In your experience thus far James do they run more or less at the same temperature as their SST2 counterparts? Will they still employ the first few % of watts in Class A then switch over to AB?

Yes that part of the design is not changing.

When will Cubed series be available for ordering?
Do dealers have new prices?

Hi

We hope to start producing in Mid January and pricing is still being worked on by the bean counters.

Thanks for the link to the PDF. There is no mention of LED color choice. Please let there still be a blue LED option

Yes Blue as well  :thumb: - in fact the pair I am using at the CES Vegas Show next week will have Blue LED's

Phew, good news indeed! I actually think the new faceplate is growing on me the more I see it.

Any reason behind dropping "SST" from the name?  That big of a change, eh?

Hi

The SST was derived from the designer Stuart Taylor - so we started out with ST then SST and finally SST2. The Cubed is a new design by a different engineer and was unique enough to get a patent so we felt a name change was appropriate.

Also I like the Cubed name as it connotes 3 demensions  :thumb:

The last time I told a person I had a Bryston 3 B SST 2....my thoughts were...gosh...that's a mouth full to say. :lol:  But I was aware of how the name had changed over the years and embraced the heritage.  Sorta sad to see SST dropped.

 Love the new look but just wondering if there will be any real sound improvement over the already excellent square models.  :scratch:

That might be a good idea as well

james

If I may say so, I agree.  I think it would be a great way to clearly show that it is an upgraded unit vs. an SST2 or a Cubed without the need to look for a sticker on the back panel.

James - first of all - happy new year wishes to you. All the best in 2016!

And second of all - I can't express enough how much I am enjoying listening to my newly purchased 4BSST2 and the exquisite Bryston DAC.

And thirdly - obsessive long time audio guy that I am (explains why Bryston is at the top of my list) you have me very intrigued regarding retrofitting my new 4BSST2 to cubed version. I would be delighted to participate in any possible beta test of such a retrofit - I would gladly drop my 4B at your doorstep/loading dock in Peterborough, pick it up, and subsequently contribute to any follow up you might see fit.

In any case - could you please put me at the top of the list for squared --> cubed upgrade. Such a happy customer I would remain. 

(Maybe we should start a new discussion thread on squared to cubed retrofit).

Thank you

Hicham

Hi James, would the whole range of the New CUBE Bryston Amps Design be in display in Vegas?
Which pairs will be in demonstration with the T speakers, a pair of 28 B CUBE, or 7 B CUBE?
Thank you

All but the 28B will be on display. Not sure what speakers I am going to use yet - have used the Middle T and the Mini T's over the last 2 years.

Will the new amps be a zero feedback design?  Based on previous products, can we expect another 8 +/- year production run?

Any particular reason why the 28's won't be there? I caught in the PDF some TBD bits for the 28's specs. Is it still in development?

Hi James, does the Cube uses the same fuse versus SST2? Thanks.

No- some small amount of feedback is used.
