Nice looking setup Jay. It looks like you've got a lot more space for your speakers to "breathe" in this new house of yours.

I ran Audyssey and the VP160 is set up exactly the same as my M80s, LCR is +3.5db and 40hz XO. I ran through some gunshot scenes yesterday afternoon and from what I can remember of the VP180, the VP160 would be it's equal or at least close enough for me.

We watched The Santa Clause 2&3 last night, I sat in my off axis seating position and I occasionaly sat in the sweet spot for a quick/rough comparison, I really couldn't hear any SPL differences and any pans that took place across the front were seemless, WooHoo!.

Ran some music with Dolby PLII(DTS Neo as well, switched back and forth) and I quite like the results. I was never fond of the sound when using PLII with my old centers, a VP100 nor the VP150, so I never ran music with this activated. I was very surprised and happy to listen to music utilizing PLII processing with the VP160 in the mix, vocals sounded like they usually do from the M80s, full, clean and clear, not slightly thin like they did with the VP160's smaller cousins.

I have yet to find a flaw with this speaker, except for not reaching quite as low as the VP180 which is not a big deal smile

I noticed the same thing with my vp180 Jason. Dolpy PLII was not enjoyable with the vp150 because the vocals sounded so much better coming from the m80's. Now with the vp180, it sounds great.
