VP 180 center upgrade?
Question for those who have upgraded from vp150 to VP 180, or decided to send the 180 back....
What kind of difference did it make,compared to the 150?
What demo material did you use to determine the 180 was a better fit?
I have a speaker switch (A/B) hooked up and tried the 150 on top of the 180 and also below it and very little difference( to my ears ,in my room)
Have tried BD movies,concerts,SACD's and regular cd's and difference is hard to find and when I do it is very subtle......sometimes even favoring the 150( sometimes more forward/clear) sometimes favoring 180 ( more laid back and natural) but most of the time no difference
I have this set up in front of 106" FF screen with acoustical dampening completely surrounding screen on top of audio rack using VP 180 V4 vs vp150 millennia fronts are M80 TI fronts
Front soundstage Xovers at 60hz
Have tried with front heights and surrounds off as well ( these crossed at 80 hz when on)
Greatest hobby ever!
