Since I upgraded from a VP100 to a VP160 last week, my normally dormant brain awoke & began considering a surround speaker upgrade using the Trade Up feature here.

I called Axiom to see if I could use my present QS4s plus my now unused VP100 to acquire some QS8s. But alas, only the QS4s were eligible for trade in - sniff!

For me the price differential between the 4s & 8s just wasn't worth the small performance gain. So now my pristine VP100 sits abandoned but safely stored in my garage...

I wonder how the 100 would do as a height speaker?

Hmmmm, I hadn't thought of that & it probably would work just fine; however, I don't think that I'm really sold on more than a 5.2 system in my medium size room...

If I could go back, I would have gone 9.1 or even 11.1 with small speakers in a small purpose built room, not unlike the one we're finishing up.
I would have taken the difference in funds and put it into a more capable receiver and would probably have room in that same budget for a second matching ($500) sub.
I'd still be watching a TV though at a much closer viewing distance though, I'm not sure I can go back...

I wish I could rephrase the quote above.
I have no interest in going smaller now and every interest in building a larger room/larger dedicated theater as soon as time and money will allow.
