Peterborough, Ontario January 5th, 2015 - Bryston has announced today the introduction of the AC1 Micro center channel loudspeaker in order to provide home theater enthusiasts with a high-resolution center speaker option in a compact form factor.


The design objective of the AC1 Micro was to deliver big sound from a smaller, decor-friendly enclosure. A perfect match for any Bryston theater package, the AC1 Micro is a great fit for tight spaces and provides the neutrality through the critical vocal range, visceral dynamics and superb clarity and detail that reviewers have raved about throughout the Bryston speaker lineup. "We received valuable feedback from our dealers and end-users that we needed to add a compact center speaker for space-constrained home theater systems-and the AC1 Micro is the ultimate execution of that design goal," explained Bryston's VP of sales James Tanner.

The Bryston AC1 Micro utilizes two 5¼ inch aluminum cone mid-bass drivers on either side of a single Bryston titanium dome tweeter. Like all Bryston loudspeakers, the drivers are anchored to a very robust enclosure constructed of ¾ inch MDF with ample internal bracing. The cabinet is a sealed design, a more flexible solution when placing the speaker in close proximity to the rear wall. The rear panel also includes threaded mounting holes for optional on-wall brackets.

The Bryston AC1 Micro has an MSRP of $490 each and is available now through authorized Bryston retailers and custom integrators.
