I have the exact same 'issue' with my 3.14, switch it off and the on/off light goes from green to red and the input light goes off and comes back on when the on/off light goes red which looks a bit strange.

Regards

Stuart

Hi Willy

I have not heard of the LED issue before but they are controlled by software.

Are you using 2 different sources - CD player and another Blueray player? -- If you can I would check with another digital source other than the CD player into the 3.14 DAC to see if the source is the issue.  Also try the XLR digtal output as well as the COAX from the CD player to see if things change.

Other wise I am at a loss as I have the same hookup at home and all seems fine.

PS - also check the cable?

Hi James,

Thanks for the suggestion. I have no explanation why, but there was definitely something wrong with the cabling. Everything is fine now, except for the sometimes strange behaviour of the LEDs.

My BCD-3 sounds very good, but my BDA-3.14 is even better. The sound is cleaner, crisper also. Not a difference of day and night, but clearly audible. Needless to say that I am very pleased with both devices.

To: James and Stuart,

Coincidence or not, but since I removed the Scratch Disk, the BDA-3.14 behaves normally as far as the LEDs concern. When switched off, the standby LED changes from green to red, all other LEDs go off. I will keep you informed.

Hi James,

The BDA-3.14 is still functioning as it should, so no issues with the LEDs.

My 3.14 when power off the the Optical/Streamer Led will stay on intermittently, hopes next firmware update would fix it.

There is new software available for the BDA-3.14. You could give it a try.

WillyP

PS Do you use a scratch disk?

Thanks Willy, I don't use scratch disk, I only connected with Lan and streaming NAS files and Tidal through Roon,  updated latest software problem persists, the issue seems like after using Roon.

Hi James,

After the two S2.44 updates the problem is back! The LED above the Optical / Streaming button turns to yellow after the BDS-3.14 is switched off.

Hopefully, Chris can fix this in a future update.

Hi Willy

I am not sure but that may be a hardware issue - check with Mike - mpickett@bryston.com

I have the BDA 3 connected to an Oppo UDP 205 and love the result.
Thinking about a streamer now.

Greetings

I had a Cambridge Audio CXN(2015)  which packed it in and  previously had enjoyed.  I am now working with a new BDP-Pi  and am waiting for a RME-ADI -2 DAC FS   to go with it.  It has been a learning curve to understand the BDP-Pi and get  music from my NAS onto the BDP. I am sure it will be with the DAC when it comes.  To answer the question James posed, I had been a separates guy before the CXN.  Unhappy with the thought of sending it to New York to get it fixed I turned to Bryston which builds them in the town where I live and for whom I have affection with an Amp(B60) and a BP-1 Bryston phono stage both bought in 1998, and still going strong and confident that if there is a problem with them they will fix it.. I am over 80 so doubt I will be around in twenty one years to still enjoy the BDP-Pi.
