    Choose whichever one you like best... :)

    A HT-room should be damped well, but not overdamped. Both a wooden floor with a rug would be fine, as well as carpet.

    Agree with garmtz; and if there is no carpet in the area where the speakers are standing and they need to be on spikes use a marble slab underneath to prevent the floor from getting damaged.

    My general understanding is that wood floors could vibrate with the sound creating unwanted noise.
    The best floor is concrete with a carpet on.

    Stuart,
    Thats not the case. Not much time to expand so I'll try and cover this later.

    Regards

    I think a wooden floor sounds more "alive" than a concrete one, which can sometimes be beneficial. Also, with LFE, it gives you those nice vibrations/kicks... :)
