I'm having a hard time picking which speakers to get. I haven't heard neither speaker but read good reviews on both pair. I have a Onkyo TX-NR 906B receiver to run a good pair of speakers. I also will be buying a HSU VTF-3 MK3 Subwoofer for the sub. I found a store that carries the RBH MC 6 speakers but I can't audition them. ( They say there in a warehouse ). And Audio Advisors in my area sells the B&W 685. My room size is 20X16 with 9 ' to 12 ' ceiling because its vaulted. Which one would you choose ?

I just reviewed the 685 speakers and they are awsome. I went to audio advisors in west palm beach florida and they helped me with all my questions. The image detail was really awsome. I heard the female vocals in the left- middle, between the speakers . I heard the male vocals in the right side but in the middle also , between the two speakers. The piano was behind the vocals as well as the bass guitar. I heard everything separate but couldn't tell if they were coming from the speakers. And this was only with the pair of B&W 685 speakers. No center channel or surround speakers. They have speakers on sale for ?? 100 cheaper than the original price. I'm going to pick them up on Friday.

Good choice! I love my 685's! But if you think they image good, try something from the 800 series, hehe.
They're much more "3D" than the 600 series (tonally they're very similar though). I just picked up the 804S after a year with the 600 series and couldn't be happier with either of them.
