Bryston is set to introduce its latest series of loudspeakers at the upcoming 2013 CEDIA Expo next month in Denver, Colo. The Canadian electronics manufacturer says it designed the new Model A speakers to complement its Model T series of products that were introduced earlier this year at CES, the company’s first speaker line.
Bryston says its latest product line leverages the same design principals as the Model T, but with a focus toward minimizing distortion and compression during music and home theater playback. The new Model A series relies upon an array of newly designed drivers including a premium quality 6.5-inch woofer rather than the 8-inch version used in the Model T series. Bryston claims the smaller woofer size achieves increased musicality from a more compact, décor-friendly form factor.
“After a strong launch of our first series of loudspeakers resulting in outstanding feedback from both reviewers and our customers earlier this year, it became clear that consumers need high-performance loudspeaker options in a full range of sizes,” says James Tanner, vice president of sales.
“The Model A lineup addresses that need, delivering the sonic realism of our larger Model T speakers from smaller enclosures,” adds Tanner. Bryston loudspeakers are available in various wood finishes, and a durable vinyl is available as a special order lower-cost option.
The Bryston Model A lineup will initially launch with a bookshelf speaker called the Mini A as well as three floor-standing towers called the Model A1 Tower, Model A2 Tower and Model A3 Tower. They’ll be available through authorized Bryston dealers beginning in the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2013.
Bryston will be adding a matching Model A Center Channel, Model A Surrounds and matching Model A powered Subwoofer in the coming months. The new Mini A bookshelf speaker features a 6.5 woofer, a 3-inch midrange driver and 1-inch tweeter in a three-way configuration.
USA/Canadian suggested list prices per pair are as follows:
- $3,250 for Model A1 Tower
- $2,395 for Model A2 Tower
- $1,995 for Model A3 Tower
- $1,200 Mini A bookshelf speaker
