Bryston bakes Pi

I found this interesting:

http://www.bryston.com/products/digital_audio/BDP-Pi.html

Looks like basically the same transport I have - Rapberry Pi and hifiberry digi+. There's looks a lot nicer though!

Far as I can tell its running music player daemon. I'd love to know the base os and any tweaks they did.

the price is quite high for what looks to be cosmetics, mostly?

Found a couple pictures of this thing. Now I'm even more curious. Looks like the hifiberry board is made just for Bryston.  The hifiberry folks had a blog post from March 2016 announcing its debut.

Tommy: Sadly this one is a bit out of my price range.

I was running a BDP-Pi for awhile a year or so ago.  I liked it for its size and lack of too many buttons.  My fond recollection is that the sound quality was better than that of my BDP-1.  Alas, the bee in my bonnet recently has been DSD and the BDP-Pi only did PCM (maybe there is newer firmware).

My experience with the two Bryston units (and later a Sonore microRendu) convinced me that getting the file rendering function away from a conventional desktop or laptop computer does flipping wonders for sound quality and there are several ways to skin that cat.  No (conventional) computers in my playback chain!
