Bryston Turntable Power Supply:


Hi James
Do you have a picture of the back?
Would that unit regulate speed of the Bryston turntable through controlling the AC power or the DC power?


Thanks

HI

Should have the back pic soon.

It is a low speed DC motor we are using on the turntable. The motor pulley has a special hour glass shape to provide better speed stability.

Not sure if it's already been asked but what tonearm will come with the Bryston turntable?

Dear James,
 
No need to have to burdened you with unorganized inquiries about the new turntable.

I have found everything I need on the Internet, and the outboard power source is really no problem. In fact, it makes beautiful sense, as everything from Bryston does. (And speaking of "beautiful," the 'table is a visual knockout, downright elegant.) Remaining questions:
 
Would the price you're shooting for--ca. $4,000--include both the 'table and the power source?

Are you aiming for a Bryston-produced cartridge as well?

About when would the 'table become available?
 
All best,
Richard F.

Dear James,
 
No need to have to burdened you with unorganized inquiries about the new turntable. The arm would sell for $2000 on its own and the Bryston power supply about $1000 - so the package deal has excellent value.

Hi Richard

1. Yes the $4000 includes the table and arm and Bryston power supply. The arm would sell for $2000 on its own and the Bryston power supply about $1000 - so the package deal has excellent value.

2. We are testing a number of cartridges and will have recommendations to make sure they match the arm and our phono stages.

3. I am hoping end of June.

The arm is very impressive. I would like to give that a listen to be sure.

Well there you have it! Very very cool James, congrats on the latest Bryston newborn  :thumb: :thumb: 
Wishing you all the best with this new iteration.


Will you be changing the hinges on the dustcover and nameplate for final production units? They still seem a bit experimental in the picture.


I almost dare not ask, but are you also thinking of a A/D converter attached to/built in the BLP? That way you would really have it all covered, Rip Vinyl to hires, as the new Sony does: http://www.whathifi.com/sony/ps-hx500/review. Would be a nice addition to the BTP-1 power supply .


Big Cheers,
Marius

Hi Marius

No the hinge will stay as is and I have been thinking about an A to D as a lot of studios have asked us to build one given the success of our D to A products.

ugh..why does everyone seem obsessed with digital..leave it alone and just keep on working to make the table the best it can be..you know analogue sounding  wise. You want digital look elsewhere. This is about vinyl.  :duh:

Sure it is, but the table wouldn't have to be changed would it? Only add a A/D converter on the output somewhere. Since there is an external box already, that would seem an obvious option.
didn't want to upset you though ;) Never really understood the digitizing of LP-recordings in the first place, thought that would only make sense from the original masters, and not from the distorted vinyl readings, which they are per definition.


Anyhow, Cheers,
Marius

then why make a table at all ..Bryston could just make an AD converter that works for any table on the market.  :thumb:

pure Analogue to digital rips from a turntable can sound better than just all digital chain. If you really need the convenience of digital :thumb:

Its a beauty.  8) I may just add a second table to my basement system :thumb:

Hi

Yes I have to say I was a little hesitant with this project but it has had a huge response since I sent out the announcement the other day - have orders for many tables already!
