Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I feel it is justified. When I reviewed the speakers on page 7, I only had them a couple of days. Now that I have had a couple of months to listen to them, I have to change one of my reviews...

I did not give the VP150 the justice it deserves. There, I said it, plain an simple. About a month ago I decided to throw the Audessey settings out the window and just listen to the system with no equalization. Immediately, I noticed an fuller sound all around, and actually had to turn the volume down 3-4 db from my normal listening volume. Where as before I had to crank the center up 3db to hear the vocals, I actually now have to have it about 1db lower than the mains.

After a couple of weeks of tweaking, I have found manual settings that I like the best. It's a typical bell curve, albeit slight (+1.5db on the high and low frequency ends, -1.5db in the center frequency... Except for the center which is flat in the center frequency).

The vocals are now crisp and clear, and the whole system blends beautifully together! I can hear nuances in the vocals that I could not hear before (like when the singer stops to inhale, or licks their lips... you really can hear everything).

I am extremely happy with the VP150, and just wanted to say I withdraw my prior rating of a 7/10, and move it up to a 9/10. It's an excellent speaker.

Here I am digging up one from the grave again...

We've had the system for about 9 months now, and I just cannot say enough great things about the speakers, and the company. As some of you know, I've been on the road the last couple of months for work, and I only get to go home to see my family every other weekend. When I do get to go home, one of the first things my oldest boy (Stevie, who's 4 1/2) asks is for all of us to go to the basement to listen to music. We spend hours playing music, dancing together, and rolling around on the floor. Needless to say, I think that the speakers we purchased have been one of the best purchases I've ever made. Our time together (although short now) is filled with great music, great times, and more and more memories as time goes on.

I had mentioned my interest in the new EP800s to my wife several months ago, sort of off the cuff, just to see what her reaction would be. I was kind of surprised when I found her reaction to be positive to the idea. Unfortunately, I did not have access to the owners club, so pre-purchase was not an option.

After several e-mail, phone calls, and months of waiting, I finally got my invite a couple of days ago. I immediately went to the EP800 screen to see if pre-purchase was still an option. Unfortunately, I was about a month too late... After a couple of e-mails to Axiom, including a response from the man himself, Axiom agreed to allow me to trade in my two EP500s as credit towards two new EP800s. After speaking with my wife (for final approval), we agreed to the deal! So now I'm chomping at the bit for their release too!

So, long story short, again I am very grateful to have such a wondeful wife, speakers from such a wonderful company, and a great group of online friends as well.

Steve

Another 12 or so years there will be loud music played, dancing and rolling around on the floor ... the only difference is that you'll not be invited Steve, and may even be shunned as a total and clueless stranger. "What I'd really like, Dad, is to borrow the car keys. See you later, can I have them please?" \:\)


Congrats on the new 800's and remember to lift with your knees and not with your back on those critters. ;\)

Awesome Steve, fantastic! (and congrats on finally getting the elusive access into the owner's club). I guess I need to start beating that drum again too.
