Hi Folks

Yes we finally received a ‘patent’ on new circuitry we have been working on for over a couple of years now.

This new circuitry will be utilized in the new Stereo and Mono Bryston ‘Cubed Series’ of amplifiers. It does not apply to the modular multi-channel 6B or 9B at this point but we are looking at that going forward. The newest version of the B135 Integrated amp also applies.

There are new cosmetics as well for all the power amplifiers including the 6B and 9B.

James, if possible, can you show us a photo of the new 2.5B^3 amplifier?

Also, when will these changes take place? I was about to order a Bryston amplifier this Spring so this information came just in time!

Spectacular!

I like the new look very much. It epitomises solidity and power but somehow manages to remain beautiful. It screams "quality" to me. Well done!

Mind you, will there be differences in specifications?

Cheers!

Well, they certainly look really nice but the proof is in the sound; how they differ sonically from the sst2 series. I guess that remains to be seen/heard.

3B gets an increase in power to 200WATTS. I also agree it will be interesting if the performance has improved across the series with the new circuitry and other modifications.
Price increase reasonable?

Hi Mark,

Yes the 3B gets a bit more power - it looks like about a 10% increase in prices at this point.

I am really happy with the performance of these new amps. :thumb:

Hi James,

Do you have your automated reply ready for "cubed" inquiries yet?! :)

Can you give me an idea of eta?

They look absolutely stunning!

Cheers,
James

Hi

No plans for any changes on the preamps.

Looks like for all of three weeks I had the latest and the greatest 4B (SST2). Would have held off had I known a 'cubed' was coming. Oh well (sour grapes) looks like the 'cubed' would have cost me more and can't possibly sound better (sour grapes mode off). Great new design though.

Hi

Yes introducing something new is always a crap shoot as someone has just bought.  In this case we had to wait for the patent clearance before acting.  I am working on the ability to upgrade though and think I can make that work.

Sorry are you saying that the B135 will remain the same or will be updated? performance or cosmetically?

The new designs look quite nice, they still have the quality minimalist look to them and I think they could sit next to previous generation C equipment and fit in nicely.

As always the model with handles somehow look more powerful.
