PRICE REDUCED - Bryston BP-25DA offered for sale, in very clean condition from a non-smoking home. This unit has been used gently, daily since purchased in 2009, date code 0418, serial number 253236. The only flaw is a couple of very faint scratches on the top which are so faint that they cannot be seen in the photos; there are no nicks or marring anywhere on any other surface of the preamplifier, power supply, or remote, all included in the box.
This unit has an extremely high-quality built-in DAC, which allows direct connection of two digital sources by coaxial input. I will provide (2) 1-meter Mogami Gold interconnects if you purchase both this preamplifier and the 3B-ST amplifier I have also listed.
Description: Full-function, transformer-input preamplifier with remote control for volume, mute, and phase. Inputs: four pairs of RCA unbalanced inputs, two pairs of balanced female XLR inputs, two coaxial digital inputs. Outputs: two pairs single-ended on RCA jacks, one pair balanced on XLR jacks, tape output on RCA jacks. Line Section: maximum output 15V unbalanced, 30V balanced. Distortion: <0.0025% at 3V output, IM or THD. Sensitivity: 500mV. S/N ratio: 100dB ref. 500mV unbalanced input, 20Hz-20kHz; 103dB ref. 11V balanced input, 20Hz-20kHz.
DAC: Preamplifier provides a digital interface using state-of-the-art Digital to Analogue Converters on 2 switchable Stereo SPDIF inputs (RCA) and Bryston's fully discrete Class A operational amplifier sections. This Digital to Analog option provides a state of the art upgrade path for customers wanting to improve the digital capability of their stereo CD or DVD players. Simply plug the digital out from the CD/DVD player into the Bryston BP25 DA. The quality of sound using fully discrete operational amplifiers, rather than the typical IC's, has to be heard to be believed.
The D to A and Bryston Discrete Operational Amplifiers are on an independent circuit board and is offered as an option on the BP25 Preamplifier.
FEATURES INCLUDE: Bryston proprietary Class A Discrete Operational Amplifiers State-Of-The-Art Crystal Semiconductor CS 43122 DAC's DAC clock is totally asynchronous from incoming clock to eliminate Jitter 16 kHz to 108 kHz input sample rate 24 Bit word length capability Input transformer for precise impedance matching and ground isolation Two independent grounds - one digital - one analog Separate regulation of DAC and Digital input receiver prevents interference between digital and analog signals
