“Driade Loudspeakers and Bryston
Driade are a Dutch loudspeaker manufacturer and the speakers we got a chance to listen to were their Model 2. They use a Kevlar Hexacone 7” bass-midrange cone and a 25mm silk tweeter diaphragm. They are a two-way bass-reflex floorstander that are 88.5dB sensitive and have a claimed response down to 34Hz.
The speakers, when we were in the room, were running from the Bryston 14B³ power amplifier and associated electronics. The amp has 2x Balanced Inputs (XLR or TRS), 2x Single Ended Inputs (RCA) and delivers 600W into 8Ω and 900W into 4Ω.
Music playing in the room was Leonard Cohen and the sound felt at first polite and laidback but once you actually started to listen more closely the sound was very good with bags of detail and headroom. ”
