Further Info On New Bryston Pre
Posted on August 8th, 2017
Bryston’s patented super-linear, low noise input buffer jointly developed by Bryston and the late Ph.D.
engineer Dr. Ioan Alexandru Salomie significantly reduces noise and distortion. The BP-173 also has
improved RF and audio frequency noise filtering to prevent unwanted anomalies on the power line from
interfering even minutely with the audio signal.
The BP-17³ offers expanded input/output options, including two pairs of XLR outputs and two pairs of
RCA outputs, making it possible to connect a wide variety of equipment and accommodate numerous
system configurations. An RCA tape loop lets users connect a line-level processor or recording device
and one of the XLR output pairs can be internally selected to have either variable (default) or fixed
output enabling users to easily connect a Bryston BHA-1 or other balanced input headphone amplifier.
The BP-173 also includes two pairs of balanced inputs and five pair RCA inputs, and can be ordered with
a high-resolution internal DAC, a premium moving magnet phono stage, both DAC and phono modules
or without either module installed. Users can select sources, adjust volume and more all from the
optional BR-2 remote control or via RS232 connection to virtually any control ecosystem. The BP-173 is
available in either black or silver, 17-inch or 19-inch (wide) faceplates.*
