BDA-3.14 External DAC

The Bryston BDA-3.14 keeps all the same features as the award winning BDA-3 while adding streaming flexibility via a built-in Raspberry Pii. Essentially, combining the features of the BDA-3 and the BDP-Pi to provide a fully functioning DAC capable of operating as a standalone unit for streaming your favorite audio content. Streaming capability via a built-in music player delivers access to network-connected storage and USB drives as well as streaming services such as Qobuz, Tidal, Roon and Internet radio.

The BDA-3.14 is a world class DAC that is packed with the perfect mix of features, making it an essential part of your digital audio chain. Use diverse audio sources such as Bryston's BDP digital music players, computers, music servers, and CD players to get the most accurate and superb sounding digital playback currently available. The BDA-3.14 delivers superb sonic performance through re-sampling and re-clocking of the digital input signal.

Digital connectivity between the internal music player and the DAC is managed using the I²S protocol, a premium interface standard used for connecting digital audio devices together, perserving audio and clock data with virtually zero error. The BDA-3.14 also features a digital volume control, enabling users to drive an amplifier directly. An updated version of Bryston’s Manic Moose user interface for phones, tablets and computers provides users with intuitive control over all functionality.
