I can't speak to a comparison betwee nthe Rowlands and a 14B-SST but I can advise that moving from a 4B-SST to the 14 was a huge leap forwards. The people @ Bryston will advise that all their SST amps sound the same and its only a speaker's power requirement that would show the differences between their amps but let me tell you the amount of detail I now get via the new amp is amazing. The old cliched "where did that come from" is evident on a variety of recordings. My speakers (Tyler Linbrook monitors) are fairly effecient so its not that the 14B provides a much needed power boost. I am sure that you would enjoy either choice, audition a 14 if you can.
