Hi James -


-- will the BP-19 be available with blue LEDs? I have a cubed amplifer with blue LEDs. Minor issue, but nice to have.

-- if phono option installed, will the display and faceplate say 'Phono' - also minor but nice to have.

Hi - Yes to both  :thumb:

Hello James.

 Does the BP-19 have HT Bypass?

Thanks

James,

I'm looking to get a BP-19 with MM phono stage in black.  I called my local dealer who didn't have one in stock.  They said they would contact Bryston about getting one.  I got an email later from the dealer saying that Bryston told him that there is no phono stage available for the BP-19 at this time.  What's the story??

Hi Scott - that is correct.  We are developing a Custom MC stage so it may be another month or so before completion.

Thanks for the reply. It's too bad, as no bypass is a deal breaker for me.

Hello James,

Does the new MC module have a balanced option?
I/m now using a Project balanced MC into my BP26.

Regards,

Olaf

Hi yes - we are real close - there will be a MM and MC option.
We are offering a custom version of the MC manufactured to our specifications.

I really want to pull the trigger on this. Cold feet....

Waiting to see what the MM/MC brings.

Is it going to be worth the wait?

Hi James—

In the olden days, Bryston used to publish specifications such as input voltage overland and maximum voltage output.

These remain important to me, but Bryston no longer publishes them—or at least I can't find them.

It would be helpful to know these specs for the BP-19.

For example, the DACs I'm using output as low as 4.0 Vrms (Bryston BDA-3) to as high as 12.25 Vrms (Crane Song Solaris Quantum, SPL Mercury), with others coming in between at 6.15 Vrms (Berkeley Alpha Reference).

And to take an example on the output side, the manufacturer of the powered speakers I use (Meyer Sound X-10T & X-400C) specify a preamp output capability of not less than 11 Vrms).

So I hope the engineering folks at Bryston can fill in some of the specs that aren't published in the manual.

Thanks! Joel.

Hi James,

Any word yet from Engineering on the voltage input and output specs for the BP-19?

Thanks,

Joel.

Of course! I should have taken the audio show into account. Apologies!

Je vous attend!
