I was very happy with the fluance XL7F for movies. Of coarse some people enjoy giant 12" subs that shake the house, I don't. Therefore I loved them for movies. But if you are only buying the towers, I can not really comment, since I 've only watched movies with the 5 speaker set up. Although there is an amazon review that says the towers alone are great for movies.
For music, XL7F were great for a lot of the songs I tried. But, sometimes it felt like something was missing. I bought an Energy 8 inch sub and that made a big difference. Music now sounds more defined.
I bought the speakers mainly for movies, but music sounds so great I had to unpack my old cd collection and I 've spent 80% on music and 20% on movies.
