Oh nooo ! Now it's official, you're all tempting me ! I hate you ! My wife's gone kill me if I bring this toy home !
But, to be honest, having already a BP26/MPS-2 and BDA-1, how could it be otherwise ? (not sure she'll hear that
OK, I'll try to wait... a little. I'm just a little bit disappointed to know that the front fascia rounded sides and buttons have a different design than my other Bryston stuff (my "old" BDA-1 is serial #000010
While I'm here, I also wanted to give my answer to a previous post regarding the best hardware/software CD ripping combination. My best proposal would be a Plextor Premium2 with PlexTools Professional XL v3.16. This only-CD drive (only CD, no trade-off to make with the lens/block quality just to have DVD reading capability...) is the last one really built by Plextor, in Japan (yes ! in Japan, not a chinese scam), and PlexTools Professional XL is just the perfect soft made by Plextor to ensure perfect digital extraction using its drives.
As far as I know, the Premium2 is not available anymore unless you do a lot of searches through the web.http://www.plextor-digital.com/index.php/en/Product-Archive/premium-2.html
PlexTools Professional XL v3.16 is available here (now free, but only useable with "old" Plextor drives):http://www.plextor-digital.com/index.php/component/option,com_jdownloads/Itemid,55/catid,86/task,viewcategory/
And if you can't find a Premium2, I have no idea which recent drive is good at audio CD extraction.
As regards the software, using a non Plextor drive, my choice would definitely be either dBpoweramp or Exact Audio Copy. Both have the useful "AccurateRip" function (or "not so AccurateRip" function if, like Plextor, you have doubts in the absolute zero reference offset used by these softwares, perfectionists can see http://www.digital-inn.de/exact-audio-copy-english/28787-andre-wiethoff-who-feels-have-say-offsets-4.html
Enjoy your new toys !
