If buying new, if you can do a 2-4
day road trip I would recommend Legend speakers in Nowra, visit the larger hifi stores in Sydney, boutique brands like Redefy and privately tee up SNA members for specific brands like Lenehan, SGR, Wyndham Audio, VAF that interest you. This allows you to audition a large proportion of available brands in Australia. The stores/homes should provide realistic 10k amp/speaker combos which work well. You might not find a true night and day differences to your base line Paradigm Studio 100 which have sold well over several versions and produced by a established technically based brand. Auditioning widely you may find a sound combo that works for your preferences.
