Welcome
Thank you for your purchase of a Bryston BOT-1
Bryston Optical Transport. By adding an optical disc
drive to your BDP digital music player, you can now
rip and play CDs with your BDP without having to
use a computer. You can leverage the world-class
digital playback engine in your BDP to play CDs
back at equivalent quality to a ripped disc. You can
also rip CDs with a single button press to any of
the attached drives. Expanded features are easily
accessed through our comprehensive graphical
user interface useable on any modern web enabled
device. As with all Bryston equipment, we welcome
your questions, comments, and criticsm. Thank you
for owning Bryston.
Features
Bryston BOT-1 include the following:
• DC power supply included. Or power from
optional BPS-3 multi-device power supply.
• Connect to BDP with included USB cable (Type
A to Type Mini-B)
• Slot loading optical drive.
• Fully managed through Manic Moose web-based
graphical user interface.
• Available in Black or Silver. Cosmetically
matches other Bryston C-Series components.
Shipping Box and Packing Material
Please keep the original shipping box and all
packing material. This will ensure the BOT-1 is
protected in future transport. In the unlikely event
you have a problem and must return it for service,
you must use the proper packing material. Ship
the BOT-1 only in the original packing material,
as the unit is not insurable by carriers otherwise.
Replacement packing materials, consisting of
a shipping carton with plastic foam inserts, is
available from Bryston for a small fee.
Installation and Usage
Placement
The BOT-1 is designed to occupy 1/3 the width of a
17” wide C-Series component. Therefore, the BOT1 is commonly placed on top of the BDP or other
Bryston C-Series component. However, placement
is not critical, and the BOT-1 can be placed beside
the BDP or elsewhere in the equipment rack. Do
not orient the BOT-1 in any position where it is
not resting on the 4 attached plastic feet since
unconventional orientation may increase the risk of
a disc jamming inside the transport.

Connecting to A/C Power
Power is supplied to the BOT-1 using the included
DC power adapter which connects to the BOT-1 with
mating D-Sub connectors. Firmly connect the power
adapter to the BOT-1 and secure the thumb screws
before plugging the unit into the wall.
Connecting to BDP
Connect your BOT-1 to any available USB port
on your BDP using the USB cable provided. Once
connected, the Manic Moose inferface will show
“Eject” in the upper left portion of the transport
control area.
initiate CD ripping from the CD Backup application
or from the device front panel.
Configuring CD Backup
By default, CD Backup will copy CDs to the first
storage device found by the BDP. You can change
the storage location of ripped CDs by opening the
settings pane on the left side of the page. Open the
settings pane by clicking .
•
Inserting and Ejecting CDs
To insert a disc, simply push it into the slot label
side up until the BOT-1 motor grabs the disc and
pulls it into the mechanism. Never force a disc into
the drive!
To eject a disc, press the STOP button on the front
panel of your BDP or EJECT from the Manic Moose
web user interface.
•
•
Ripping CDs
Access the CD ripping application through the web
interface of your BDP. From a web-browser on a
compatible device, open the web page for your
BDP. This may be http://bryston-bdp-[1 or 2].local
or simply the numerical IP address assigned to
your player. Click “Applications” then CD Backup.
Configure the CD Backup application as you wish
(or accept the default configuration). You can

File Type: Choose between FLAC, WAV and MP3.
FLAC is preferred since it features lossless sound
quality and full support for metadata. WAV is
also lossless but doesn’t support embedded
metadata. MP3 has the widest compatibility
with other playback hardware but damages
sound quality in exchange for minimal file size.
Destination: Choose either a local or network
connected drive and sub folder in which CD rips
will be stored.
Naming: Within the chosen destination, this
describes how folders and files will be placed
and named according to metadata. Either
accept the default or create your own by using a
combination of metadata tags and your own
entered text. As an example, the scheme above
would result in Tom Petty/Wildflowers/02-You
Dont Know How it Feels.flac
VA Naming: Edit settings specific to storage
of compilation albums. Motion picture
soundtracks and other “Various Artists” albums
can be stored in a compilations folder and
include different criteria in their naming scheme
than traditional single artist albums.
BOT-1 Bryston Optical Transport
Entering Metadata
When a CD is inserted, the BDP attempts to retrieve
pertinent information about the disc from the
internet. Most discs are accurately recognized, but
in the case of ambiguous choices, you can choose
from among other close matches using the META
dropdown menu. You can also manually override
any field with a white text box and the fields in the
Artist and Title columns in the track listing beneath.
Cover Art
Along with text metadata, the BDP also attempts to
retrieve cover art to display in Artist View and during
playback. To see the cover for the current disc,
click the button. The cover art pane expands.
The top album cover is the one currently chosen
to be included in the folder with the CD rip. If this is
incorrect, click any image below to choose between
other close matches. You may also enter the URL
of an image in the white text entry box and press
Download.
automatically created. Once ripping is complete, the
disc will automatically eject, and your library will be
updated to include the new files.
Once you have configured the CD Backup
application, successive CD rips may not need to
involve the web user interface unless you feel
compelled to verify metadata and album artwork.
Once you insert the CD, the BDP will attempt to
recognize the disc. The front panel will read “Audio
CD Ready!”. Press the Pause button to initiate CD
ripping. The disc will eject when done.
Executing the Backup
Click BACKUP to initiate the CD ripping process. The
status column will indicate progress. If the folders
do not exist on your destination drive, they will be

Playing CDs Directly
By utilizing the digital audio playback engine
developed for the BDP digital players, listeners no
longer need a separate dedicated CD player to play
discs without ripping them first. The BDP buffers a
few seconds of audio into its memory just like when
it reads a file from storage. Therefore, there is no
audio quality difference between the CD playback
and the ripped file.
For those who use 3rd party control applications
on Android, iOS, and other platforms, a playlist is
automatically generated titled Audio CD when a CD
is inserted in the BOT-1. To play a CD using a 3rd
party application, click or tap the Audio CD playlist.
In 3rd party
apps, Audio CDs
are listed in the
Playlists section
of the library.
Audio CD only
appears when
one is inserted
into the BOT-1.
MPoD is shown
at left.
There are two ways to initiate playback. Insert your
CD in the BOT-1. The BDP will read the disc’s table
of contents and, if connected to the internet, will
attempt to identify the CD metadata and album art.
After a few seconds, the front panel of the BDP will
read “Audio CD Ready!”
CD Playback Method 1
Once you see the Audio CD Ready! message, simply
press the Play button on the front panel. The CD will
begin playing shortly thereafter.
CD Playback Method 2
The Manic Moose user interface creates two
references to the Audio CD. One is a listing at the top
of Default View. Simply click the text describing the
CD or the + beside it to add it to the playlist. Press
Play ► in the transport controls area to initiate
playback.

Burning a Playlist
When a playlist is generated from music stored on
local or network attached drives and is less than 80
minutes in duration, it can be archived to a CD for
playback on traditional CD players.
1. Create a playlist less than 80 minutes in
duration comprised of only 44.1 kHz / 16 bit
PCM audio.
2. Insert a blank CD-R into the BOT-1
3. Click or Tap on BURN
As the BDP prepares the tracks for burning, they
will be highlighted in purple indicating progress.
Once they are all highlighted, burning commences.
Once the disc is done, it will automatically eject. Any
errors will be reported on the Dashboard.
