The latest version (last few weeks) of the B135 has the new circuitry.

There are no cosmethic changes planned.

James, tell us about the sound quality.
I have a 4BSST2. What is the improvement of the sound quality for a 4bSST3: 20%, 30% better with the new circuitry ?
Will there new Transformers, like Torus style?

I imagine it would be like going from an all purpose computer to the BDP1/2. You don't realize the noise is there until it's not there. The result, more detail and refined sound. :smoke:

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?

Mark

New product introductions are about price increases.

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.

Congrats James for the new amp line they look stunning.

Last week I recived my second 4b sst2 and a bryston pre to run my second pair
Of Mini T's and I'm content as can be.
The 4b's produce for me all I want and then some more.

I and sure many others came to understand that any technical changes Made by Bryston only
Come after mindfull considerations and solid pro engineering,
There for do provide out of charts better performance !

an upgrade path offer to existing references amp just back up
Better then many words how solid are the
Main design and construction.

Cheers

Itshak

"Οι νέοι τελικοί έχουν εξελιγμένη σχεδίαση για υπεργραμμικότητα"

i can translate for you the quote above

"the new power amps have very advanced design for super linearity"

cheers... :green:

Hi James, my Bryston BIT look similar to my amp now. Can my 4BSST2 Serial #5101 be upgraded to the latest SST3 circuitry and retain the same look?

Thanks.
John

Hi Itshak

Yes I can not believe the SST2 series has been available now for over 8 years. 

Which is a very long time in the audio market but unless we find a better way to attain greater linearity we are not changing for change sake. 

What has to be kept in mind though is when you get to this level of performance the changes become 'evolutionary' not 'revolutionary.'

Hi James,
Congratulations on the new amps. I'm liking that we can update our SST/2 amps. Keep us posted on when we can update.
Happy New Year to all!

Yes, I'm pretty excited about that as well! I've got a 4B-SST2 and a 6B-SST2, so hopefully the 6B-SST2 will eventually be SST3 upgrade-able as well.

James,

Will the 4bsst3 have the bit technology like the 7b, 14b?

Thanks
