Will there be a preamp only version?

Hi James I’m going to bite the bullet and start over fresh.  I’m going to use this stock and stream from the internal Pi via Roon.  I’m guessing I won’t be using any input?  I didn’t see or what button I would be on.  Thanks, Mike

Hi Mike

The Streamer is the first button on the left.

Hello,

I have read the thread, and somewhere it is mentioned that Bryston is not a fan of room correction.
However, when I was at Dirac's website. Bryston was mentioned, and selecting the link brought me to the BR20 page of Bryston's website.
Now I am a little confused. Is this an error at Dirac's website or something else?

Thanks for your time.

Regards,

Olaf

Hi Olaf

One of our products - the SP4 Processor - has Dirac as a feature so that is why they list us.

As a company though we do not recommend room correction above about a 120Hz for a variety of reasons having to do with the way a loudspeaker radiates its energy into a listening room.

James when do you think these will hit stores or demo units to listen to.

I hope late January - we are over 100 backordered and we may be closed down for another 28 days due to Covid.

Yikes!  First a fire at the chip plant, then a COVID shutdown.  What's the latest on production of existing orders (mine was placed in late October)?

Hi

We are starting production on Monday but with a small staff so hopefully in mid January we will be able to get a few out.

Hi James,

I am interested in the B20. I am wondering will there be any form of tone controls too "slightly" modify the sound of the source material?  I noticed today a very interesting product from Parks Audio that does line level Tilt, Air, Treble and Base manipulation.  The return of a great idea by Quad.

Cheers
