Thanks James!

I should have mentioned that I will be driving main speakers with 28B's.

In my current system, I've done all the tone tests etc. with my SP3 and using a sound pressure meter to check all the volumes for all speakers with my current Bryston amps. Maybe your suggestion gets a better result, I'll need to try that.
