I would stick with your Bryston amps.
That's funny, I am quite pleased with my SX-1000's. I switched from the Aragon 8008 series which I was finding a bit too edgy for my ears. I am and using dedicated power, a balanced power conditioner and filtering so maybe some of that makes a difference?
Funny thing is I didn't like the combination so much at first but as the W4S and Aerials spent more time together I found I liked the sound. This is such a personal hobby I am uncomfortable substituting my senses for yours. I hope you can demo lomg enough to reach a logical conclusion. They get kudos from many different circles so they are worthy of consideration.
BTW, while I think the CC5 is a very good center, your wife is right, it is a monster!
Aerialsound, I have not heard the 7T so I am unable to compare them to the 9's. My use is opposite yours, 80% music, 20% movies. But based on this thread a call to my dealer is in order to check out his take on the 7T.
I don't think you can go wrong with either choice; there isn't a good and bad here, there is vanilla and chocolate...which flavor do you prefer?
