I don't understand how you can add all these new product offerings and still manage to manufacture them (likely with increasing sales volumes on updates of older products), without expanding your small Peterborough facility? :?

Hi

Yes we hand build and test every product so it is a slower process than more mass produced products. Expanding is not that easy as you need well qualified people to build and test the way we do. Also some products will rise and fall in sales volume from month to month so generally we can cope but I have to admit that we have been on a bit of a tear lately.

Hi James,

Can you be a little more precise?  Are we looking at November, December?

Hi

We have all the parts on order so I would say worse case late September early October. Also we have a lot more orders than we expected so it may slow down any new orders received.

I have also had the same thought recently.  There has been an explosion of new products and recent product updates.  I have seen this happen with another high end company (hint - blue meters) and I can't see where a large scope of products has helped; likely it just adds confusion for the consumer.

With that said.  I hope Bryston maintains the quality they are know for and continue to focus on refining products over time.

Anxiously waiting for my BCD3. :hyper:

Got my SP2 back, changed the power supply and it sounds better than ever but I have to turn the volume back a notch or two depending on the song.

So the question James is, can I run the BCD3 through the SP2 using the SP2 dac as well or should I be using 2 channel bypass?

Hi Mag

Use the Bypass. 

The advantage of an CD player is the DAC and the Clock are close to one another and are optimized at 44.1 16Bit (CD specs) which is different from an outboard DAC that has to decide what frequency is coming in and re-clock accordingly with the potential of more jitter than the CD player setup.

hey james, what are the dimensions of the unit as well as the weight...also, isthe output stage similar to that of the preamps or different. in addition, how good is the unit as reading scratched discs...futhermore, will the price go up after ces...finally, how does the new unit compare to the bcd1...

ps: does the unit upsample, if not why not?

i don't have either unit, sorry to say...i have a modest onkyo dx-7555 cd player(discontinued) lol.

i want to have my system be all bryston except for the speakers. and maybe some cables like interconnects..i do have the bryston speaker cable which is excellent especially at the price .i paid quite a bit for the speakers and i'm not selling them at the moment..so there you go on that one. however, the t's are awesome, no doubt...

hi, Mag!

here is a very good statement why a cd-player like the BCD-3 is superior:

But it's not really physical distance is it? The all-in-one CD 'player' doesn't use the S/PDIF transfer of data and clock. The player is a synchronous system where jitter is essentially non-existent. The clock responsible for retrieving the data as it comes from the CD itself is also responsible for the D/A conversion process so there's no discrepancy between the master clock and any of its derivatives. In this regard the CD player is superior. It can't be beat.

Thank you for that James, does that mean they will have an eta as well as a price possibly?
Also, as I understand it is a bda3 with an internal drive will it have usb for streaming?; and how do you expect it to perform against external high end transports connected to a bda3?

Cheers, Kerin.

So this is the type that use D-D over sampling to 'upscale' data and then feed the data to a non-over sampling DAC for better sound quality?

In short, similar in theory to a bank busting dcs combo?

i would to know too, please...

Hi Kerin

Yes the new CD3 is essentially a BDA-3 with an added drive.  If you just want the best CD quality (44.1K/16Bit) - no high resolution required (192/24 or DSD) - then the CD Player is the best choice.
