Hello!

I intend to buy 28B SST2 Bryston amplifiers to match R 907 Jamo floor standing speakers (4 ohms),
Naim dac-xps and Audio Research preamp ref 3. Mainly because this amps are supposed to play well at low levels.

As I have read it once in an hifi review, the Bryston amplifiers might be clipping, due to over heating.

Is there any issue with over-heating with the mono blocs, due mainly to their design's characteristics?
Thanks for your advice on this prosaic matter.

Regards,

GH

Was this one ever answered?
I'd have thought if the 28Bs were overheating and clipping the 907s would be molten long ago.
My 14B s get warm at full power into about five Ohms but i've never had thermal shutdown despite
very infrequent clipping. By then they're filling a 30 x 20 foot room with very loud, high quality sound.

Hi simmac,

check out http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?board=193.0 , that's where the bdp folks hang out.

There is no Bryston download. Using a browser you can access MAX on you bdp to control it.  It's more like using a browser to access a website; like AudioCircle :)

Refreshing. Got my first Bryston 14 years ago, a 9BST 5channel amp. I was hooked by the products, and also by the super service I received from PMC in UK when the amp failed after 10 years - they fixed the fault and did a partial upgrade to some of the components (I think transistors, amongst others), at no cost to me. Unbeatable service and excellent products.

Love the Bryston philosophy because they  actually stand behind their product for two decades.  They also dont play games and claim if you are not the original owner the warranty no longer applies.  Why should it make any difference who the owner is if the original warranty period is still in play?  Seems like a lot of manufacturers use that as an excuse not to stand behind their product.

The Bryston warranty is what drove me to get their amps when I had some funds available 2 years ago to set up a modest HT build (audio can be a very expensive hobby, especially for someone with limited means!).  I purchased the 4B-ST and then an 8B-NRB on the used market, both of which had some problems, but which were fixed within 2 weeks at no cost by the repair department - that's a fantastic deal, especially considering the age of these amps.  Since then, they have performed pristinely and I am enjoying them every minute in my HT, bi-amping them to the B&W Matrix 801 series 2 - they have plenty of power to drive these speakers, and the sound is natural and involving.  Bryston's repair department is phenomenal - and you get to talk directly with the technician who is fixing your amp - which is usually unheard of these days!  In the future, when and if I had the resources to upgrade or looking for new components, Bryston would be at the top of my list.

That's cool, but there's some people that think Bryston isn't any good sound-wise. The Hell with them, what do they know?

Curious why the Bryston website is not up to date with BDA2 etc?

You perhaps have heard this many times before, but you are going to hear it again;
I realize that it is the amazing service that Bryston has provided over the years that has contributed to your success, but to be able to do so continually deserves recognition. My bdp-1 has been problematic and an email to tech resulted in a telephone call from Chris while in Montreal, followed up by a 1.5 hour trouble shooting telephone call the next day. The most impressive thing about this service? Chris was to begin his vacation the moment our call ended.
To be able to foster this culture of exemplary service after so many years is incredible.
I wish you nothing but continued success and the highest praise for all your employees (and Chris in particular).

Thank you very much for your kind words - I will pass them along to all at Bryston. :thumb:

I plan to use my bryston for not just one generation, but a lifetime.  :green: this is not some random stuff I'd purchase off eBay in a heartbeat . I buy a bryston and I live with it.

I'll try to stick around for another.. 50 years.   :icon_lol: by then I'll be 96.

Mr. Tanner,
     Today I spent several hours attempting to upgrade my BDP-'s firmware from 1.73 to 1.75 in preparation for the installation of manic Moose.  I had quite a time with this and ended up emailing Gary Dayton who eventually suggested that the difficulty I was experiencing would likely require manually flashing the BDP-1's CF card.  Although the instructions were provided as to how to accomplish this, I feel I lack the requisite knowledge and/or skill needed to get this done.  It is my feeling Bryston should providing their customers with new CF cards that would allow them to enjoy the benefits of Manic Moose as well as other upgrades likely to come in the future rather than having them risk the downside associated with attempting something for which they are not trained. 

Sincerely,
mbain

Another example of the outstanding support provided by Bryston.

Still sitting on the fence and following these threads closely before jumping into the BDP2 arena.
(Haven't given up on a new BCD-2, that's a no brainier for me-just say the word)

Has anyone with a Bryston ever heard of Robert Grodinsky Research?

Yes, back in the 80's I had an RGR preamp with my first 4B. Long time ago. Haven't heard anything sense then.

Dear James

This is babu from singapore , I finally sold my 4b SST2 here in singapore because of the issue with the board twice,  But now i am using (   Temporary)  Musical Fidelity M6 i

I really miss the Bryston , ...... The  Warmth and the  no fatigue sound from my Bryston 4B SST2 .    I was thinking of Buying the Merril Audio  Class D or the  ATSAH  Class D  Power amp , 

They say the future now is with Class D ,  Because it runs cool ,    So  Can i seek your opinion on the comment about Class D.  kindly let me know your opinion.

Thanks
