The Bryston 14BSST2 Stereo Amplifier ‘delivers a dynamic range that has to be heard to be believed’.
“The Bryston 14BSST2 Stereo Amplifier is a marvelous power amplifier. It produces clean, low distortion, neutral sound, at power levels few of us have experienced. Regardless of how much power one has, we typically listen to music at only a few watts. But the overhead with an amplifier like the 14B means delivers a dynamic range that has to be heard to be believed.”
