Thanks, all ! I hope to have the new player in time for Christmas. I doubt I'll ever stream music, but you never know ... stranger things have happened.

You will truly enjoy the BCD-3. You may want to consider ordering to remote control - it controls a few Bryston products. I too was looking for a CD/SACD player but the BCD-3 plays redbook CDs so eloquently I do not feel you will miss that extra layer of data. This could very well be the last CDP you ever own.

Thank you, miner. I did in fact get the remote. I can't wait until the player arrives.

You owe to yourself to trying streaming. Its a great complement to having CDs.

I assume you received your BCD-3 by now, are you enjoying it?

Agree, it's a great complement, but not a perfect substitute in my experience. I have the BCD-1 as well as the BR-20 preamp/DAC/streamer, and though I probably use the streamer (Tidal & Roon) 80% of the time, when I want to sit down and listen to a great recording (mostly classical), I use the CD player.

The difference in sound quality may be small and subtle, but there is definitely one, at least with my setup (which might be a function of Internet speed and other factors outside of the audio system's control, of course).

I hope you're enjoying the BCD-3 by now.

I also have a BCD-3 which I happen to enjoy very much (when time permits).

I’m sure the BCD-3 will give you the same experience.

To be honest, I play most of my music (a lot!) streaming via Tidal through my BDP-2.

What DAC are you using? I have the Bryston BDA-3 on order which I had on demo in my house for a few week’s and loved it!
I ordered my BDA-3 on December 9th of last year and it arrived at my dealer on the 10th of January. Trying to get the USB Audio working now.
