WOW! They are beautiful! And glossy!

How high do you need to raise the TV to expose the IR sensor? And, what are the dimensions of the base of the Westinghouse? My first thought was one of the Sanus TV Turntables (one of the two at the bottom of the page) but they only raise the TV 1". I suspect that wouldn't be enough. They probably are too small for the base of your TV, anyway.

The TV27 Black or TV32 Black model might be big enough for the base of your TV, but would still only raise the TV 1" and 1.25" respectively.

VERY nice pictures! Beautiful setup!

If it were me, I'd just rearrange the EC content a bit and put the VP100 on one of the shelves, angled up slightly. It *might* not sound the same, but could present a free and elegant solution.

About 4 inches or so. And the base is 28-5/16"H x 8-7/8"D on stand according to crutchfield.

I have thought of that, but I was informed that it would be best to keep the center channel around the same height as the towers. But if that is what it comes down do that is what I will do.

I would like to raise the tv however.

You can always get an IR repeater. The little tape on bits are only about 1/4 inch tall.

Oh yeah. I even got one that was ethernet controlled for work. Cool stuff. A bit of a pain to program, and def. overkill for you, but there are plain jane repeaters as well.

Hey RawCode,

How do you like the VP100 matched with the M50's? I'm currently planning my center channel swap (from a Paradigm CC-370), and I'm not sure if I want to go VP100 or VP150.

It is seemless when sounds pan from left to right. Vocal clarity is great too. I like it alot. Never heard a vp150 however, but I am happy with this. I bet the VP150 will go alot louder if you need it too.

Pretty speakers indeed! Glad to see another Axiom owner happy with his purchase

Now out of curiosity would this be the same RawCode over at Ars Technica? If so, Hey , if not, disregard the insanity.
