In a world where many brands are building “planned obsolescence” into their products such that after some period of time customers are forced to buy new versions of their products to replace the old, Bryston takes the opposite approach. Instead of forcing you into NEW models, the company wants to help keep past purchasers of Bryston gear in wedded bliss with their OLD “vintage” gear via a new Back to the Future product restoration service.

Here’s a dilemma…imagine you make a product that is so good that it may be your peak achievement. It’s built solidly with great technology, sounds great, and works today…and for many years of tomorrows-to-come. Your engineers forgot to build in “planned obsolescence” where the product will “automatically” require upgrading a few years down the road. In fact, it’s built so well, you put an industry-leading 20-year warranty on it!
How do you get owners – who are, for the most part, blissfully enjoying this product for years and years – to upgrade to the latest version with even newer and better technology? It is a conundrum that Bryston faced…and has now solved…by offering an easy upgrade program for owners of their famous 4B amplifiers.
