Should I sell my Bryston 4B

I recently purchased a Denon 3808ci and it's now residing in a pretty space limited set of shelves and running the show in a house we moved into this summer. Given the way things have worked out in this house there really isn't space for a dedicated 2 channel stereo system. The old 2 channel system will be absorbed into a new 5.1 system in the family room including the PSB Stratus Golds that the Bryston used to run.

I do have a large shop and exercise room out back and I could see running zone 2 or 3 from the Denon into the Bryston and running some old speakers out there, but truthfully we have no need for 7.1 (just too small of listening area) so I have the amps from the Denon to assign to that duty if I should ever want to. I don't think I can reassign the front channel amps from the Denon (have to ask on the 3808 thread) but even if I could I'm not sure I really need the Bryston for front channel duty, the Denon seems to do an adequate job.

I love the Bryston, but I see the older version of it selling for $700 to $800 on eBay, the newer ST version for $1100 and up. I've got the 4B nbr version which I have not seen an used price for (anyone?). I'm thinking that if I can get $900 or more for it there really isn't much reason for keeping it.

Anyone have a convincing reason why I should go one way or the other?

If you do list her for auction on ebay, you may wish to note that Bryston' come with a transferable 20 year warranty. We have one here at my workplace.. today it would represent at least ~$3000-4000 if produced currently. It is one robust design.
Yeah, was planing on that. Mine is around 15 years old, still I guess a 5 year warranty is better than some things have brand new out of the box....
