David McCallum has posted a review of the Bryston BDA-2 DAC ($2395) and BDP-2 music server ($2995) at HPSoundings. His conclusions:
“Both the BDA-2 and the BDP-2 offer subtle yet necessary advancements for Bryston’s digital front end products. While they aren’t billed as replacements (both the BDA-1 and BDP-1 are still available) the updates to the second-generation models reveal an awareness by Bryston of the speed at which trends in digital audio can change and adaptability to incorporate new features quickly. If you already own either a BDA-1 or BDP-1 these new units won’t change your life, but they should be more attractive than their predecessors to any new customer looking for either a new $2-$3k, DAC or digital audio player. Both are exceptional sounding products that would fit in well with any Hi-End audio system.”
