Congrats on the new addition to the family. Play something your really familiar with to see how much of a difference the 180 makes.

Very nice Griffith. I found anything with gunshots really emphasized the differences the VP180 brings over the 150.

Hi Jakewash,
"Open Range" is the ultimate gunshot demo material. I wish that it will come to Blu-ray with Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD Master Audio but then again, it is difficult imagining the gunshot getting better than it is now! What is your choice for the ultimate ?

Don't know the ultimate, I found the gunshots in U-571 had much better impact with the VP180 than the M2 or VP150 I tried. I would think Avatar would be a good one for that as well. The shots really hit with a pound even with the VP150.

JC, that shootout scene in 'Open Range' is by far my favorite of any shootout scenes of any movie I've personally seen. Good call!

Yeah, I still need to check that one out myself. Is the movie itself any good?
