What else to know about the BP-16?The new Bryston BP-16 is based on our world famous B-100 SST integrated amplifier. In fact the BP-16 is the identical preamplifier section from the B-100. Technical specifications are identical to the B-100 amplifier section (see pg 8). This provides a very cost effective solution for us to manufacture a full-featured versatile preamplifier for our customers. The BP-16 is a state of the art analog stereo preamplifier which utilizes ‘software’ control. The software allows us to provide many more features and functions while still adhering to traditional fully discrete analog circuits throughout the preamplifier. An example of how innovative this new BP-16 is at maintaining the superiority of discrete analog class A circuits while taking advantage of the ‘software control’ is in our new digitally controlled volume. The digitally controlled volume utilizes a resistance network on a chip. This technology, in reference to the signal path, is still implemented in the analog mode. It offers many advantages, for instance perfect channel balance, a simple integrated balance adjustment without additional parts, practically zero adjustment noises, first class behavior in reference to noise and distortion, as well as adjustment via software.
