Not doubting the 210Rt's but where's the fun in that?

If I go for 210rt, can I use a 210rm as center or would you suggest going for another 210rt as center?
Tuning-

Here's my take-

I really liked the 210RT, built like a pit bull! The bass was deep, punchy, and tactile. Also, I like the form factor of a floor standing speaker. The 210RT's were very loud. There was no way to directly compare the 210RT to the 212HT LP due the the 212's being run with MBM's and subs.

That being said-
Jeff had very good things to say about the 212HT for sheer clarity at high spl. He also mentioned that the 212's would need to be run with subs.

The common theme (as others with much more experience have mentioned) would be to go 210RT for music and crossed over for movies and 212 if your primary interests are movies/media/games. That doesn't mean the 212HT won't sound good for music, they'll just need to be crossed over to subs.

Hope this helps and nice to talk to you.

Do the 212HTs require separate stands? If so, then 210RTs may be better both from financial and spec perspective. Besides the sensitivity, is there a reason to choose one over the other leaving aside any stands required for 212s?

Any inputs from people who have heard both?

Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks for your time.
If you want to save money on stands, you can go with cinder blocks from Home Depot with sheet of velvet wrapped around them. This costs nothing, and works as well as any stand. It might not look first class, but it's plenty good for behind an AT screen.

You can even run the 210's FR with subs too. I mean we have guys in here doing that with their 215's..
