Concerning the Diapason award: here in Germany Bryston is somewhat the "amplifier company". Bryston digital equipment does not have the same reputation.
The Diapason d'or was awarded for some nice but exotic stuff like Shindo and Platine Verdier.
I wonder why Bryston digital equipment is not more "aggressively" promoted in German media.
The Diapason d'or for example is something that should be used in ads.
