    Bryston Goes Class D

    I saw a Facebook post from Bryston sharing a letter where a studio used their new to come Class D amp and was pleased with the performance. The Bryston admin noted the info was not on the website yet. It will be a 2, 4 or 6 channel amp, not sure if same chassis just adding modules or what. We will have to keep our eyes open unless Mike knows something. I suspect more info soon since they created a post about it.

    I did a quick search just to see if anything showed up, it looks like Bryston has done Class D before back in 2008 with the D250z. I didn't read about that since old news and obviously not still available. However, the D250z was an 8 channel amp rated at 250 into 8 ohms. Nothing came up for a new entry to the market.

    Re: Bryston Goes Class D

    I hope they bring back the 28SST2 voicing in a new model one day. Awesome amps. They’re my amps for “best used system under $20K”. Not sure Class D makes sense for Bryston.

    The more consumers move from tube amps to class D (I know Bryston doesn't make tube amps), the more NOS tubes that leaves available for me.

    Re: Bryston Goes Class D

    This post was recent I just saw it yesterday. If you have FB you can check out the Bryston page, tell me what you think. I'll check again as well sometimes FB's algorithms are strange.

    Re: Bryston Goes Class D

    James Tanner openly discussed this on another site.

    He says they are not giving up on Class AB amps.

    Sounds to me that this amp would work great for multi channel systems, and also for use with the Bryston crossover system to their passive speakers using an amp per driver. (3+ amp channels needed per speaker)
