BCD-3 CD Player Review by The Absolute Sound

Alan Taffel of The Absolute Sound, recently reviewed the BCD-3. Our superbly engineered CD player is purpose built for CD playback and nothing else. Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the review:

There’s something to be said for doing one thing and doing it well. The Bryston BCD-3 does just one thing, plays CDs, which it does exceptionally well. Further, Bryston offers the BCD-3 at an eminently reasonable price.

First, the new Bryston is a significant upgrade to the BCD-1. Second, it’s a superb CD player, full stop. Like the BCD-1, it gets the music right; but it also provides greater resolution, dynamics, spatial precision, and openness.

My next discovery was just how good the BCD-3 sounds, and how much of an improvement it represents over even excellent last-generation CD players.

The BCD-3’s single-minded design and functionality delivers CD performance that doesn’t come along every day... If I were choosing a CD player that wouldn’t break the bank but was unflinching in its musical and sonic generosity, the BCD-3 would be at the top of my list.
