how would you guys base a purchase w/o the test drive? the JBL's are not available anywhere near me to be auditioned. best buys around here don't even carry it, and you gotta be lucky to get it from their site (always back-ordered). not to mention there are no retailers near me that carries acoustic research products. next best this is research and hear opinions, and between these 2 sets, theres nothing but good things. the JBL w/ a dayton sub would come out to almost the full set of the HC6. basically, which do you suggest for: 1- 99% movies, 2- 10' x 24' room, of which the HT will consist of only half w/ 3 walls and an open end. thanks for all the help!
