It's not a bad speaker by any means. But I find that I always choose "stereo" mode for music and not a surround mode, because I prefer the vocals going through the M60s.

It certainly could be my room. God knows it's problematic enough in every other way and since the vast majority of users don't have this problem, I'm likely an isolated incident.

I'll have to wait for a VP160 though, since I don't see a VP180 fitting in my environment.

Of course, I could take some measurements, just to know for sure..........................................

This VP180 is one speaker i would love to hear compared to the VP150.
A definite challenge for a blind test setup.

In the end, I really have to say thank you to Axiom, but more specifically Ian in particular. This is merely a modification (moving the sticks as Ian so appropriately stated) of his spectacular M80 design. The speaker is truly a work of art, and blends in seamlessly with the M80s. If I were Ian, I would be so proud right now! I wanted to take a moment to thank Ian for his skills, patience, forsight, and dedication. I really do feel (more than ever) that I am part of a family here.

During our tour wayyyyy back in '04, Ian, Amie and co. offered my pregnant wife food (i think they called it lunch but really it was around tea time late in the afternoon and she had something the size of a Keg meal sandwich and soup).

As any husband knows, you NEVER get between a pregnant woman and food so Axiom answered my prayers that day (my wife could eat and i could chat some more about audio)!

The folks at Axiom are the bomb!

Jeff, since the VP180 is a bit less than 2" taller than the VP150, the tweeter centers would only be a little less than 1" higher. So, if your VP150 height is about perfect now, the VP180 wouldn't be appreciably different, and no tilting or separate stand would be needed.

Mark, you wouldn't necessarily have to limit yourself to the "stereo" mode; simply set the center to "none" in that situation and use a surround mode with the M60s handling the vocals, as you prefer.
