Bubble UPnP is by far and wide the best DLNA UPnP android app.

Probably too late to make a difference, but +1 on this.  Before I adopted it, I tried half a dozen or more, and it stood far above the others in flexibility and reliability. Recent trials of others didn't change my opinion. An important part of that is an author who listens to users and tries to accommodate their needs and desires for the software.

Hi Folks,

Just an update – FINALLY – we have received AirPlay approval from Apple on our new Bryston BryFi product – please see attached PDF.

We will be able to start shipping product next week.  Thanks to those that ordered months ago and have persevered through this.

Fascinating. Like having a BDP-Pi, DAC, and speakers all in one box?
MSRP in CAD$?
DAC chip/implementation?

Geez, I must conclude then...

- the BDP-Pi is over-priced
- the BryFi seems like a killer deal

HI James,


Will this Apple Airplay approval be valid for the BDP also? Since it is essentially the same software I would hope this to be the case?


Cheers,
Marius

Hi Marius

No it is totally different software in the BryFi.

Hi James,

Sorry for my misunderstanding. I thought the BryFi and BryPi, both built on the same Raspberry, would have had the same software as the Bdp, since the BDP and BryPi share software.

Let me ask it this way then: will you accommodate Apple AirPlay on the Bdps?

Cheers
Marius

Hi

The BryFi was developed by a different software engineer so it was a completely different project. I do not think we will send the Pi in for approval.

Maybe I missed this somewhere, but can the BryFi's music selections be controlled from the front panel? With pocket drives attached to the rear. Setting up powered ethernet access (like for my BDP-1) in every room for iDevice control is a PITA.

Hi

The BryFi is controlled with a phone or computer, Ipad etc.  The front has a drop down draw which allows for thumbdrives, ethernet  inout etc.to be inserted and a volume control.  But the main feature of the BryFi is that it is controlled through remote devices.  You can also have multiple units in different rooms each controlled separately.

Hi James,

So...if I understand you right...BryFi will latch onto my home wireless router? No need to run an ethernet cord to my powerline (like I do with BDP-1)? The router should assign BryFi its own IP address wirelessly, right?

Thanks.
Pete

I went to the Bryston web site for more info on the BRYFI unit, but couldn't find it anywhere.  Are you going to add it soon?
