    BRYSTON had a huge hit on their hands with the BDA-1 and BDA-2. The BDA series firmly established their capabilities as a first rate manufacturer of not only top flight amplifiers, but top flight DAC's. The new BDA-3 continues BRYSTON's opportunity to add yet another, smash hit.

    The BRYSTON BDA-3 has been a smashing success. From around the world, glowing reviews have been written and BRYSTON's exceptional capabilities in the digital domain have been underlined. A state of the art external Stereo DAC (digital to analog converter) delivers superb sonic performance through re-sampling and re-clocking of the digital input signal. The most notable difference between the BDA-2 and BDA-3, in addition to PCM playback capable of 384kHz/32 bit resolution, is that the BDA-3 is fully DSD enabled. The BDA-3 can decode up to DSD-256, through asynchronous USB inputs, and accepts SACD input via HDMI.
