Interesting how two "professional" reviewers have a different take on the Bryston room.
"In a system that featured the world premiere of Bryston's 24B Cubed 6-Channel (300W times two, plus 75W times four) amplifier (est. $10,995), Bryston's "get down to business" sound was intriguingly disembodied, with a lively top, somewhat dry midrange, and less than perfectly controlled bass."
"Here at the show Bryston has assembled one of their six-channel actively-driven and DSP-controlled 2-channel speaker systems. That may sound confusing at first, but to sit and listen to this all-Bryston offering is to have everything clearly displayed in front of you in a field of sound that is expertly measured and precise."
Granted they might not have heard the same music being played but still... the difference in their experience is telling.
Its hard to reconcile one saying the sound was "disembodied" and the other "precise"
No wonder us audiophiles argue about "stuff" all the time.
