Mr. Tanner, I want to make sure that if I purchase a BCD-3 CD player that I can purchase one or two extra drives and I can purchase the BR2 remote at a discounted price?  I had read that in previous posts

Hi

Sure,

Just contact us with the serial number of the CD Player you purchase and we can arrange for extra drives.

I gather you know it's going to be good; and I am glad about that.  It is a heck of a product.  I am just waiting for my also excellent Copeland CD player from 1997 to "go" to get the BCD 3.   I am not a buy and switch guy; I am sentimental about the equipment that has served me well.  The Cope is starting to make some tick-tick-ticking noises on some discs that worry me. It may be soon.

James, I have heard that the BR-2 remote is not being offered at a discount anymore with the purchase of a BCD-3 cd player. Is this true?

Hi

Yes true - it was a promotion we ran for the first 100 units sold.

The BR2 is a very expensive remote to manufacture so we need a cheaper plastic unit at some point for the CD Player.

Hi Folks,

Please see the attached PDF on a review of the Bryston BCD-3 CD Player - please make note of the Lab tests!

"I am fairly certain that those are the best results Newport Test Labs has ever recorded for a CD player."

Hundreds according to the Australian distributor.

Hi

I do not think so - the BCD-3 has sold well and I think most people feel it will be the last CD Player they buy -  but time will tell I guess.

MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Bryston BCD-3 CD Player Review - Absolute Sound

November 2018

“I began this review process wondering if a player like the BCD-3 is even relevant in today’s digital world. I discovered, to my surprise, that it is. 

My next discovery was just how good the BCD-3 sounds, and how much of an improvement it represents over even excellent last-generation CD players.


Then, the Bryston went toe-to-toe with one of the best CD players available—without embarrassing itself in the least. Lastly, I discovered that the BCD-3’s upgrade path, which consists of turning itself into a transport to work with future or more expensive DACs, really works.

Put this together and you really do have what could be your last CD player. The BCD-3’s single-minded design and functionality delivers CD performance that doesn’t come along every day. And, as we’ve seen with the BCD-1, there’s no guarantee such a player will be here tomorrow. If I were choosing a CD player that wouldn’t break the bank but was unflinching in its musical and sonic generosity, the BCD-3 would be at the top of my list.”

Alan Taffel,
the absolute sound.

I generally love reading reviews from Absolute Sound - but honestly, I had to chuckle when Mr Taffel "discovered" the digital outputs on the back of the BCD3, and relates this discovery to a future "upgrade" path for BCD3 users. 

CD players have had digital outs for over 20 years and offer flexibility to the user. For Mr. Taffel to say any CD player with a high quality digital out is "future-proof" is a total stretch.  It's kind of like saying...if you buy a really really nice DAC...sometime in the future...you can make this CD player sound even better!  Wow, thanks for the brilliant tip Absolute Sound.  Maybe folks should start saving up now! 

sorry to rant folks.  :scratch:
