Well this is obviously a scam. Just another site to add to the proceed with caustion list. I have purchased and sold a couple of items on Audiogon but no problems yet.

Okay... It is DONE! Order placed.... Amp + VP150 + Some cables + Axiom Jacket (Yeah! Axioman with super-hearing capabilities +10 ).

I can't wait for the next few paychecks to cover the newly formed hole on my credit card! \:\(

I can't wait to have the second VP150! \:\)

The jacket might come a bit early in the year for Canada... ;\)

Incidentaly, I will tryout that A1400-8 thingy to see if it can really remove groundloop hums from my cable. I am having second thoughts as to if I clicked on the right icon...

PS: I am actually shaking with excitement...

Congrats, Eric.

Do you have terminals for a second centre on the Onkyo or will you just be connecting in parallel to the same terminals?

Now it's going to be a long wait...

For my tests, I was in parallel, but I avoided playing anything very loud.

BTW, once the second center arrives, it will be connected to new amp, not to Onkyo 805 (Alan and JC must be smiling now!)

Congrats Eric. I'm really interested in how dual VP150s will sound with the amp. I heard that setup once and it was excellent which is contrary to all the stuff on lobing etc which I expected. Looking forward to your views.

I would love it if you could tell me if the additional VP150 makes a big difference or not. The $400 or so price tag is not a huge deal in terms of my decision factor. If it sounds nicer, I wouldn't mind getting another one. *BUT* I would have to put them side by side. That probably wouldn't be as good as one on top of the TV and one at the bottom....what do you guys think?

I may seriously pull the trigger on the amp. Like I said, I can never use the power...but still. very very tempting!!

I heard a pair of VP150s, on top and bottom of a 110" diagonal screen and try as I might I couldn't detect the lobing. Instead they did a great job of anchoring the voices to the centre of the screen. Its one of those curious things where a real life application sounds good when the theory says it shouldn't.

First, the dual VP150. The reason why I am going for 2 is that, below the TV is good for TV/movies, but sounds weird for music. On top of the TV (very high nowadays because TVs are BIG), it is better for music, but not good enough and strange for TV/HT.

The dual top/bottom idea is to get back the truly "center" channel (both hotizontal and vertical).

As for the amp. Do not get distracted by the number of watts. The speed and stability makes the A1400 a great amp even if you don't play loud. As I am typing, I cannot vouch apart from theory, but within a week, I will be in a position to concur with John.
