Bryston BP-19 preamplifier launches in UK

PMC Distribution UK is introducing the Bryston BP-19 analogue preamplifier. Leveraging years of R&D and many design innovations achieved during the development of the multi-award-winning BR-20 preamplifier, the BP-19 brings the renowned Bryston BR-20 audio quality to the UK audiophile customer.

Meticulously handcrafted in Canada, the BP-19 preamplifier reproduces music effortlessly thanks to the finest hand-selected premium components, an oversized toroidal power transformer. Its 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 pairs of balanced XLR outputs (one pair fixed, one pair variable) for optimum connectivity.

The optimised 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. The BP-19 also employs an advanced volume attenuator, ensuring long-lasting, quiet, linear performance. 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.

For the first time, Bryston is offering the legendary BP-2 moving magnet (MM) phono stage circuit as an onboard option for the BP-19 preamp. 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 step-up transformers to accommodate low output Moving Coil (MC) cartridge designs.

Each of the six analogue inputs can be controlled via the supplied remote, front panel or remotely using RS232 or IP when connected to a smart home ecosystem. HEX codes are available for use with a universal style remote control.

The BP-19 is available with 17” faceplates in Silver or Black or 19” to order.

Pricing Bryston BP-19 preamplifier £5,395, BP-19 with built in MM phono stage £6,395, BP-19 with built in MM and MC £7,395. The BP-19 is supplied with Bryston’s legendary 20-year warranty and will be available in the UK in December 2023.
