I personally would likely find Bryston to be a bit lean and dry with Salon 2s.
Below is a link to a thread I started a few months back - there are some ideas and observations there you might find interesting. A lot of people like ML gear with the Salon 2s.
My system that drives my Revel Salon 2 speakers is this:
BAT REx Preamp
Esoteric K-01 CD/SACD one box unit
Stealth IC cables
Siltech LS100 speaker cables
the sound is wonderful. I think the Krell works extremely well with
the BAT/Rex tube preamp.
My impression is that the speakers require a high powered amp to give the control you want in the bass as well as the dynamic responsiveness.
The Salon2 is very neutral and sensitive to the amps being used. It sounds as good as the amps. The key is to experiment different amps to suit your taste. Bryston 7B SST2 should be fine. Tube amps could be a real challenge. Keep in mind that the Salon2 is a very capable speaker system. You would appreciate it more with more capable amps.
The Parasound JC-1 monoblocks could be a good candidate for experiment.
