MH, I don't suppose you've heard the Auralic Vega? Upgrading DAC soon, and the Bryston is very high on the shortlist right now with the Vega and a couple of others. If you (or anyone) else has ears-on experience with both I'd love to hear of it. It looks to me like I'd be paying a premium for some features I won't use (DXD/DSD), and while I like the reassurance of some more future proofing, if the sound improvement simply isn't there I'd rather pocket the price difference to possibly put toward a Chord Hugo for portable use.
Sorry I haven't heard the Vega, but I can say that the BDA-2 seriously brings it!
