Bryston's BDA-3 digital to analog converter (DAC), the company’s highest resolution DAC to date has arrived! Pre-orders for the BDA-3 have broken all records for new product introductions at Bryston and continue to be brisk.
The Bryston BDA-3 is different from prior Bryston DAC’s in that it adds DSD playback. The BDA-3 can decode up to DSD-256 through the asynchronous USB inputs has the capability to accept SACD input via HDMI. For maximum flexibility, the BDA-3 has an astonishing ten discreet inputs including four 2-channel HDMI, asynchronous USB, AES/EBU, TOSLINK, and digital coax. It also includes Bryston’s network module, which facilitates control via TCP/IP and RS-232—a must for integration with modern smart home platforms. With the BDA-3, music aficionados get the very best playback of high-resolution digital files including DSD with the additional flexibility of being able to connect a television or Blu-ray player to their audio system.
The Bryston BDA-3 utilizes a brand new decoding chipset that can decode up to 384 kHz/32-bit PCM music and up to DSDx4 natively. Each format is processed in its native resolution, preserving absolute bit-perfect signals all the way to the analog outputs. Additionally, Bryston’s ultra-precise re-clocking circuit reduces jitter to nearly immeasurable levels.Bryston’s proprietary analog section is completely free of integrated circuits (ICs) that limit the bandwidth and dynamic range of so many competitive DACs.
