Woohoo! A second pair of QS8s and now the VP180 to replace my VP150. I love it!

Still need to figure out what to do with the VP150...

Your VP150 will make a fine start for the NEXT Axiom system.

Congrats on the VP180 - I'm VERY eager to hear your assessment.

Yea, that is what people keep saying... Of course it means buying more.... My wife likes the HTIB stuff we have in our living room, but maybe a small 5.1 system in the new family room in the basement someday will have some M22s and QS4s, but it seems like a waste with the home theater right next door.

I haven't gotten my shipping email yet, but that is OK. My theater isn't ready for it yet anyway. It will be pretty impressive since it will be bigger than my M60 fronts, but I have heard that it is VERY impressive.

Hi,
The Axiom VP180 complements very well the Axiom M60. I auditioned an identical set-up at a friend's home theatre . . . very impressive ! He is found of it and all his guests are blwon away.

When I get my theater done, I will do a side by side comparison of the VP150 and VP180. I know that the VP180 will be great, but it will still be interesting to see what happens when going from the VP150 I am used to, putting it into an acoustically treated room (should hear an improvement) and then putting the big boy (I mean the VP180) into the same treated room and hear how much better it is.

Your review will be flawed as you already think the VP180 is better than the 150 wink

Believe me, once you get used to hearing a full range speaker like the VP180, especially in the center channel position, you will NEVER go back to a smaller speaker again.

LOL. Smaller speaker...

The VP150 was the biggest that Axiom offered up until a few months ago.

No, seriously though, I agree, but I will try not to taint my review.

Although, I am also wondering now if I should wire my VP150 in with my VP180 for even more sound of it that will just be bad... I will have an AT screen, so the speakers will be behind it.
