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.

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

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.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20

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 As I saw someone say on a different thread, speakers don't go out of date.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!
