Bryston 14B SST Amplifier
To design a State of the Art, ultra high powered Dual Mono Amplifier.
The Bryston 14B SST is a balanced-output amplifier which reduces THD and IMD to unprecedented low values, (typically 0.001% or less), for a new degree of transparency, musicality and ease of listening. Superbly low noise floor, typically below – 118dB, yields an inky black silence between notes for hauntingly realistic reproduction. Tremendous power reserves give the 14B SST virtually perfect freedom from overload on any type of speaker or music, bringing the performance and realism directly into your listening environment. The ability to resolve subtle details has to be heard to be believed – it truly sets a new standard – mission accomplished.
Available in both 240 Volt 10 Amp version or 120 Volt 15 or 20 Amp versions
Over 100,000 MFD of filter capacitance per channel
Selectable gain Normal Balanced (2V), Balanced plus 6dB (1V), Unbalanced (1V)
Remote 12-Volt power trigger input
Selectable external power-up
Membrane power switch
The Bryston 14B SST employs a total new computer modeled heatsink design maximizing heat dissipation for long-term “fan-free” operation into the most demanding speaker loads.
Independent Power Supplies
The Bryston 14B SST is a 2-channel power amplifier consisting of two totally independent amplifier modules, each with its own inde-pendent power transformer equivalent to a +/- 120 Volt power supply. Each audio channel provides connections for balanced or single ended input and will supply a minimum of 600 watts of power into 8 ohms or 900 watts into 4 ohms.
Unique Burn-In Procedure:
Each and every Bryston product undergoes a very extensive “burn-in” procedure. Following a complete operational checkout, every amplifier is placed on a test-bench and cycled on and off at one hour intervals for 4 days at full output. This extremely rigorous burn-in quickly “matures” components and weeds out any potential premature failures. The result is reliable trouble-free performance for many years, and is backed by Bryston’s exclusive 20-year full warranty.
Hand Assembled With Care:
Bryston hand assembles and individually tests each and every product we manufacture. We exclusively use only the finest components in our amplifier designs, such as 0.1% metal-film resistors, polystyrene capacitors and hand selected and matched transistors to reduce noise and distortion to the absolute minimum. Bryston applies techniques and employs custom materials in our everyday construction of electronic equipment that are more typically utilized in military and aerospace industries. Our traditional adherence to proprietary parts and sophisticated construction and testing techniques guarantees your amplifier will perform for many years without concern. It also prevents any unit-to-unit variability, which inevitably is the result of any mass produced product.
Design Philosophy Ensures Sonic Superiority:
All analog signal circuitry is fully discrete to avoid the compromises, phase shift and non-linearities inherent in IC’s.
Two completely separate and independent power supplies are employed to prevent any possibility of cross-talk or interference.
Gold plated RCA and XLR input connectors provide long-term trouble-free connections.
There are two power switches on the 14B SST. The front panel SST Power Switch and the rear panel On/Off Circuit Breaker.
