Bryston Reveals Three Models from Active Loudspeaker Line
Bryston has announced the introduction of their Active Loudspeaker lineup, featuring three speaker models of different sizes mated to a DSP-enabled active crossover (BAX-1) and Cubed Series Bryston amplifiers. Two new amplifier models, the 3-channel 21B3 and 6-channel 24B3, have been created especially for the Bryston Active systems.
The three new speakers - the Model T Active, Middle T Active and Mini T Active - leverages decades of research into the science of acoustics and the fine art of audio component design in order to re-create each recording with stunning realism. Each system has been optimized using an anechoic chamber, generating over 300 measurements that reside within the system's software. Bryston Active represents a highly refined audiophile listening experience unlike anything available on the market today.
At the heart of every Bryston Active system is the BAX-1 crossover, a state-of-the-art digital crossover containing proprietary software for each active loudspeaker model. The BAX-1 receives a full-range analog audio signal from the preamplifier and performs the three-way crossover functionality and driver correction for each channel, also applying any user-selected filters for tailoring the bass response of the loudspeakers. The signal is then sent to each amplifier channel. Like all Bryston digital components, the BAX-1 is backed by a 5-year warranty.
Most active speakers utilize an amplifier built into the speaker enclosure; however, the Bryston Active solution utilizes full-size, zero-compromise outboard amplifiers engineered to deliver best performance. The Bryston 21B³ three-channel amplifier was crafted to provide ideal amplification for any of the three Active systems, providing earth-moving power and flawless precision for music enthusiasts. Two 21B³ amplifiers are required to drive a pair of Bryston Active Loudspeakers. The Bryston 24B³ is a single-chassis solution offering six channels of amplification. Delivering less total system power than two 21B³s but ample power for many listeners, the 24B³ is ideally suited for the Middle T Active and Mini T Active systems. Both amplifiers are easily connected using color-coded wiring, and both models are available with silver or black faceplate, 17-inch (without handles) or 19-inch (with handles).
In addition to the 21B³ and 24B³, Bryston Active systems can be built around any combination of amplifiers from the Bryston lineup. All Bryston amplifiers are backed by a 20-year warranty.
