The BDA-3.14 includes built-in music player, onboard digital volume control and updated user interface, creating a world class digital entertainment hub from Bryston with unparalleled performance.  (MSRP $4,195)

The BDA-3.14 offers streaming capability via a built-in music player that delivers access to network-connected storage and USB drives as well as streaming services such as Qobuz, Tidal, Roon and Internet radio. Digital connectivity between the internal music player and the DAC is managed using the I2S protocol, a premium interface standard used for connecting digital audio devices together that preserves audio and clock data with virtually zero error. The BDA-3.14 also features a digital volume control, enabling users to drive an amplifier directly. An updated version of Bryston’s Manic Moose user interface for phones, tablets and computers provides users with intuitive control over all functionality.

Bryston DAC Technology

The multi-award-winning BDA-3 DAC can decode up to 384 kHz/32-bit PCM music and up to DSDx4 natively. Each format is processed in its native resolution, preserving absolute bit-perfect signals all the way to the analog outputs. Additionally, Bryston’s ultra-precise re-clocking circuit reduces jitter to nearly unmeasurable levels. Bryston’s proprietary analog section is completely free of integrated circuits (ICs) that limit the bandwidth and dynamic range of so many competitive DACs. For maximum flexibility, the BDA-3 has an astonishing ten discrete inputs including four 2-channel HDMI, asynchronous USB, AES/EBU, TOSLINK, and digital coax. It also includes Bryston’s network module, which facilitates control via TCP/IP and RS-232—a must for integration with modern smart home platforms.

JVC New 8K e-Shift D-ILA Projector

If you ask me to choose what would be the most exciting new products launched in CEDIA 2018, I would definitely say the JVC first 8K e-Shift projector.  A new line-up of JVC D-ILA projects are called DLA-RS3000, RS2000 and RS1000, respectively.  The DLA-RS3000, being the top model of the line features three 0.69″ 4K D-ILA (4096×2160) devices with Auto Tone Mapping and wide colour gamut (100% DCI).  The all-glass 100mm dia. lens are borrowed from their flagship Blu-Escent Laser Light model, DLA-RS4500.  In fact, not many people know that the quality of the lens plays a major role in reproducing the purest image.  Now JVC add-on 8K e-shift function to this projector further makes the DLA-RS3000 the most coveting product of the show.   dlars3000_300

Audience Cables and Power Conditioner

The first time I heard about Audience goes back in time when I was young and ignorant and while I am still searching the right cables for my sound system in order to make it sound right, in other words tuning the sound of my gears. That was the date that I bought the second hand cables of the very reputable brands from an audiophile in Hong Kong.  I asked him why he wanted to sell this cable and he replied that he was going to change all his cables into “Audience” cables!  I didn’t understand because I was ignorant at that time.

Now I understand when I plugged Audience’s power cables into my system and all of the sudden the music came naturally.  This is something that I’ve never experienced before with other high-end audio cables.   No doubt that some so-called “higher” end cables did something positive to my system (ie. smoother high frequency, adding warmth and sweetness to the sound in a good way, tightening bass, etc).  Audience’s cables are different.  It is pure music!  In technical terms, naturalness, coherence, tonal balance and organic may be the words to describe. I cannot imagine there is any matching problem for Audience’s cables with any other electronics.   I would not reserve to recommend Audience to everybody even though you are not in the market of cables.  Don’t just read reviews.  Try listening them by your ears…………… 🙂

JBL Heritage

JBL sound: A heritage of excellence JBL loudspeakers have been the choice of music and movie professionals for more than 70 years. If I want to describe JBL sound, they are dynamic (really dynamic!), lively, effortless and coherent.  When you listen to them, you will soon forget all the hi-fi terms but enjoy “be in the venue” of a live music concert.

In fact, they are behind the screens of more than 50 percent of all movie theaters and hang in concert venues everywhere. Many of your favorite songs and movie soundtracks were mixed or mastered on JBL studio monitors. JBL home systems use technologies, materials and manufacturing techniques that JBL developed for professional speakers.  If you want to build a studio grade home theatre, simply put JBL Synthesis speakers behind your screen, get one of our specialist to calibrate them and you are set to go!
