It really depends where you are going. Supratek is in Perth (West Aus), Adelaide (South Aus) has VAF research speakers and Sonique speakers, Halcro is there, and T.M.C. cables if youre really keen, but the majority of companies are on the East Coast. Sydney has an excellent shop, Len Wallis Audio (they stock Perreaux). ME amplifiers and Dan A Digital speakers are also there. Melbourne has Redgum Amplifiers, Osborn loudspeakers, Whatmough, and as you say youre interested in auditioning a sub, try Whise in Melbourne.
Dont try anything you see on The Crocodile Hunter, the man is certifiable! But I definitely second the Hogs Breath Mdomnick!
Osborn loudspeakers,from Melbourne..In Adelaide you can find the Duntech but some say it is old design..it is up to you..VAF Research,,their I-93 is a good speaker.Krix is also an aussie brand..lots of audio companies in a small country..(19 million).If I were in Australia my first aim would be to listen to Osborn Grand Monument..They use Focal drivers in that speaker..I heard lots of praises about that speaker..
Check out Ambience speakers!! They make the most beautiful ribbon speakers you will ever hear! They are a 2 way design at 89db sensitivity and they use SOLID wood for the speaker rails. They have been around for many years and have had numerous reviews, all positive. Their web site is www.ambiencespeakers.com.au
Duntech in fact is a good speaker..I believe so..it was founded by John Dunlavy before he started designing Dunlavy..Some will say that John Dunlavy outperformed the Duntech models by the Dunlavy speakers..As for me I have no idea which one is better or if Duntech is as good as Dunlavy..the Sovereign is a big design by Duntech..
DO NOT miss the Perigee by Graeme Keet.
Graeme Keet (Graz) will soon be known as the finest speaker builder extant IMO.
With his speakers in tow, Graz made an impromptu visit to reviewer Ken Kessler, whose own speakers, the Apogee Scintilla, is an audio center stage star few speaker builders dare follow. Ken Kessler was more than impressed with the Perigee. Initially giving Graeme four minutes, busy Kessler kept the Perigee crooning for four hours.
You will be ever so sorry if you miss this golden opportunity.
