To say "don't waste your money on floorstanders" (or something like that), is a rather broad statement. Now, I am not saying that I do not necessarily disagree with you, but what if that is what he wants? Does that make everyone else wrong for having floorstanders? There is more to a tower than just full full range of sound/LF's.
I completely agree. Mayhem, you said most posts would be useless because they are subjective opinions, but then you state not to bother with floor standers? That's a subjective opinion right there buddy.
By the way, no offense man. I was just making an observation, and I agree with everything else you said except what I mentioned above.
+1 on the Salk SongTower system. Also check out:
Era and Usher (good recommendations mziegler)
As always, audition before you buy. If going B&M, insist on an in-home weekend audition of your final candidate(s) to ensure you still like them in your room, on your gear. In the case of Internet Direct (Ascend Acoustics, Salk, The Audio Insider, etc), they offer a 30 day in-home trial period. If you don't like them, send them back for a full refund.
