I A/B'd the Rega Saturn and Bryston BCD-1 and found the Bryston to have significantly more articulate and dynamic bass in an overall more involving player. I am a long time Rega loyalist having had the original Planet, Planet 2000 and Jupiter 2000. Loved them all. But, after purchasing and living with the BCD-1 I realize just how much I'd been missing in imaging specificity, dynamics and bass with the Regas. The BCD-1 preserves the toe-tapping rythmic pacing of the Regas and midrange presence while adding so much more in live-sound presence.
