Bryston BCD-1 Player Owners

For all Bryston BCD-1 CD player owners, how satisifed are you with your unit?

Would you recommend it or have you "upgraded" to some other CD player?
Very natural & musical player
It gets out of the way to express what's on the disc.
Presentation is never overstated
All types of music sound accurate
Timber,timing & rhythm
I'm a musician
I had Bryston B60 integrated but recently purchased Musical Fidelity M6i for more power.
My speakers PSB Synchrony II are demanding & bass authority was lacking.
Howerver B60 & BCD-1 is a good combination.
I was very satisfied with my Bryston until I recently upgraded my amp and speakers. It now sounds like the week link and I'm exploring which may be the more effective upgrade path, i.e. a better one box player or adding a DAC. Would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks, Jayh31
It would be good to try and understand what about the BCD-1 makes you feel it no longer matches your system?

If you still like the sound of the Bryston you have the option of acquiring a used BDA-1 which has dual Crystal dac chips in it over the single chip in the BCD-1. When I had a BDA-1 I thought it sounded better than my friend's BCD-1.

An alternate choice would be the recently released BDA-2 dac from Bryston. More functions and most importantly they have moved from the Crystal dac chips to AKM 32 bit chips so that "should" change the sound somewhat and may get you closer to the presentation you are looking for. Upside to the BDA-2 is it should drive the prices down on used BDA-1 units as is often the case when new models come out - again this will depend on whether or not you want to still use a Bryston digital product...
