I've been auditioning speakers lately, with an eye to purchasing them in 4-6 months. We'll be moving into a house in fall/winter coming up and the home cinema will be in a semi-dedicated room, perhaps purpose-built in basement. I expect the room to be "about" 16x12x7 feet. I say semi-dedicated because I may not be able to keep an extra sofa-bed out of the room when all is said and done. Sorry about the long preamble but it goes to my topic. I've lately been auditioning towers as front mains because I have an affinity for 2-channel listening. My components are/will be: Sony 32" WEGA (not hi-def, but with 16x9 "cheat") Arcam AVR200 one of the following: Denon DVD2900/2200 or Yamaha S2300/1500 universal players JVC S-VHS VCR Should I be considering an all bookshelf array? The room won't be that big but I find the various towers that I've heard fairly compelling. (When I say bookshelf, though, I don't mean tiny sats like I have now) I guess I'd like to know if I'm forced to add more furniture than I'd ideally like, does the increased flexibility of a bookshelf outweigh the greater sound range of the floorstanders? Has anyone had to cope with this?
