I just read on the Outlaw forum that later this month they'll be anouncing a new line in their "home theater and two-channel audio".

http://ubb.outlawaudio.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=85748#Post85748

I think I'll wait until then before making my purchase. Besides Mark, our house sound tech, lent me a Bryston amp so I don't need anything right away.

Hey Jason

It's an older 4B Bryston (two channel/mono block - switchable). I have it hooked to the M80's via the receiver's preouts.

He told me of a cool way to listen to CD's, you hook the amp straight to the player. The amp has two hidden dials that control volume - 0 to 100%. Setting it to 0 I started the cd and slowly turned up the volume. This gave me my first "WOW" moment with my 80's. And that was only between 1/3 and 1/2 on the volume!

He has several 4B's and some 3B's that he might consider selling, interested?

Very!

I ran my wifes iPod through an A1400 in a similar fashion and the iPod has volume control so that was not a concern; talk about the best iPod player there is smile

Then send it to me, Jay, and I'll test it for possible aesthetic flaws. Just don't box it up because I won't be able to open it!

Brystons have transferable warranties, don't they?

Bryston will even "refresh" an amp still under warranty with new and updated parts for a minimal charge. Of course all that comes from the upfront cost.
