Bryston BDP-1 Digital Music Player

The new BDP-1 BDP-1 Digital Music Player from Bryston is a high-performance audio bridge device that can be used with nearly any type of digital audio file to playback music that's stored on a hard drive or residing on a network.


The BDP-1 from Bryston is a digital music playback device that works with USB-based hard drives and thumb drives, and the product does not require network connectivity to work.

With the sales of digital music soaring and the amount of music streaming websites literally increasing everyday consumers are looking for more ways to integrate their new music and audio consumption habits into solutions that work with their current lifestyles.

Bryston's new BDP-1 Digital Music Player is a component that allows music listeners to connect any USB-based storage device, including hard drives and thumb drives to play music files with resolutions up to 24-bit/192kHz, and through the implementation of a Linux-based operating system that's been written specifically for the playback of audio files, users can enjoy a quality digital music listening experience.

The BDP-1 also incorporates an industrial-grade motherboard, along with a Bryston soundcard, and AES-EBU balanced and BNC (SPDIF) output section to ensure the highest level of sound delivery. In addition, the company points out that the unit does not employ a switch-mode power supply, CD ripping functions, an internal music streaming circuit, hard drive, fan or DACs. According to the Canadian high-performance audio manufacturer, the elimination of these components allows the BDP-1 to operate quietly.
