So after hearing this wonderful DAC back in June, it's been on my mind all summer. Well today, I finally got around to putting in an order for one. Should have it in 1-2 weeks.
I really liked the BDA-1, but in the end, it never motivated me enough to pick one up. The USB implementation on that DAC was less than stellar as well. Great thing the folks at Bryston stepped up their game considerably with this new DAC.
My impressions from my first listening session (in my home) with my GS-X MKII + HD800s AND my (now sold) KGSS + SR-009s was this DAC was very good at showing every last detail in the recording, but still very dynamic and musical. My DAC-2 came off as dry and more laid back in comparison.
So more to come (along with photos) once it arrives.
UPDATE: Here is a quick link to my review of the Bryston BDA-2:
