    Hi all Aperion Owners.  I have decided to go with some Aperion speakers (Over polk Audio) after reading so much positive.  However I am undecided

    on which.  First I was thinking of the 4T's, then I looked at specifications and must say they are rather small (and very light only 19 lbs !! ).  So I looked

    at the 5T's and the 6T's.  Right now my living situation is a small siting room but I will be moving to something bigger within 3 years.  I have an open kitchen to the sitting room.  (Sitting room is Maybe 10 X 15 and Kitchen is 6-7 X 15.)   The cost of the 6T is considerably more, how does the sound quality compare ?

     I will be ordering a Pioneer elite SC-07 also.

     

    Thank you for your help

    I would agree that if you are going to spend close to $1000 on a receiver like the SC-07 you might want a bit more speaker than the 4T up front to really get the most out of your set up. 

    As you go up the line, you get an increased midrange fullness, a larger sound stage and in the case of the 6T considerably more bass extension.  Another advantage to the 5T or 6T is that it will ensure that you don't have to upgrade down the road when you move into a larger space. 

    Between the two if you think you may be in a much larger space like an over 20'X20' room the 6Ts with their increased efficiency and projection will contend with an area like that better than the 5Ts. 

    The other factor is your usage, as the difference between them will be most noticeable when you listen to music, so if that's what you'll be using them for a good amount of the time then that's where the 6Ts really shine. 

    Hope that helps but please let me know if you have other questions, thanks!

    Another question is why would you spend $1000 on a receiver?  Spend half that and add it to your speaker budget!

    I totally agree here with PJ…I am a firm believer in 20-25% toward the receiver and the rest toward speakers.

    Ha, don't get me wrong I love the 4Ts and they are one of our bestselling models for a reason.

    But if he's gonna be throwing 140 wpc of ICE power at them, then a larger speaker is probably not a bad idea.

    I know, it,s just that the itch is always there and it does not take much to get it going.

    I would love to upgrade my front 5Bs to towers. Fortunately (for my wallet), WAF keeps me in check. She said….wall mounted speakers or no speakers. I also had to keep the price of the 12D secret! I would have been shot. Thank goodness it is small (relatively speaking).

    Edit: Wow….finally made it to Audio Guru! Woot! 251 is the magic #.

    Thanks for all the help guys.  I ordered the SC-07 just could not
    resist.  Well I think I will be ordering the 4T's and upgrading a few
    years from now when I move into a bigger house.  I will then use my 4T's
    in the computer room or second sitting room.  I know from your answers
    that the 6T is the best for music.   Anyone uses the 4T's for music
    here?  and what do you think?

     Again thanks for all your help, you know making a decision on something like
    this is just hard especially since you cant hear the speakers.  I know
    Aperion has a 30 day money back guarantee but still its hard….

     

    Cheers

    " Anyone uses the 4T's for music here?  and what do you think?"

     

    I use my 4Ts for music, I would say more than 50% of the time.  I think they do great.  They give a very satisfying experience on there own.  I also have the 8D to fill in the lower registers.  The only problem I have is i can't put the sub in a optimal place so i battle a standing wave issue.  I am having some good luck using the subs pametric equlization to tame that.

    Thanks for the input.  I am going to call Aperion on Monday / Tuesday.  I will talk to one of there Guru's and make a decision then.  I must say I am leaning very strongly towards the 4T's……

    Appreciate everyone's help.

     

    Cheers
