At CES, Bryston showed off its latest series of amplifiers, dubbed the Cubed Series or SST3. As with the previous SST2 Series, the new lineup will include a combination of mono and stereo amplifier designs, ranging from the 2.5BSST3 stereo amp up to the flagship 28BSST3 mono block. Improvements include use of a new patented super-linear, low noise input buffer, more robust RF and audio frequency noise filtering, and a redesigned milled aluminum front panel.
Bryston has announced the introduction of the Cubed Series of amplifiers, replacing the award-winning Squared Series that made its debut at the 2009 CES.
The SST3 series is a statement design platform ideal for music enthusiasts, home theater installations and professional audio applications. The new lineup will roll out in phases, with the 2.5BSST3, the 3BSST3, the 4BSST3, the 7BSST3, and the 14BSST3 being first to market. The flagship 28BSST3 is in the final design stages currently. Engineering achievements are at the forefront of the new designs, featuring a patented super-linear, low noise input buffer jointly developed by Bryston and the late Ph.D. engineer Dr. Ioan Alexandru Salomie. The Cubed Series also has a more robust RF and audio frequency noise filtering circuit before the power supplies to prevent unwanted anomalies on the power line from interfering even minutely with the audio signal. And finally the new amplifiers will feature an elegantly redesigned milled aluminum front panel.
"Due to the lasting success of the Squared Series amplifiers, our engineers were afforded the luxury of being able to spend lots of time precisely developing this new line of amplifiers," explained Bryston CEO Chris Russell. "The innovative circuitry designed with Dr. Salomie is brilliant, and we plan to use more of it in future products. Some of the audible improvements we have noted during our initial testing consist of expanded spaciousness and depth of focus, better overall dimensionality, improved mid-bass clarity, and more air and openness in the high-frequencies."
All Bryston SST3 Series amplifiers will feature Bryston's legendary 20-year warranty.
