Brent said that they are EXPECTING to ship the first VP180s around Tuesday or Wednesday (8th or 9th) but if I wanted the bi-amping option it would delay one extra week(ie 15th).

Bruno, skip the bi-wiring terminals, which make no audibly significant electrical difference. If you want to keep alive the possibility of later selling it(as has been mentioned)to some deluded soul who thinks that bi-wiring is magical, then wait the extra time.

I figured I would throw in my opinion on the current VP-180 "situation".

When I first read about the center channel, I was PUMPED. I was in the middle of doing some upgrading and decided that I would set aside some of my $$ for this sucker. It is a good thing that the information "leaked" because I would have spent my whole budget and wouldn't be able to get one of these in the next month or so.

I have been dealing with Axiom for over six years after I purchased my first system blindly and have been treated like royalty the whole time. Recently I was torn between which type of inwall speaker to get and I had convinced myself I needed two pairs of M22's. When I talked to Brent he talked me out of getting two pairs and I just went with one pair of M22's and one pair of M2's. That is the kind of service that keeps me loyal to this company.

When I called an inquired about the VP180, I was told it should be ready to ship around the 5/31. We shouldn't be getting upset over a minor delay in shipping of a new product. I am just pumped to be getting one of these in the next month! \:\)

Have a great day!

I don't think anyone was upset about the delay itself, just that people weren't notified about it. Having said that, we were notified with the phone call just a day after they were supposed to ship so once again they were on top of it. I'll probably call back to tell them I don't care about the bi-wire option so I can get my new toy!

I know a lot of you are very excited (and should be), but Axiom never did say you would have the speaker on the 31st. To be fair, I waited almost 5 months for mine, and I think another week or two of waiting (just to make sure everything is perfect) is really not too much to ask. It's just my opinion however, and I know a lot of you guys are chomping at the bit. Just hang in there, it will be worth the wait.

So now that you have had yours for a while how much of a difference have you noticed between it and the 150?

It's a night and day difference. The 180 blends in far better with the M80s than the 150 ever could. I also have the 180 turned down about 1.5db from my mains, whereas I needed to turn the 150 up about 1.5db. It's a much fuller sound.
