Bryston launches BP-19 balanced preamp

Bryston has introduced the new Bryston BP-19 preamplifier , born from years of research and development and design innovations that have been developed for the BR-20 preamplifier.

The Bryston BP-19 preamplifier is handcrafted in Canada and comes with a 20 year manufacturer’s warranty. The novelty is equipped with a powerful toroidal power transformer and carefully selected premium components, which allows to achieve a low THD value, which does not exceed 0.0006%.

The preamp has a fully balanced architecture from input to output and is equipped with an advanced volume control. The switching arsenal includes two pairs of balanced analog inputs on XLR connectors and four pairs of RCA input connectors. For connection to a power amplifier or active speakers, two pairs of unbalanced RCA outputs and two pairs of balanced XLR outputs are provided, moreover, in each version, one pair is linear and one is adjustable.

With the BP-19, for the first time, Bryston offers the BP-2 Moving Magnet (MM) phono stage as a built-in option. Bryston also offers custom made step up transformers for moving coil (MC) cartridges as an option.

Many functions of the Bryston BP-19 preamplifier can be controlled using the included infrared remote control. Each of the six analog inputs has corresponding buttons on the remote control as well as on the front panel of the preamp. Hexadecimal codes are also available for use with the universal remote control. The BP-19 can be controlled remotely via RS232 or IP when connected to the smart home ecosystem via the RS232 or Ethernet ports on the rear panel. The BP-19 can also be remotely turned on or put into standby, and the trigger outputs can be used to turn on/off other connected equipment such as a power amp.
