I was wondering from owners of the bryston 4B how warm does your unit run at? And does anyone know what the power output would be at 6ohms?
Which vintage of 4B? They've been using that basic model number for at quite a few years with significant differences between the various incarnations. Do you know when it was made? Are their any extra letters in the model number?
Not sure of the age its one of the older ones with chrome handles and curly cord. Just wondering since its get a little on the warm side, I am not sure about the Model # I thinks it one of the first Gen ones just 4B not NRB or SST etc.
Curly cord means it's one of the original ones. Bryston's reliability is legendary (the new ones have a 20 year warranty.) It's normal for them to get warm. If you can leave your had on it comfortably for 10 seconds or more it's heat output is normal. As an aside if you ever do need to get it serviced Bryston is a dream to deal with and their service is extremely reasonably priced and very fast. Wonderful people.
I don't know what it's power output is at 6 ohms (amps are usually rated at 8 ohms and sometime a 4 ohm rating is also provided) but Brystons are great at driving difficult loads. What are the speakers?
Well they might be a pair of ESS AMT 6 series. I believe they are a 6ohm load. very strange speakers. lol
I've heard good things about the Heil tweeters.
Yeah, should be interesting...
if you give the exact model number, I can help. I have a buddy that works for bryston.
I Believe that it is just the model 4B not the NRB or SST models I beleive that it is first generation.
The curly cord is a dead give away. It IS a first generation, no need for further research.
the power output is 290 watts @ 6 ohms.
heat output.. too many variables in play.
