Analog preamplifier with RCA and balanced XLR inputs and outputs, fully balanced design from input-to-output, and oversized toroidal power transformer
The Bryston BP-19 leverages years of R&D and many design innovations that were achieved during the development of the multi-award-winning BR-20 preamplifier. The BP-19 reproduces music effortlessly, constructed using only the finest hand-selected premium components including an oversized toroidal power transformer. The optimized discrete operational amplifier delivers a staggeringly low THD+N measurement at or below 0.0006%. The signal path features a fully balanced design from input-to-output, using an array of very tightly matched components and a compact circuit architecture, achieving the lowest possible noise and superior common mode rejection. For the devoted music enthusiast, these innovations, combined with the legendary hand-built excellence from Bryston, translate to more lifelike performances, enhanced detail, and a greater sense of dimensionality and dynamics from all recordings.
Inputs and Outputs
The input array includes two pairs of balanced XLR input jacks and four pairs of RCA input connectors. There are two pairs of RCA (phono) outputs (one pair fixed, one pair variable), and two pair of balanced XLR outputs (one pair fixed, one pair variable).
Exceptional Phono Stage for Vinyl Playback
For the first time ever, Bryston is offering the legendary BP-2 moving magnet (MM) phono stage circuit as an onboard option for the BP-19 preamp. As Carlo Lo Raso noted in his review on Secrets of Home Theater, ?The tonal balance was exceedingly neutral and revealing with just enough warmth tossed into the presentation to make any sort of vocal performance downright shine. Background noise was completely nonexistent with the BP-2...? The BP-2 is highly accurate, offers extremely low noise, miniscule distortion, and provides headroom margins sufficient to prevent overload from any known phono source. Bryston also offers specially designed, custom-made outboard step-up transformers to accommodate low output Moving Coil (MC) cartridge designs.
Many features of the BP-19 can be easily controlled using included infrared remote. Each of the six analog inputs have corresponding buttons on the remote as well as on the front panel of the preamp. HEX codes are also available for use with a universal style remote control. The BP-19 preamplifier can be controlled remotely using RS232 or IP when connected to a smart home ecosystem via the RS232 or Ethernet ports on the rear panel. The BP-19 can also be remotely turned on or placed into standby, and trigger outputs can be used to power on/off other connected equipment, such as a power amplifier.
The BP-19 is available in five standard faceplate finishes, in 17 or 19-inch widths. 19-inch rack mount for professional applications are also available. Bryston also offers personalized custom faceplate colors for the BP-19 and other electronics such as amplifiers, preamplifiers, CD players, digital players, phono stages, and DAC?s. Choose from the standard colors or create a bespoke finish to suit any entertainment space or décor.
