I suggest you call and talk to Mike or Robert at Audio Eden in Aurora. They are a Bryston dealer, give very fair value for quality trade ins, and I find them to be very honest and knowledgeable about the differences in various amplifiers.
Also, last time I looked they had a 350.5 in their used section. Most importantly , trust your ears, no one else knows exactly what you like or how it will sound in your room.

+1

They have some really mono blocks from Simaudio....if your setup could accommodate the extra chords, space required. For what ever reason mono blocks get me going :-)

I actually was thinking of mono blocks maybe a good 200/300 watt power house ,more warmth and dynamics that’s the space I want to move in

I got my Krell from Audio Eden and they were very fair on value for my trade in. They always seem to have some nice things in the store and pretty good value.
