This BD-2 is like new with very few hours of playing time. The reason it is rated "9" instead of "10" is that AudiogoN says you are not to classify it as "Mint" condition nor "10" rating if it is over one year old. The unit is in warranty, however. Bryston warrants all analog parts and wiring for 20 years and digital for 5 years from the date of manufacture, including parts and labor. The BDA-2 has a 17" silver faceplate.
The Absolute Sound raved about the Bryston BDA-2 DA converter. " I can not think of a higher praise, nor can I imagine living without it. "
Due to its incredibly low noise floor of -140dB, music flows with remarkable transparency whether you are downloading or listening to CD's. It is the only DAC in the reviewers experience to completely eliminate " peak shriek " - a sharp shrill edginess during musical peaks. " We have had to put up with these fatiguing digital artifacts so long now that hearing a product that finally banishes it from the listening room is cause for a rousing standing ovation. "
We have become so used to all the digital artifacts that add glare, grain or brightness in the upper octaves, you may wonder at first if the BDA-2 is lacking in high frequency extension. You will be able to prove to yourself quickly that the only thing missing from the BDA-2's treble range is distortion
