Bryston has announced the introduction of the BDP-π digital music player, joining the BDP-2 in Bryston’s lineup of digital players aimed at real music enthusiasts. The BDP-π is available now and lists for $1,295.
The BDP-π features advanced Bryston hardware and software built upon the Raspberry Pi and HifiBerry platform giving users fast response to commands and superb overall performance all from a chassis 1/3 the width of Bryston’s full-sized player. The BDP-π will playback digital music ranging from MP3 to lossless 24/192 high-resolution files and can be connected to virtually any DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) using the provided S/PDIF, Toslink, USB and HDMI connectors. The BDP-π is a complete digital entertainment hub — users can connect an external drive to access limitless libraries of digital content, gain access to their favorite Internet radio stations and enjoy lossless TIDAL streaming (subscription required).
The BDP-π is also a Roon Ready device. Roon Labs has created a software solution that delivers the ultimate user experience by merging Bryston’s exceptional BDP digital playback hardware with an intuitive, graphically rich music library management and playback software.
