I am 70% Stereo 30% Movies.  I am currently using an AC1 Micro but I would like to re-purpose it to another room with Mini A's. My Front Wides are Mini A's and Rear are On Walls.

I assumed the AC1 Center would be a better fit since it would compliment my surrounds.

Thoughts??

Thanks

Hi

Yes given the use and the rest of the system the AC-1 should be fine.

Hi James

I got a look at some large scale industry data and it said Bryston speakers account for 2% of global speaker sales over $5k.

Audio Visual Designs - Malaysia

The Bryston Mini T speakers and one very happy owner. In his own words...

"I ordered the Bryston Mini T in walnut from the very friendly people at AV Designs. I wanted a bigger pair of speakers to move up from small monitors but felt that my room was not big enough to accomodate a pair of floorstanders. I was also looking for a pair of speakers which would give good quality bass. I am happy to say that the Mini T delivered on all counts. I like the honesty of these speakers. Its uncoloured and very neutral sounding. It tells it as it is.

Big wide soundstage with excellent details but without ever sounding harsh. The party trick is the bass presence. The detail and layering of the low frequencies was an eye opener. I have not experienced a bookshelf which can give such good well defined bass. Its a good all-rounder. It can rock loud as well as sound very good for low volume late night listening.

I am a happy bunny!"

His system comprises:-
Michel Gyrodeck/Origin Live Silver/Naga MP300
Aimee Phonostage
Raspberry Pi Streamer via Denafrips Pontus 2
Accuphase E470 Integrated Amplifier.

Dear James,

Thank you. I am loving the Mini Ts. It is a real jump in quality from the previous resident Harbeth Compact 7 and Buchardt S400. I love the scale and resolution. It has totally transformed my listening room. Just a couple of questions in terms of recommendations for fine tuning.

The pair I bought was a demo pair as it was the last pair in Walnut and I got it together with the stands. I really wanted the walnut as opposed to the rosewood. I noticed that the new Mini Ts have a mesh over the tweeters. Are they still the same tweeters as my unit?

In so far as the stands, should I get it filled up with sand?

Thank you. Its an amazing pair of speakers.

BTW, I am also amazed how easily my B60 (which is more than 20 years old) was repaired when it would not power up after years of abuse. Great service from AV Designs. Its now happily running with a new lease of life in a second a bedroom system.

Hi sleme

If they are new tweeters they will have the mesh - they can be retro fitted and replace the older tweeters without any changes to the crossovers etc.  The new tweeters offer better off-axis response.

I use ball-bearings in my stands - the trouble with sand is it will leak out of the stands.

ENJOY!

MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Bryston Mini T Speakers – Dealer Feedback

September 2021

The Bryston Mini T loudspeaker fronted by the Octave RE320 all tube power amp is startling.

Dynamic, detailed and full bodied. This less than 2 cubic feet box will surprise you. Its capable of genuine deep bass requiring just a nudge from the REL to get the below 30HZ range fleshed out.

This speaker has impressed me greatly.

El Paso,
Texas

My old and trusty B60 stopped working. This was a used unit that I purchased more than 10 years ago. I sent it to AV Designs here in Malaysia to have it repaired. Whilst it was being repaired, I came home with a pair of Walnut Mini Ts which replaced my resident Harbeth Compact 7-es2. The Mini T settled in very will with the Accuphase amplification on my main setup. Over the years having the Harbeth, I forgot how good bass sounded like!  :lol

So when the B60 was ready for collection, I decided to pull the trigger when I was offered a pair of Mini A to go with it. It was the last unit in the shop. The B60 used to drive a pair of Harbeth P3esr (then Burchardt S400) in the bedroom setup. I suppose my expression of happiness with the Mini Ts prompted them to suggest I buy the Mini As as well.

I wasnt prepared on brilliant the Mini As were with the B60. A completely new lease of life for the B60. What an amazing pair of speakers. A proper mini version of the Mini T!

Bryston speakers are good in their own right and it seems to be a hidden secret amongst people who own them. Most of whom also have Bryston amplification. From my experience with the Mini T and Mini A, they are such well designed all-rounder speakers which have given me hours of joy regardless of the amplification used. Love the raised eye-brows of audio friends that come around, "Bryston speakers?". Then hear the positive comments before they put it in their shortlist of future speakers to be considered.

Thank you for such a great product!

Folks you know your speakers are held in high regard when a quality speaker stand manufacture in Germany purchases your speakers and builds a custom stand for the speakers.

"At the last held show in Munchen before this pandemic situation I presented my products in the Bryston booth  with courtesy of my Austrian distributor Avitech

The product that stand out as a most impressive in whole show were  Bryston Mini T speakers, which gave  enormous amount of really good sound even in those conditions.

To cut the long story short, I bought these speakers for myself, and use them happily in rotation with my other reference speakers."
