Bryston BP17 Preamplifier

BP17 is a state-of-the-art analog/digital stereo preamplifier derived from the preamp portion of the B-135 integrated amplifier. Basing a component preamplifier design on existing architecture enables Bryston to deliver unusually high performance and legendary build quality at an affordable price.

The BP17 will be available in December, 2012 with an MSRP of $3550.

The Bryston BP17 can be ordered in four configurations—in its standard form, with an optional moving magnet phono stage, with a high resolution internal DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) or fully loaded with both the DAC and phono stage. The BP17 includes provisions for 6 stereo RCA inputs (4 with DAC option), 1 stereo RCA output, 1 stereo tape loop and a headphone output. The Bryston BR2 remote, made from a machined aluminum block, is available as an option.
