I am kind of wondering why Axiom didn't make this 10 years ago when the rest of the speaker line up was first brought out. It seems like a no brainer(20/20 hindsight and all that) to have made it specifically to go with the floorstanders, while the VP150/VP100 are a near perfect match for the bookshelf speakers, in particular the M2/M22.


Most good ideas seem bizarre when first suggested but obvious in hindsight ;\)

The system looks great; it's funny how the VP180 doesn't really seem that big once you put it together with screen & mains.

Enjoy !

Steve, is that a custom finish or the stock black oak?

Steve, are those Auralex Mopads under your 180? Did you use them before the 180? Any before and after feedback...Thanks

Hi Steve,

I'm really pleased you are as excited ("giddy" even) with the new VP180 as I was after the blind listening tests and the curtain was pulled back. I was absolutely thrilled that Axiom now has a no-compromise truly excellent center channel speaker.

You are correct: the VP180 sounds almost exactly like a the vertical M80. I wrote down on the blind rating sheet: "Not exactly alike in sound quality but similarly excellent."

Cheers,
Alan

Oops! Looks like the labels are already printed, which may mean the "v3" designation stays.

In another thread, I posted that we'd dropped the "v3" designation because the VP180 is a new model. It isn't a variant of an earlier version.

Regards,
Alan
