Got home from Victoria after a marathon painting session at my daughter's house. One room down, a couple more to go in the next while, ha!.

I unpacked the VP160 carton. Like others have remarked 'This thing is frigging big'!! The 'scratch & dent' blemish on this brand new unit is hardly noticeable, certainly not visible where it sits on the stand & was well worth the money that I saved.

One minor concern - something small is loose inside & rattles around when the box is moved. I'm not worried as all the drivers look fine, so if it doesn't make any audible anomalies, I'm not going to pursue it.

The setting up fun starts tomorrow morning...

I've only gotten as far as placing the 160 onto its shelf on the stand - perfect fit but it looks really huge!

Whoops -I just heard a clatter from my HT - the grill was laying on the floor. Seems that one of my cats was checking it out. That had better end right now!

Tomorrow morning the expletives begin, ha! If it all goes OK, then I'll get my camera out!!

I know the reason. As I get older the floor seems to get further and further away and much harder than I remember it being.

Not a good start. Now I find that a box of stuff that I needed for this job - I left in Victoria.

What a mess of wires behind my stand - who did that?

Grrr...

haha oh my god...i'm a little stoned and buzzed off a few beers right now and that made me laugh HARD.

lol well played my good sir

edit: I should add, listening to some very loud music on the system.

Just got of a 12 hour shift not to long ago...was working outside in -37. brrrr. A few beers should warm me up nicely. hehe

God, I can't give these speakers enough praise.

And I like that they are a "party" speaker. They like to play loud with the right amplification! smile

The vp160 gets a lot of "oohs" and "ahhs" from company. And it sure adds to the system
