It's even better than my M80s. I think Axiom changed he finish to give it more "grain". The finish is not flat, it's raised a bit, and you can feel the grooves where the "grain" is.

Come on May 31st!

Will this need to be tilted or put on some form of stand? My VP150 sits right on top of my entertainment center and is perfectly aligned.

I am glad you like it Steve. I am anxiously waiting mine to arrive. I also have to say that I have been extremely impressed with my dealings with Axiom. With all the people who talk about being fanboys of particular products I guess I would have to be one, but I only got to be one because of how the speakers sound, (great to me) the build quality, and mostly how I have been treated by the entire axiom company. Customer service treats you as a person and having Alan answer questions on the message board shows they just don't sell speakers, they also care about what they are doing. When I first came across this site years ago I was so nervous about ordering. I never trusted doing anything over the internet, but then having the 30 day trial is what allowed me to pull the trigger. I have since been a very proud owner of axiom. WOW. I sound like a commercial. Anyway can't wait for my new center!

Fantastic looking setup Steve. Just looking at you VP180 makes me feel it will keep up with the M80 much better. Since I’ve owned mine I’ve always felt the M80 needed a comparable center to match their ability so I’m glad Axiom is making this now.

I’m looking forward to your impressions and those of others. I’ve generally preferred the dispersion of a horizontal center for movies but felt nothing else in the Axiom lineup could really keep pace with my M80s than another M80.

Since the talk of this started I’ve been considering trying dual M80s one above (horizontal) and one below (vertical) as a center channel for movies, switching back to the single vertical center for music unless it turns out I like the VP180 for music too though I’m predisposed to believe I won’t.

Cheers,
Dean

I wish I had room for one.

I will admit to feeling like my 150 is the weak link in my system.

Jeez, Mark. You're the worst fanboy I've ever seen.

Yeah, we're going to have to take away your fanboy card, as well as give you a 4000 post demerit.

That's a shame...especially since you have the perfect room to show off your audio system... \:D
