Bryston BP-1.5 Phono Preamplifier



My overall impression of the Bryston BP-1.5 is that it is very neutral and very clean. There is no particular range of frequencies, such as the lows, mids, or highs, that are in your face. It is extremely smooth and easy to listen to. It is also quiet. I could not detect hiss or hum (a phono preamp after all is dealing with amplification of very small voltages, and if it is not laid out properly, hiss and/or hum will work its way into the sound).

It's a terrific product and well worth the price, especially if you already have a Bryston component with the MPS-2 power supply.
