I'm now a happy owner of a new to me 3B3 which replaced a 2.5BSST2 driving a pair of Mini T's. The sound quality improvement I like best over the 2.5BSST2 is the relaxed nature of the presentation. I find myself listening at lower volume and still being drawn into the music. Smooth, clear and balanced, the 3B3 is most likely my end game amp.

Hi veloceleste

Yes I agree - its one of those things where you assume you have more than enough power with a smaller amp but when you put in the more powerful amp even at lower volumes there seems to be more control and micro detail available.

Enjoy!

MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Bryston 4B Cubed Amplifier – Customer Feedback

July 2020

Hello,

I am sending this message today in appreciation of my brand new Bryston 4B3 which I purchased from Glubes Audio/Video in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. I have had many different manufacturers of amplifiers in my home audio system over the past 40 years. Up until the addition of the 4B3 I thought my (edit) was a good amp. It has been very reliable and didn't give me any trouble since it was purchased back in 2003. However, when I got my new 4B3 installed last Wednesday I had no idea what I was in for.

This 4B amp has completely transformed my listening experience. Compared to my previous amp the Bryston has lifted a very thick "veil" from the music which I didn't even realize was there. The treble is sweet and extended and not the least bit harsh or aggressive. The midrange is full, but not bloated, with phenomenal vocal performance. The bass? Well what can I say?  It litetally knocks you back in your chair!!! It is tight, authoritative and deep with uncanny precision and fantastic detail.

To be frank I am in awe of my new powerhouse!!!

I did not think or even believe that changing to the 4B3 would make such a dramatic difference in my system, but it HAS!!! I had been going along for the past 40 years trying to make my system sound like the demonstration systems at Glubes and never got there. With the addition of my sweet little Bryston I AM there and I could not be happier or more satisfied. I have finally "arrived" in the true high end.

Going forward I can put any loudspeaker I desire into my system and it will sound awesome being driven by my 4B3. Thank you for designing and manufacturing this gorgeous and rock solid amplifier. Anyone who is looking to do an upgrade or are starting out as a novice in the hobby needs to seriously audition your products and when they do they will most likely be purchasing Bryston to make their system sound awesome.

Again, thank you for everything.   

Best Regards,
Christopher Richardson

Just ran across an add on CAM for sale a pair of 28 SST-2 amps for sale but they were upgraded to the cubed series.
On the back of the amps you see the SST-2 and also the Bryston cubed logo,plus he has the SST-2 face plates on instead of the newer cubed series plates.
Did not know you could UPGRADE SSt-2 to Cubed series .
Looks legit and wondering what the upgrade cost would be.

I would assume these are legit.
Sure wish Bryston did this for older models.  I'd be shipping them my pair of 7BSST2's on a Pallet.

No response as to the upgrade.
I remember a few years back a dealer mentioned the 28 sst2 can be upgraded to the cubed series.
If I’m correct the upgrade was around 1500.00 per amp.
Will find out and post.

Hi Don,

OK I spoke with engineering and we updated a few units early on to new rear panels including the new input circuit. 

But we decided not to go forward 'officially' because the price of the modification was not practical and the changes were substantial.
