The Bryston BDA-3.14 is an enhancement of the multi-award-winning BDA-3 DAC that can decode up to 384kHz/32-bit PCM music and up to DSDx4 natively, so that each format is processed at its native resolution, without any fidelity-reducing sampling-rate conversions. As with the BDA-3, the BDA-3.14 has ten discrete inputs including four two-channel HDMI connections, asynchronous USB, AES/EBU, TOSLINK, and digital coaxial, plus it includes Bryston’s network module, which facilitates control via TCP/IP and RS-232. But the BDA-3.14 also offers streaming capabilities via a built-in music player that delivers access to network-connected storage and USB drives as well as streaming services such as Qobuz, Tidal, Roon and Internet radio. The BDA-3.14’s digital volume control enables users to use it to drive an amplifier directly, thus eliminating the need for a preamplifier. No need for a remote, either, because the Bryston BDA-3.14 can be controlled via a phone, tablet or computer using Bryston’s recently-updated ‘Manic Moose’ user interface.
‘The Bryston BDA-3.14 delivers the performance and unmatched build quality that music aficionados and audiophiles have come to expect from Bryston,’ said George Poutakidis, of BusiSoft AV, which distributes Bryston in Australia. ‘It’s a sleek, easy-to-use ultimate performance streamer/DAC that has all the features and facilities necessary to make it an essential inclusion in any modern home entertainment system.’
Available in Australia now, the Bryston BDA-3.14 sells for $6,499 (RRP).
