I decided to get a set of high power LFR1100 with fully balanced DSP in the end.
Wife CAN NEVER know about this or she got me for life lol
did you get a DSP channel for your vp180?
That is the exact same setup that i've got. Now, you'll need to decide which XLR cables to get..
I wound up going with monoprice cables. I was previously using Kimber kable Hero XLR's.. But decided to go with monoprice cables when i got my LFR's... From an electrical engineering point of view, there is no advantage to the kimber kables over the monoprice. The main difference is the quality of the connectors used.. But, for something that is pretty much static that's a moot point in my book.
Good luck.. Your secret is safe here.. As long as your wife doesn't know your screen name.....
