Bryston has announced the introduction of the new BP-173 (Cubed Series) preamplifier, utilising patented technology that debuted on the Cubed Series amplifiers. The BP-173 also features a new expanded input/output configuration for enhanced system flexibility. Like all analogue components from Bryston, the BP-173 is covered by a 20 year warranty.

Bryston’s say that their patented linear, low noise input buffer jointly developed by Bryston and the late Ph.D. engineer Dr. Ioan Alexandru Salomie “significantly reduces noise and distortion”. The BP-173 also has improved RF and audio frequency noise filtering.

The BP-17³ offers expanded input/output options, including two pairs of XLR outputs and two pairs of RCA outputs, making it possible to connect a wide variety of equipment and accommodate numerous system configurations. An RCA tape loop lets users connect a line-level processor or recording device and one of the XLR output pairs can be internally selected to have either variable (default) or fixed output enabling users to easily connect a Bryston BHA-1 or other balanced input headphone amplifier. The BP-173 also includes two pairs of balanced inputs and five pair RCA inputs, and can be ordered with a high-resolution internal DAC, a premium moving magnet phono stage, both DAC and phono modules or without either module installed. Users can select sources, adjust volume and more all from the optional BR-2 remote control or via RS232 connection to virtually any control ecosystem. The BP-173 is available in either black or silver, 17-inch or 19-inch (wide) faceplates.

The BP-17³ will begin shipping to authorised dealers in September, 2017 with a US MSRP of $3995. The DAC and phono stage options have an MSRP of $750 each. The BR-2 remote has an MSRP of $375.

Pre-order special:

Customers that place a pre-order for the BP-173 by August 31st will qualify for one optional accessory at no additional cost: Choose from an internal phono stage, internal DAC or BR-2 remote control.
