got a brand new BDA-3 very recently but unfortunately haven't had the time to enjoy it, as the following day the left channel of my Bryston 4B ST decided to stop working and I had to send it to get serviced
I see a new FIRMWARE UPDATE has just come out yesterday http://support.bryston.com/downloads/BDA3/firmware/
and from the Release Notes, it seems a volume control of some sort has been implemented (line 11 in the .txt file). Again, as it was introduced and then eliminated in previous releases, judging from the rel history.
I really hope this means I could change the volume from a remote like the Bryston BR2 or a compatible like Logitech.
For the short time I could listen to it, I battled against the volume control from ROON when playing native DSD files.
It could work ONLY with volume at 100. Any less than that I got static from the speakers.
This is obviously not ok, as you imagine listening and controlling ROON from an iPad or other touch-sensitive control, and inadvertently tapping on the volume and been hit by a wall of static noise! (if that won't damage the speakers).
I don't know if the update fixed this or what other changes it brings.
I contacted Mike on this and waiting for his reply, but thought to post it here too.
I also know of another user who updated his BDA-3 (successfully) but after that, it works ok, but he couldn't access the control web page anymore.
He contacted support and waiting for a reply.
So I am postponing the update until further news.
Any news, hint, solution?
