I'd first like to thank the administrators and members of this forum for making this such a great web resource; without you, this place would be nothing. Currently I have a circa '92 Panasonic receiver/cassette deck all in one unit and 5-disk changer/2 tower speakers, 21" Sony Trinitron w/o stereo sound and a Sony DVP-NS325S DVD player (non progressive). Yes, I like to live on the cutting edge of technology at home. I want to upgrade the receiver and speakers to use mainly for music listening but also as a basic home theatre system. This is going in a large one bedroom apartment so I have no use for big bass sounds, just clear music set at low levels and secondly for surround sound purposes watching DVD's. Questions: 1) Does anyone have an opinion on the Harmon Kardon AVR125 coupled with the Fluance AV-HTB 5 speaker set? I like the large 3-way tower sound and do not mind having the (to some people), too large surround speakers. 2) I am very impressed by the look of the speakers but have never listened to them. Does anyone own a set and dislike them or suggest paying a little extra for the SX-HTB set? Feel free to point me in a different direction if I am off track. But please consider that ANYTHING I buy will be better than my current *system*! Thank you again, I really appreciate this forum resource.
