The BAX-1 is Bryston's new state of the art digital crossover. Specially programmed for full compatibility with their loudspeaker models, the BAX-1 is a perfect fit for your Bryston active system.

The BAX-1 is Bryston's new state of the art digital crossover. Specially programmed for full compatibility with their loudspeaker models, the BAX-1 is a perfect fit for your Bryston active system. Composed of two channels of analog to digital conversion, the BAX-1 converts full range analog audio from your preamplifier, to an equivalent digital audio signal (sampled at 96kHz and decimated to 24 bits). This signal is passed to a high-powered DSP core which performs the 3-way crossover function for each channel, and applies any user selected filters for altering the bass response of the loudspeakers. Six bands of audio (three per channel) are passed to six digital to analog converters, which then feed six amplifier channels (three per loudspeaker) via six balanced analog outputs.

The Bryston Fully Active Loudspeaker Systems dispense with passive crossovers found in conventional loudspeakers in favor of inserting the crossovers before the amplifier. The benefits include increased flexibility of filter shapes, the ability to make fine-grained adjustments resulting in improved on and off axis response (these are often competing objectives in passive loudspeakers), direct coupling of the loudspeaker to the driver (avoiding losses inherent in passive crossovers), and higher SPL with lower distortion.

This fully active loudspeaker system combines decades of Bryston research into acoustics, electronics, amplification, and state of the art components to recreate your recordings with stunning realism. A superbly designed active loudspeaker system can bring higher resolution and dynamic control to your audio system. The differences are far from subtle and the Bryston Active Loudspeaker System takes the audio performance to the next level.

"This was the classic Bryston sound I remembered from my teen years, with tons of drive, dynamics, and SPLs. 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."
