From the reviews of the M80v2/VP180 combos out there (I can just about guarantee that Steve and Rick don't have v3 M80s), I think it would probably be fine. However, you're more sensitive than most about these sorts of things.

As for the Ninja, his tests were performed on M80tis.

And there was a similar sturm und drang about the v2s as well.

I'm using a new VP150, purchased a month or two ago, it should have the V3 components and to me it blends very good with the older tis.

So, I ordered my M80's and I'm glad I did because if I was waiting for an upgrade, I would have been waiting until now AFAIK.

Long story short- I bet if you inquired as I did, Axiom most likely would have told you. There's culpability on the end users behalf also.


Fair enough, but there will be no repeat business from this end user.
Sorry.

Tony, we're not reps of the company.

If you're dissatisfied, by all means call the company tomorrow. My opinion doesn't mean sh*t around here, so don't take it like I'm speaking for them before declaring your dissatisfaction with THEIR service!

You brought your opinion to a public forum, and you got divergent opinions. That doesn't mean anything in the big scheme of things.

I think before you make that statement to us (ie, their fans and customers), you should talk to Axiom. You may be able to come to an accommodation.

I will reread the reviews posted about the VP180 but so far I haven’t read anything very extensive yet. However, I will ask my specific questions in the VP180 thread where it would be more appropriate.

For the record the Ninja reference I made was not about Axioms speakers but about AV123 speakers.

I understand that with change there will always be some consternation. My issue is mostly about the wording of the “v2” vs “v3” review. I’m not a sales person but I imagine the last thing I would do in trying to sell a new product is effectively criticize the owners present choice. There are ways to talk about improvements more subtly while still conveying the same information.

Thanks for the feedback Rick.

My M80s are the v2's and the VP180 blends in very nicely with them. I really do not notice a substantial timbre difference between them. That's not to say however that v2 M80s and v3 M80s sound almost similar on a blind test (I have not heard the v3 M80s, so I don't know).

I'm assuming (or rather, hoping) the opposite would be true as well...that the OLDER VP150(ti version) would also blend well with the new V3s.
