Hi James

Hi Sully

No plans on that front.

So, is there any chance of wireless or some sort of network player built in? As Mr. J.T. indicated there could be a DAC loaded in the unit. I have a BP26 that is about 10 years plus and it is a very nice build and sound quality, it has a phono with MM/MC built in. I like the remote power supply, gives it class and a sense of elegance. I've been waiting for Mr. Bryston to build a new high end pre.

Elizabeth,

I'm waiting for one that will fill out TurboTax and file the return.

All right!
We all want a full AI preamp, which besides sounding really great, and which can manage our retirement portfolio, Arrange weddings, anniversaries, quote all the great authors with pity statement was needed, wash the dishes, win big time all sports gambling wagers, clean the house, do the laundry, take the kids to school and back AND go to any and all meetings.. Buy groceries, sort the trash for recycling, do our taxes, Decode all forms of communication including all alien transmissions from outer space, Have a least a gazillion connections, and only cost $14.95 with a hundred year warranty.
We are waiting.

These are very good points.  Frankly, I will stay away from any high-end preamp with a built-in digital section.  An analogue preamp can easily provide excellent fidelity for 10-20 years.  In contrast digital, especially HDMI, changes every 3-4 years.  I much prefer to buy a new DAC every 5-6 years if I can hear a difference.
I’d definitely stay away too. Unless I can easily swap out the digital section of it. I’d still be a bit weary though; what if I didn’t like it, but liked the analog section? What if the digital section upgrades weren’t as good as other sources? What about price? Too many what ifs.

I accept some things will be obsolete far quicker than others, just the inherent nature of things. Sources are at the top of that list, minus turntables.

All I really want for Christmas from Santa (Bryston) is a nice EQ box. With five knobs, Bass, midbass, lower mids, upper mids, treble. with five more knobs giving the 'Q' of each tone control knob. and a 'Q' defeat switch for each, for those confused by 'Q'.
A switch with three positions for 'low level' listening. off, moderate, full.
And a master volume.

Hopefully, and based off what I'm hearing in the thread, the DAC section would be a replaceable module.  If that's the case, it would be absolutely ideal and provide a preamp that isn't out dated 10 or more years down the read.

A Bryston with tone controls would be like a McIntosh without them.   :rotflmao:

I think they would be great alongside the built in dishwasher/pizza oven.  8)

It's good that you're able to hear that above all the silly non-productive noise.  ;)

I'd be happy with a separate, decent, 5-channel EQ.  (Not a built-in, but a separate, with own power supply, with both RCA and XLR inputs and outputs.) 

The ones I've tried are somewhat shoddy.

Hi James

Do you sell a longer power cable that connects the BP-26 and the MPS-2  so the MPS-2 can be placed further away or on a different shelf?

I'm getting a BP-26 for my son, and he asked me.
