Ok so a thumb or flash drive will not work the May or may not in the manual had me confused.. I was thinking a thumb drive would but a hard drive would not...

A thumb drive would likley be fine, but once you get into bus powered hard drives and solid state drives(not to be confused with thumb drives), then it becomes a problem with the mpd-2 and ps-3

Hi

I would recommend just to use the wall wart power supply with the Pi then all options are available.

Hi Gents,
 
I received our sample Bryston Pi digital yesterday and  want to say how pleased we are with the fit and finish.  Congrats.
 
As part of Bryston theatre we have a BDP-2 and BDA-3. 

In the great room, we will be installing the Pi, 4B Cubed Amp and BP-6 with DA.

I'm interested in the pi to add a lower cost Roon-enabled zone.    I notice the Pi has an IR output option.  Is there any chance this could be configured to control non-Bryston stuff (Ideally, I would like the Pi to feed my Meridian F80 and control it's volume).   Thanks

Can the BDP-Pi be controlled by the MPaD app via the Apple iPad?

Hi JP

The Pi is powered by a wall-wart power supply only.  The BP-2 MM Phono and the BP-2 MM/MC phono stage is powered by the PS3 and we hope eventually by the MPS2 (working on it.)  The TF2 is a transformer step-up so it is passive and does not require a power supply.  It is designed to raise the output of the MC cartridge to the point that a normal MM Phono stage can use it.  If you have a MC and a MM cartridge then the BP2 MM/MC unit is the better option because it is all in one unit but it also needs the PS3 power supply.







james



is the mm stage similar to the 1 in the bp6?

I've had mine for a few weeks now. One small disappointment. My DAC is not compatible with the Pi's USB port. I'm restricted to SPDIF. I have an Eastern Electric DAC as mentioned in the following article, http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazine/equipment/1212/eastern_electric_minimax_dac_plus.htm

Regards,
Dan

I haven't had a lot of time with it yet. First impressions are that it's very good. Like any audiophile I have my biases and perceptions. My Peter Daniel Shigaclone (which I just sold) was exceptional but like any single disc transport wasn't very convenient.

Regards,
Dan

What does the bdp2 do that the bdp-pi doesn't?  Different file support and different power supply?  I was thinking running the bdpp off the Vinnie Rossi ultra cap power supply.
