BP-2 Phono Preamplifier
Bryston’s new BP-2 phono preamplifier applies our extraordinary low-distortion, wide bandwidth amplification to your record collection. Available in either MM (moving magnet) only or MM/MC (adds moving coil), the BP-2 is a perfect match for most available cartridges today. Both versions include switchable capacitive loading for use with moving magnet cartridges.
The MM/MC version adds a pair of ultra low distortion, wide bandwidth step-up transformers (the same ones used in our TF-2) to add compatibility with low output moving coil carts. The transformers can be factory wound for an additional 20dB or 31dB of gain.
Power the BP-2 from your existing Bryston MPS-2 DC power supply or from the new PS-3 DC power supply.
Inputs: 2x RCA, 1x Turntable Ground
Outputs: 2x RCA
Good things come in small packages
A new 5.7 inch wide form factor originally developed for specialty digital components is a perfect fit for Bryston’s new phono electronics.
Several challenges make developing a high resolution phono playback chain unique.
In particular, the extremely low voltages from a cartridge are o en less than 1 millivolt! Such small signals are susceptible to noise from other nearby electronics, distortions in the power line, and even other electronics in the same box.
Bryston has engineered our new phono playback system to mitigate these challenges. Each function can be fully contained in a separate chassis.
An important side benefit is that rather than spending money for features you may not need or that may already exist in other equipment you already own, you may simply buy the components you need.
Every amplification circuit is built on a power supply. Bryston’s new PS-3 Power Supply transforms your AC line voltage into an ultra-stable and linear DC voltage used by your gain stage.
Bryston’s new BP2 Phono Preamplifiers
BP2 are powered by a Bryston DC power supply such as the PS-3 or MPS-2 and provide the voltage gain your turntable needs to interface with the rest of your stereo equipment. Three BP2 models are available.
Step up transformers are the best way to provide the initial gain needed for low and medium output moving coil cartridges. Having no active components themselves, they are essentially noiseless. Bryston’s TF2-20 and TF2-30 step up transformers provide either 20dB or 30dB of gain respectively so you can use a low to medium output moving coil cartridge with your choice of active gain stage.
Bryston’s BP2 Phono Preamplifiers are full class-A gain stages plus extremely accurate RIAA equalization to play your records with superb accuracy. The BP2- MM Moving Magnet Phono Preamplifier utilizes Bryston’s wide bandwidth and low
distortion active gain stage for high output MC and MM cartridges. Four capacitance settings are provided for loading MM cartridges. The BP2-MC Moving Coil Phono Preamplifiers combine the active gain stage of the BP2-MM with an ultra low distortion step up transformer. The transformer can be switched in and out for maximum cartridge compatibility.
Bryston Ltd. has been designing and manufacturing state of the art specialty electronics to both the consumer and professional audio marketplaces for over 35 years.
Bryston has a major commitment in producing the most accurate and reliable product available by maintaining an extensive research and development division which is constantly looking for ways to improve the performance, value, and reliability of our products.
Bryston engineers are never constrained by design costs for functionality. On the contrary, Bryston challenges their engineers to create the finest products they can; to source and use the best components; to move Bryston equipment ever-closer to perfection, while maximizing performance and reliability.
Following in the fine tradition of artisan craftsmanship worldwide, every audio component is handcrafted by people who take tremendous pride in building the very best. Each component is hand selected and installed, every wire is cut and bent by hand, and every connection is hand soldered.
In the consumer market Bryston manufactures state of the art audio electronics intended to provide the owner with the most musically accurate and reliable performance available. In the professional market Bryston offers amplifiers for recording studios, radio and television broadcast facilities, and sound reinforcement applications such as stadiums and arenas, etc.
Each of Bryston’s fully assembled products is extensively tested before shipment. During 100 hours of continuous testing, Bryston amplifiers are monitored through a range of input cycles and thermal stress levels to duplicate a broad spectrum of operational loads. If any failures occur, Bryston will catch them during the manufacturing process, before you begin using the product.
Bryston’s dedication to creating the most reliable products is clearly evident in their 20 year analog and 5 year digital warranty.
Bryston products allow you to enjoy a generation of sound, music, and incredible performance. Bryston is based in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada, just northeast of Toronto, and is sold through over 150 dealers in North America and 60 countries worldwide.
For over 30 years, Bryston has had a continuing commitment to design and manufacture the most accurate and reliable audio electronics.
The performance, value, and reliability of our amplifiers, and our unrivaled warranty, have brought us recognition in the world of pro audio, as well as with reviewers and home users.
But there is no product that cannot be made better. To this end, we maintain an extensive research and development program, constantly investigating techniques, technologies, and devices that promise improvements to all aspects of our amplifiers.
The Bryston SST2 C–Series is the direct result of this on-going quest, and represents a significant step forward in the art and science of audio amplification.
