You know, conventional CD players seem to be going out of style in today’s culture. They aren’t seen much among the new technology featured at electronics conventions and exhibitions and actual CD sales have been in decline for years. Nowadays, music is available in the form of digital files and downloadable content for mobile, electronic devices like iPods and smartphones. So, the new BDP-01 High Resolution Digital Music Player from Bryston might be the product to replace CD players once and for all.
The BDP-01 is a Linux-based, standalone music player created to provide access to music from USB-equipped storage devices such as the iPhone, iPad and PCs. This device features a graphic interface, output connectivity options like AES-EBU (balanced) and BNC (spdif) jacks and electronic isolation of audio components from computers. The BDP-01 is also compatible with 16 and 24 bit files that have sample rates of 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 96 kHz, 176.4 kHz and 192 kHz. The Bryston BDP-01 Digital Music Player is available for $2,100 (MSRP), deliveries for it begin later in the year and it has a five-year warranty for parts and labor.
