Curious, can older BDP-2's still be upgraded to BDP-3's and if so after the upgrade what can the BDP-3 do that the upgraded BDP-2 can not, if anything? Or is the upgrade complete parity with an actual BDP-3?

Thanks

These are Chris Rice questions - please email him - crice@bryston.com

OK, I emailed Chris, but if he could reply here that would be better for the community.

Also, is Bryston still doing BDP-2 upgrades?

Hi Folks,

At this point we can not do any upgrades on the BDP-2 too the BDP-3 as there are no parts available.

I currently have a BDP-2 with IAD upgrade.  Thinking of stepping up to a BDP-3, for faster response, more connections, higher memory capacity, faster DB update time, etc.   My BDP-2 has rather slow shutdown time (about 1 minute) and startup time (about 1 minute).  Is this about the same for BDP-3?

Hello,

Shutdown time is just simple preset timer and startup is maybe 10-15 second faster due to its faster storage for the software.  It is overall a bit fast then a BDP-2, the performance of audio should be identical but atleast some customers who have updated from BDP-2 to BDP-3 have  noticed an improvement in audio quality.  Not sure how to explain this as the output path really shouldn't be any different.

Hi Chris,

I was hoping you could comment on any performance benefits that the BDP-3 might have over the BDP-2 as jazz4u2 was getting at:  https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=151013.msg1884568#msg1884568

Re Amazon Music, I understand that an API is required and remain hopeful that good things will come with time.

Re Apple, I am not expecting anyone but Apple to do Apple  :|

Thanks,
Stefan

I'm hoping Apple will either implement something like Spotify Connect or allow bit perfect playback over airplay (airplay is already 48khz 24bit lossless).

Is this permanent or simply due to the global parts shortages?

Can the BDP display colour be changed via jumper setting like the LEDs?

How can the LED color be changed internally with jumpers?

The BDP's don't have a jumper, they use solder pads, it would involve removing a blob of solder and adding a new blob of solder, not really recommended as it only results in the power led changing colour.
