MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Bryston Middle T LoudSpeaker – Customer Feedback

February 2019

“Hi James,
 
Just thought I’d let you know that the Middle T’s are in and installed. 

They sound fantastic … much better in my room than in dealer demo rooms.


The ‘Walnut Espresso’ colour is very nice.

I also got the Mini T center (in black).
 

The first thing I noticed listening to familiar music is how well they separate out the instruments.  Each instrument is effortlessly heard separate from the others and clearly in its place in the soundstage. 

Even my wife noticed this right away.  My old speakers were pretty good but in comparison the instruments were kind of mushed together. 
 
Also, I had to use subs with the old speakers which meant that the output from the DAC had to be processed.  The Middle T’s don’t require subs so I am able to listen to pure 2 channel without any processing. 

The resulting sound is beautiful, far and away the best I’ve heard in our home.
 
Thanks again for your help with the decision.”
 
Best regards,
Wayne

Hi Folks,

Please see attached an incredible review (English Translation) from a very prominent German Magazine on our Bryston Middle T Loudspeaker.

Superb pictures as well!

In case you do not have time to read the full review here is the conclusion.

 IN CONCLUSION:

 The Bryston Middle T are characterized by:

 1. An "above everything" is balanced tonality; in very low-toned music, the bass likes to play something in the foreground, but does not sound unpleasant and does not cover other frequency ranges, but provides an impressive, stable foundation for the overall performance.

 2. Wonderfully clear-cut mids. The midrange is clearly the absolute chocolate side of the Middle T. Resolution, fine dynamics, timbres and transient reproduction are exemplary. Whether voices or instruments, small ensembles or large orchestra, classical or hard rock - the centers of the Canadians are always exemplary. In the price comparison Middle T are here very far ahead.

3. A tweeter, which offers a decent resolution and generally supports the balanced sound rather than dominates.

4. A certain "minimum level requirement", whispering levels are not necessarily the business of Middle T.

5. A fascinating space. Localization, sharpness of contours and the illumination of the recording room in all dimensions are outstanding features of the Bryston speakers.

6. Great dynamic qualities. The excellent fine-dynamic differentiation to which the Middle T are capable comes into its own when you hear something louder. Since they seem to know no bounds, they are ideal for people who also like to hear loud music.

What is the retail price of the A1? I can sell my Paradigm Studios and I'm considering the A1 for surround duty.

Fantastic !  It’s hard to find subs with high level inputs. REL has them but I can’t use as REL due to having a balanced amp and their Speakon connector.

MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Roberts Bryston System – Beautifully Done!

Sent: Thursday, September 5, 2019.

Hi James,

Please see picture of my Bryston setup.

I now have the Bryston 28B3 mono amplifiers, BP26+MPS2 preamplifier, BDA3 DAC, Bryston cables throughout, Bryston BIT 8 Isolation Transformer and the Bryston Middle T speakers.

Bryston is the absolute best audio gear I have owned. And I have owned a lot of high end gear over the years.

The sound of Bryston is so sweet. Detailed and have the best deep bass and dynamic I have heard. An unbelievable grip on the speaker. Never get tired after hours and hours of listening.

Robert

Hi Gene

What is the power rating on your amp and how big is your room and what levels you usually play at?

The Vinnie Rossi Lio integrated uses and AVC tube stage and the mosfet amp module outputs 25 watts. I usually play music at low to medium levels. I had the Mini A's 4 years ago with my bigger Parasound gear but then moved on to the Mini t's. I have since decided to simplify and go smaller. I used the LIO with Harbeth 7's and since went smaller to the Harbeth P3 ESR SE's. Great gear, great sound but I do remember the fun I had with the Mini A's and the white looks soooo damn beautiful. The dealer has also listed several of Mini A's in various wood finishes. ..White, Walnut, Natural Cherry on Audiogon.

Speakers arrived in beautiful Piano Gloss White. I have them set up on a pair of sand filled 28 inch stands. The Vinnie Rossi LIO is having no problem driving them. They need break in time so right now the Harbeth's have the upper hand. I plugged the rear ports as I have done in the past with my Bryston speakers because of distance to the rear wall and I am incorporating my Velodyne sub very lightly. Lot's of great detail and the brightness of the speakers is reducing daily. One nice thing about the LIO is the ability to change tubes, in this case I can add a warmer Amperex 6922 should I feel the need.  The gloss white speakers are beautifully built and Bryston packaging is superb for protecting the speakers during shipping. I can recommend this dealer to anyone else who was looking at the ads on Agon for the other Mini A's he has for sale. I will update over the next few weeks as the break in and tweaking continues.
