Sneak Peak!

Hi Folks,

We have a review coming on the new Bryston 4B Cubed amplifier from Positive Feedback magazine coming soon!

I have not seen it yet but when the reviewer requests to purchase the review sample my assumption is he liked it!!!

Looking forward to the review. IMHO, the 4B series borders on legendary, especially considering value. I started with a 4B NRB years ago and kept on upgrading as allowed. Could never find another amp that came close to it for sound quality per dollar, especially in the bass. Glad to see the 4B series is still doing well.

Hi

Yes the certification and safety people are saying any upgrade has to be re-certified and that is really cost prohibited so it does not look like we will be able to offer upgrades.

Thanks for the response, that is too bad. Sorry for the bad grammar, could it be "due" to posting with an IPhone?

Hi Folks,

Please see the attached link to a review on our new 4B Cubed amplifier from Positive Feedback Magazine.

Favourite Quote:

Parting Thoughts

The sonic advances achieved with the new input stage have resulted in a singularity of sorts. This damn thing has perhaps the sweetest, purest top end I have ever encountered in a solid state amp at anywhere near the price (and way beyond), and a tonal finesse that rivals a fine modern tube amp, especially from the mid-bass and into the lower treble. Coupled with the amp's iron-fisted bass range and superbly low noise floor—a combination which allows micro and macro dynamic nuances to shine unimpeded—and you have one helluva performer.

Is there really anything to be gained moving from SST2 to Cubed? Lowering the already extremely low and inaudible noise in the SST2 is not going to let you 'hear' more is it?

No harm upgrading of course but you have to pay more though.

Sure there are already plenty of good reviews but I have yet to see any with objective comparison and measurements...

Call me a sceptic!

Simple answer...yes, very much worth the upgrade.
