The first of the BDA-3 DAC’s getting ready to leave the building !!!James
It's nice to see them finally going out, seems not long ago that the BDA-3 was just a concept.Are any of the first boxes going to contain a lucky golden ticket giving the finder a tour of the Bryston factory?
BDA-3 in the house. Now to hook it up.
Hi Folks,Feedback with permission:Sent to: James Tanner on: Today at 03:18 pmJames,My initial impression is that the BDA-3 has followed the normal progression of the 1,2 then 3. This is a new beast. This has the same traits as the other processors but takes the music to another level. The detail is so remarkable. Every sutltiy is heard along with Bryston's usual bass. I feel like I'm in a concert hall. This sounds so real. You cannot tell your listening to digital. The cymbals just shimmer.Last night I was laughing to myself that the hype said it's sounds like the BDA-2. No this is another significant improvement. The BDA-3 is in another league. Just like the new sound card in the BDP-2.I wrote you so not to step on anyone's toes. Audio is to opinionated. I read some of the post and people cannot tell the difference between the soundcards in the BDP-2 and that's their propagative. It's the same when they drink the Kool Aid and claim there is no sonic difference between the BDA-2 and BDA-3.You have another winner. Haven't tried the DSD. Serial # 000005...... James if you want to use any of the quotes be my guest. I figured I'd post more of a review in the future
HIThe analog section is the same but the digital section uses a completely different DAC. Also with the finished version I am really impressed with how the USB sounds.james
Hi James,Could you please provide more details about new USB implementation - especially in comparison with BDA-2?
Hi James, Would you care to share which USB cables you have tried and whether you've noted a difference/preference.Thanks
HiI really have not had time to discuss in detail with the designer but as I have been playing around with DSD files (uses USB circuit) I was surprised at how close USB sounded when playing PCM files compared to the AES in the BDA3 whereas before I always felt I preferred AES over USB in the BDA-2.james

So if I have read right, I can hook the BDA-3 to say an Oppo BDP-103 via HDMI to play SACD and DSD files?
James - When playing DSD files via USB, does the BDA-3 require the data to be formatted as DoP (DSD over PCM) or the actual DSD bitstream? TIA!
HiDepending on what the player is putting out Native or DOP the BDA3 will play it back accordingly.james
