SNA just announced the new SP4 in the news.  Bryston has partnered up with Storm Audio for the digital part of the processor.

Based upon what storm audio is already offering we might get an idea about what the SP4 is going to be like.

You can email James Tanner jamestanner@bryston.com  for a preliminary PDF of the SP4 as posted on audiocircle.

Looks like this is going to be an more expensive unit then the SP3 (which is going to coexist with the SP4), most likely absolutely out of reach for many of us.

A healthy portion of storm Al 'ide say ; considering Brystons aversion to auto room eq with the SP3 and now the SP4 has storms dirac live . And an upgrade path for more channels unlike bryston ; like storm..

Maybe this storm back panel with its extra 4 xlr's [as mentioned for the sp4] up the top will be an oem item for Bryston :) Its the 32 channel version so lose 16 to give an idea ..

I got StormAudio to agree to this: When 9.1.6 is available, the I.ISP (and other units in the line) will support it. Indeed, at CEDIA a 4 XLR upgrade was announced, so that their 16-channel pre/pro unit can be expanded to 20 channels. Long story short is more channels are gonna be a thing.

It will be based upon the 16 channel version with the 4 channel XLR as an update path. 

 

"The ISP 3D.20 ELITE is ideal for theaters that need more than 16 channels, for example those requiring multiple subwoofers or perhaps configured for all 3 Immersive Sound formats.
With 20 output channels and supporting all 3D audio formats, the ISP 3D.20 includes all the sophisticated control features that come with the ELITE Range."

 

I am just wondering what they mean by configuring for all Immersive sound formats. DTS-X doesn't seem to need any specific speaker arragement and Atmos vs Auro 3D seem the have similair specifications beside the Voice from God speaker. All should fit well into 16.2 channels. And I assume here, that for large and custom theatre rooms the 32 channel version is more suitable.

 

Time will tell where the digital Storm part ends, and where the Analogue Bryston part starts. The DAC section will most likely be the cross-over point. I like the Bryston sound and would prefer Bryston to do the DAC part.

Yes ; the picture was just an indication how big 3ru is and where the 16ch may reside . 3ru was chosen for future channel upgrades I suspect.. starting with just 4 .

Maybe its shorthand for the different options that are possible ie 7.1.4 ; 9.1.2  or 9.1.6 with the extra 4 xlr's ? When Emo announced 9.1.6 there was speculation the extra channels were matrixed not discrete ;now a lot of Ce's say discrete is possible too.

Ide expect Bryston would include their state of the art analog stage and psu isolation like they did in the SP3 ;also a collaboration ; so would agree.

Quote

The SP3 will feature ultimate performance Class A discrete analog circuits and isolated dual power supplies, one each for the digital and analog sections of the device.

Thinking James Tanner would never allow another situation like oppo had with lexicon so Bryston will have input :)

JT has made posted comments of the SP3 vs SP4: 

 

The SP4 is going to be much more expensive than the SP3 and unless you need all these new features there is no need to move from the SP3”

 

”...the sound quality will be similar.”

      Price: $375 Item Condition: 9/10 used but immaculate Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Vermont (VIC 3133) State: Victoria Payment Method: Cash on Pick Up, Paypal (buyer to pay the fees), EFT Reason for selling: No Longer Needed Further information:    This immaculate condition NAD Sorround Sound Receiver is now ready to go to a new home. Bought from Klapp Audio (Prahan) and well looked after since new. Always stayed in my Hi-Fi rack and comes from a smoke and pet free home. I have the original box so this can be sent via courier if the buyer can organize the transportation.
       
      NAD, the highly regarded manufacturer of high-performance audio components, incorporating NAD's ""Music First"" philosophy as the cornerstone to their ambitious design goals for this T 762 made in England.
       
      The T 762 offers Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX, DTS, DTS-ES, and DTS Neo:6 decoding, along with 7.1 Matrix, Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Pro Logic II, and the proprietary NAD EARS circuitry for creating natural surround sound from any format input, 7.1, 6.1, 5.1, and 2.0 stereo, digital or analog. Also included is an HDCD decoder plus a ""Stereo Enhanced"" mode that uses no processing, but allows the stereo signal to be sent to any or all of the selected 7.1 channels, depending on listener preference. There is also an analog bypass mode for stereo purists. Surround processing is automatically detected via the digital inputs, and the most appropriate decoding format is switched in. Conversion of the decoded digital bit stream is performed with high resolution and extremely linear D/A converters, carefully selected for their performance capabilities.
       
      The EARS (Enhanced Ambience Recovery System) circuitry uses DSP technology to extract the natural ambience in a stereo recording and redirect it to the surround channels, creating a warm, natural reverberant effect without any artificiality.
       
      Full Disclosure Power rating, with all channels driven simultaneously, at any frequency from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, with less than 0.08% THD at 8 and 4 ohms. Also specified is Dynamic Power at 8 ohms, 4 ohms, and 2 ohms. The T 762 delivers 100 watts per channel of continuous power with all six channels driven simultaneously at rated distortion into 4 or 8 ohms. Dynamic power is rated at 300 watts into 2 ohms.
       
      Dynamic power is rated at 300 watts into 2 ohms
       
      Five A/V presets can be stored for instant recall with unique speaker configuration, level, distance, surround mode, and tone control settings for instant recall. This allows a user to set up one type of playback for multichannel music and a completely different setup for movie soundtracks. Channel volume settings for sub, center, and surround channels can be adjusted on the fly without entering any setup menus.
       
      Pick up (VIC 3133) is preferred, but I can package it up for the buyer to arrange own transport arrangement.
       
      NAD HTR 2 Remote is included.

      Hi,
      I’m a bit confused about this now, because I’ve gotten different answers.
       
       
      I am using the HDMI arc connection ( it’s the only HDMI out) (Denon avr-x1600h) connected to the HDMI arc on my tv ( Panasonic fz950 OLED  (which is full bandwidth)
       
      I have my 4K blu ray player and PS4 Pro connected to my avr HDMI ports.
       
       
      When I’m playing a 4K movie with Atmos on my blu-ray player, am I getting it down-converted to something lower quality, or full lossless atmos?

      I understand that playing something from my tv, eg the Netflix app, I wont be able to get Atmos.
       
       Eg;
       
      When playing a movie with atmos connected to the  HDMI ARC port of my tv, my AVR says Dolby Atmos – True HD.
       
      Now when playing it on the HDMI non arc port, it says the say thing, Dolby Atmos -True HD.
       
       Everything sounds the same.

       I have decided to sell my beautiful large Bryston Mini T 3 Way Standmount Speakers to fund an Active speaker upgrade.

      These are large Standmounts at 570mm in height and weigh 19kg each, true 3 way speakers.
      I will throw in the sand filled speaker stands for local buyers.

      Walnut
      Boston Cherry
      Custom Veneer available at additional cost   The Bryston Mini T Bookshelf was built to be exceptionally high quality and affordable while bringing superior design to the table. New driver designs, enclosure vibration analysis, crossover refinement, and anechoic chamber testing all went into creating an amazing product.
      Bookshelf as a category technically fits the Mini T form factor, but perhaps it is better described as a compact loudspeaker. At nearly two feet tall and 42 pounds, its heft may be out of place beside your collection of literature.
      Performance
      Size isn’t the point of pride with the Mini T, the smallest of the T Series. Unusually for a bookshelf or stand-mounted loudspeaker, this is a 3-way monitor featuring a high power 8-inch bass driver. Like it’s larger siblings, dynamics and low frequencies are reproduced with a realistic sense of scale typically sacrificed when purchasing small speakers.
      Drivers
      Even in a relatively small package, Bryston’s custom 8-inch woofer, midrange, and tweeter fit neatly on the front baffle. Bandwidth remains wide plunging to 33Hz in the bass region to 20kHz on top. Each driver is powered by FEA optimized motor systems and assembled in an ultra-rigid die-cast aluminum chassis which resists sympathetic vibrations that would otherwise feedback through the front of the drivers.
      Enclosure
      Though small, the Mini T espouses each of the cabinet construction principles found in all other models in the T Series. Heavy walls and a double-thick front baffle are anchored securely by a robust bracing lattice. Like other Bryston speakers, the Mini T is virtually uncolored by enclosure or port resonances.
      Features
      High levels of SPL without distortion or compression Unit to Unit matching Custom designed drivers with die-cast aluminium baskets, substantial magnet assemblies, and custom motor systems Wide dispersion design Engineered to prevent cabinet resonances

      Hi guys. Another help me choose thread. I am currently building my house and planning to have a 5.2.2 setup in my theatre room. Room measurements are 4240mm X 3080mm, ground floor of a 2 storey home in Sydney North West. My current speakers are all Richter MK4 speakers. Have not decided on a AV Receiver yet as the build still have a few months to go but leaning towards a Sony STR-DN1080. Usage would be 80% movies and 20% music. I am looking to get a pair of ceiling speakers for atmos use. My budget is around $500 but can be stretched if necessary. Any suggestions on ceiling speakers that I should look into, which would be a match for my current setup?
       
      Reading through some other forums, I am considering the below, but this is only based on my limited research.

      Appreciate any help. Thank you.

      Item: Bryston B-60R Integrated Amplifier with remote handset
      Location: Melbourne
      Price: Reduced from $2450 to $1750!! RRP $7,999. Donation to SNA on sale
      Item Condition: Excellent apart from some rubbed off letters on front panel, but selections are still clear
      Reason for selling: NLR
      Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal
      Extra Info: Superbly engineered Canadian amp with 20 year warranty when new. Close to the quietest I've heard, with neutral and non-fatiguing yet dynamic sound. Understated slimline construction is surprisingly heavy, with output of over 60W RMS @ 8 ohms and 100W RMS @ 4 ohms. Features 4 pairs of RCA inputs plus Tape Monitor Loop, Headphone socket and removable Pre Out/Main In links. All switches, contacts and connectors are gold plated.
      This unit in silver comes complete with manual, individual test report and motorised volume control via the optional handset. All original packaging means that safe postage at buyer's expense is available.
       
      Rare opportunity to secure a highly regarded amp at a ridiculously small fraction of new retail price, as this model hardly ever appears on the used market. A bargain for those who value quality over quantity. Many favourable reviews including MasterSwitch.
