Maybe I'll have a VP180 above the screen, a VP180 below the screen, and a VP160 in the middle of the screen, to really anchor the dialogue.

We're targeting January 25th for shipping them out, and preorders (including custom finishes) by Tuesday, so they would be able to ship on the 25th as well. Great to get everyone's feedback - thank you!

Very good timing.
Now I need to decide if I want the VP180 or VP160 to go with my M80. Will it be a big difference between the 2?

Note, that as announced in the newsletter today, the pre-order price will be $460 rather than $570 until January 5th.

As to the specs, the weight is shown as precisely the same 21.591kg as the M60, which is unlikely because of the different enclosure, so this might not actually be a current measurement.

It would also be interesting to have the crossover frequencies, and comments from Ian, Alan or Andrew on the history of the design process.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

Not that I can afford it right now, but I'm asking for others that might be interested.

Can a pre-pay be done for the in-cabinet VP160 model now, then wait for it? (I'm assuming that there will be an in-cabinet model.)

@ JohnK, thanks for the sharp eye! I've updated the VP160 weight:

Weight (lbs) each 43.2 lbs
Weight (kg) each 19.59 kg

@CatBrat: good question and the answer is yes, you can prepay for the VP160 in-cabinet version now as well as the regular version.
