I just had a very enjoyable shopping experience buying a 14B3 here in Switzerland from the excellent Hifi shop Hifi Zurmühle ( https://www.hifi-zm.ch ) in Luzern.   I spent about 5 hours in the shop listening to the 14B3 and my old amplifier side-by-side. 

The 14B3 is really is an exceptionally good sounding amplifier.  I'm replaced my Simaudio Moon W8 with the Bryston 14B3 and I am surprised by the improvement in sound quality. 

Well done Bryston - I'm impressed. 

Regards

Ron

Just wanted to praise you guys at Bryston for the amazing cubed series amplifiers!

I have been running for several weeks a pair of 7B3 Cubed mono blocks on my Sonus Faber Olympica 3 speakers. Your amps have replaced my 10 year old MBL 8011am mono amps. These amps listed for 15,000 dollars back then! I have to say the 7B Cubes are a mass improvement. I have lost the bass bloat from the MBLs and gained definition in all frequencies! What makes the 7Bs so special, is the fact they don't call attention to themselves! They just do their job! They will let you know what is connected up stream!

In my case it was a bonus since I am using a EMM labs pre 2 preamp. For digital the New Marantz SA10 flagship player with a VPI turntable. The 7B's have virtually disappeared from the system! I am telling all of my audiophile friends about your products!

Thank you to my Canadian neighbors for making such an incredible product at a very fair price!

Herb from New York!

THE VERDICT:
Bryston has built a winner with the 28B cubed amplifiers.

Nothing can touch these in terms of performance for the price.

Just be cautious with the volume control. These produce so much clean power, a dB meter might be a good thing until you get used to just how loud they can play.

MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Bryston 14B Cubed & Magnepan MG-30

July 2019

James,

We used Bryston.

Dear Inmates,

Once again, extensive use of diffusers (at Codell Audio in Montreal) helps to make some of the best sound I have heard on these tours.

Reference Recordings made at Minnesota Orchestra sound like Jim Winey's 11th row seat (slightly to the right of center)

Wendell Diller,
Magnepan

Hi James

You make reference to a new 9B3 above.  Is there a new 6B3 coming as well?  I don't see any details on the Bryston website.  Release date(s)?

Still loving my Bryston Active systems.

Hi Drew

No I think we are going to discontinue the 6B as the new 620B Cubed amplifier is 6 channels at 200 watts and any 2 can be bridged to 350.

Glad you are still enjoying your Bryston Active systems - there is no going back once you have heard a good active system! :thumb:

620B???   More details please!  With that being built at behest of Storm Audio and looking at the back panel, does this amp have the same circuit topology as the 9b or is it class D?

Hi servingko

Storm approached us about a 6 channel amp (they have Digital amplifiers already) for them and we decided to have our own version as well.

It is a Cubed amplifier but has Ethernet control etc. demanded by the custom installers. In our case there will be a version without fans and a version with fans.

It is at least 6 months out.

Thanks for the update and a fanless version is a must!

Woohoo! When will the media hit the website?

I'm excited... means it might be time to upgrade to 9B3 and 4B3 :) :) :)

Stumbled on this review of 28B3. A hard lesson learned, apparently.

Thanks I had not seen this - re-enforces the fact that there is no better/best in our amplifier selection - just match the power requirement to your speaker needs and there is no performance penalty with lower powered and less expensive versions of Bryston amplifiers.

Quick 9B3 question for James - I google-found a 9B3 manual, but the 9B3 doesn't show up on Bryston's website? Anyway, the manual shows 200W / ch @ 8 ohms. There's no power rating at 4 ohms though. What would it be? 300W?

Hi Grit

Yes 300 + watts.
