I have heard this combination at an audio store in Chicago and I can say, they are magic together and with a 20 year warrantee on the Bryston, you will be happy for a long long time.
I have not yet heard the 20.7's but have read several complimentary reviews. Magnepan would definitely agree with you Jack regarding the magic between Maggies & Bryston. Magnepan used to demo their speakers with Bryston. However when Bryston started selling their own speakers the marriage was over.

While not 20.7s, I loved the pairing of my Pass X350 and 3.6s, then 3.7s. Eventually, I introduced an electronic crossover (Bryston 10B Sub), and after observing that the bias meter on the front of that monster Pass amp no longer danced, the thought of tubes began to assault me. The only way to exorcise that demon was to purchase a valve amp, so I did. A VAC Phi 300.1 displaced my Pass X350, and the delicate sweetness of those glorious ribbon tweeters revealed an even more enchanting character. Six months later, I put the Pass back on the amp perch for a second comparison (oh, my aching back), then begrudgingly decided to sell the X350 - a beast with gloves of finest satin.

Alas, life is an unpredictable series of changes, and the 3.7s now reside in the house, while my treasured VAC rests in its shipping carton in the back of the man cave - having a difficult time bringing myself to sell it, but I need to do just that. The funny thing is that I'm no longer obsessed with assembling a dream system, but simply, and thoroughly, enjoying one comprised of decidedly more pedestrian components.

No need to treat every inch. Just every other inch. Stay to a max of 50% treatment and you'll be fine. Our ears need it. Too much and it's eh.
