Talk about torture; just got home from work, and was pleasantly surprised by a large M80 box(vp180 inside) setting in my foyer. I, unfortunately, have a BBQ to get to and will not have time to put it through the paces tonight $?&$@#!!!!

Sorry for the delay, and sorry to hear about your delay as well. Believe it or not, I did hook it up last Saturday, but have had limited time this week to listen carefully. There was an immediate difference I noticed; I could not tell the center was even on it blended so well. Male voices seem more alive, and I am noticing more liveliness in content sent to the cc during movies. I auditioned my system yesterday for a fellow forum dweller, and played a little music for the first time. Equally impressive, however, most of the listening was done in two channel. I sat on my couch to the right of the main LP and immediately noticed wider dispersion from the 180. Now, I was not disappointed with the 150, but the 180 is definitely an improvement. I would also recommend QS8's. Have a great weekend.

I am about to pull the trigger on a VP-180 along with picking up some one year old M80's. Since the new V3 M80'S just came out, should I be worried about the setup not having good balance? I thought about waiting for a little while longer and getting a new pair of M80's, but I would like the save about $500.00 going the used route.

Currently I have a VP-150 and a pair of M60's...

i chose to wait and picked up the VP180v3 with a pair of M80v3 towers and tonight i picked up a pair of QS8 surround speakers. this way i don't have to worry about anything. i've essentially got a 5 channel matched set. i would recommend, if possible, wait and save that extra money and get the matching v3 towers. do you notice how many folks in this forum are kicking themselves for purchasing v2 knowing that the v3 was going to be released. also notice how many folks are interested in trading up from their v2 line to the v3 line to take advantage of the new center and have it match their M towers.

i know it's not easy but i recommend you wait. i did and i'm really happy that i did!

I run a new VP150 and QS4s, they say V2 but as new as they are I'm sure they are V3s, with some M80tis that are over 7 years old. IMO they match well enough I am not looking to up grade to the newer model.

You would do good getting the used M80s and the newer VP180, I assure you.
