Just wanted to let you guys know that I finally decided on what I was going to get. Due to huge AVS forum feedback on why I should not get fluance speakers, I decided to go with the following items,

Now I just need speaker stands. Has anyone used these before?

That's some sweet gear.

By the way, why shouldn't you get Fluence speakers? What did the AVS guys say?

They said that while the Fluance floor speakers are nice, the center channel is too weak. The Jamos floors were better than the Fluance floors and that the matching center channel did the floor speakers justice. Since they are discounted a huge amount, the Jamos fit perfectly into my budget as well.


Oh I forgot to mention, I'm not getting the sub yet, but I will probably get a BIC F12 in the next few weeks/month.

Which is still an annual community Christmas event in my old home town. Sang in it a few times myself back in the high school days. And yes, for some reason, everyone still stands for the Hallelujah Chorus (has to do with some tone-deaf British King IIRC).


I always heard the legend as that the King of England stood during that movement during the first performance, so that's why we do it, but I don't know if that's true of just a legend.
