Dang, I wish I wasn't born a pessimist! So before I say the ugly little comical thing I was going to say right off the bat is, "This speaker looks like it's going to sound really good."

Now for the ugly little comical thing. "I like to run my speakers without the grills on them. So far, my cat hasn't punished one of the speakers with her claws, etc. (If that happens, I'll just pay to have it replaced). But she definitely can't resist sticking her paws into smallish looking holes. Those port holes will definitely be a cat paw poker attraction." Oh, well. ::ducks and runs the other way::

Well, for the number of times Ray has said "Sell the Wife", I'll just throw "Get rid of the Cat" out there.

Thanks for sharing, Amie. Have listening tests already been done, and if this is the final prototype, is is possible to share measurements (size, not FR!)?

I want something that can eat my VP150, but maybe not swallow it whole. This might be exactly right! smile

this talk reminds me of the fact that i've never been able to find a good explanation about why my M80's cabinets vibrate, but still i can't hear any problem with sound quality even when the sound levels are high.

does anyone have the answer to that?

I'm just the picture transfer girl today, Mark - I'll leave it for the boys to weigh in with measurements (but not likely until tomorrow because everyone is in transit somewhere today it seems!)

Next pic with the VP180 is ready:

I thought the point was to silence the rabble clamoring for a W-T/M-W configuration regardless of how it might sound. I don't remember anybody saying the VP180 doesn't "match the M60's" well.

I'm going to wait until Mark buys one and reviews it. Then, I'm going to besmirch his credibility due to his square room. After that, I'll probably patiently read a whole boatload of VP150 bashing, much of it from people who've never heard one.

Yeah, I'm grumpy today. Sorry.

But also funny. smile

Looking at the two together, I might actually do better with a VP180 in that it sits a little lower. Might be nmore difficult to get past the CFO though.

Either way, it's great to have options!

And Amie, when someone has a chance to get measurements, make sure it's in inches and not that Anti-American Socialist Commie Metric stuff. grin

Tom, I guess I'm right there with 'ya buddy.

Beer?

Nope.

I WILL, however accept something akin to:

"This speaker measure 8.2 pucks high, 9.9 pucks deep and 17.4 pucks wide. It will fit on a standard shelf that measures 11 by 21 Timmies".
