Spoke to Brent this morning and he states that the vp150 would not pair well with the vp180 because the vp180 would just blow away the vp150 volume wise and that the vp180 can stand on its own and does not need a companion, so it seems like the best option will be to wait until June 1st and preorder is over and then order the vp180 on the trade up program.
I think I will mount the plasma tv on the wall and then place the vp180 on the tv table I have, or I could order the vp180 stand on preorder if it seems like a dedicated stand would be a better option.
This is all very exciting! Especially with the big green light from Steve, I feel confident this will put my system into a further, and probably final, level of refinement, for the foreseeable future (i.e., ultimate nirvana unless I should unexpectedly become a billionaire). I've been thinking so much lately about how I could possibly improve the center channel and this seems like it will resolve my only remaining issue, cool beans!
