I guess I can still save for M80s in my main home theater, then see about the new speakers for a 2.1 system. Hmmm.

Did someone say audiopyle? Are they serialized? The first pair should be reserved for Bbigwyres; maybe with a commemorative roll of duct tape.

JC, you say there's no matching center or surrounds at this point, but could I use more of the new flagship as the center and surrounds? Have any of the listening tests utilized this configuration?

Since they are a floorstander, I'm thinking they will dwarf the M80's size wise (taller/wider). Since they are designed to be the main speakers, I'm sure there would be no problems using the same speaker as the centre and surrounds in a full fledged 5 or 7 speaker home theater setup. You will just need the real estate and perhaps a proper amplifier to power them all...

Because there are drivers on the front and the rear of the new speaker they are certainly best suited to the front mains. The VP180 would be the most appropriate centre channel. In order to get the kind of distinct control we needed over the rear driver information they do require 4 channels of amplification for the pair. We will be addressing this need also. It is certainly shaping up to be a big year for new products!

i guess Ian just explained what the **** ***** is, maybe "freaking amps"?

Ian, will you be implementing a similar cross over design as the one James is using, an outboard DSP cross over, so that any brand of amp can be used to power the new speakers? If i need to wait until next month for my answer, i can understand that and will wait.

I'll answer part of your question on Ian's behalf:
Yes, any amp(s) can be used. You will need 4 channels that have identical gain, preferably identical amplifiers. It's this requirement that is part of the "magic" that's going on here. wink
