The upgrade bug!
« on: 8 Apr 2019, 04:42 pm »
Ever since I bought my first Bryston amplifiers (7B-ST) like 15 years ago I have always liked the brand and the people behind it. A few weeks ago I sold my pair of 7B Cubed and my 28B-SST went a few months before that. Since I became a father I thought that I could live with my integrated Bryston B135SST2. One evening it however decided to set itself to maximum gain (N.B. without moving the volume knob), I got a heart attack but due to the modest power of the B135 the speakers survived. Living without Bryston gear is a hard life so this weekend I got myself a couple of new babies  :P

Prior to these  I have had the following power amps from Bryston
Bryston 7B-ST
Bryston 6B-SST
Bryston 28B-SST
Bryston 7B3

"Sybarite Audio" is a great name for an audio company.  I like your Primare, too.

The Brystons definitely have pride of place!

Nice system but I am replying to another statement in the post.  My B135SST2 did the same thing yours did-went to clipping volume by itself.  No harm that I can tell but still disturbing.  Did you find out why it happened?  Have other owners had this problem?
Thanks.

Since I live abroad, I have sent the amp to my friend and he will bring it to the distributer (hopefully next week). The problems with my B135SST2 started when it stop reacting to the remote control. After pushing the internal SW-reset button, it started to work again and so I guess it was a SW-bug. It worked flawlessly for a week or so but then it started to act strangely. Sometimes the output was zero even though the volume was not turned down, by moving the volume knob the sound came back. Then one day the minimum volume was still pretty high, when I wiggled the volume knob side to side (not turning) the volume changed, so it seems to some sort of signal/sensor problem. Since the incident with the full volume I have not used the preamp section but used to main in and an external preamp.

I don't want to experience "the full volume prank" once more so I won't use it until I know that it is fixed. Will keep you posted in this thread.

Thank you for the reply.  I do not have a remote.  At times it seems the volume slightly changes by itself but that could be my imagination.  Wiggling the volume control does not affect the volume, only rotating it.  My problem was over a year ago and it has not done it since.  Again, thank you.
