"Clean, Very Powerful, Fully Detailed"
The Bryston B135 SST2 integrated amplifier is without question one of the most sonically transparent and reliable audio products available. It offers performance levels equal to the finest separate audio components.
"The essential Bryston performance is as expected from this end - clean, very powerful, and fully detailed," notes Andrew Marshall in Audio Ideas Guide for May 9, 2013. "I recommend it in all its variations highly, also noting that the B135 SST≤ comes with the companyís 20-year warranty, and is designed to be simply bullet-proof and reliable over at least that time period."
"Music Exactly As The Performers and Engineers Intended"
"It didnít matter what genre of music I played, what loudspeakers I used with it, or what playback levels I used, from whisper-quiet levels to ear-shattering," reports Australian Hi-fi magazine for May-June 2013. "The Bryston B135-SST2 performed impeccably through-out, delivering the music exactly as the performers and engineers intended, without added noise or distortions and without any frequency aberrations at all."
135/180 Watts of Clean, Clear Audio
The B135 SST2 provides 135-watts-per-channel at 8 ohms and 180-watts-per-channel at 4 ohms. It comes standard with six single-ended RCA inputs, a pass-through feature, a tape loop, and a pre-out/main-in feature. A headphone jack is provided for those requiring monitoring and private listening provisions. A fully functioning remote control is optional.
The B135 SST2's pass-through feature allow for simple integration into multi-channel surround systems. The pre-out/main-in connectors provide complete separation of the preamplifier and power amplifier sections, making multi-channel system integration quick and easy. Gold plated five-way speaker binding posts and gold plated input and output connectors provide long-term trouble-free connections.
No-Compromise Power Supply
Three completely separate and independent custom toroidal power supplies prevent any possibility of channel-to-channel crosstalk, interference, or interaction between digital and analog sections. Bryston's unique ultra-linear input buffer with gain results in a substantial reduction in noise floor and distortion.
The B135 SST2 features regulated power supplies to all voltage gain stages. Each channel employs completely independent power supply. The Bryston will deliver full output to any phase angle at 4 ohms or higher.
Bryston's 20-Year Warranty
In a world where most things seem to need frequent upgrading, repair, or replacement, Bryston offers a comprehensive, unconditional, and fully transferable warranty on every audio product its makes. The company's 20-year amplifier warranty and 5-year digital circuit warranty drives it in a different direction from the typical manufacturer.
How can Bryston do it? The answer would quickly become apparent if you were to tour Brystonís plant in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. State-of-the-art design facilities, with the latest CAD and circuit simulation software, and an inventory of some of the best and most reliable parts on the planet, combine with a manufacturing philosophy that eschews the artifacts of mass production, like robots, moving assembly lines, and, frankly, shortcuts. Every Bryston audio component is handcrafted by people who take great pride in building the very best.
Rigorous Inspection and Testing
Bryston doesn't skimp on testing or rush its products through some last-minute go/ no-go check. At every stage individual parts, completed circuit-boards, sub-assemblies, and final assemblies are all put through rigorous inspection and testing procedures.
When completed, every Bryston amplifier receives a comprehensive and carefully documented test of all its functions, and the printed results of this computer-aided analysis are actually packed and shipped with each unit. During this intensive procedure, Bryston not only reject any product that falls outside of its advertised specifications, but also any not meeting an even narrower band of specifications that Bryston uses for internal testing. As a result, you can expect each Bryston product to perform as least twice as well as the advertised specifications.
