I thought I had figured it out... I was going to get a Bryston 9BSST for the first 5 channels and use my old Rotel to feed the rear channels, all this hooked to an upcoming Anthem AVM20. Well, my local dealer did not have a 9BSST for auditioning so I got the 4BSST and gave it a try. You probably know the rest... I have heard my Mirage M5s with a few other amps but the 4BSST reached a new horizon. I do not want to settle for less now, sounds familiar? I am now looking for a cheaper 5 channel amp for the rest of the channels. My choices would be: - 4BSST with an Anthem MCA5 (used) which can be found at a reasonable price - 4BSST with 9BST (used), a more expensive option - 6BSST (same as 4BSST but a 3 ch version) with 8BST (a 4 ch. used), even a more expensive option My center channel is a Mirage MCsi, an the last option is the only one which would give it the same quality as the mains. How important could that be? I will be listening to music (multichannel included) and movies 50/50. Of course I would consider a 7 channel amp (the most convenient option) if it had the neutrality, finesse and power to drive my Mirages, but I am not sure if there is one that would exceed the 4BSST performance in 2 channel listening. Even if it did, the price would be astronomical. Any thoughts?
