We were just informed that one of the most well regarded luminaries of the audio industry, Brian Russell, President of Bryston, Canada has just passed away in his sleep. He was 68 years old.
A bear of a man yet highly affable and friendly, Brian was a regular in this part of the world whenever a new Bryston product was launched. He had this knack for explaining away what appears to be complicated Bryston audio technologies in simple lay terms. That perhaps explains his popularity with the local audio press here in Malaysia. RIP Brian, you will be sorely missed.
Bryston is based in Ontario, Canada and was founded in 1962 by John Russell, Brian’s father, a former NASA engineer.
Bryston was successfully helmed by the Russell brothers, Chris, John and until his sad recent passing, Brian. James Tanner along time family friend is the VP of Sales and marketing.
