I will try again, last time I tried the forum kept resetting to me not being logged in. I would log in, then try to post and then I was not logged in again. Round and round it went.

Non-standard RAIDs can recover deleted files. Anyone who says RAID protection is only for failed drives is lying.

In response to 'newfmp3's' in post #470 requesting pics of my new High Gloss Rosewood M22V4s, I'm providing a link to the pics that I posted this morning.

The process took double the normal time of 30 days for the labour intensive work to apply a dozen hand rubbed coats of lacquer, especially because the cold winter weather was playing havoc with their paint booth.

Anyway, they sound as good as they look - quite stunning actually. They compliment my similarly finished EP-800V3s much better than the standard black vinyl ones did.

See them here in post #409892 :

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
Front soundstage Xovers at 60hz
Have tried with front heights and surrounds off as well ( these crossed at 80 hz when on)
I have Audyssey off for now
Just discovered the 150 plays up to 3db louder( pending which seat I measure from.....)....
Plus my ears are accustomed to the 150 (12 plus years)
Try playing only 180 for a week t,hen retest

I'm setting up my non-dedicated room for a 7.1.4 speaker layout. I only have 1 row of seating and I need some advice/opinions on where to place my side surrounds. I have a pair of M2 and a pair of QS8 . What would be better for side surrounds the M2 or QS8 ? This is a atmos setup with 4 ceiling speakers so the side surrounds will be lowered around ear height .

My speakers are :

Center - VP160
Front L/R - M22
Surround Speakers are - M2 and QS8
Sub - HSU VTF3 MK4
Atmos speakers are mounted on the ceiling .

Being an Axiom HT owner, you might want to join the Axiom Company Forum & post your technical question over there where there is a lot of Axiom expertise. Many guys there really know their stuff WRT to complex speaker placement.

I have only a pair of QS8V4s & they are on the back wall about 8 feet back from my MPL. They work really well there in my oddly shaped room largely due to their quad-polar design...

Update on vp150 millennia vs vp180 v4 centers

Well,I'm past my 30 day "free trial",and have decided to keep the VP 180 for a few reasons
When I compared the 150 to the 180 for most movie scenes/tv watching etc....it was a very close but usually favoured the 180....subtle... ( but I was usually using scenes that the 150 sounded good in ?)
So I found a few scenes that the 150 struggled with ( being a bit too forward.....), and the 180 just played them.....not really drawing any attention to itself ( more laid back and natural....) for this reason alone I'm keeping it .
also on most BD concerts the 180 sounds better,and I think after trying both centres hooked up to left front of AVR it proved the 180 is a much better speaker and as more content gets sent to center channel the 180 will increase the gap
But for now as a center channel I have to say it is a upgrade, but a subtle one.

Also would like to mention there seems to be quite a difference in sonics between the M80tis ( little more forward)and the vp180 v4( more laid back and natural).....not a timbre match to say the least
But I can't give back the 180 ( like it too much compared to the VP 150) and also luv my M80 ti's ......but I may need/ have to upgrade them to V4's ........

Greatest hobby ever!
