Every time I put in a Bluray and it sounds great. Series 5's.

I haven't been to the site for awhile but when I saw this post I just could not resist. I purchased my main system about three years ago. At first I ran 5T, 5C, 8D and 4T's for the surround spots. Last summer I added the 5DBs for the surround spot and moved the 4T's to the back. This made a huge improvement to that feeling of immersion. I am always amazed at the quality. I fill a fairly large room (22'x40) 

I think I've got the bug again though, I just added a new NAD 787 to replace the old Onkyo SR706. at 200 watts all channels driven I'm thinking the 6T and 6C Versus would sound awfully sweet. OH NO! Not the BUG. 

 I tried a lot of speakers before Aperians and have not one second of regret.

Thank you for the update Dave!

Yes, the NAD should add a bump in performance to your existing setup.  It would definitely drive the Verus speakers very well.  One thing I might do before going that route would be to add a second 8D subwoofer.  This will even out the bass effects in the room, and make it sound more full.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the reply. It's funny that you would recommend the additional sub as the only complaint that I get from the wife is the fact that she can hear (feel) the bass a couple of rooms away, even though I have it at a lower volume than I'd like it. I am still playing around with placement in the room for the sub, even after 3 years so maybe this would fill out without adding total volume. For me the attraction of upgrading to towers and new center is to create more presence in the mid range as well as definition of dialogue. The NAD has gone a long way to improve this and the natural sound reproduction is a big step forward. By comparison the old Onkyo seemed muted and muddled. One thing I have noticed over the years is how forward the towers are. This was helped enormously by adding the 5db's. They created a more balanced and enveloping feel especially since the 4T's are helping to fill the rear of the room.

The room acoustics are at best a challenge with multiple windows, doors, rock fireplace and 25' cathedral ceilings.   

 This is something to consider though

Yes adding a second sub would definitely even out your room and you wouldn't have to play around with placement much more.  However it would increase the volume a bit so I don't know if that would fly with the WAF.  I'm glad you like your current set up, that sounds like a winner to me.

I have enjoyed my 12 Aperion speakers for almost 5 years
now. (2) 634’s, (4) 534’s, (3) 532C’s, (2) 422’s and an S10 Sub. I have read
about all the improvements especially regarding the tweeters, but I cant
complain about the quality of sound and these speakers run about 8 hours a day
and I have noticed no depreciation in SQ from initial break-in. I run 10 most
of the time but on occasion I run 2 of the 532’s that are mounted higher up
with a separate amp interfaced to my Onkyo TX-SR805 130 WPC. Yes, 12 speakers
probably sound like an overkill but I have over 5000 cu/ft to fill.

It has been almost four years to the day that the first notes went through my Aperions. Four 5B, a 5C, and a first edition 12D. Still loving it everyday. Just like Jackson63, I too am using an Onkyo TX-SR805. The video is handled by a 50" Pioneer Plasma (sucks that they are out of the business…they were the best).

I know there are people that have more cash invested and perhaps have a "better" system, but I have never once thought to myself that I wish I had something better. It sounds that good!!

Jackson, check your PM.
