The Bryston Mini T Bookshelf 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.

Bookshelf as a category technically fits the Mini T form factor, but perhaps it is better described as a compact loudspeaker. At nearly two feet tall and 42 pounds, its heft may be out of place beside your collection of literature.

PERFORMANCE

Size isn’t the point of pride with the Mini T, the smallest of the T Series. Unusually for a bookshelf or stand-mounted loudspeaker, this is a 3-way monitor featuring a high power 8-inch bass driver. Like it’s larger siblings, dynamics and low frequencies are reproduced with a realistic sense of scale typically sacrificed when purchasing small speakers.

DRIVERS

Even in a relatively small package, Bryston’s custom 8-inch woofer, midrange, and tweeter fit neatly on the front baffle. Bandwidth remains wide plunging to 33Hz in the bass region to 20kHz on top. Each driver is powered by FEA optimized motor systems and assembled in an ultra-rigid die-cast aluminum chassis which resists sympathetic vibrations that would otherwise feedback through the front of the drivers.

ENCLOSURE

Though small, the Mini T espouses each of the cabinet construction principles found in all other models in the T Series. Heavy walls and a double-thick front baffle are anchored securely by a robust bracing lattice. Like other Bryston speakers, the Mini T is virtually uncolored by enclosure or port resonances.

ACCESSORIES

Magnetically attached black fabric grilles are standard. With the speaker comes padded feet and spikes each of which may be screwed into threaded inserts found at the base of the loudspeaker. Padded feet (pictured left) are suitable for protecting hard surfaces beneath the speaker from damage.

Spikes provide a sturdy coupling to softer shelf materials. Also available are custom stands which elevate the speaker from the floor to the ideal listening height. Each stand has a heavy cast base and the columns can be filled with weights (available from Bryston) for extra damping and stability.
