I have m50ti for fronts and QS4 for surrounds..currently using a VP100 for center. Is there any advantage,difference,etc in changing the center to a VP150..just wondering if this would be a good bang for the buck. Thanks

I had both those centers and the 150 does play a tad bit lower but it was only noticeable when A/B comparing, listening to each on its own I never could notice the difference, other than I felt male vocals played a little more naturally through the VP150, is it worth it; Only you can say.

Personally I would look at the VP160 for better bang for ~$100 more than the VP150, providing of course that you have room for something this big.

Do you mean VP180?

No, there's a new one coming out which is known as the VP160. It is supposed to be matched to the M60s, and Ian has implied there will be a center coming out that matches the M50s. I'd wait for that, if I were you.

Hmmm...currently what matches the M50. My M50's are probably at least 6-7 years old..is there any difference between them now and then.

Not sure. I only have the M50tis, but my impression is that the v2/v3s are improved. However, I doubt the character of the speaker has changed, so it would probably be worth waiting for the M50 equivalent center channel to see if it's feasible for you.

I also used to have the M50/VP100/QS4 setup and it worked quite well. Never tried the 50s with a 150 (heck, I think I've only ever HEARD a 150 a few times, and that was with M60s.) That said, I don't feel like my VP100ti keeps up with my M80v2s or my QS8v2s, at least for music, so I've been toying with the idea of a VP150.

Meh. A lot of people say that. I listen to music far more critically than I listen to movies/TV, so my emphasis is on the R/L fronts.
