Sure there're some pairs around, problem is the owner won't let it go as easy as the new 800 series owner do.

What i meant to say/ask is would they be a worthwhile upgrade from paradigm studio 100 v2?

Yes, if you are using with it with powerful amp for stereo music.
And No, if you are using it with AVR for HT

There's a Hi-fi shop in Johannesburg Park Station, I forgot the name but it's at Ground floor, next to Standard bank ATMs and almost opposite Chicken Licken. They've kept those ever since I've known the shop and I think they had them for around R15k or so...They probably still have them for sale and hopefully at a lower price.
