I traded my 150v2 for a 100v3 a year ago as our upstairs cabinet would not allow for the 150. I had the 150 down in the Plex before getting my 180. I think I like the sound of my new 100 over the 150, but then again, I never tried the 100 downstairs.

I have both the 100 and 150, both v2, in the in/on wall variety. I purchased the VP100 first. My impression of it was it's ok, but I always felt something was laking.

I also have 2 pairs of M22's for L/R mains. Click on the link in my signature line to see what I mean.

Music sounded much better in stereo mode. The VP100 just wasn't up to par with the M22's.

Later I replaced the VP100 with a VP150. At first comparison, it seemed that there was a small improvement over the low end. Now, when I A/B switch between stereo and surround when listening to music, the surround sound wins every time. I would not want to go back to the VP100. I think the 150 is a better sonic match with the M22's.

I plan on ordering the VP160, if I have enough money left after expenses this week before the 6th. I'm thinking I'll probably love them better than the VP150, sonic match or not.

Edit: I can always just not eat for the next 2 weeks. I need to lose some weight anyway. Pay bills? Puhfft. Speakers are more important that bills. Right? (Just kidding).

You can call in to pre-order. It's in the Axiom newsletter or in the Axiom Announcements forum.

I've never heard the vp-100. The VP150 is a very good speaker but I always felt that it came up a little short compared to my m80's. This problem is absolutely 100% solved with the vp180.

But only if you have the space, the thing is a beast of a center (in a good way). When I ordered my Axioms I would have loved to get the 180. Problem was there was no way it would fit into our entertainment cabinet.
