My plan is to purchase the M60 and VP100 first, then QS8s and Sub.
Han, don't forget that the fine folks from Axiom will give you an additional 5% off of your purchase if you buy 5 or more items (i.e. 2 mains, 2 surrounds + 1 center) at one time.
5% *may* not seem much but if you decide to go with the 10% off for Factory Outlet and an addition 5% for the purchase of 5 items (or more), that 15% total discount *might* be a deciding factor between the VP100 and the VP150!
But don't me influence you in any way.
