Ps Audio has a very dynamic system. The volume was pretty loud. Couldn’t tell much about sound quality as a whole. 

 

Interesting comment ... if a setup is very dynamic, and can go pretty loud, that gives me excellent data for assessing the sound quality of the system.

Tells me nothing about delicacy, decay, and all aspects of sound that aren’t loudest

 

Most music has moments where delicacy and decay figure to some degree, so that aspect then comes into play - if the demo people deliberately chose tracks which were relentless in nature then of course this may not occur ... it's not good if people can't request a change of the style of the music being played.

They are showing the new BDA-3.14.

 

That’s been kept unusually quiet in the usual Bryston (audio) circles.  Putting streamer and DAC in one box is a big departure  for  them.

And those in the picture are not the big model, correct. 


Main listening (small home office):

Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>CAPS IV Pipeline Server + Sonore 12V PS>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.
 

Secondary Listening: CAPS Pipeline>IFi iOne DAC>Schiit Freya>Kii Three . Also an SBT and a RB Pi 3B+ running piCorePlayer as an SBT emulator. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

3.14=pi. Is it raspberry based like an earlier model?

Indiana and Tennessee too, I think, tried to legislate the rationality of pi.

 

That it is actually transcendental is true, but not that easy to prove.
