Bryston has introduced the BDA-3.14 multi-function DAC that adds an array of features to the BDA-3 DAC platform.

The BDA-3.14 offers streaming capability via a built-in music player that delivers access to network-connected storage and USB drives as well as streaming services such as Qobuz, Tidal, Roon and Internet radio.

Bryston Manic Moose

Digital connectivity between the internal music player and the DAC is managed using the I2S protocol, a premium interface standard used for connecting digital audio devices together that preserves audio and clock data with virtually zero error. The BDA-3.14 also features a digital volume control, enabling users to drive an amplifier directly. An updated version of Bryston’s Manic Moose user interface for phones, tablets and computers provides users with intuitive control over all functionality.

Bryston DAC Technology

The BDA-3 DAC can decode up to 384 kHz/32-bit PCM music and up to DSDx4 natively. Each format is processed in its native resolution, preserving  bit-perfect signals all the way to the analogue outputs. Additionally, Bryston’s  re-clocking circuit reduces jitter to “nearly unmeasurable levels”. Bryston’s proprietary analogue section is completely free of integrated circuits (ICs) . For maximum flexibility, the BDA-3 has ten discrete 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.

“Bryston is excited to be able to deliver the exceptionally high performance of our digital music player and our DAC merged into a single chassis solution,” stated Gary Dayton, VP of Sales & Marketing at Bryston. “Now music enthusiasts can enjoy a sleek, easy-to-use ultimate performance streamer/DAC combo as centerpiece of their digital entertainment system.”

RMAF 2019

Bryston will also be at RMAF 2019, Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center 4th floor Presidential suite, Room 4-105
