BRYSTON BDA-3 DAC REVIEW - CARLO LO RASO


Hi Folks

Please see below link to an outstanding and detailed review of our Bryston BDA-3 DAC.

“THE BRYSTON BDA-3 DAC is almost the perfect nexus of sonic and tactile excellence. You could spend more, but why?”

Favourite Quotes:

“If you want to hear it all, and I mean every last bit of it, plunk down your pocketbook on a Bryston BDA-3. You will not regret it.”

“These are examples of some of the measurements that I took to put the Line Linearity chart together. A series of fifteen measurements of a 24-bit, 1 kHz tone beginning at -20 dBFS and getting progressively lower in level to -150 dBFS were taken.

This defines “dead quiet.”

Hi, James.

Wanted to let you know my used Bryston purchases have now led to my first new Bryston purchase.

My local dealer (Mike Burns, Wolfsong Audio, can’t say enough good about Mike) was kind enough to bring his BDA-3 to my house today for a “shoot out” against my BDA-2, with associated BP26/28B3/Thiel CS6. Long story short the BDA-3 clearly put more “meat on the bones” of voices ( clearer portrayal of guttural, throaty sounds), guitars (hearing players not just change positions on the guitar neck but hearing their fingers slide down the strings), piano decays extended and image size expanded, etc vs what I was already convinced was an outstandingly musical BDA-2 performance. I placed an order with Mike for a BDA-3, considering also the more modular build approach of the BDA-3 for future upgradabilty.

Bravo to the Bryston Team! Have a great weekend,

Randy

... the Bryston DAC is not simply good, it is staggeringly good.

“Staggeringly Good” is exactly how I felt. And that was right out of the box. It’s even better now. Talk about bang for the buck!
