Bryston or Aragon
I used the Aragon with Polk 2.3 SDA's a long time back and they worked well together. For the current price I think excellent. No experience with the Bryson. I'd check that the new company will service Aragon and be sure you can return if not full... 
Recommend speakers for a large living room
I have 38 X22 room with multiple seating areas and Von Schweikert VR55 Aktives work beautifully as they are adjustable in the self amplified base going down to 21 HZ at -2db, about .5% distortion across audio spectrum and rear facing ambience twee...

What is the best solid state amplifier you have ever heard?
No mention of Jeff Rowland and Dartzeel here so far. I have been thinking about Jeff Rowland  625S2 and Datrzeel 208 or 8550. Any body have experience with these brands compared to Luxman 509 or other brands that are being listed as favorites?

Shipping by UPS
Expensive and fragile things like speakers and anything with tubes, I ship Fed Ex air  or better yet Pilot Freight Air and meet the package at the closest airport distribution center (in my case about an hour 20 minutes away. Worth it to have neve... 
I want to be moved and have the music touch my soul!
Your Oppo is likely to be the weak link and causing the lack of involvement. Try something like an Ayon CD35 or used Ayon 5s. They have a tubes power supply and tubed preamp within as well as a nice Dac and comprise a very engaging front end. 
Any Audiophile Fuses UL approved?
Thanks for the helpful information. I will check these out 
Where to test tubes?
Rodman, Thanks I have contacted them.
