Japanese company that has manufacturing in both its home country and in South Korea, also known as simply BP. The South Korean arm manufactures high end integrated amplifiers, isolation platforms and phonographic pre-amplifiers and those are the products you will usually see distributed in the west, but in addition the Japanese mother company manufactures DAC's, pre & power amplifiers, microphones and pre-amplifier modules that DIY enthusiasts can use in their builds.
