I would like to read more about these (2) amps from owners. Yes, either one will be a step up for sure. I want to read about which one has the most current.

I used to own a GFA-555. It was very nice for the money, but the Bryston gear is in an entirely different league, sonically. (I owned a 14BSST for years and have auditioned a couple of all-Bryston systems.) I for one would go for the B135, and I can't imagine you would be disappointed.
I can’t comment on the Krell item, not having heard any Krell gear for over a decade.
FYI, the Krell does 200w/ch @8ohms and 400w/ch into 4ohms!! It replaced my FPB 300/Phantom combo...it's that good! It is extended, fleshed out and dynamic. Sound staging is amazing with great image spread and detail. A great PC and clean AC are required. If it sounds etched then it is indicative of problems elsewhere. Of course some listeners dislike realistic frequency extension in favor of a more colored or muted top end.
