Peterborough, Ontario February 4th, 2013 — Bryston, LTD (www.bryston.com) has announced that award-winning studio designer Carl Tatz has selected the Bryston 4BSST2 stereo amplifier to power the control room monitors in a studio designed for multi-Grammy®-winning engineer Bob Bullock. “I brought the first Bryston 4B to the Nashville studio scene in the ’80s. It has since become the world standard for pro studio amplification. When budget permits, I always spec Bryston for its effortless performance, high resolution sweet top and unmatched low-end muscle,” reported Carl Tatz. The 4B is the most popular of the Squared Series amplifier and delivers 300 watts into 8 Ohms or 500 watts into 4 Ohms (900W into 8 Ohms (Bridged Mono). The 4BSST2 features balanced and unbalanced inputs, selectable gain (23 or 29dB) all in a convection-cooled fully aluminum chassis requiring no noisy cooling fans. All Squared Series amplifiers from Bryston are available with silver or black faceplate (3U + .55″) and in 17-inch width (without handles) or 19-inch (with handles). A rack-mountable Pro Edition is available in black. “Bryston first unveiled the 4B amplifier back in 1976. The 4B, (and all its successors up to the 4BSST2), have been adopted as the among the most popular studio reference amplifiers of all time. We are excited that both a respected designer and an esteemed engineer chose Bryston for this pioneering project.” Chris Russell, CEO of Bryston, LTD.
Bullock’s control room is the first to employ the Carl Tatz MixRoom™ concept, which was designed to emulate the look and performance of the Tatz’s award-winning custom control room designs at a fraction of the cost.
