Bottom Line:   
This was my first foray into seperates, replacing an Pioneer 3 channel receiver. I was very fortunate to buy this from a vendor who supplied musicians. Some rich fellow had special ordered the 8b-ST, found 120w x 4 to be lacking, and had returned it to get Byrston monoblocks. I got the unit "used" (for about 1 day) from the vendor who couldn't resell it to his professional musician clientele.

I have the 8b-ST. 120 watts per channel x 4. Ground life switch. Bridgeable. Balanced and unbalanced inputs. I auditioned this against the Acurust 250 watt amps as well as B&Ks. I bought the Bryston because no other amp provided front-to-back as as well as left-right soundstage seperation. Listening to a Bryson is like listening to music in "planes" rather than a "cloud". As well, the ST series is ultra quiet. No white noise in the speakers when there's no signal present.
