    Hey Gurus,

    I'm extremely happy with my current Aperion speakers and have them in a near perfect home theater. I have the Intimus 4Ts, 5C, 4BPs, and Bravos II 8D in my 12' x 21' theater, with my seats 9' from the front.  They sound great, seem to fill in all the spaces, and all have the ideal tower, center, surround placement (most importantly my surrounds are at 90 degrees, 2' above ear level) but I want to upgrade my 5.1 to a 7.1.  My plan had been to move my 4BPs to the rear and place 5DBs at the 90 degree point, but as those are no longer available in black, I'm weighing other options.  Will I notice a significant upgrade going with the Verus Surrounds over two additional 4BPs, or god forbid, another brand?  I know that you don't necessarily need to voice match the front and surrounds, but just thought I'd ask for some expert opinions before I make the purchase especially since I haven't yet found any reviews on the Verus Surrounds (link if one exists please!).  Thanks again for the great product and all the help in advance!

    Hello there, when placed directly to your sides I do think the Verus Surrounds offer a more dramatic surround effect due to the sound being more diffuse and less localized.  Is it a massive difference?  That's a tougher call in my opinion but I do think it is a difference that most people can hear, so if you are wanting a less directional speaker than the 4BP then it will be probably be worth it.  

    I hope that helps but please let me know if you have any other questions, thanks!
