Oooooops, it actually 96K my fault.
It actually only sounds fair.....I imagine not much an improvement over a regular CD.

Hey, another BDP-1 owner - awesome piece of kit! Hopefully, Chris will get the bugs worked out of the new version of the firmware soon - it's pretty cool.

I love it. In fact I have a deposit on a BDP-2......I'll get it in the fall. I'll put BDP-1 in my home theater. Waiting to see if they have DSD by then or if Chris has the bugs worked out of Manic Moose.

Have you downloaded the new firmware? I have, no problems.

Re: What's playing right now ? (Include format)

I tried the Manic Moose beta a couple of times. I think it's going to be awesome when it works, but it rendered my BDP-1 useless the first time and very quirky the second. It was simple enough to go back to Loony Loon, which works flawlessly.

Prior to buying the BDP-1, I picked up a Marantz NA7004. The Marantz player couldn't transition between files without inserting a three second break. That was a deal breaker. The tech support guy at Marantz stated that it wasn't a firmware issue, meaning that it's a design shortcoming. Needless to say, it went back. My little Sonos can do it, so why shouldn't a higher end player? Oh well, Bryston added NAS support to the BDP's bag of tricks, so I jumped on one. I love mine too. I don't have Bryston's DAC; I'm using mine with an Audio Research DAC7 (which is no slouch).

The funny thing about my holding out for NAS support is that I quickly shifted to attached USB drives after buying the BDP-1. I guess Bryston had the right idea all along.

The Audio Research is a great DAC. I went from a Theta to Bryston BDA-1 and next BDA-2. There are so many great DAC's out there. Like anyone in this hobby your always wondering what's better.

Interesting about the Marantz. Wonder how the Sony is fairing.

I have a question, do you think your Flac files sound better than the same CD played through your DAC?
