews/743-oppo-bdp-105d-blu-ray-player.html?showall=1 - but, like the Oppo, is there any chance of the unit including SPDIF inputs so those of us with BDP-x's can also take advantage of the latest DAC ?

Hi Ian

No sorry to provide access to the internal DAC would require different circuitry (as you do not know what signal is coming in) so you have to re-clock and re-sample everything.  Our CD player is optimized to play Redbook CD''s so the clocking is optimized for 44.1/16BIT

I meant the tray itself. Clunky and not very elegant, not very 'fluid' as James calls it.
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
Pete

 Having a smoother tray is just a nice touch of class even though it has no bearing on the sound. My old Sony Es777 something or other ( lost track of the model names LOL) was a pleasure to use .  :thumb:

Can track sequences be programmed on BCD-3?

I haven't figured out how to program track sequences on my BCD-1 via the Bryston remote.

It might have no bearing on the sound (though closing the tray always makes me wonder if the BCD1 cd stays in place...) , the tray is the main tactile human interface to the cd-player.


Just as lifting/lowering the tone-arm of a record player provides an almost ritual experience to the end user, so does opening, loading and closing the tray of the cd-player...


Imagine a tone-arm moving like the BCD1 tray..


Cheers,
Marius

Hi Marius

I agree the older Phillips tray was a bit clunky but when you play a CD the CD is lifted out of the tray for playback so alignment is always accurate for the laser to track the CD. 

The new drive is much better and has a very fluid mechanical action to it.  It is also a metal tray whereas the Phillips was a plastic tray.

Any updated ETA on when we'll start seeing these in a Canadian dealer (Montreal region)?

Hi

I was playing with the final prototype on Friday so we just have to order parts and start assembling - usually 6-8 weeks from this point.

Hi James,

Will BCD-3 be able to program track sequences?
Like play tracks 1,3,5,7.  From the Bryston remote?

Thanks,
Pete

I do not think so but I will ask the engineer.
