Hi James,

I would be very interested in reviewing the active Middle Ts.

I was just telling some of the other guys how good the active Model Ts that were demonstrated at HiFi Centre sounded this past weekend in Vancouver.

Like the Cubed amps, very precise and linear sounding from top to bottom. Sounded like a much more expensive speaker system and a lot of expensive speakers don't integrate as well or sound as coherent throughout the entire audio band.

Hi James,

Greetings from Italy.

My MIDDLE T’s ACTIVE

Everything arrived safe and sound. And I must admit, the Middle T's Active as well as the 4B3s are simply magnificent!

I will send you some pictures soon.

Best regards,
Dario

SUBJECT: Bryston Active Model Tís with BAX Crossover

James

First impressions..... My Model Tís with new BAX Active Crossover

Two words: Extremely impressive!



Much better than I would have ever imagined possible. You are rivalling my love of ESL mids and highs with outstanding bass.

Perhaps the best overall setup that I have owned...and I have owned a lot of various speaker technologies. Very few with an acceptable WAF.

The Tri-amping I have done over the last three years on my Model Tís was an improvement over the passive Signature crossover but the BAX is night and day better, and I am the first to admit I was as skeptical as they come.

Of course the engineer in me wants to understand how is this possible? Lol. My guess is the phase alignment of the drivers is much better with the BAX.

The pro crossover equipment I have used has no such real capability except for a crude time delay of crossover curves to account for different driver locations in a venue.

So far I am just using the default settings. I used the user interface for 10 minutes to fiddle but just reset everything back to flat for now.

Time for that beer!

Drew

Re: BRYSTON MODEL T ACTIVE SPEAKERS

Listening to the Signature Ts ACTIVE playing Roger Walters's The Wall at 95 dBa according to the B&K SPL meter.

The 7Bs are cooking but the sound is just FANTASTIC.

Deep and clear. Not a hint of over driving distortion.

Absolutely amazing. A concert in my living room........

July 2017

Hi Folks,

Great Bryston Active speaker setup and sound at our dealer in Saskatoon.

Hi James,

I have attached a recent picture of the active system in the Bryston Room.

It is absolutely fantastic as the performance is profoundly realistic with rich deep bass, liquid midrange and air in the top.

Any album I have put on has been fantastic!

Thanks James!

I just played my new Bryston BAX-1 Digital Active Crossover on my Model T Signatures for a short while...

Absolutely superb!

Itís such a refined and polished sound now...and the sound stage and detail is incredible...

Itís not like day and night compared to the passive Xovers...which speaks a lot for the excellent quality of the passives...But itís a whole new level now in terms of resolution and detail...

Awesome!

Later...I played my MD collection...all from Radion recordings over 20 years...and I never heard this kind of detail...details I have never heard before...complete accuracy...like a veil has lifted! 🎸🎺

By the way, the Hana cartridge also came for my BLP-1 Bryston Turntable ...and it sounds great out of the box ...superbly balanced sound...exactly what I was missing all the timeÖ🍾🙏

Cheers and thanks for making it happen James!


Best regards,
Tom in Singapore

SUBJECT: Bryston Model T Active Ė Vancouver Audio Show


July, 2017

Hi James,

I recently had the opportunity to hear the latest Bryston Active Model T system at the Vancouver Hifi Centre Audio Fest.

I am particularly interested in the Middle T.

Other than the main speakers in a 5.1 set up, are there any special connection regarding the other speakers? I am thinking of using the Mini T for rears/surrounds as well as the Mini T centre Do you foresee any issues going that route?

The sound quality with the Bryston Active Model T was truly one of a kind.

July, 2017

Hi James,

Sorry for the delay in writing you back the first impressions about the Middle T actives and 4B3s / 2.5 B3s set of amps I have received more than 10 days ago.

I was out of town for work so after a couple of days of having this marvelous set in my home I was still unable to set it up immediately. However, I have now had the opportunity to assemble the complete Middle T Active system. I mounted the complete Bryston Middle T Active set: 2 x4b3s + 1 x 2.5B3 + Active Middle T's and Bax-1. Unfortunately I had only the chance to warm up the system for a couple of hours and just see how wonderful these amps and speakers look. I will send you some pictures soon.

And I must admit, the Bryston Active Middle T system is simply magnificent!

Even if your goal (l agree jewelry doesn't have any relevance in playing music) was not to build jewelry pieces of furniture but musical devices the look is magnificent, and the new improvements really achieved new standards for your brand esthetically and functionally.

Sorry for my not perfect English, but my main language is Italian. Will be back soon!

Regards,
Dario

I agree with Dario.
The new cubed amps look even better than their SST2 predecessors.
Just hooked up my new 7B3 replacing 7BSST2. And the sound ... Wow
