Bryston BCD-1 CD Player

14 July 2011

At the low end, we find Millennials downloading compressed MP3s rather than purchasing CDs.

Bryston BCD-1 CD Player

Bryston BCD-1 CD Player

16 September 2007
  • Summary: With the BCD-1, Bryston has succeeded in building a CD player worthy of the company name. I haven't heard flagship players from other companies, but the BCD-1 is the best digital component I have heard. There may be better disc spinners out there, but I guarantee that many that are competitive with the BCD-1 cost multiples of its price and more than likely offer a different sound rather than one that's obviously better.

Bryston BCD-1 - Kanadischer Purist

23 October 2009
  • Conclusion: Der Bryston BCD-1 erwies sich im Test als exzellent verarbeiteter, überaus neutral, gleichzeitig aber wahrhaft detailverliebt aufspielender CD-Player, der mit zeitlos elegantem Design aufwartet und somit ein erstklassiges Preis/Leistungsverhältnis bietet.
  • Pros: Überaus detailreicher, natürlicher Klang, exzellente Verarbeitung, zeitlos elegant
  • Cons: Keinerlei Nachteile ersichtlich

Bryston BCD-1: покоритель сердец

27 May 2009
  • Excerpt: С продукцией компании Bryston мы уже знакомы, и, надо сказать, ее усилители мощности в нашей иерархии HighEnd-ценностей занимают самые высокие позиции. Фирменные предусилители тоже оставили очень хорошее впечатление, но все же не покорили наших сердец. Так что понятен интерес, с которым мы подошли к тестированию. Читать далее...
