If you were starting over again and were deciding between 60's or 80's and their matching center channels, which would you choose?



M60 VP160 vs M80 VP180
Only one choice allowed

I'd still go with the M80s. Still interested in trying a VP180 or two, but it would be nice to see comparisons to the VP160 just for the sake of conversation. I think my plan is still to go with two VP180s: one above the screen, one below. JC is an inspiration.

2 180's? You,sir, are an embarrassment of riches! But I guess I'll let you vote twice then.

Ha ha. I don't have the money for them at this point. I keep sidetracking myself with other stuff, and the holidays haven't helped. After the new year, though, I need to be stingy and get the funds together for new Axiom gear and then for a new display!

you don't have the M60/vp180 option. This is what i have, and would probably do it again. I might upgrade to M80's, not sure though i am pretty happy with my m60's.

Dakkon,
I was trying to keep it simple, but I should have included it.

I think if you want a accurate poll, the m60/180 option should be there.. Only because quite a few of us upgraded from the 150->180 when they came out, and are quite happy with the 180/60 combo.

Changing your poll is up to you, i am not putting your poll down please don't take it as such. However, your primary question was what center will go with the 60's and 80's. So all of the available combos should be present in your poll. I don't think anyone has a VP160 at the moment, so no one would be able to comment on that combination.


BTW writing a poll/survey is a real pain in the butt, because there is ALWAYS something wrong with what ever you do... I deal with fixing polls/surveys every semester, so again please don't take it personal.

I have M60 Tis and am wanting to upgrade my VP150 to either a VP160 or VP180.

As tempting as the VP160 might be, I'm leaning towards the VP180 because of it's "lower profile" design. I think I can incorporate it's width better than the height of the VP160.

Plus it'll "future-proof a bit if I ever upgrade to M80 V3s.
