Another general agreement with RandyH.
Left unstated is the effect a single clock has on decreasing jitter. The DAC uses the same chips (2) and input-output philosophy of the Bryston BDA-3 DAC. The player mechanism, IMO, is excellent, and provides impeccable "audio out" smoothness - -the best I've experienced to date. (It can be replaced, if necessary, and Bryston has spares in stock. It's the best CD spinner I've ever tried or owned.
I have an extensive classical CD collection, and haven't had any trouble with misfeeds. You have to be precise in loading the CD to be certain it's properly seated; however, that quickly becomes second nature.
I'm in total agreement: Bryston should provide a dedicated remote for this CD Player. I have one if their "One model fits all" metal brick remotes, and I have it set up for my BCD-3; however, it's a royal PITA to use if, like me, you have less-than-perfect eyesight. ( Like other owners, i also use a third-party remote.)
Hope this helps,
