MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Bryston 14B Cubed Amplifier Review

July 2017

The Verdict:

"I did not believe that the older Bryston 14B SST2 amplifier could be improved upon!

A bastion of neutrality, gobs of power and bipolar output, bass quickness that squeezed out the last ounce of low extension.

However, the new 14B has got that power slam and more, plus relays a sense of detail refinement in smoothness, imaging and upper-end "air" over the old one. Dare I say, it is even better than the old amp with hi-res music, such as DSD 5.6, and 24/352 PCM. And I thought the old 14B was already a good hi-res capable, high power amp.

The new Bryston 14B3 Cube is certainly an Everything Audio Network Stellar Sound Award winner and a candidate for amp of the year."

Hi Folks,

Another STELLAR review from down under on the new Bryston 4B Cubed:

Favourite Quote:

CONCLUSION

"A well-designed solid-state amplifier should fulfil the purest principles of music reproduction, accepting the input signal, then transparently and harmlessly delivering it to the transducers regardless of their inherent electrical demands, providing effortless and tight control of the drivers while manifesting boundless dynamic expression, detailed resolution and accurate tonality.


In the 4B³, Bryston has covered all these bases covered...for at least 20 years."

The 4b3 is a great amp. I have it bridged to my center.

SUBJECT: Bryston 28B Cubed – Customer Feedback


September, 2017


“Good morning James,

Got the Bryston 28B Cubed amplifiers as planned and after a quick set-up, I had a first listen yesterday: OMG!

To be honest with you I did not expected a so big difference and instead of speaking within the regular terms employed in audio I will say:
Everything seems Sooooo easy now!

I have only tried my Pyramid speakers at this moment because one loudspeaker of my other pair is apart to begin the external cross over project but I do not have any doubt that these amplifiers will drive any speaker with ease.

Like I do with eveything I purchase, I took a quick look inside the amp and was very impressed by the simplicity and build quality, very, very good engineering inside! I also found the binding posts really nice.

I am already thinking of going active with a Bryston BAX-1 Digital Crossover.

Well I will stop right now bothering you with all my questions and wish you a very good day! I will do my best to be present at the TAVES in October and met you there if possible.”

Regards,
Louis

Here's another note of appreciation for the 4B3. I find it musical, neutral, non-irritating (like music), and unflappable. I tried a couple of esteemed & more expensive amps and prefer the uncolored quality of the 4B3. Very happy to have it in my system ... for a long time, I'm sure.

Oh, and it does all that without dumping hundreds of watts of heat into the room like some of the competition.

Well done! It deserves all those awards!
