Bryston 3B

Hello Everyone,

I recently stumbled upon a Bryston 3B power amp in a Hi-fi shop here in Manila. The price is quite reasonable considering it's reputation. It was basically in storage over some 25 years or so in the shop's storage room.

I have questions regarding it's warranty and applications.

1. Does it really come with a lifetime owner transferable warranty?

2. Would you advise hooking it up to 2 18" loaded subs? Or would it be more appropriate with a fullrange speaker?

Thank you in advance for your responses.

Bryston are wonderful amps; incredibly well built.
The warranty is 20 years, parts and labour, transferrable. You pay shipping one-way. Yours is obviously out of warranty but Brystons are still some of the best built and most reliable amps you'll find.
The 3B is only rated at 150wpc if I remember, so driving two 18" bins sounds a bit optimistic! Try it on your fullrange speakers and I'm sure you'll be happy.
Good Faith
