Good day everyone

I picked up my VP180 from the plant on Saturday and got it hooked up this morning. I watched Star Trek and some of the Eagles.

So far I can say this is one serious speaker.

It's like having an M80 sideways with the same excellent sound.

Very smooth and clean and almost perfect transition from the M80's to the VP150. Still playing around with volume settings but far the biggest imporvment is in lower male voices sound much more natural.

I still like the VP150, but this speaker was a real requirment for my room!

Blast, Mel made the joke better than I did. I really do like the VP180 stand, though.

Wow amazing room. Do the speakers sound a little too warm with that fireplace at the front? wink

Thanks eveyone, I would love to get a 2nd EP500, if only for cosmetic reasons, but my wife won't let me, too expensive.

Maybe I should call Noreen and ask if I could get an EP500 shell, with no driver or amp and put it where the stove is (just to balance the room).

That stove really doesn't belong there, but the room is in the basment and can get a bit of a chill in the winter, the stove (electric) takes the edge off.

I did however notice a marked improvement in sound after putting up the sound panels onthe walls and ceiling. I never thought the M80's were harsh, but the panels did warm up the sound a bit and really helps with imaging. When listening to music, by eyes and ears are telling me my center channel is on, even when I know it isn't. I find my self walking up to the center and listening, and on some occasions even unplugging it.

Room is 16 x 23 x 9.

Screen is 137" in 16x9

Audio Trak 6 ch amp is bridged into 3ch and rated at 4ohm stable at 300 wpc for L C R speakers.

I can get 105 db on the SPL meter with out the amp breaking a sweat. However my ears are a different story.

We are in a 3.5 year old custom build house. When I designed the floorplan for the house, I started with this room first, then designed the rest of the house around it. Kids bedrooms are on the toher side of the house.

Also room has no windows and the curtain at the back of the room hides a door to the garage / shop.

If any of you guys are ever in the London area, give me a shout, and stop buy for a listen.

I was just thinking that very thing! Should be in London in a couple of weeks. I really wanted to hear the VP180 at the get together, but there really was no opportunity.
