wood flooring over slab foundation


What would you recommend for a wood flooring over a slab foundation. We are interested in using solid, engineer or laminate. What manufactures/brands are would you consider?

Need more info on the slab. Where are you? Possible groundwater infiltration (basement)?

Kahrs is the best engineered wood in the world IMHO.

But there are many other manufacturers you may like.
It needs to be floated over a 6 mil poly.
