Finally received my Bryston SP1.7 last Thursday. Didn't have time to set it up until over the weekend. Spent lots of time tidying, making up speaker cables, and assembling my "flexyrack" (which I decided to have a go at after all). The system is currently operating as stereo+sub only - should have temporary rear speakers working in a couple of days. Anyway: it sounds bloody lovely, and I don't care what anybody says. And Nautilus 803s plus a servo 15 sub are rather fine too. Can't wait to see what it sounds like with 5.1 speakers and a BFD hooked up! (Must check and see if my 4B-ST power amp is perceptibly better than the 9B-ST as well). Oh, and the result of hooking the optical output of a Sky+ box into an SP1.7 is rather fabulous. Amazing how much better it sounds than using the Sky+ DACs.
