Fluance ESHTB Higher Fidelity or SVS SCS-02(M) 5.0 SYSTEM


I believe I have narrowed down my speaker selection to either:


Fluance ESHTB Higher Fidelity 5 Speaker Surround Sound Home Theater System


Or the

SCS-02(M) 5.0 SYSTEM : Mini-Tower 5.0 Set w/Bi-pole surrounds


Here are my room dimensions (the screen will be on the 15'-5" wall) and I plan to run a HSU VTF- 2 Sub with an Onkyo TX-SR609. I have read reviews but have not got to hear either set. Looking for some feedback. Thanks in Advance!

Fluance makes a decent budget line, but without a doubt, go with the SVS system. For a mere $50 more you are getting better crossovers, drivers, enclosures and the engineering it takes to make all the components work together.

See, now, it is responses like this that make me think I should just forgo the whole "listening to as many speakers as possible" experience and just get the SVS M-02 series......

Are there any speakers you all think are comparable to SVS?

There are some from B&W, Monitor audio and a few others but I think you get alot more speaker for your money buying SVS as you dont pay for brick and mortar store fronts.

Re: Fluance ESHTB Higher Fidelity or SVS SCS-02(M) 5.0 SYSTEM


Thank you to all that responded to the post! I have spoken with Jack Gilvery at SVSound and decided to go with the SBS-02 System and the PB12-NSD Sub. The customer service was outstanding and they even gave me an extra 5% off my total. I sent them my room dimensions and what receiver I was planning on running and they had emails back to me with in minutes. I have never had that great of service in a big box store!

So on with the build I will post pictures as I start on my room. Just wondering if I should buy all my AV gear now or closer to the finish line. I know im going to hold off on the speaker so I can test them in my finished room.

I think buying some things early is OK - like speakers. As I saw someone say on a different thread, speakers don't go out of date.

As far as the others, I would wait - you can watch for a great bargain. For example, Jack found a great sale price for the Onkyo 809 on a weekend from Newegg, so I went ahead and bought it even though I am probably 6 months out from even being able to set it up. IMO, take your time and watch for a bargain so you can save money for room treatment!
