Hello to you all from Adelaide.
In the past year, my system has started to fail, and as a result i am replacing all the components.
I started with my speakers, i bought the Paradigm Studio 100s for the front with the CC690 center, with those i have a Def/Tech Supercube 2
and at the rear for now, Paradigm Monitor 11s. My old faithful receiver which has had some repairs done is a Denon AVCA10SE (AVR4800 in the US?)
This amp has been great for the last 13 years or so however, when i really crank it there are some CDs (The Wall track 2) that shut it down with these speakers.
Also, my Denon DVD2900, as nice as it sounds with SACD/DVDA hes stopped loading CDs and only has RGB out for video, now that i have a Samsung D8000 60 inch, it's old school and so
That too is in need of replacement. Which is why I'm here.
I am hoping for confirmation or suggestions for alternatives from you special AV peeps.
I have been wanting the Oppo 105 for ages hoping the price will come down however, no signs of that yet. I was also directed towards the Yamaha Aventage 3020 as a great match for my Studio 100s
Mainly from the guy that sold me them (and has the 3020) i have no reason to doubt him as he has the same set up in one of his houses however, as i am ready to do the deed, i want to be confident the next purchases are the right ones for the next 10-15 years.
So, what do you think, is the 3020 and the 105 a good choice for my Paradigms? It's all about music for me, the DVD movie/foxtel option will sound good regardless i feel, I'm just curious and a little anxious about finding out there were better options that i don't know about. The 3020 i can get for around $2500AU (the last time i checked, could be less now) and about $1500AU for the 105.
All suggestions very much welcomed.
Thanks in advance for your comments.
