    SUBJECT: Bryston Mini A Speaker – Dealer Comments

    September, 2018

    LOGO AA.jpeg

    Bryston Mini As are back in stock and in a new(ish) finish - Espresso Walnut. I have to say this loudspeaker is one of the best values in our store.

    It seems like a good time to quote myself from way back in November of 2015.

    "Every once in a while a product comes along that completely defies expectation. The Bryston Mini A is that product! ...

    This modestly sized, three-way stand mount loudspeaker is remarkable in its ability to disappear.

    The bass weight is fantastic considering the low end duties are left to a 6 1/2″ woofer. Coherence is another strong suit; close your eyes and you’d swear you were in front of a pair of Magnepans.
    They are that good.

    At $1500.00/pair, they may be over looked by some and that would be a big mistake."

    SUBJECT: Bryston Model A1 Loudspeaker – Customer Feedback

    September, 2018

    ‘Hi James

    I just purchased a pair of Bryston Model A1 loudspeakers.


    After only 2 listening sessions … all I can say is WOW!


    These babies are the real deal. Effortless power. Will write more once they get settled into my room and I finish tweaking placement, etc. ... but super happy so far!

    Back to an all-Bryston system once again - from source to speakers!!

    Love it

    SUBJECT: First, the so called Bryston MINI TC-1 Center speaker is a JOKE!!

    October 2018

    First, the so called MINI TC-1 is a JOKE!! This speaker is a far cry from being remotely a MINI anything!

    The speaker is beyond gorgeous and for a center channel it fills any space, including my fireplace hearth quite nicely!

    I've been a little boy at Christmas time, waiting on it to arrive, due to it being the real wood Rosewood and a custom order.

    To say a center channel is a Mini that weighs in at 71lbs is a laughable!

    It is amazing listening to them now, (Mini-Ts and the Mini TC-1) simply stunned on what music sounds like, or better yet, what music I’ve been missing by not having it.

    As time goes by they will only get better!! The stage is front and center, it is as if I were at each venue in person. Can't wait till I can crank it p and truly feel the envelope of the sound and performances.

    Never in my life (I'm 55) did I think that I would be able to own or afford world class speakers.

    Bryston has stunned and shocked me on how these speakers (all 3) sound together and it just keeps getting better.

    Forgive my naivety and childish enthusiasm but I am just entering this amazing sound environment! I'm giddy like a little school kid!!

    Now off to musical bliss!

    SUBJECT: Dealer Feedback – Brian Gammon – Industry Veteran

    November 2018

    James;

    I’ve been meaning to comment for the longest time regarding my Bryston system so far. As you know, over the past four years I’ve slowly and progressively updated my audio system using predominantly Bryston components. This was prompted by a move to a different house, giving me a larger space in which to integrate music listening & theater in one larger room.

    The room is 25’ x 18’ with a 10’ ceiling. Although not how I would have designed the build-out from raw space, the room has reasonable attributes, including only very nominal low frequency nodal issues, in part as it’s built over a full crawl space, not a concrete floor. I’ve located absorption panels in key locations in the front two-thirds of the room, including the area of the ceiling between the speakers and the primary listening seats.

    My Bryston “experiment” started with an SP3 (now updated to include a recent gen HDMI board), a pair of Model T Signatures, and a pair of 7B’s (now 7B3’s). A bit later the BDA-3 DAC and the BLP-1 turntable joined the party. Every part of the Bryston chain has brought its’ own overall improvements, but there is one “signature” characteristic that I feel defines the Bryston system experience, which I’ll get to in a moment.

    I spend more time with music than movies (or concerts on disc). Faithful rendering of good recordings, whether recreating live performances or studio sessions, is my priority. (You guys know my background; I’ve been privileged to be part of an industry that I love for many years.)

    Each Bryston component that I’ve added, taken on individual merit, is great.

    • I’ve heard the 7B’s outstrip well regarded, legacy amps.

    • The turntable is everything I hoped it would be and more without spending the price of a car.

    • The SP3 in full Bypass mode allows the overall system to reveal each new improvement.

    • The Model T Signature speakers are credibly neutral, extended in frequency response, controlled without sounding overly analytical, and resolve detail in gobs for a monitor designed around dynamic drivers. (Not intended to suggest dynamic-driver speaker designs need take a back seat to any other designs, only that it takes careful attention in design and component selection to compete with the best planar designs in the critical midrange.) Interestingly, the Model T’s respond well and communicate clear differences in musical presentation with changes in room placement, angle relative to the listener, and so on.

    • The BDA-3 DAC is extremely flexible and sounds great overall, and particularly in the area of dynamics.

    Wherein hangs my main point – what I perceive as the “hallmark” of Bryston design, and possibly the reason why a mainly Bryston system just may be greater than the sum of its’ parts.

    Every serious manufacturer in audio can do nice tonality (although there are distinctions!). Every manufacturer can lay claim to appropriately neutral measurements, acceptable noise specs, at least half-decent phase characteristics, and so on.

    Dynamic contrasts, from the rendering of small transient details in the background through to mid-level contrasts and a sense of pace and timing overall in the music, is where I hear Bryston consistently bringing it. This provides a degree of overall transparency, by way of dynamic details, is tough to beat, certainly in the upper-mid price strata that Bryston products tend to occupy.

    Dynamic contrasts & transient details are what make recorded music remind me of the live experience. Over the decades, many Hi-Fi products have sounded very good, in varying ways and to different degrees, but not a lot have had the kind of micro-dynamic portrayal I’m currently enjoying.


    Thanks for it all!

    Regards
    Brian Gammon

    P.S. – I am going to contact you as I have decided to upgrade my Model T Signatures to the ACTIVE version as I agree with you that active systems take the performance up a rung!

    SUBJECT: Bryston Model T Subwoofer – Customer Feedback

    October 2018

    Hey James,

    The Model T sub arrived on Friday and I wrestled the beast into the living room. I mean that sucker is heavy! It's the size of a Middle T, but weighs in like a full sized Model T.

    Model T SUB.JPG

    Anyway, after getting things set up, I found out that my initial location I had envisioned the sub to live at was not a good choice. The sub was canceling out with the other two subs, the actual output dropped with three vs. the other two subs alone. The subs have a variable phase control so it's really easy to adjust phasing for maximum output.

    I did some 'manual' phasing by moving the sub to a new location in a more open part of the room.... YIKES!

    The output with the three subs in operation is like triple of what I had before. I had to turn down the output to the subs as it was over powering. I moved the sub about 7 feet over to a more open area and it just popped alive. Pretty impressive; I suppose I found the right phase point for all to work in harmony.

    I love this sub; it's not only subtle in appearance, it's gorgeous and amazingly solid. It feels like it's made from a solid Ash block of timber. I guess with the extreme build quality, it gets all the potential resonances out of the cabinet.

    Anyway, thanks again!

    Bruce

    Re: Bryston speakers

    Hi Folks,

    Please see attached an incredible review (English Translation) from a very prominent German Magazine on our Bryston Middle T Loudspeaker.

    Superb pictures as well!

    In case you do not have time to read the full review here is the conclusion.

    IN CONCLUSION:

    The Bryston Middle T are characterized by:

    1. An "above everything" is balanced tonality; in very low-toned music, the bass likes to play something in the foreground, but does not sound unpleasant and does not cover other frequency ranges, but provides an impressive, stable foundation for the overall performance.

    2. Wonderfully clear-cut mids. The midrange is clearly the absolute chocolate side of the Middle T. Resolution, fine dynamics, timbres and transient reproduction are exemplary. Whether voices or instruments, small ensembles or large orchestra, classical or hard rock - the centers of the Canadians are always exemplary. In the price comparison Middle T are here very far ahead.

    3. A tweeter, which offers a decent resolution and generally supports the balanced sound rather than dominates.

    4. A certain "minimum level requirement", whispering levels are not necessarily the business of Middle T.

    5. A fascinating space. Localization, sharpness of contours and the illumination of the recording room in all dimensions are outstanding features of the Bryston speakers.

    6. Great dynamic qualities. The excellent fine-dynamic differentiation to which the Middle T are capable comes into its own when you hear something louder. Since they seem to know no bounds, they are ideal for people who also like to hear loud music.
