Well I was finally decided on gettig th Acoustic Research HC6 (refurbished) for $199 online from Factory Clearance Center. Then I ran across the Fluance AV-HTB for the same price. I've searched high and low for any negative reviews of the Fluance's but I just can't find any. I'm also a little partial to floor standing speakers. I also realize that I would probably need to purchase a subwoofer for the Fluance's since I mostly would use the speakers for movies. Based on sound quaility, what do you guys think? I am especially interested in hearing from those of you who have actually heard either of these speakers. I should also mention that this is for a second HT setup in a 12'x19' room with a 12'x12' actual listening area. Thanks in advance for your opinions/suggestions - you always seem to be quite helpful.
