MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Toronto AudioFest 2018 – Bryston Demo- Andrew

October 2018

Hi James

I attended the 2018 Toronto AudioFest Show this past weekend and just wanted to report that the Bryston T-Rex setup truly moved me emotionally, and totally drew me in to the performance.

More so than any other room at the show.

What struck me about the system was that the soundstage was massive, yet there was a character to the delivery that made the music sound effortless and relaxed. Transients and dynamics were there.

Perhaps more so than with my current Mcintosh system. The Mcintosh electronics deliver all of the emotion, but perhaps a bit too politely and too refined sometimes. I kind of want a bit more of that grittyness and dynamic punch, yet without sacrificing nuance and detail.

I know you can't have it all...but at the end of the day the Bryston T-Rex speaker was highly memorable, both visually striking and the ability to reproduce music that kept pulling me in.

Andrew

Toronto Audiofest 2018 Simplifi'd
Written by Gordon Brockhouse

Highlights

Bryston had a wild demo system in its room. For each channel, there were two Model T Active speakers, stacked vertically in line-source configuration.

The rest of the all-Bryston system consisted of a BAX-1 active digital crossover, a BDP-3 digital player, a BDP-3 DAC, a BP26 preamp, and a pair of 21B3 three-channel power amplifiers.

Not surprisingly, this system had astounding dynamics. A big honking saxophone note in Zoot Sims’s rendition of Johnny Mandel’s “Emily” -- it sounded as if the mike was right in the bell of his horn -- almost blew me out of my chair – Superb!

Of greater relevance to Simplifi readers was a silent display of Bryston’s Wireless series of powered speakers.

These are based on Bryston’s Mini A three-way passive shelf-mount, and the Model A1 and A2 floorstanders.

The Mini A has a single 6.5” woofer, a 3” midrange, and a 1” tweeter. The Model A1 has three 6.5” woofers, two 5.25” midrange drivers, and two 1” tweeters. The smaller Model A2 has dual 6.5” woofers.

Wireless-series models have the same internal crossovers as their passive counterparts, and one amplifier in each speaker.

All three models ship with a Wireless four-in-one transmitter that permits streaming over Wi-Fi via Apple AirPlay or UPnP. On the rear of the transmitter are a line-level analog input, digital optical in, four USB ports for connecting external storage devices, and an Ethernet port. It also incorporates a Raspberry Pi Linux-based computer, which makes possible network playback from NAS drives and supported streaming services, under control of a Web-based interface that can run on iOS and Android devices.

Shipments of the Wireless models have just begun
