I think you will be hard pressed to find a tower speaker for the price that will match the Silver RX6, unless you have PSB speakers there.
The PSB Image T6 is a better speaker that sells for about the same price in the USA, but I have no idea what the supply or price situation would be there. I have been using it for about two years now, and I definitely am a very satisfied user. Very very nice! You might want to check the recent review in Stereophile.
Oh; I did a search and came up with a company called "Digital Cinema" in Australia that lists the PSB Image T6 at $1999 AUSD; BUT...they say "call for best price", so it sounds like they will sell for less. I would certainly check it out if it will fit your budget.
I also just found an outfit called "Complete Audio", apparently in Queensland, that says they have the Image T6 for $1499 AUSD in the Cherry wood finish, but I have no idea about shipping costs.
Audio Products Group is the Australian PSB distributor and they list about 12 PSB dealers there.
By the way, both the Image T6 and Silver RX6 are very sensitive, around 90db/watt/m, so any receiver that puts out 40 watts or more will drive them fine. Your receiver has about a 500-watt power supply, so with 5 channels fully driven it should be good for about 85-90 watts per channel.
With 7 channels fully driven that will drop to about 60-65 watts per channel; which is still quite adequate.
(BTW, any spec that implies that your receiver has more than 450-500 watts total power available is a lie, a falsehood, or an exaggeration; it's not there)

One is listening, second how to find speakers driving factor (easy or hard), give me all (lower, middle and upper) limits of music in good quality? Let's say I want to get either one of the speakers (Monitor Audio RX6 Silver / Paradigm Studio 60). I listen both. The cost of MA is $1500 pair, and PS 60 I'm getting around 2K but in retail around 2600? difference in voice quality say 30% so what do you suggest by looking the spec?
Power Output (8 Ohm) 100W (20Hz - 20kHz, 0.08% THD, 2ch driven) x7
S/N Ratio 98dB (IHF-A weighted, Source Direct Mode)
Freq. Response (Analog In) 10Hz - 100kHz (+/-3dB, Source Direct Mode)
