Today, there are more SSP options on the market, but few of them are as up-to-date as the AV7702. Considering the AV7702's hardware and feature upgrades from the AV7701, I am impressed Marantz managed to keep the price so close to the old AV7701's.
As its name suggests, the Mini A is the baby of Bryston's Model A lineup. It has a 1" metal dome tweeter, 3" midrange, and 6.5" woofer, in a slender rear-ported trapezoidal enclosure. All of the drive units are custom made to Bryston's specifications, in a Canadian factory.

Jay is an attorney by day, and a musical omnivore by night. Jay seeks out multichannel recordings, with or without video accompaniment. He also enjoys 2-channel music on digital and vinyl, as well as TV and the odd flick. Jay picked up his love of music from his mother, who was cool enough to go to Woodstock…but square enough to actually buy a ticket for it. Jay approaches audio and home theater from a music-first perspective. His main interest audio-wise is gear that pushes the boundaries of realism in the home, especially speakers and room correction systems. However, he is also very interested in products that expand the possibilities for music lovers on modest budgets, and gear designed to provide a well-balanced sound in spaces where a full-bore audio system is impracticable. Jay has a special interest in correlating subjective impressions of speakers and room correction systems with acoustic measurements. A Washington DC native and die-hard Washington football fan, Jay lives in Atlanta (ITP) with his wife, daughter, and their two ferocious mini-lions.
