Bryston BDA-3.14 Streaming DAC UK Show Debut

Bryston's BDA-3.14 streaming DAC will be enjoying its UK debut at The Bristol Hi-Fi Show this weekend.

Coming in from Ontario, Canada, Bryston's BDA-3.14 boasts a built-in music player, onboard digital volume control and updated user interface. Moreover, it will have its UK premiere at the Bristol Show.

Announced in September, the BDA-3.14 (£4,000) offers network streaming skills thanks to a built-in music player that will slurp up your digital audio from NAS and USB drives as well as streaming services such as Qobuz, Tidal, Roon and Internet radio. The music player chats with the DAC via the premium I2S protocol interface that preserves audio and clock data with virtually zero error, says Bryston.

The BDA-3.14 also features digital volume control so that it can drive a power amplifier directly. An updated version of Bryston's “Manic Moose” user interface for phones, tablets and computers hands you intuitive control.
The BDA-3 DAC can decode up to 384 kHz/32-bit PCM music and up to DSDx4 natively with formats being processed at their native resolution. The upshot of that is the preservation of bit-perfect signals to the analogue outputs. Additionally, we're told, Bryston's ultra-precise re-clocking circuit reduces jitter to nearly unmeasurable levels.

Finally, the BDA-3 features 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.
