There are many stands that you can use to mount the 170s at the proper height. The 170 were the same price as the 200 for a while. I see they are $50 more now. Plus about $50 for stands that will make the 170s about $100 more. But if you are spending $2000 and will be listening to music 40% of the time I encourage you to get the 170s. They are superior to the 200s in every way. They will match the sound of the 340s better, better bass, larger soundstage, better dynamics, play louder and can handle more power.
The 200s are fine speakers and if wall mounting is important to you then get them. But if you want the best speaker, especially for music, the 170s are worth the extra money.
