MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Bryston 4B Cubed – Value Award 2017!

It’s time to announce the ‘SoundStage Network’s Products of the Year’ -- the best of the best products we reviewed in 2017.

There are three main categories of POTY award:

1. Individual,
2. Outstanding Performance,
3. Exceptional Value.

Exceptional Value awards are presented to components whose sound quality is usually associated with products costing far more.

Bryston 4B3 stereo/mono amplifier:

"Has virtually faultless sound and with the added ability to drive just about any speaker with ease.

The 4B3 may well be the best value today in a high-end, high-powered, solid-state amplifier.”

SUBJECT: Bryston Cubed Amplifiers – Holland Review


Hi Folks

A very detailed and extensive review on the new Bryston Cubed amplifiers (3B,4B and 14B Cubed) from HFA Magazine in Holland ... and I mean extensive with some great pictures and paired with a variety of top notch speakers.

Bryston’s latest Cubed series really has taken the sound to a whole new level.

Anyone who has dismissed earlier Brystons for sounding harsh should really reconsider. The new Bryston sound is generous, smooth, rich and relaxed, yet very powerful, driving all the speakers that I tried with ease and that includes Vivid Giya G3 s2, Apogee Diva, Duetta Signature, Centaur, Wilson Watt/Puppy 8 and Wilson Sabrina. Even the very efficient Gustavsons are driven with majesty and verve.

Second choice is get 2 x 7B3 mono’s and use one per speaker.



Which setup will result in best sound quality – dual mono’s or dual stereo’s?


Hi,

I am wondering exactly the same thing and will audition 4b3 as a stereo amplifier tomorrow

MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Germany – Bryston 7B Cubed Mono Amp Award


January 2018

Hi James,

We just received an award for the Bryston 7B CUBED for 2018 from the very well-known German online magazine www.fairaudio.de

We are very please to receive this award from such a prestigious German magazine.

Best regards,
Edvard.

A Google translation of perhaps the most telling part the German review is:

"In short, the 7B³ deliver the finest, highest-resolution sound that I've ever seen in power amplifiers of any color and price range. And I mean "real" resolution, not the harsh halftone, the silvery high-pitch range or an over-drawn attack, with which so many supposedly high-resolution components are flirting and at the same time pretense precision only at elevated stress levels."

SUBJECT: Bryston 4B Cubed with B&W – Customer Feedback

January 2018

Hello James

I would like to inform you that after my visit to Audioconcept in Stockholm (absolutely top notch service from Robert and Fredrik) I listened to this amp.

I decided to try it out at home and they offered to visit me and it took about 10 seconds to be sure.

I pushed the button and I can assure you that this is a match made in heaven.

The music is now finally perfectly in place together with my other gear and the Bryston 4B3 was the last bit to finalize this road to “perfection”. At least for a while

Thanks again for your support and for making the music flow through your great products!


Best regards
J from Sweden

James

Out of the box, the 7BQ through my BP17 on a passive pair of MB2 are frightening me.

In a very good way. Wow....

I can't wait for the ACTIVE Middle T to arrive next week ........

Thanks to all in the Great White North!!

DS
