Well, I bought this about 6 months ago and I have come to the conclusion that I am not a streaming type of person. If you are looking at this then you probably already know what it is, if not I encourage you to read up on it online.
It's "Roon Ready" which unfortunately doesn't really mean much to me since I don't stream. Funny thing, this is my 3rd attempt to stream... trying to move into the modern times lol.
1st attempt was PS Audio DAC mkII with the network adapter, it was cool for a little while but I still enjoy loading a disc into a player.
2nd attempt was with a Sony HAP-Z1ES (still have that) but I find that when I want to use it I just use it directly from the front panel, it's collecting dust now...
Anyway now to this unit, I had overlooked Bryston gear for many years, considering them more as pro audio than audiophile, that proved to be a mistake when I purchased my first BHA-1 headphone amp, and followed that with the BDA-2 DAC. Those pieces are excellent IMO, so when the itch to try streaming again came up, I bought the BDP-Pi and alas I have come to the final conclusion that I am just not a streaming person.
The unit is in excellent condition, works perfectly fine, but I just don't like using apps to stream music. I was considering buying the matching BOT-1 disc drive, but I read online that some people have had luck with external drives for PC use, well my trusty external LG drive actually seems to work with this unit, when you connect it to the BDP-Pi the software actually shows "BOT-1" and I was able to play some music from the external drive using the software.
Alas without the optional BR2 remote you cannot directly control the external drive, so the unit has sat there collecting dust for the past 4 or 5 months (maybe longer). I also didn't want to have to have a hardwire ethernet connection so I found this Yamaha wireless ethernet adapter and it works very well with the BDP-Pi. The adapter is powered from one of the available USB ports on the BDP-Pi and will connect to your WiFi network. Once you have that initially setup for the first time, it automatically connects anytime afterwards when you turn the BDP-Pi on.
Getting back to the BDP-Pi itself, Bryston has the best warranty out there and all you have to do is provide them with the serial number and date code and the warranty will be transferred to you. You can also seek out James Tanner on the forums and he'll register your items if you provide him with the serial number and date code, it's truly phenomenal support.
The BDP-Pi will ship in it's original factory box/packaging. The manual is a color version printed professionally in a size that fits in the box. There was no manual when I purchased this and I don't really know if they come with a hard copy manual as most of the information is online at Bryston's website. The Yamaha wireless adapter will also come with it's original box/manual, but I can't find the box for the LG drive.
All of the items will be placed into a second box for shipping. Free shipping in the lower 48 states and no PayPal fees.
These retail for $1,500 so I wouldn't hesitate too long if you are looking at this as I would expect that it will sell quick at this price. The wireless adapter retailed for about $80 and the LG drive was about $40 when I bought it years ago. I can't guarantee that the LG drive behaves exactly like the BOT-1 but as mentioned the software does display BOT-1 when it is connected. Consider the LG drive and the Yamaha wireless adapters as bonus items, which hopefully will work for you as they did for me but no guarantees on those.
Check my feedback and buy with confidence. Will be shipped insured via FedEx ground with a signature required.
Thanks for looking!
