    Re: Bryston BDA-3 Has Arrived

    I've been using my BDA-3 for about 3+ years now ... it's a wonderful sounding DAC! Good luck getting it set up. Mine's been very low maintenance and I was even able to get my Logitech programmable remote to send the appropriate codes to the DAC to change sources and power on/off

    Talked to Adam Tanner this afternoon and we finally got the BDA-3 running on all cylinders.

    It's a little early for impressions as we just got all the bugs out, but just getting the right lights lit on the panel makes me feel good. It makes me want to play all my HiRez files.

    Jack-

    Congrats on the DAC! Been a BDP3 happy camper for over four years myself.
    Bryston as you know has stellar customer service.
    Can you elaborate on the USB issues you experienced and how they were corrected?

    Enjoy the Sounds!

    John, I was not getting any resolution except 48 kHz when I played my HiRez files. I sent a couple of emails to Bryston and then Adam Tanner called me and he basically took control of my PC from his end and did the trouble shooting and got all the right settings in place. It would have taken me a month of Sundays to do what he did in 15 minutes.

    Very good Jack.
    Getting a PC to play nice with one's audio system can be most daunting.
    glad it worked out!
