Okay, I am a proud owner of M60,VP150 and the QSes. In 6 days, my 30-day home trial will end. I'm thinking as I keep reading about the virtues of M80, may be I should replace my M60s and VP150 with M80s and VP180 respectively?

I'm more than happy with what I've got now but I know that I will upgrade down the road anyway. Should I do it now? If you were me, would you go for it?

All advice are welcome :-) Time is of the essence here because the trial period is expiring soon.

I would go for it, but I'm a little obsessed. Ha ha. Here's hoping you get feedback from more level-headed people.

Go for it if you wish, however, in my opinion, if you are looking for significant improvement in sound and still save some money, I believe most would agree that going from a VP150 to a VP180 will be a significantly greater upgrade than going from an M60 to an M80.

thanks, casey.

Yes, that's what I'm looking for: significant improvement in sound.

So, you think a replacement of the centre channel speaker (from 150 to 180) will do it?

I agree with Casey the VP150 to VP180 will give you the most improvement. The M60 to M80 will be incremental probably best done only if you will always be wondering “what if” or you like music like GOA or other forms of EBM with a rapid bass beat where the M80s really shine.

Hey grunt,

Forgive my ignorance. What do GOA and EBM stand for?

GOA actually stands for GOA:

EBM stands for Electronic Body Music:

If you are already wondering, and considering upgrading, you'll never get the thought out of your head till you do, but then it will be too late to recoup some of your upgrade costs.

Just do it and be done with it, lick you financial wounds later.

Oh, okay. Thanks.

I do like many types of music but I don't think I have listened to GOA and EBM. I'm sure I must have heard these in passing.
