James

Great setup of your active T Rex model T’s at the Toronto Audio Show this weekend.   I look forward to listening to the tower arrangement of the middle Ts soon.

I noted that there were 4 different companies demonstrating active speakers at the show.  It is definitely the future. 

Please let me know when the B24 is available to purchase.

Best regards
Drew

Hi Folks,

Another of our premium USA dealers has committed to demo a complete Bryston Active System – my thanks to Ivan for his commitment to this concept.

Please see attached pic and comments - the picture of the complete system is superb!

Hi James

"This Bryston Model T Active System breaks out from the mold of "just another stereo."

It has real character, presence, and new found clarity.  It is achieved with ease, and positively separates itself from the crowd.

Very Well Done Bryston!”

Best, Ivan

MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Bryston Active Middle T’s – Soundstage Review

Hi Folks,

Please see below the link to a very extensive and thorough review of the Bryston ‘MIDDLE T ACTIVE SYSTEM’ from Soundstage Magazine.

https://www.soundstagehifi.com/index.php/equipment-reviews/1227-bryston-middle-t-active-loudspeaker-system
           
Favourite Quotes:

“No matter what I listened to, the Bryston system always sounded bigger and more dynamic than I thought it would. Its clarity and precision even rivaled that of my reference MartinLogan Masterpiece Classic ESL-9 speaker hybrid electrostatics recognized for their fast, detailed sound.”

“If you’re willing to try active speakers, give the Brystons a listen. Even if you aren’t, you should hear them, to find out what kind of sound is possible from today’s powered speakers.”

“With the Bryston Middle T Active system, everything sounded perfectly balanced, the dialog and effects precisely tracking their apparent visual sources onscreen. The experience was so involving that I felt as if I were sitting in the mixing studio.”

From the review:

"In fact, Bryston says that the latest versions of their passive T series can be modified in the field for use as active speakers."


How do you mod a passive to make it active?

As Doug Schneider noted in his feature report from the 2017 Montreal Audio Fest, “Is It Finally Time for Active Speakers?,”

Doug Schneider recommended my current active speaker in 2002 and raved. Here we are 15 years later and NOW is it time? It should be IMO.

"This began as a pet project of James Tanner, VP of Sales and Marketing, who wanted a reference speaker for his own use. To achieve the level of performance he desired, the speaker developed was a fully active design."

A DIY project gone rogue eh James?

The BAX-1 external crossover, required for all T Active models, uses digital signal processing (DSP) to divide the frequencies into three signals, each then individually amplified, and sent to the bass, midrange, and high-frequency drivers in each speaker. To achieve this, the BAX-1 uses two AKM AK5572 A/D chips to convert the incoming left- and right-channel analog signals into digital at 24-bit/96kHz resolution. The BAX-1 also has a total of six AKM AK4490 D/A chips, one for each outgoing signal, and a large toroidal transformer for its substantial power supply, to ensure that there’s plenty of juice to power the complex DSP and the six analog output stages.

When I saw the BAX price tag I was surprised. Now I see the BAX is the "secret sauce". Couldn't you get 90% of the performance with a traditional internal active crossover and reduce the cost? This BAX reminds me of the outboard equalizer JBL uses in the Synthesis line the SDEC.

If I was a two channel fan I would just buy these and a streamer and be done. GREAT review. Did you catch the compliment "delivering a wonderfully surreal aural experience?" It sounds like the reviewer fell in love with this system.

One thing he went on and on about was the bass. I never knew why the bass in an active system was so in your face dynamic. When he described how the signal gets directly coupled to the driver I was enlightened. I recognize that dynamic slam when I hear an active system but could never put my finger on how to describe it and he did a good job.

A question for James..
Does the tweeter on the active version of the speakers have any capacitor wired in?  Just in case?
