Since Bryston began developing products for digital playback enthusiasts, one thing has been constant - separate components for streaming and D to A. That changes with our new BDA-3.14. We've merged our BDP and BDA platforms into this one new product that starts with our BDA-3 and adds a high quality streamer internally connected with I²S - the most accurate digital interconnection method currently available. Additionally, 10 other inputs are available to make the BDA-3.14 your high resolution digital hub.

Reviews:

  • Diapason d'Or Special Award (March 2021)
  • The BDA-3.14 has a solid and immediately likable sound with great resolution, perfect natural timbre (no artifice) and lively dynamics and without any hardness or edge. Along with the propulsive liveliness, it also has a subtle smoothness and fluidity that makes the end result revealing yet forgiving. (Christiaan Punter - HiFi Advice) Read Review...

    Bryston’s BDA-3 DAC

    Posted by Karl Schuster - The Absolute Sound on 3rd Jun 2021

    Bryston’s BDA-3 DAC surpasses the high-value performance standard set by the BDA-2, enables inexpensive HDMI-equipped disc players to function as premium source components, and adds exceptionally engaging DSD playback to its potent mix of virtues. I’ve already purchased the review sample as my new reference.

    StereoLife Magazine – BDA-3.14

    Posted by Tomasz Karasiński - Polish SteroLife on 3rd Jun 2021

    This may surprise some, but in my opinion Canadian engineers are particularly good at digital sources...A player that will appeal to both audiophiles and music lovers... The combination of Bryston and Roon supported by hi-res files and access to TIDAL is in my opinion a masterful package. https://bryston.com/stereolife-magazine-bda-3-14/

    Diapason d'Or Special Award (March 2021)

    Posted by Diapason d'Or on 10th Mar 2021

    The most astonishing thing is that this multitude is deployed in a grandiose soundscape that completely shatters the classic geometry of the listening triangle, not only in its standardized dimension but also in its tone and dynamic capacity, able to rediscover your speakers as they transposed into a larger world, more ventilated and freer. An ... addictive experience
