Middle T Active
"The sound of the Middle T Actives was definitely larger than the modest dimensions of their cabinets would suggest" - Roger Kanno Soundstage!
3-Way DSP Crossover
The ultimate expression of Bryston accuracy.
Select a Model
Bryston’s Active Loudspeakers come even closer to the ideal power response without sacrifices to on-axis response. Power response is the weighted measure of a loudspeaker’s total energy. It is not sufficient to simply design for flat on-axis response. By ensuring that power response tracks the more narrowly defined listening window closely, we can ensure that the room’s contribution to the final sound is beneficial, not destructive.
Bryston’s Active Loudspeakers leverage the incredible power of our DSP engine to enable our engineers to optimize both listening window and sound power at once. These are often competing ideals. Now listeners can have truly neutral in-room response across the whole spectrum.
Select your Speakers
Bryston offers three models of Active Loudspeaker. Each loudspeaker is expertly constructed in Canada and finished by talented craftsmen in the fine wood of your choosing. No internal crossover is present, Each driver section is powered directly from the attached amplifier.
Whichever you pick, expect realistic tone, lifelike three dimensional space, and incredible clarity. All models are protected by Bryston’s legendary 20 year warranty.
Pick your Power
Unlike with so many other active loudspeaker systems, with our models amplification is more than simply an afterthought.
Each loudspeaker requires three amplifier channels—one for high frequency, one for midrange, and one for low frequency.
A compact and attractive solution is our 24B³ Cubed Series model which contains 300 watts per bass section plus four more 75 watt channels for the midrange and high frequencies. For more power, use a pair of 21B³. Each of these three channel ‘mono blocks’ has a 600 watt bass channel plus two 300 watt MF and HF channels. Or, leverage Bryston’s extensive catalogue and build your own amplifier complement.
Command the Crossover
Inside the all new BAX-1 DSP Crossover lies the magic that elevates the system to a new ultimate performance. The BAX-1 receives line level analog audio from your preamp and converts it to digital with exacting precision. Like a traditional crossover, bands are divided, but response is also corrected. Our engineers use the powerful DSP engine to precisely neutralize system response errors that would otherwise go uncorrected.
Low, midrange, and high frequency outputs are generated which then feed 6 amplifier channels.
Do you want a custom sound? You can even custom tailor the bass response to match your room using the on-board web based user interface.
Do not worry, these colossal active speakers with three voices are very gentle and will transport you into an exciting musical world... So, many beautiful listening sessions are in anticipation with this pair of speakers.
These Bryston Active systems are always some of the most seamless and resolving 2 channel systems that I come across at shows.

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
The classic Bryston sound I remembered from my teen years... Regardless of volume level, the sound was exceedingly clean, distortion-free, linear, and accurate with crisp upper registers that possessed a sparkling clarity. Midrange had real punch, and the bass was taut, and fast.
Rarely, at any audio show, have I heard a system sound so good... Will this finally be the time for active loudspeakers? I hope so.
