im sure the twin EP-800's helped keep everyones attention a bit eh?

I'm REALLY thinking about another ep-600, have been for a while but need to wait for the rear projection DLP to decide to die, before i have the room....

Just received the new VP180....1 word Amazing.
Not to sound too hyperbolic, but it replaced a vp100 and I can't stop listenting to this beast.

Yes Steve as Dakkon points out... as brilliant as I'm sure your VP180 is and all, I'm thinkng those twin 800's (standing around hiding amongst your other speakers about as well as a couple of elephants tryng to hide themselves in a field of pink flamingo's) probably put their stamp of charisma on the room shaking part of the demo. wink

Had you been looking at my eyes that day I was over you would have seen that same look of amazement!!! shocked

I read through the VP180 manual/brochure (very nice btw) and noticed a FR graph. Can anyone tell me if that is the graph for the VP180 or M80?

Hi htnut,

So far as I know, it's the graph for the VP180, measured in Axiom's own large anechoic chamber. The latter is a duplicate of the anechoic chamber at the acoustics division of the National Research Council, where Ian did much of the early R & D on Axiom's speakers back in the 1980s.

When I was over at the plant a while ago doing listening tests on the VP180 and other v3 models, there were tweaks made in the crossovers (based on the results of blind listening tests), then the speakers would be measured in the anechoic chamber, and another round of listening tests would be done. So there were lots of curves run by both Andrew, Ian and Debbie.

Regards,
Alan

Thanks Alan, it was so flat I thought it was the v3 M80, they really do look (and sound) very similar.
