Cubed Series Electronics 2018 B Bryston Cubed Series Electronics ryston amplifiers enjoy universal acclaim from both audio professionals and music enthusiasts unlike any other brand in the world. As a result of relentless passion for superb performance and unparalleled build quality, Bryston engineers have continued to innovate since our groundbreaking premier in 1973. The Cubed Series amplifiers continue this tradition of excellence highlighted by lower distortion, increased bandwidth and reduced noise, presenting listeners with a crystal clear window into their most cherished recordings. Bryston Cubed Series Amplifiers, featuring patented circuitry developed in conjunction with Dr. Salomie, Ph.D., move the listener ever closer to the music with such visceral realism, the experience is most comparable to live performance. This is the Bryston Cubed Series. What defines high performance? Reproducing exactly what is captured in a recording without exception and without added distortion is our benchmark. Each Bryston Cubed Series product is designed without compromise in pursuit of this lofty goal. True enjoyment of your music is possible without the audio system getting in they way! What’s New? Bryston engineers, led by Chris Russell, have been busy since the advent of the SST2 Series finding new methods to reduce noise and distortion to reveal more nuance and subtlety than ever before. Cubed Series amplifiers employ significant improvements including: • Dramatically less distortion at input stage • Improved common mode noise rejection • Major improvement in EMI/RFI noise rejection • Less than 500mW standby power consumption • Updated dress panel aesthetic with clean lines and new finish. Incredible Clarity and Detail At Bryston, finding ways to eliminate distortion from our designs is a way of life. All Cubed Series electronics feature a new patented input circuit that is precisely optimized and linear beyond any we’ve used before. Featuring twelve active devices in a groundbreaking array, this new circuit both matches the amplifier to virtually any preamplifier and provides the first 6dB of gain. The new input stage is so transparent, its measurable distortion is less than 1/1000th of 1 percent! Newly designed circuitry in the Cubed Series amplifiers is virtually impervious to noise such as RFI and others induced by external and environmental causes. Our patented Salomie Circuit features a unique method of trapping distortion components in the main signal path that pass through other amplifiers only to be amplified and played by your loudspeakers. Our innovative distortion reduction method results in a much more natural and nuanced rendition of your recordings—playback more true to the original recordings and more enjoyable to your ears. Quad-Complementary topology improves linearity to a new standard of accuracy while virtually eliminating aggressive higher harmonic distortion byproducts. Quad Complementary eliminates crossover distortion by improving transistor matching and reduces capacitance in the output stage by a factor of four which improves transient response and bandwidth. The overall harmonic distribution of Bryston’s Quad-Complementary output mimics the characteristics of a class-A design but with dramatically lower distortion. Each amplifier channel includes its own fully independent power supply with separate transformer—a feature uncommon even in amplifiers far more expensive. At Bryston, we strive for accuracy and transparency because that is what sounds best. When a playback system is faithful to the recording, the listener can enjoy the most subtle details, capturing the depth and soul of the performance as the artist intended. Powerful Graceful Musical THD% Much like sports cars, amplifiers have a power band in which they perform best. Though an amplifier may be rated for 100 watts, it must be played loudly enough to overcome its own noise floor but will start exhibiting increasing signs of distortion at well below that figure. An additional source of distortion may also be proportionate to frequency. Bryston’s firstto-last watt philosophy demands Power extraordinary Bryston Cubed Series performance from power barely above idle all the way through full power output. Our power band is the full rated power of the amplifier! With this in mind, you don’t have to sacrifice performance on occasions of loud listening to enjoy a power amp that you usually only run at a few watts or vice versa. Even powerful mono amplifiers like our 600 watt 7B³ and 1000 watt 28B³ render nuances with lifelike palpability at 1 watt of output power! Which amplifier is for you? With models ranging from 135 to 1000 watts per channel, we have a match for your listening preferences however diverse they may be. Dynamics swing Frequency both ways from Typical ‘Audiophile’ Amplifier subtle shadings of brushes on a snare drum to the incredible power of a full orchestra crescendo. Bryston Cubed Series amplifiers play both just as they are meant to be experienced— with superb clarity from first to last watt. Professional Grade Unlike a surprising number of expensive so called audiophile amplifiers, Bryston models are truly built to a professional standard. Enclosures are made from heavy duty CNC machined aluminum and steel. All parts are expertly finished for both durability and attractiveness. and fail. Cubed Series amps feature large fully passive aluminum heat sinks designed to effectively dissipate heat generated by the amplifier even at high power without the need for fans. A nice touch is the chamfered corner for easy handling. Appearances Matter Drive Cubed Series amps with any preamp. With the flick of a switch, you can choose between single ended RCA inputs or balanced XLR inputs. Speakers are firmly connected with insulated gold plated binding posts that accept bare wire, spades or banana plugs. The main circuit breaker can easily be reset if needed. Power the amp on and off with the front panel switch or by connecting another device via the DC trigger ports. Most Bryston amplifiers have switchable gain for additional preamp compatibility. Many of our two and multi-channel amplifiers feature bridgeable channels which can be enabled with a rear panel switch without the need for complicated bridge mode wiring harnesses. Choose between either brushed aluminum with rich black anodized dress panels or elegantly bead-blasted matte silver aluminum dress panels. Seventeen inch wide amplifiers feature a clean and simple dress panel. Or, for a powerful classic look, nineteen inch wide amplifiers include large functional handles on the front. All PRO series amplifiers feature a distinct dress panel with handles and are drilled for rack mounting. Silent Heat Sinks The trend for high powered amplifiers is to fan cool them. No matter how quiet the fan is today, after a few years of dust collection, fans get noisy Around Back Integrate or Separate High performance is always our goal, and an integrated amplifier doesn’t have to compromise ability for convenience. Build your ultimate dream system with our separates or keep your stereo compact and discrete with our B135³ Integrated Amplifier. system from the elegantly machined and finished front panels, with our optional BR-2 IR remote control, or with a home integration system equipped with RS232. Best in class sound quality is just the beginning. You’ll find Bryston Cubed Series a joy to use in every way. Strong Beginnings Adapt and Upgrade The B135³ is actually two separate components built into one. Bryston borrowed the power amplifier section from our 2.5B³ amplifier and the preamp from our BP-17 and combined them into a neat integrated amplifier that outperforms separates that cost much more. Connect All Bryston Cubed Series electronics include provisions for system integration and control. Depending on the model, TCP/IP control via your home network, RS232, DC trigger or IR may be available. Control your By building a system of separates, you allow yourself the freedom to upgrade the components you wish without the agony of starting over. Bryston electronics are compatible with virtually every other brand available, so you can build your dream system piece by piece or in one magnificent endeavor. The B135³ has switches on the back that let you electrically separate the preamplifier and amplifier sections enabling you to utilize the preamp section if you buy a more powerful amplifier or simply use the amplifier section if you upgrade your preamp. Your investment is never wasted. A New Preamplifier Another link in the signal chain has been clarified. Our first listening experience with our patented New features have been added as well: Two pairs of Salomie audio circuitry was a single gain stage in balanced analog inputs are available alongside four our amplifiers.
