Bryston BR-20 Pre-amplifier
Available beginning of December, 2020.
Meet the BR-20 from our very good friends at Bryston. It's a DAC, Streamer and pre-amplifier in one! This is the product we have all been waiting for!
Each BR-20 measures at or below 0.0006% THD+N—an exceptionally low number giving your music incredible room to breathe! Bryston combined the excellent BDA-3 DAC with an updated BDP streaming platform into the system so you can get the best possible digital performance from our built in player, or the digital source of your choosing. They even updated the internal headphone amplifier to have more power and lower output impedance to effortlessly power even difficult loads. Finally, Bryston offer their best phono preamp and an all new HDMI card as options for even greater flexibility in your system. We can confidently say the new BR-20 is our best preamp ever!
