Rear USB ports

Discuss Bryston's discontinued BDP-1 Digital Music Player

I prefer the AES/EBU, but it's practically a tossup with the BDA-2. I think it depends heavily on the interconnect and DAC used in the system.

Hi

Thanks for the tip. It's working fine, no fails. Probably not drawing more than 500mA even with the fastest music.

Question: What's your view on USB cables between the pocket drive and BDP-1? I use the short stock cable, about 30cm. I don't subscribe to buying uber-expensive USB cables like some do. For me, the critical digital circuitry are inside the components, not in the USB cable itself.

Cheers,
M

Has anyone used a USB power supply such as the Aqvox (Germany)? It claims to improve SQ.

Not sure if it's the same thing, but I'm going to experiment by plugging in a powered USB hub (Macally) this weekend, and attaching 2 G-drives and 2 thumbdrives (500GB each G-drive, 64GB/thumbdrive) to the hub. Will see if BDP-1 will play smoothly with the hub plugged into it. It should, if forum posts are to be believed. I think as long as the USB cables attaching the drives to the hub are good quality, the SQ shouldn't be affected detrimentally with a powered hub. I am not a believer in high-end USB cabling, at least for the BDP-1.

Success!! I plugged in a Startech powered 6-port USB hub to one rear jack on BDP-1. Easily recognizes and reads 4 drives from the powered hub! I am sooooo happy now. Before, I could not get it to read two 500-GB G-drives from the rear jacks, usually a power issue. Now, I have the two drives plus two 64-GB thumbies plugged into the hub. No power issues whatsoever. And the sound is fabulous with Furutech Formulaa-2 USB cables (well-shielded) feeding the hub and the two 500-GB drives.

I'm not one to go ga-ga about USB cables, but I'm getting very satisfactory results with Furutech's Formula-2 cable. Connects my BDP-1 to 500-GB pocket G-drives on rear USB ports. Not expensive, either. Specs are here for anyone interested. YMMV, but compared to the thinner black stock USB cable that comes with the G-drives, this Furutech is a marked improvement for smoothness across the Freq spectrum. Don't know how to explain it; they're just packets of 0's and 1's..... :?

I use the AES/EBU in my system.
