I have never heard the Golden Ear speakers, I really like the Paradigm Studio 100's.

I appreciate the input! Honestly, I could swing the B&Ws, I'm going to find a local dealer and just go listen.
Yes go listen.
All of the 800 series speakers are very nice.
I am not trying to talk you out of the B&W's but listening to some nice towers in the $3k - $4k / pr range is probably prudent.
The RF-7's should be easy to find, Studio 100's are worth a listen but Paradigm is sometimes hard to find, and Martin Logan makes some nice speakers that should be widely available.
Tannoy, Sonus Faber, Dali, Vienna Acoustics all have some very nice speakers too.

My local dealer has Tannoy and B&W. Going to head over there this week for a nice long listen.

Check out the Salk speakers also. I would love to have the Soundscape 8's for my main speakers. Of all the speakers I have seen lately those, and the new Paradigm speakers catch my attention the most.

If for no other reason than to look at, I might consider these paradigms. Lol

GoldenEar is Sandy Gross' latest speaker company. He's one of the co-founders of Polk Audio and the founder of Definitive Technology, so he's been around the block a few times.

I own the Goldenear Triton 1s and they are fantastic speakers. I originally had the Triton 2s and I loved them and the only reason I sold them be sure the 1s came out. The 1s are fantastic speakers that I highly recommend. I'm a fan of Paradigm as well. Just my two cents

Re: $10k upgrade budget

I went to audition some Triton 1's today at my nearest dealer, one hour away. Found out when I got there they are appointment only! Doh...
