Home theater fans rejoice! Bryston has just announced a brand new SP4 Surround Processor, which will be developed in collaboration with French company StormAudio. As part of the collaboration, StormAudio will also leverage Bryston’s Cubed Series amplifier technology in a number of upcoming 2-channel and 4-channel amplifiers. This is not the first time that Bryston has partnered up with other manufacturers – some of the past relationships included companies such as Gold Note, Harman, PMC and Axiom Audio.
The Bryston SP4 will be a 16.2-channel processor and allow customers to add four additional channels. It will support all the latest immersive surround formats, such as Dolby Atmos, Auro-3D and DTS:X as well as legacy formats. The SP4 will also feature Dirac Live room correction, giving home theater enthusiasts access to the latest technologies within a Bryston home theater. Most critically, the SP4 will be built on a 3U modular platform, enabling Bryston engineers to integrate advanced technologies and make upgrades available to consumers, extending the life of the product. The SP4 will also be compatible with popular control system platforms, including Savant, RTI, Control4 and Crestron. Expect to see the Bryston SP4 for sale in the second quarter of 2018.
