MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: New Bryston Active Speaker Dealer


August, 2017

Hi Folks,

I am very pleased to announce the appointment of another dedicated Bryston Active Speaker Dealer.

Welcome to:  ‘Audio By Mark Jones’



Mark has a fully ‘Active Bryston System’ on display consisting of the following:

•   Bryston Model T Expresso Walnut Active Speakers

•   Bryston BAX-1  3-way Active Digital Crossover

•   Six channels of Bryston Amplification

Having a dedicated listening room to allow customers to hear how much better Active Speakers can sound is paramount and I thank Mark for his commitment to this concept.

In a market where customers are asking for more value added from their dealer the in-home setup and calibrated active Bryston speaker system is a perfect fit.


“James, keeping in mind that I am accustom to the best gear on the planet --- CH Precision, Tenor, Magico, Kronos etc… These Active Bryston Model T’s sound just awesome !!!”

jeepers james! this Bryston stack looks like something from Star Wars, and Darth Vader! Very very nice!  :thumb:

i've been trying to figure out the best way to move towards a fully active bryston system. I can cover the amplification channels, and think the next step is
buying the external x-over. then the speakers.

i've  been reading up on your website, and maybe have encounted a typo in the BAX-1 description:

"The benefits include increased flexibility of filter shapes, the ability to make fine-grained adjustments resulting in improved on and off axis response (these are often competing objectives in passive loudspeakers), direct coupling of the loudspeaker to the driver (avoiding losses inherent in passive crossovers), and higher SLP with lower distortion".

Should it read...."higher SPL with lower distortion"

for me, that's the beauty. Clean and loud. love it.

Thanks James

Yes thanks for catching that - should be SPL.

The last line in that article about getting addicted to the speed and bass control with slam of active speakers is spot on, especially when you push up the SPL's. Congratulations James, I appreciate you and Bryston pushing the boundaries of what is possible in an audio system by thinking (literally) outside the "box". :thumb:

If I were to buy a Bryston Active system today I would want the BryFi, I like the one and done approach, all you need is a phone and you are playing music.

Today I took a break from cooking Canadian Thanksgiving dinner and sat out on my front porch to drink a coffee. 

Supertamp was playing in the living room.  I was amazed by the sound mix so far away.  Base mids and highs all were balanced and sounded just fine.  It made me reflect that the Bryston T with BAX are the best all around speakers, most consistently musical, I have ever owned.  This is referenced against solutions I still own costing many times more.

Don't just take my word for it.  Please take the time to go to TAVES in TO this coming weekend and listen for yourself.  ( My assumption is they will have a demo, but I don't know, just guessing). 

I predict Active Crossover two channel solutions are going to flourish when the message finally gets out.  Hats off to the pioneers like James.

Cheers
Drew W.

I stopped in for a few songs and thought the system sounded very nice on both jazz and Nine Inch Nails.

They also looked quite nice in white.

Hi James,



I just heard a demo of the BAX1 digital crossover in the new active speaker system put on by Gary Dayton at Audio Video Therapy in New Hampshire. 

It’s a brilliant product. 

It’s about time someone stepped up against the endless fiddling and fussing with passive crossovers which I think has gone about as far as it can.

Hi James,
 
If you recall I'm the person who reviewed your Bryston Mini T speakers for The Inner Ear magazine.

I've been convinced for years now that the correct way to do a multi way speaker is with an electronic crossover and multi amps.

I'm really glad to find another manufacturer who realizes the potential of the format and is actively pursuing it.

Well James, I am nowhere near experienced enough in high end audio to critique your new active speaker system, but I have a system that would list for twice what the full Bryston setup in your room cost, and what I heard has really got me thinking.



Unfortunately my wife and I did not make it to your room until the end of the day Sunday. We were unable to spend as much time as I would have liked listening to different types of music. I would really like find another opportunity to demo this setup again, as I would have to sell off most of my system to facilitate the purchase.

Considering that I am contemplating selling what I would consider some world class gear, that took me a couple of years to assemble, to enable me to purchase your latest achievement, should be pretty high praise as to what we heard.

The tonal balance, and clarity of the active version was astounding. Not to mention the bass! I kept asking Gary if he had a sub hiding in the side room. My wife and I were both VERY impressed!

Congratulations on quite an achievement!

Regards, Rob.

MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Announcing the Bryston Mini T Active Speaker

November 2017

Hi Folks,

I am pleased to announce the introduction of the “Bryston Mini T ACTIVE” speaker.



The Active Mini T joins the Model T and Middle T Active systems to round out our Bryston Active Series of speakers.

These Bryston active speakers are used in conjunction with our dedicated BAX-1 Digital Active Crossover and six channels of amplification  to provide a level of performance unobtainable with the current passive systems available today.

Active loudspeakers are those in which the drivers (woofer, mid-range, tweeter) are directly connected to the output of an amplifier. There are no "passive" components (large resistors, capacitors, coils etc.) in the signal path between the amplifier and the loudspeaker driver(s).

An Active System can bring a much higher resolution and dynamic control to your audio system.

The differences are not subtle and speakers like the Bryston Model T Active loudspeakers take the performance to the next level of accuracy.

James,
Do you have pricing for the new Mini T Active with BAX1 crossover?
Thanks
