Bryston has announced that they will be working in collaboration with StormAudio, a premium audio hardware manufacturer based in France, enabling both companies to leverage their respective design and manufacturing expertise in an array of new product offerings. As a byproduct of the cooperative effort, Bryston will be unveiling an SP4 surround processor and StormAudio will be leveraging Bryston’s award-winning Cubed Series amplifier technology. Bryston has demonstrated past success partnering with respected A/V brands such as Harman, PMC, Axiom and others.
The SP4 will be a 16.2-channel processor with an option to add four channels to achieve 20-channel mode. The SP4 will support all popular immersive surround formats, such as Dolby Atmos®, Auro-3D® and DTS:XTM as well as conventional formats. The SP4 will also feature Dirac® Live room correction, giving home theater dealers and 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. The Bryston SP4 is expected to become available Q2, 2018.
