I'll just do a quick response here,I loved my BCD-1 and there was no way I would do a disc less player,
I loved the sound and didn't mind the manual labour of loading discs and also searching thru my 500 cds for one song.
The BDP-2 END OF STORY.
Not knocking the bcd in any respect as like I said I loved mine until I tried the BDP.
I will say if Bryston came out with a BCD-2 or 3,it won't happen for me the BDP's sound just as good and man the convenience of being anywhere in your house and firing her up,making a playlist from 1000's of cds instead of playing one cd for just a couple of songs and tryin to find the damn cd(even if organized)for one song.
Yrs ago we used man to plow the field,then came machinery,and now it saves so much time and even the convenience is a HUGE PLUS.
I was there a few yrs back and I will not go back to that,I still have all my cd's
