James, is there any reason a BDP and/or BDA could not be installed vertically versus horizontally? Based on pictures, I do not see any vents on top of the units. The reason I ask is that the TV cabinet I'm working with has limited shelf space and my amp, universal disc player and cable box take up the main section, leaving me with only the narrower sections on the sides. The WAF prevents me from upgrading to a larger media cabinet or dedicated rack. Thanks.

Hi

There are no moving parts so you should be fine.

Hi james, i would like to upgrade my bdp-2 to bdp-3. When will it be made available? I heard from my local dealer that it is still not made available for upgrade yet.
I have been using the tidal app quite a lot these days... I find the bryston tidal app is acting pretty slow. Hence, hopefully the bdp-3 hardware upgrade will speed up the app.
Oh yes, the bryston tidal app could not call out EP and singles under the chosen artist. The discography under the chosen artist only display albums and not EP and singles which is a very important feature of tidal. Hope the next firmware update will fix that issue.
Thanks!
Leong

Has anyone had issues with accessing the BDP on a windows 10 network?  Mine seems very flaky.  I only access the drive on the network when i upload new music so i'm not sure when it disappeared.  MM can still be accessed via the PC and it works ok but no luck seeing the drive on the network.  Once last night it seemed to be there but when i clicked on the icon the password screen didn't pop up just a message stating something like the name might not be matching.  I have an internal drive so this is a real pita.  Very frustrating to the point i might be looking for a new player or taking the internal drive out and use an external.  This used to be a relaxing pastime where have we gone.

On my last Windows 10 update, I also lost the ability to see the BDP-2 internal drive.  I also had to go into "Turn Windows Features On/Off", and re-enable Samba 1 client capability on the Windows machine.

While this is an okay workaround for my situation, as a software developer, I would suggest that Bryston really does have to support the more secure Samba, sooner than later.  In the software world, old security protocols are being turned off all over the place.  There will come a day when the BDP simply will not connect to anything via Samba. 

Of course, upgrading could have an effect on old client machines.  That's where testers make their money :)

Took me a really long time to figure out that I had to turn on SMB1 again.

Definitely time to sort this one out.

James, wondering if you or your guys could help. I have a BDP 2 that feeds into a Chord Dave and blu mk ii CD player. At the moment it is connected by usb and works very well.

I have ordered an AES cable and a BNC cable to free up the USB connection to the DAC to connect to my Mac mini. The problem is that when I connect the BDP 2 via AES or BNC I don’t see either connection available in the devices tab. I tried restarting the device several times in the hope that a restart would force the player to repelled for new devices. However that doesn’t seem to work.

I am wondering if I did something wrong when I upgraded the card to new IAD last year?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks
Mike.

Hi Mike,

AES/EBU and COAX are the Bryston IAD entry on the devices page, it doesn't show as the chord simply because theirs no way for the DAC to communicate that to the BDP via SPDIF.
