Just wait until your M100's pair up with that bad boy but I I guess you can imagine the result. So cool to hear you really like it! There is nothing better than a upgrade that is kind of game changing.

Congrats

The Vp160 can play low with ease I have mine running off a channel of my ADA1250, nice full surprisingly deep male voices.
With the amount of content in the center nowadays it's a must 160/180 all the way.

I have to do more critical listening but I'm not convinced a centre is needed for DPLII if listening from only the main position. In fact, it may be detrimental to over-all imaging and texture.

It was easy for me to turn the 150 off for music but with the 160, it's so leaps and bounds better, I have to be a lot more critical.

I ended up getting the vp160 but always wonder if I should have got the 180.

I read many people prefer the m/t/m configuration for off axis listening.

I love it tho!

People always exclaim how monstrous my center channel is lol

I can't trust a completely horizontal configuration after owning the 150. When I first heard the 160, I immediately liked it.
