great review....i loved this quote:
"On "Umteyo," the final cut in jazz trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire's fabulous new album A Rift in Decorum: Live From the Village Vanguard (Blue Note, 24/88.2 download), the Bry-Fi absolutely kicked ass."   :thumb:

In terms of profit margin or numbers sold?

Hi

Ok ... we put the same markup on all our products based on making a margin large enough to sustain the business.  I know some will price their products based on what they think the market will bear.

So from a sales stand point the 2 most successful in the last few years has been the DAC's and the Speakers - although the new Cubed amplifiers are really doing well so far.

No - it still sells well so unless we can not get any more drives we will continue. There is just no way to know when the major companies will stop production of critical components.

I just got the word that the BCD-3 will be reviewed in an upcoming issue of Absolute Sound so based on what I have been told that should spur some sales.

Thanks James!

here's another question....

Wondering if you and the Bryston team would consider posting new videos - describing your products, how they're made, the engineering and design behind them - maybe some stories or interviews with executive team, engineers, and folks in professional studios.

I try to advise my audio friends to invest in Bryston gear - for three main reasons - beautiful resolving sound, high quality design and manufacturing process with 20 year warranty , and made in CANADA. It would be cool to have access to videos that i could point my friends to!

I realize Audio Advisor posts vids - but, to me, the content comes across as well scripted and kind of...well.... uninteresting.

what'd'ya think?

Cheers, TJ

TJ,

Most good videos are scripted, otherwise they come across as shoddy and unprofessional, imo. I think the Audio Advisor videos for BCD, BDP, B100, are quite tastefully done. Of course, one could add animations and "special effects" to enhance the presentation, but the essence of how these units operate (buttons, jacks, etc) is communicated adequately, imo. The thing is, there needs to be a balance between objective revelation of features and grandstanding salesmanship American-style. I think Bryston avoids the latter.

cheers

I'm talking about more comprehensive discussion. Some interaction. Expressions. Ideas. How things came to be in the Bryston gear. What went into the thinking. The designs. The challenges. Some compromises made, perhaps - in say output stage vs. cost. Ya know? real stuff.

I'm not suggesting Hollywood-style vids as you refer to - simply more interesting - for me anyway.

Ya we could do one where I try to convince the bean counters that building products that are becoming obsolete is a good idea  :lol: - that should have lots of drama !!!

And another one where I try to convince everyone that building Active speakers is a really good idea !!!

You could float the idea of  a 45 rpm custom turntable for all of the many coloured 1950 disks

Speaking of sales -- the BDP-pi that I just bought from AA is number 150.  This for a product that was introduced -- what? -- three years ago.  Doesn't look to me like you've sold very many.

Hi

Hardly any as most of our customers go for the full BDP versions.

Interesting.  I was about to buy a product of another brand when I noticed the BDP-pi.  It looked like it was perfect for what I wanted to do, plus it had the magic word "BRYSTON" engraved on the faceplate.  I've looked at the BDP-3, and I see little that it offers beyond the BDP-pi, certainly nothing to justify the stratospheric additional cost.  BTW, I was wrong: my player is no. 151 (not "150") :)
