Had some time this morning, so the center channel issue came down to the balanced switch on the amp getting bumped apparently last time I reconnected the speakers. Almost everything works as it should and sounds great. Thank you Jim and Mike at Bryston for all you do, these pieces sound simply amazing and your customer service is really 2nd to none. You have a life long customer in me and I'll sing your companies praises to anyone who will listen. Dealing with Bryston is ALWAYS A PLEASURE.
To anyone considering the 4k board upgrade I cannot recommend it enough, it works and Bryston will take care of you if you have any problems, as I did, they make it right and go way beyond what could be expected, great great company.
My last issue might be Oppo set-up related or SP3 set-up related for cd playback. I get sound on dvd's via hdmi, but if I try and play a music cd no sound if hdmi is selected. The Oppo is connected to the SP3 via hdmi cable, analog 5.1, balaced cables and digital spdf.
I get sound on cd's via the digital, balanced inputs, but not the hmdi, anyone got any ideas where I should look first or suggestions on what to look for?
And the last is just a general question, the volume seems a little lower than I'm used to. The SP1.7 that this unit replaced never really saw anything over 50% for volume level, the SP3 seems to be at 67% to get about the same volume level, the amp is not clipping am I okay there or should I start planning out the amp upgrades and how much more power should I consider over the 9Bsst
