RE: Another floor question

If your primary concern is sonics, there's not all that much difference between hardwood floors and vinyl. Both are quite reflective as compared to, say, carpet, and can assist in promoting comb filtering. If it were my audio room, and regardless of the choice between wood or vinyl floors, I'd certainly plan on using area rugs at the points of first reflection at the very least. Better yet, use an area rug that covers the entire listening area between the listening position and the speakers. Actually, from a sonic standpoint, I'd use carpet, but that's just me. If, however, your interest is limited to a floor type vs cost decision, that is not really an audio decision and then its buyer's choice.
