MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Haute Fidelite Magazine Award For Bryston 3.14

December 2020

“Hi James

I am pleased to send you the review on the Bryston BDA3.14 model published in the Haute Fidélité magazine and for which this product has received an Award.”

Pascal



VERDICT

True high digital hub resolution.

State of the Art in its demands and musical performance, the BDA-3.14 won't disappoint aficionados of the brand, nor the audiophiles who seek musical performance and range of functions combined in one device.

The internal sotfware control by the web, probably is a little less ergonomic visually than the  best dedicated applications, but has the merit of being complete, upgradeable and not requiring WiFi

The quality internal streamer is followed by one of the best DACs currently available at this price and even beyond, an incredible density in musicality, efficient on all parameters.

MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Bryston Surround System – Customer Feedback

March 2021

“Hi James,

I had a chance to hear this all Bryston Surround system recently.
 
The passion for music is something I believe we have in common! I’ve been fascinated by the music since my childhood….
 
My passion for Bryston products comes since I listened to the 4B for the first time almost 20 years ago… I got really excited when I learned that Mustansir was building a room dedicated to Bryston only!
 
The Bryston room that Mustansir has built is just a dream.
 
This  room is just what I would like to have in my home! Great design, great materials great decoration and great finishing! Every single detail is taken care of.
 
And the star of the show is the end-to-end Bryston system. I can only say that I went with a friend last week once it was fully set up for a listening session… and I spent almost 4 hours there!
 

The listening experience in the Bryston room is as close as it gets to a live performance!”
 
Regards,
Pablo Martinez

Conclusion

The B1353 surprised me.

It represents a bigger leap in price over the B135 SST2  than that model did over the B100 SST. But I think it offers a bigger leap in sound quality.

While I would never dismiss the quality of those earlier Brystons, the B135 Cubed is the best integrated amplifier yet from the venerable Canadian firm.

Its sound was even more musical than that of the B135 SST2, with levels of ease and smoothness not only new to Bryston, but rare among solid-state amplification I’ve heard from anyone at any price. It isn’t cheap, but its price is not outlandish for high-end audio.

And it’s further set apart from the competition by Bryston’s 20-year warranty and standard-setting customer service.

The late Brian Russell, his brother Chris, and the whole Bryston team should be enormously proud of what, together, they have built..

Hi James,

“Here's something I'm really happy to see at Bryston -- a product that
not only represents quality and great performance, but a product that  pushes the envelope on performance.

Since those Cubed upgrades brought the distortion and noise down, and now this level of performance out of a combo preamp-DAC, it really puts Bryston in a top position.

James, the team decided a ‘Reviewers Choice’ was warranted, which we give to products that represent Exceptional  Value and/or State-of-the-Art performance. Probably both are valid here.”

In Use:

I ran this amplifier for a couple of weeks, first into my old VAF Research Signature I93 floorstanding loudspeakers – they have a nominal impedance of 3 ohms – and then into my new Dynaudio Contour 20i stand mount speakers – they have a nominal impedance of 4 ohms.

The amp did a superb job of controlling the bass end of the VAF speakers – they have a couple of 203mm woofers and a solid output down to 21 hertz, if the amplifier can deliver.

The Bryston B1353 did, with speed and remarkable control. My 20-year-old VAFs aren’t really the thing anymore for gorgeous mids and highs –they’re pretty old. It was the Dynaudio Contour 20i speakers which showed what a seductively smooth performer this amp can be, especially with a wide range of classical and jazz.

Yet when I threw some of Eminems The Slim Shady LP at it, the amp drove the speakers with superb punch and rhythmic intensity.

I wouldn’t hesitate to use any quality loudspeakers with this amplifier.
