“One of the big surprises though this year was the introduction of the Bryston line of speakers.

No need to introduce the Canadian manufacturer and its no-nonsense balls-to-the-wall electronics pairing finesse with huge muscle at prices mere mortals can hope to be able to afford one day. They took the same approach to speaker design. To my complete and utter disbelief it worked.

I said disbelief because nothing could be further away from what I usually enjoy than a large tower with two dome tweeters, two dome midrange drivers and three woofers per side. The off-chance that such a conglomerate could actually sound coherent, nimble and fun baffled me but the fact was, this system with a BDP-2 file player and BDA-2 DAC driving a pair of massive 28B-SST2 power amps into the $6.495/pair Model T speakers sounded pretty good, engaging and lively without harsh edges.



I am not about to renounce high-efficiency widebanders or simple two-ways. If I did though, the Bryston Model T would mandate further careful listening. Compared to the similarly priced Rosso Fiorentino the Bryston packed far more bass power and slam but gave up on midrange resolution and tonal accuracy.

For a first attempt and at this price, color me impressed.”

Dome midrange drivers?

Hi Russell

No  5 inch mids  - the domes do not go low enough in frequency given our crossover and off-axis power response requirements on this speaker.

MUSICAL and DYNAMIC :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:



BLOG: Ears Wide Open at TAVES
Gordon Brockhouse


At the Bryston exhibit, VP James Tanner was showing off his company's new Model T speakers, which are being built at Axiom Acoustics' factory in Dwight, ON.

These are very musical speakers, as evidenced by a file of the Beatles singing an a capella version of "Because." And they have absolutely scary dynamics, as evidenced by some sound effects (breaking glass, banging on a garage door) Tanner played.




There are three versions of the Model T: the passive version demonstrated by Tanner ($6,495 per pair), an active version at $9,495 per pair, and a passive version with external crossover (allowing future upgrade to active version) at $7,495.

  It seems the  Model T needs a classy plinth to give a finish to the entire look. I would like to see an inch thick aluminum base with spikes or rubber feet options. "Bryston" could be laser cut into the plinth to match the other Bryston components. This would add some stability to the rather tall cabinet as well. What do other members think?  :idea:

At the Toronto show most people liked the OutRiggers we had on the demo pair.

I had a pair done up for the show so people could compare it to the plinth.

I will see if I can find a close up from the show pics.
