Kmcg, I am glad to hear you are enjoying the Raindance shower heads. A fixed wall mount showerhead sounds like agood option for a 2nd head if I don't go grazy with a ceiling mounted rain shower head.
I've been wrestling with this question, and my husband - like yours - thinks we need just the handshower on the bar. Having recently stayed in a lovely hotel with a ceiling-mount rainshower plus the wallbar set, I can definitely see the allure. This rainshower was quite gentle, but felt good! The handshower was more versatile. I used both. Despite how nice the rainshower was, I decided not to install one in my new shower. I'm going with the handheld on a bar (also Hansgrohe) and a fixed wall-mount showerhead. A 6" Raindance showerhead from Hansgrohe can be about $110, plus you spend a bit more getting the 2-function valve and trim. For that money, it seems like a reasonable investment for resale, and added options for our showers. I may be wrong, but I feel like we can have a similar feel with the showerhead coming out of the wall as when it comes out of the ceiling.
This aesthetically pleasing Raindance Shower Head by Hansgrohe is the ultimate addition to any shower. The Raindance Downpour Air Shower Head comes complete with 107 clog-free spray channels, air injection technology, and an innovative cleaning system. The Raindance Downpour Air Shower Head is the perfect synergy of style and functionality.
