Bryston Expands BIT Lineup of AC Power Isolation Devices

Now available in 5-amp to 60-amp versions with standard or rack-mount faceplates, BIT power products deliver stable, clean and protected AC power to all entertainment components

Peterborough, Ontario March 23, 2015 - Bryston has announced the introduction of new BIT (Bryston Isolation Transformer) models to serve larger applications. The new 45 and 60-Amp models feature a 220/240-volt input with a 120-volt output and are available with or without AVR technology (Automatic Voltage Regulation). In addition to these new models, all BIT products will now be available with standard rack-mount faceplates, making them ideally suited for larger residential and commercial installations.


The Bryston BIT product lineup was developed to address the need for an AC power device that accomplished three key objectives; power line conditioning, isolation and non-MOV-based protection. BIT products are ultra-duty power products that don't restrict the performance of even the largest audio amplifiers. Existing models include 5, 15 and 20-amp versions, now available with either 17-inch standard faceplates or 19-inch rack-mount faceplates.

"Bryston BIT products were developed to improve the performance of an entire entertainment system," stated Bryston VP James Tanner. "BIT products deliver the current stability and low impedance that is ideal for most amplifier designs while providing the total isolation and lower noise floor that is paramount to optimizing audio and video playback," Tanner added.

MSRP prices:

BIT-45 $5900
BIT-60 $6450
BIT-45 AVR $8300
BIT-60 AVR $8900

Bryston's new BIT products are available for order immediately through Bryston authorized dealers, shipping May, 2015.
