Bryston’s Model T Mini standmount speakers

Bryston has launched a standmount version of its huge Model T speakers called simply Model T Mini.

 

Though it is called “Mini”, it is not exactly as mini as the LS3/5A. The Model T Mini measures 22.5” (572mm) H x 10.5” W (267mm) x 10.0” (255mm) D and weighs 39 Ibs (17.7 kg) each.

 

Not only is it a smaller version of the Model T, but it has fewer drivers too. In fact, it looks rather conventional – it has a woofer, a dome mid and a dome tweeter. In comparison, the Model T floorstander has three woofers, two dome mids and two tweeters (See http://www.av2day.com/2012/11/brystons-model-t-speakers/).

 

From the Bryston website: “The Bryston Model T Mini Loudspeaker 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.”
