Rick,

You are not alone, mine acts up quite often. In fact, more and more . . .

Yesterday I retired and the week leading up to that day was hectic to say the least. Well today I got to sit down finally and do critical listening. It also coincided with the arrival of Tom Petty's new Mojo BD. I ran a Calbration using AIX disc and set the x-overs all the same across the front with the ICBM.

I threw the Mojo in the Oppo SE ...WOW! I don't possess a lot of audiophile speak but will say this, the front-stage just sounds complete, full, dynamic. I can't believe how smooth the sound I am hearing is. It is all so even, buttery smooth but crystal clear at the same time if that make any sense.

I have been almost exclusively a 2 channel guy with my multichannel music, the VP150 I found was adequate for movies but somewhat not a match for the M80s so its been 2 channel. But not anymore! I am beyond myself to how good my setup sounds with the VP180. I am itching to try some of my CD's now with some Pro Logic 11x or Neo: 6.

The VP180 does play nice with the M80tis I have now, but I ordered the M80 V3s last night so I cant wait to incorporate those into my system. I am stoked for sure grin

By the way the new Tom Petty Mojo BD is great too!

You don't have to answer this if it's too personal, but can I ask how much they gave you for a trade-in on your Ti's?

Or did you even trade them in?

Micah,

1) Don't ever ask a woman her age
2) Don't ever ask a man's salary
3) Don't ever ask anyone their deal that was made... It's their deal, not yours.

PS - The VP180 is stunning. Buy it, trust me.

I still have them and don't know exactly what I will do with them when the V3s get here. Thought of selling them but my son has been eyeballin them for a while so they may go that direction...for a small fee ;), bidness is bidness as they say!
