I'm trying to decide between the vp100 and 150. I'll be using the M60's and QS-8's in a 5:1 system. Suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

My recommendation would depend on the size of the room, and distance from seating area to the center channel. Small to medium sized room, thus relatively close to center channel, the 100 is a good choice. Larger room, more distance from the center, wider dispersion needed, the 150 is optimal.

If price isn't a big issue with you, I would go with the 150 because it may give you more flexibility as your situation changes.

Get the VP150. You won't regret it.

I have the 100 and love it. I think it does a very commendable job in my 18 X 12 room (open on one side). Have I thought about upgrading? Sure. More is always better, right? From what I hear, the 150 is a better speaker in every respect than the 100. But if cash is an issue, youmay find, like I did, that the 100 will suit you fine. Of course, as everyone else has mentioned, we'll need some more info regarding your layout.

Suggestion... either center channel speaker will be a great choice. Now, go for the gold and get the ep500!

A great way to get to know the new neighbors.

There goes the neighborhood!!!

p.s. congrats on the new digs

You could try 2 M3's in a side by side or over/under tv. Might be a real good listen!
