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.



http://www.hifi-advice.com/blog/review/analog-reviews/amplifier-reviews/bryston-3b-4b-and-14b-cubed-power-amplifiers/



Favourite Quote:

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.

Thanks for your fast response James.Very appreciated. Pity indeed there will probably no be cubed version of it realized.Maybe a solution for me could be the Bryston 3 B- cubed in combination with another 3 channel amplifier?(secondhand krell)Because i'm intended to buy the Sp3 processor and maybe a BDA3 dac and BDP 3 music player if i have enough money in the pocket. Sorry for my bad english.

Regards Erik

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!!

The summary from the German review translated by Google:

The Bryston 7B³ are characterized by ...

a) the proof that "real" transparency and transparency are absolutely music-worthy or promote long-term capability - the Canadians are exceptionally subtle-silky and are among the most transparent and translucent amps I know.

b) tonal neutrality.

c) an equally "fast" as unencumbered enemy dynamics.

d) a bass range, which leaves no doubt about the draft, energy content and rough dynamics, that mature transistor monos are at the start, but the 7B³ make it rather jagged-fluid flutschen than that they push massive and deep black.

e) a linear, airy, precise, at the same time well-integrated, organic-sounding tonic.

f) highly differentiated mids without any special sound design - no extra dose of comforting warmth and indulgence, but also no exaggerated coolness.

g) a class-appropriate, official stage illustration. However, the way in which even the subtle and short (transient) components of the music are given a plastic life of their own deserves an extra applause in this price class as well.

h) an absolutely robust, high quality, but not exactly glamorous workmanship.

i) energy efficiency still acceptable for monos of this design and performance class (75 watts each at idle).

Points c), d), and g) might have become a bit lost in translation, but it appears that the reviewer is buying the amp.  "the 7B³ have been playing with me for over eight months and will remain permanent."

Overall, the 7B3 amazing amps.  Plan on using my pair until the warranty runs out.

MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Bryston 4B Cubed Report

February,  2018

“Hi Gents,

Well, I have to tell you that I hooked up my 4B3 last night and expected to listen for a half hour or so.





Not at all what happened! After playing the very first track on my Middle Ts which I've had for some time now.

I was nothing short of mesmerized.

To say that the amp transformed my system would be an understatement.

EVERYTHING was so much better that I was doing that age old thing of listening not only to current favs, but pulling out old stuff I hadn't listened to in years and being amazed and enthralled with how fabulous everything sounded. It was jaw dropping!

Don't get me wrong, I know how good our products are, but it was the first time I've had a first hand experience with a Cubed amp. After listening for over 3 hours and having an experience that was so moving in it's intimacy with the music, I finally had to pull my self away. My Middle T's were virtually unrecognizable as they had improved so much, it was like I had a new pair of speakers that was at least ten times better (and expensive)!

By the way the 4B Cubed replaced a Krell amp that was no slouch IMO. I could go on and on with all of the audiophile superlative adjectives and descriptions, but you already know all that!

Thanks again, for enabling me to have an experience with my system that I haven't had with anything else in so many years.
