(y) if this is how music makes you feel.

May the Fourth be with you all!

(y) Great review from Christopher B! "The VP150 is an excellent center channel...

Any roadies / concert lovers out there think this is as cool as I do?

All grills off for me. I want to see as much wood as possible.

Normally I leave my grills on but for this speaker I say off... mainly because I'm not a fan of those slanted lines on em. I'm more of a perpendicular kinda guy.

Grills on for movies.

Grills off for music.

Door locked for toddlers.

I'm beginning to think we may need a special closet just for the grills.

I'm just not a fan of the full-length front grill on this speaker and the M80.

I thought this new speaker had segmented grills? Or does it just appear that way?

i think the grill is recessed in the mid range section, to give the a more "design" look, that just a flat grill... i would bet Ian and andrew used the injection molding machine to get the backing to get the correct geometry, then stretch/glue the cloth material to the form.

That's what I thought. You can now have different grill configurations depending on your mood. Maybe even different colour options for the segments? I don't think I've ever seen a speaker with three different colours on the front.
