Yes a new design for both the BP17 and BP2

HI Folks,

Please see the attached review from the July 2019 Stereophile magazine regarding the BP-17 Preamplifers ‘INTERNAL’ MM Phono Stage and DAC.

Please note the superb RIAA accuracy and and the excellent signal to noise ratio in the phono stage as well as the outstanding measurements of the digital section.

“This is a very quiet Phono Stage”.

Thanks for passing along James - very impressive specs on the Phono! Just wondering if the internal phono benefits from being in a pre like the bp-17(3) that supports the Salomie circuit.

Hi

Yes because the Phono section connects directly to the new Salomie input stage. Same in the B135 integrated amp.

Hello James - does the B135 also have the Salomie input stage?

I just installed the optional phono stage in my BP-17(3) and I have to say it is fantastic. It is the exact same MM board that goes into the Bryston BP-2. (One small difference is that you cant change the mm capacitance loading the way you can in the BP-2)

Got it on a whim to try it out because the Stereophile review was so good. From a sonics standpoint -- compared to cost no object phono stages, I'd rate the board as very very good to excellent. IMHO It is so good that I plan to add a step up transformer for my moving coil, sell my outboard phono stage, and call it a day.
