I currently own Paradigm Studio 60 v5. Love them. However, thru my local shop, I may have the chance to do the 1 yr upgrade to the Studio 100 v5 for a little bit of extra coin. My dilemma is tho, that I'm not 100% sure that it's worth the extra coin. Basically, my question is, should I just put my $$ towards a PrePro/amp for the 60's or upgrade to the 100's and do the PrePro/amp in another year or two? I use them mostly for music and my room is 18x11. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Judging by your name I assume you have a sub. How well is it integrated into your system? Going to larger speaker only gives you more bass. If I had the option I would consider upgrading to the S2.

Now if you don't have a sub then the added bass from the 100's might be worth the price.

Or, depending upon the type of music, a sub might be better. For EDM, hip hop, rap, and other bass heavy genres, a sub might give you more of that room filling tactile feeling in the low bass.
