Recently upgraded to the Lumin A-1 which has an internal DAC; hence the sale.
From Absolute Sound:

"The BDA-2 portrays instruments with vivid three-dimensional body, precise focus, and rich timbres, but in a natural and unforced manner. It is the first DAC in my experience to completely eliminate “peak shriek”—the unfortunate tendency for high- level transients to induce momentary dynamic instability, thereby imposing a sharp, shrill edginess during musical peaks. We have had to put up with this fatiguing digital artifact for so long now that hearing a product that finally banishes it from the listening room is cause for a rousing standing ovation. I spent hours indulging in this unique virtue of the BDA-2, delighting in the freedom to enjoy digital music at louder levels than with lesser DACs—tellingly, with the same abandon that I experience when listening to records played on my Goldmund turntable.

Much of the BDA-2’s remarkable transparency must be due to its preternaturally low noise floor. Bryston cites a noise figure of -140dB, and turning my preamp volume control all the way up leaves no reason to doubt this claim. With electronic distortions reduced to vanishingly low levels, music blooms and decays with lifelike ease. This freedom from low-level interference is complemented by imperturbable handling of high-level crescendos, without overshoot or ringing. Listening to large-scale orchestral recordings through the BDA-2 is a revelation, as each instrument’s distinctive timbral signature is maintained without alteration throughout its full dynamic envelope."
