Yes BDP-2 is a superior streamer especially with the new upgraded audio card. It is a powerful DLNA renderer that could playback transcoded wav/24 from minim server (transcoded wav via minim server sound better than flac as original source). BDP-2 comes with 2 x giga network lan, no problem playing 192/24 transcoded wav from flac.

Pros... the best audio I have heard so far.. huge sound stage and clear details.


FWIW, I have a Bryston BDP-1 (original version w/ sound ESI Juli@ sound card) and I agree with all of the above. The sound is stunning running BNC S/PDIF out into my Rega DAC.

Oh, and I also have no problems playing back transcoded WAV 192/24 via MinimStreamer over a Wi-Fi bridge into a 100 Mbps connection (which is all the BDP-1 supports).

Bryston uses the re-booted GMediaStreamer open source for UPnP playback, which flawlessly handles gapless playback.

But, to be hones, I have disabled this component in my player and exclusively use MPD and a locally USB-attached SSD drive with my library. It just sounds better ... way better. As always, YMMV.

Oh... may I know what file format are you playing back from the USB-attached SSD drive? Is it flac? I have compared between MPD reading flac 16bit from NAS and DLNA renderer reading trancoded wav 24bit from the same flac 16bit file via minim server. The trancoded wav 24bit seems to sound better than the flac original file read from MPD.

Can MPD server add the minim server transcoded wav 24bit into its library? Just curious on your configuration that achieve sounds that is way better via MPD.
