The BDP-2 delivers improved interface speeds and both internal and external drive connectivity for managing larger music libraries
Peterborough, Ontario December 5th, 2012— Bryston LTD (www.bryston.com), builders of the world’s finest audio electronics and celebrating 50 years in 2012, has announced the introduction of the BDP-2 digital music player, an enhanced version of the venerable BDP-1 that accommodates larger music libraries with faster load times.
Both the BDP-1 and BDP-2 were designed to give music aficionados the ability to enjoy their library of high-resolution digital music files (resolutions of up to 24-bit/192kHz are supported) residing on a USB storage device, which in turn is directly connected via standard USB cable or thumb drive to the Bryston digital music player. New to the BDP-2 are six USB 2.0 inputs and upgradability to USB 3.0, future-proofing the device as a long term solution. Additionally, the BDP-2 contains eight times the internal memory and three times the processing speed compared to the BDP-1, which will remain in the Bryston lineup alongside the BDP-2. “The user interface and sonic qualities of the BDP-2 are identical to the BDP-1,” explained Bryston VP James Tanner. “We have given the BDP-2 NAS and eSATA drive connectivity, UPnP/DNLA client/server support and much more speed for those customers with very large libraries of music files,” Tanner added. “The BDP-2 is the logical step-up product in terms of features and functionality based upon the success we have had with the BDP-1,” Tanner concluded.
