The Center of your System
A preamplifier can make or break your system. It's the part you interact with the most. All signals pass through the preamp from the source to your speakers. The quality and integrity of this piece is key to your enjoyment of good sound. Bryston engineers each of our preamps to have the highest fidelity possible regardless of channel count. Whether you choose the limitless configurability of our SP4 16 channel processor, the elegant simplicity of our venerable BP-6, or our ultimate statement of fidelity, the BP-17³, you will certainly find your Bryston preamplifier to be a joy to own and welcome in your system.
Pure Signal Path
All of our preamplifiers are designed to have as little distortion as possible. Sources are buffered using our discrete operational amplifiers, pass through our tightly channel matched volume controls, and pass to the output through the finest quality components. They are really just a straight wire with gain!
The Features You Need
Each of our preamps and processors have a variety of inputs and outputs available ranging from basic analog RCA and XLR to HDMI and digital S/PDIF and USB. Based on your source components, and whether or not you want surround, you can find the preamp that's right for you.
We mean it! Our preamps are available with 17 or 19" wide front panels finished in black or silver aluminum. Further, most are available with optional modules for phono and digital playback as well. Built-in features simplify your stereo and offer the same great sound as our separates.
The BR-20 is a fitting tribute to our late dear friend and colleague Brian Russell.
The Entire Team
The Bryston BP-26 preamplifier and matching MPS-2 power supply together comprise a flexible, feature-laden, great-sounding preamplifier that will likely make most owners extremely happy.
