Looks like a pre-release VP-160, no?

Oooooo.... Yeah... It looked like a center channel by the angled back, but it didn't look anything like the VP180 that I got a couple of months ago. Never even thought about the 160.

Curious as to how close is the timbre match between the VP160 and M80s hence, the flow of and accuracy and smoothness of the sound moving from L>R and R>L soundstage? Although, for me, because of the difference in size and weight, the VP160 is more practical for placement, however, I am still waffling between this and the 180.
