Hi All,
I'm new to the HomeTheaterShack forum and the Home Theater Hobby. I'm putting together my first home theater room right now and have a question.
I have an Onkyo SR-TX506 7.1 receiver rated at 75 WPC.

For almost the exact same price of $399 delivered I can get either of the set ups below:

Fluance AVHTB+ and their AVBP2 Bipolar surround speakers
or
Yambeka AV-7

Each set has a similar form factor of 2 towers, a center and 4 surrounds, which is what I am looking for.

Any recommendations one way or the other, or for this price point are there other, better alternatives?

Thanks!

Dan

Thanks for the input. I looked but I can't find where Onkyo makes any tower/surround setups similar to the form factor of the Fluance and Yambeka setups I outlined in my original post. And the PSB's appear to be well beyond my price range. Or am I just looking in the wrong place for them?

Sorry, I have never heard either. I have been tempted to try out the Yambeka's just for fun. Have you had a chance to read the Yambeka review ?
Probably going to want a sub with either set-up, at this price point the specs on the speakers may be a bit,... um,... optimistic. OTOH, not much else available at this price point either, especially if you want floor standing speakers.
Yes, I've read all the reviews I could find for both Fluance and Yambeka, all seem to be very favorable. I like the looks of the Yambeka's better and am leaning that direction, but I'm wondering if the Bipolar surrounds that Fluance offers would add a more 3 dimensional sound quality to my theater room. Really just looking for some more data points before I pull the trigger.
I agree with you on the sub. Initially I plan to hook up an old Sony Sub that I have left over from an old HTIB setup, and will upgrade as budget allows.
