Bryston speakers


Hi, this is a recent white paper from Bryston explaining all the reasons why they decided to build their own loudspeakers, which started in 2012, after having been an audio electronics maker since the 70s.

Basically, they couldn’t find loudspeakers that can provide both accuracy of sound reproduction and also deliver the dynamic output that the Bryston amps can produce.

Enjoyed reading the white paper.  Some interesting items in there.


My only quibble is that Bryston couldn't find other loudspeakers that could allow the Bryston amp to perform at it's best.


There are indeed a few brands that would fit the bill: 


1) Dynaudio:  They also make their own drivers, and are considered among the best available


2) Focal: Similar approach to Dynaudio


I know that Dynaudio ensures each speaker they send out measures within 1 db.  Hard to beat that.


Another set of speakers that would work very well are the T+A Criterion line.  They are among the best speakers I've come across, and exhibit a wide dispersion area. 


So, while I'm confident Bryston loudspeakers perform vey well, there is competition out there for the market.

Vienna Acoustics' speakers do very well paired with Bryston amps. Especially the 4B2 and 14B2.
Divine, really, with Bryston DAC/players upstream.  :thumb:

Speaking of other speakers.. If I remember, James used Magnepan 20.7s before Bryston developed their own speakers...
(I remember because I now own Magnepan 20.7s....)

^ It's great when you find the speakers that will stay for life.  :thumb:
Same here -- just not Maggies. Done "upgrading".
