I took advantage of the gift card to solve my issue of missing decent speakers in the TV room since I moved everything to the HT room. Some M3s are on the way.
Of course thier marketing ploy worked and I bought an extra item as I couldn't pass up the VP180 for $579 in the refurb store. It doesn't match my colors but for that price I don't care. It's dark in the HT room anyways.
The refurb price was cheaper than a trade-up so the VP150 will be re-joining the TV again.
