    Bryston 4B ST, 3B ST and 7B NRB. All are excellent, and I highly recommend them.

    Old...still kicking, been working since day one with no problems.
    I like it.
    Has DTS and optical in and as I remember still uses power transistors instead of the lousy sounding chips.
    One of my favorite audio settings effects is "jazz club"
    The others settings are fun to play with and there are a lot of them.
    Having a good center speaker is a must for movies or theater effect setting. Using the tv speakers didn't cut it for me.
    It is powering 2 modified Valencia's, left and right, Iconic home made copy from late '50's for center all orginal still, rear - Tannoy C-6 speakers...Also on "B" speaker setting, L65's in the kitchen.
    The RCA's out feeds my two Altec 9440A's amps for my contrabass sub and second set of speakers, 4343's. It is fun with all of them on.
    Even with the volume up...the clarity is amazing. Never have it over 1/3 volume yet. The Star Wars #2 dvd at the end when all the troops are boarding the star ships and some of the ships are taking off. Nothing is lost or distorted and it is very clear.
    The only problem I have had in the past is that with the high effeciency Altec speakers, the built in overheat cut out would cut in about once a week or so after several hours of listening. I was using only about 1/8 volume on the dial.
    Moved the settings in the receiver to have the amp see the speakers as less effecient. Fixed that.

    Someday I'll upgrade when I can figure out how to put a 70mm 22 foot screen in my living room.

    Yamaha RX-Z9 for L,C,R,LR, RR, LP, and RP, a modded dBX 150 Watt sub amp (to be replaced by a Yamaha or Carver with LOTS MORE POWER) on the W15GTI, a Sunfire Signiture True Subwoofer (has its own 2,700 watt plate amp), and two Aura 35-watt amps for the couch shakers.
