Bryston BDA-1

The Bryston BDA-1 as a state-of-the-art external stereo DAC. Built fully discrete in class A, it features two fully separated linear power supplies and a double Crystal CD4398 DAC chip.

It offers USB, COAX, optical, AES-EBU and BNC inputs. There are current standards which you will find on your CD player. It is outside of the scope of this description to explain the entire fantastic process in this DAC. But you can read all about it on the Bryston website.

f a nanosecond) and improve the signal by increasing the bitdepth wherein information is stored for later processing.

The difference can be clearly heard. The Bryston BDA-1 has a switch which allows you to disable up-sampling.

Furthermore, the entire Bryston DAC has been constructed in the same manner as everything else from Bryston. Several independent power supplies for the digital and analogue sections, extra gold-plated contact points for connectors and switches.

This DAC sores to rarely achieved musical heights. Superlatives fall short when describing the difference with regular DACs. Bryston succeeded beyond expectation in raising the bar when it comes to improving digital signal processing to the level of traditional audio in the high-end segment.
