I see you got yourself a BDP-2. Congratulations!
I own a Bryston BDA-2 and a custom-built triode DAC isnpired by early Lampizator designs. It's about 10 years old but sound fantastic with CD quality material.
As for the Bryston BDA-2, at the time I was looking at a 2500-3000 € DAC and auditioned several DACs, including Exposure 2010S2, M2Tech Young, NAD M51, Musical Fidelity M6DAC and the Bryston BDA-2. All of them were good but in the end I narrowed the choice down to the NAD, Musical Fidelity and Bryston. NAD seemed to have a bit more resolving power and Musical Fidelity seemed to have a more solid bottom end. I felt that Bryston was a good compromise between the two, especially because it seemed to sound more dynamic in the midrange. The differences were small mind you. I almost went for the NAD because it was really superb but the build of it's chassis and connectors wasn't inspiring as I often mix and match different things. I mus also say that NAD, while the most affordable of the three, was technologically the most advanced DAC I had ever seen. It has no conventional DAC chips and works on entirely different principle. I remember being quite stunned while reading the white paper NAD published to explain how it works.
That being said, the fact I don't like about Bryston is their 'penchant' for charging you extra. It doesn't come with a remote control for instance and yet it has an IR receiver.
