7B SST2 is pretty sick!!

Of course, it'll work. The question is will you actually utilize the additional power that a 7B SST provides. I doubt it unless your room is huge, you sit very far from the Gallos or you've already blown your hearing.
I owned a pair of 7B SST amps driving a pair of M&K 4 ohm reference monitors. The sound was effortless, relaxed and very transparent. While doing a level matched comparison of preamps, I checked the voltage at the speakers. I was surprised at how little power I was actually using at the typical SPL I listen.
I'd look into new speakers if you just have to spend some money.
I've not used the Bryston, but bought a new Magtech to replace my Gamut D200. Driving VSA vr4jr's, th difference was dramatic in some areas. I never knew what the bass of these speakers was like until they had the power reserves of the Magtech. Really like a different speaker. Much more authoritative bass, tighter, just amazed me. Had purchased the amp to drive new Maggies and wanted to see what it would do while awaiting the speakers.
Guess the point I'm making is that the reserves of power WERE apparent, and audible. I'd say give it a shot.
