I think I'm going to order a VP160. And I'm not going to ask Joyce. I'm just going to do it. Because I'm the man, dammit. (I'm peeing myself just a little bit because I'm nervous of the ramifications).

So, I bought an LG 55" last Fall that's sitting on a couple of boxes to get it up higher than the VP150 I currently have. I'll plan on wall mounting the LG if when I buy the 160. Here's a quick snapshot (I'll take a nice one when the setup is complete):



So, the question: Do I go with the Mansfield Beech (an extra $50) to match my existing speakers (and to some degree, the floors, etc) or do I go with black so it doesn't stand out as much (picking up on the black on the TV Stand and the black frame of the TV)?
Pick My VP160 Color!
Only one choice allowed

I have her email address. What's it worth to you? Shipping would be less if you order and pay for one for me, too!

If my best efforts could ever approach your "quick snapshot," I would be ecstatic.

HEY! Bob was the only one that responded, and the poll shows only one vote- for the third choice!

I WOULD have bought you one as hush money, Bob, but now I'm just going to change her e-mail address. And phone number. And house address.

I voted for black. It doesn't match anything but that is part of being a man. If you are going to buy speakers behind Joyce's back, they should also clash.

P.S.
Your shipping would be even cheaper if you send it to me and I deliver it to Bob who promises to deliver it to you.

Go for the color coordination. Your wife will appreciate it, if she notices the difference.

Wife: The TV looks different, honey.
MSJ : Well, that's the new flat screen, dear. It makes everything look better, doncha think?
Wife: Looks bigger.
MSJ : Looks better.
Wife: Yes, yes it does.

or if you get it in black:

Wife: What's that?!?
MSJ : What's what, dear?
Wife: Don't mess with me Mark! What's that giant, grotesque thing under the TV?!?
MSJ : Well dear, that's the new Center Channel speaker we needed.
Wife: Enjoy it Mark, from the couch ... the couch on which you will be sleeping alone, with the dog, with that grotesque thing in the room, with you, alone. I hope you're happy. [Crying]

or if you get it in black:

MSJ: Put down the hockey stick honey, please!!

or if in Mansfield Beech:

Wife: Something looks different.
MSJ : I shaved.
Wife: No, I mean the TV.
MSJ : Well honey, I got the new Axiom center channel.
Wife: Oh, and the color matches the floor and the wall unit.
MSJ : Yes, yes it does.
Wife: I'm the luckiest gal in the world!
