When Bryston's Model T speaker was introduced at SSI 2012
, it was in the form of a prototype, on passive display. From a comment that I've seen by James Tanner (who headed up the design team for the Model T), at one point it was not clear whether this was going to be a commercial product or just a personal reference. But now it's full steam ahead for a line of Bryston speakers. Model T is available in three versions: the basic passive model, $6495/piar, the Model T Signature (outboard passive crossover, with custom-made air-core chokes and proprietary film capacitors, $7495/pair), and an active version ($9495/pair, requires six channels of amplification, not included). Other speakers in the line are the Middle T ($4600/pair), mini t, as well as home-theater-oriented speakers, a sub, and in-wall and on-wall speakers. Most of these are available now, and others are slated for shipping in May and a few in Q3. Bryston is definitely serious about their speaker line.
The speakers on demo at SSI 2013 were the Model T Signatures, and, with Bryston source and electronics, the sound was simply terrific: big, open, precise imaging, with tremendous dynamics, especially in the bass. The bass is said to be flat to 25Hz, and, based on what I heard, I don't doubt it. Bryston has a winner here.
