As its name suggests, the Mini A is the baby of Bryston’s Model A lineup. It has a 6.5” woofer, 3” midrange, and 1” metal dome tweeter in a slender rear-ported trapezoidal cabinet. All of the drive units are custom made to Bryston’s specifications. Bryston lists crossover frequencies of 160Hz and 2.3kHz.
The Mini A offers a spacious and open sound, extraordinary image stability over a wide listening area, an attractive cabinet, and Bryston’s industry-leading two-decade (not year, decade) warranty. It has very even horizontal dispersion, as the polar map shows. The Mini A does not offer deep bass, nor can it do spot duty as a PA speaker. A speaker cannot break the laws of physics, only apply them. Bryston did a superb job applying those laws to the Mini A.
Bryston loudspeakers are designed in partnership with another Canadian firm, Axiom Audio, and made in Canada. Our Editor recently used Axiom speakers to set up a decor-friendly home theater. While some of the other speakers in Bryston’s Model A lineup look like upscale versions of Axiom models, with custom drivers and more substantially-braced cabinets, the Mini A is unique to Bryston.
