Introduction: This Bryston preamplifer is arguably the best preamplifier Bryston made before the BR-20.
Notes: This is a current model. We are constantly bringing new and exciting products in our showroom, and while we are reluctant to say goodbye to our BP26, it is time to showcase something new. "The Bryston BP26 preamplifier offers a significant step forward in capturing the subtleties, nuances, and emotions of recorded music. All aspects of the signal flow are enhanced with lower noise and distortion figures, and higher load levels, offering a rich and vibrant audio experience." But that's Bryston lavish superlatives marketing-speak talking... In our opinion, the BP26P was a new threshold for Bryston preamplifiers. This preamplifier, in operation with the Bryston 7B ST, established Bryston as a peer with Levinson, Moon and Ayre and other world class brands at world class prices... this preampifier is THAT good and with the Demo pricing, it is a world class product at an attainable price.
This preamplifier is our demonstrator with original boxes, manuals and has been well cared for. Read more at Bryston
"The BP-26 won an Editors' Choice Award 2020 from The Absolute Sound
magazine, which noted, "The BP26 sounds musical and engaging with fabulous rhythmic drive and momentum. It is tonally neutral with an open quality that does not veer toward edgy or forced. It imparts a sure-footed foundation with good bass extension and control. The Bryston’s musicality is more along the lines of a winning, agile tunefulness, than musicality derived from a beguiling, silky lusciousness."
The April 2008 issue of the British magazine What Hi-Fi Sound and Vision lists their top choices and best buys in quality hi-fi components for 2008. The Bryston BP-26 not only made the list, but also earned the highest possible rating of Five Stars.
"Sound and Vision magazine observes that the BP26 and 7B ST "blends transparency with insight and punch better than anything we've heard at this price."
The Inner Ear Report calls the Bryston BP-26 "a component worthy of the term high-end." According to the review, quot;Bryston's production work is first rate and the components used in all their designs are of top quality."
