Intimus 5C Center Channel Speaker

Intimus 5C Center Channel Speaker

This was my first Aperion purchase. If the center speaker sounds great, you can build the rest of your home theater around that. I was blissfully surprised at how great it really sounds. Once my settings were correct I thumbed through the TV listings, and saw that Star Wars: Attck Of The Clones was on. I turned to hear great battle scenes. That's not what hooked me. There was a point where Anakin rubbed his hand on along the sleeve of queen Amidala's dress. I could hear and feel the silkiness. That's when I was hooked! Pure clarity and perfection from an affordable speaker. I am Aperion for life now. (4/25/14)

Aperion Allaire™ Zona® Home Audio Link System

Aperion Allaire™ Zona® Home Audio Link System

After years of trying to get another wireless stereo product to work - and giving up - I used a complete interior makeover of our house as an excuse to jump back into the market. After struggling to get a decent signal from my laptop to my speakers in my home office, I finally just ran a long stereo RCA cable from the headphone connection around the floor to the amp. After a brief search on the web, I ran across the Zona HAL system. The reviews were almost universally positive, so I gave them a try. They were professionally packed, came with every accessory imaginable (including their own power supplies) and were super easy to hook up. I have the "Send" unit connected to a powered USB hub that is hidden under my desk and the "Receive" unit is hidden behind the Proton amp (driving Island Sound Stowaway speakers - we're talking vintage stuff here...). It works like a charm! Sound quality is as good or better than a CD and I'm able to listen to Pandora, ripped CD's, YouTube, anything with never a drop in the signal. These are a high-quality product from a top notch company. The order process was painless and the follow-up professional. Looking back, it seems almost comical how difficult it was to get a wireless connection from my computer to the stereo. This is a great little system and worth every penny. Get them - you won't be disappointed...

Verus Grand Tower XD

Verus Grand Tower XD

My only complaint is that after 2 weeks I still cannot peel the smile off my face. I continue to be amazed at the sound quality of these speakers.

I never write product reviews but felt obligated to do so in this case due to the quality of the product and customer service I received.

Initially, I was a little apprehensive about purchasing a speaker system that I had not heard in person. If you fall into this category, I strongly encourage you to take the plunge and pursue the Aperion Audio speakers. I can tell you from my own experience that Aperion Audio's no hassle return policy and TOP notch customer service/support should definitely remove any concerns you might have. I leveraged both of these services during my purchase experience and they were great to deal with. Their no hassle return policy is not just lip service, they stand by it.

After much research online and auditioning various speakers in similar (and above) price ranges, I decided to order the Aperion Verus Grand XD system. It was the best decision I could have made. After placing these speakers in my far less that optimal home theater room, the Aperion's clearly shined above the other similarly priced systems I auditioned in much better acoustically designed rooms.

The Verus Grand Tower's are fantastic for two channel music. I immediately heard new elements of music I've listened to for years due to the quality and clarity of the sound these speakers produce. As I've continued through my music library, I repeatedly have this experience, hearing my favorite music at a whole new level.

The Verus Grand XD systems is equally amazing for Home Theater use. The Verus Grand Center produces excellent, clear dialogue. As a whole, the system has fantastic imaging, really allowing the sound to move from left to right and front to back with a seamless transition.

Initially I was a little concerned on the Bravus sub. It initially seemed a little light to me. After some tuning of my system (and possibly some break in) I have found that the folks at Aperion knew what they were doing. The sub rounds out the bottom of my music and is more than capable of substantial punch in home theater use. I find that the Bravus sub is paired very well with the Verus Grand Towers for music. It just seems to cup the bottom end of the sound spectrum without sounding over or under done... Just right.

Aside from the sound, the speakers are well made and beautiful. Wife points achieved...

Bravus II 12D Powered Subwoofer

Bravus II 12D Powered Subwoofer

I bought this sub on a bit of a whim. I needed something that was very detailed and clear for music. I thought, hey, what the heck, the pro's like it, it has a ten year warranty and in home trial, lets give it a shot. When I received the package, I was a little disappointed to find it was only single boxed, but the foam was quite thick and the sub arrived in excellent condition. When you take the foam out, the sub is encased in a beautiful purple velvet bag. Unreal, very cool. After several layers, you pull out the sub and man, this thing is a work of art. Easily the best fit and finish I've ever seen on a sub.

After firing it up and letting it settle in for a few days, I played a lot of music. I just couldn't stop listening. This sub doesn't go as low or as loud as others in it's price range, but it is so precise and gets plenty loud and low for me. I had to add foam tape all over the place just to stop the house from rattling!!! As far as precision, I listened to a lot of technical death metal with bass arpeggio's and crazy fast double bass. This sub not only played it clean as day, but as loud as I could handle. VERY IMPRESSIVE. Equally impressive was electronic music. The extension on low bass notes is astounding, you can literally feel it, no matter where you are in the room. I discovered at loud volumes you can feel it in every wall, even on the other end of the house. Not for apartments, that's for sure.

I never was into the Home Theater scene, but I find myself buying more and more movies just because this sub has made them a blast to watch. If you buy one of these beauties, let it warm up and watch the new Batman trilogy. What a treat!

In summation, I was totally blown away by this sub. Not just it's sound, but it's really a piece of furniture too. I often take the radiator covers off just to watch this beauty play. Great job Aperion. I plan on buying another just to bump up the bass even more. Highly recommended.

Verus Grand Center Channel Speaker

Verus Grand Center Channel Speaker

i was blow away with the aperion grand verus center channel, with my sonus faber venere 2.5 towers is the perfect combination, this center it's 10 out of 10 so far so good, this center blow out of the water the venere center channel i had, the venere couldn't keep up with the towers at references levels, losing it's composure sounding harsh and shrill, but the verus grand was effortless, sounding clean, clear, and BIG, without compromise any sound quality, simply amazing.

5 stars to the Grand verus center channel in every way.

Intimus 5B Harmony SD

Intimus 5B Harmony SD

I waited until 100+ hours of break in to write this review. I absolutely love these speakers. This system has has exceeded my expectations. I purchased the Intimus setup on their farewell sale about 3 weeks ago on a tight budget. I just finished watching Pacific Rim Blu-Ray in DTS Master Audio with the Marantz SR5008 that Aperion also offers. Even my wife was blown away. We live in a medium sized apartment and the sound stage was the size of a 5 bedroom house. Epic all around. If you are deciding between these and the Versus line my 2 cents are you'll be happy either way it all just comes down to your budget. Aperion speakers are very high quality and you will not be disappointed. The 30-day in home trial and trade up program only sweeten the deal. My interactions with customer service have been exceptional as well. Stop reading and buy whatever you have in your cart right now!

Marantz SR5008 7.2 Channel Home Theater Receiver

Marantz SR5008 7.2 Channel Home Theater Receiver

Purchased this with my Intimus setup and could not be happier. The sound is very clean and its obvious the technology present in this receiver is top notch. I was really impressed with how balanced the highs and lows are out of the box and how well Audyssey MultEQ XT took it up to the next level. 100watts per channel is plenty to drive 4 5B's, 1 5C and the 8D. I personally love the porthole design and overall aesthetics. In general this is a much smaller profile than the Onkyo or Elite's in the same price range.

For those debating the 5008 vs the 6008 here is my take. If you don't have a need for HDMI out for zone 2 or DSD ( SA-CD) then the extra 10w per channel might not be worth the $300 dollars. Also the 5008 is going to be a few inches more shallow than the 6008 which happened to be a positive for my current furniture.

Overall couldn't be happier! Its a perfect match with the Aperion Intimus setup.

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

In 2007 I purchased my first Aperion speakers, the Intimus 5Bs. I used these for years on their own mounted on the bookshelf stands. I was so impressed at how they simply handled everything I threw at them with such responsiveness and clarity. I decided last year I would start completing my HT system with Aperions. I was a little upset Aperion stopped carrying the Intimus family in Cherry. So, I ended up purchasing a closeout opened box 5C Center in Cherry and a new Bravus 8A Sub in black. I was on the fence for a while about the front towers. It wasn't until after having an issue just recently with the Bravus amp and Aperion sending me a replacement amp under warranty that I decided to see if the Verus Grand Towers in Cherry could complete the system.

Let me just say that never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined my completed system sounding this good. I used my Integra 8.9's bi-amp capabilities with the Verus towers for the fronts and used the 5Bs as the surrounds. I did my firsts test with HBO's John Adams miniseries and with Rob Rodriguez's Machette, both Blu-ray discs in DTS-HD Master Audio. The sound stage is stunning for both action scenes or immersing yourself into an entirely natural landscape. When calibrated, the towers and the center literally disappear delivering a broad and enveloping experience. The bookshelf speakers handle the surrounds just as easily as they handled the fronts. And the sub continues to cleanly push out thunderous lows with no distortion.

And they have to be the best looking furniture in my theater. I was worried about this point but it actually works out considering how large and heavy they are. And believe it or not, you'd be hard pressed to notice the difference in finishes unless you put a lot of light and attention onto the Verus and the Intimus cabinets.

My one complaint about the towers is that they are advertised to have metal grilles. Having a cat with claws, this was a huge selling point. They are metal, but they are also covered in fabric which sort of kills this selling point. They are also impossible to remove without the "grill removal tool" which I was unable to find anywhere in the packaging.

All in all, what I got was much more than I expected to get. And with Aperion's proven customer service record I know I couldn't find a better deal on speakers of this caliber.

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

I've had my VGTs and VGC for a few weeks now and I'm very happy with them. I listened to, bought and returned numerous speakers including the VGBs. The company is great to deal with and I must have been a real pain for them. I bought their speakers, returned them, bought them again and finally upgraded them. After returning the VGBs the first time and buying different speakers I couldn't shake their sound, these speakers really did grow on me. So I bought the VGBs again and this time realized they were the speaker for me....well almost. I did exchange the VGBs for the Towers which I love but honestly I think I'd have been happy with the Bookshelves since I have a pair of SVS subs. The VGBs put out an amazing amount of sound for their size, but the Towers do have more output on the bottom end which you would expect. Also I think the finish is much nicer than most other modestly priced speakers. My only complaint is the quality of the front baffle isn't up to the same standards as the rest of the cabinet. All in all I think these speakers are an excellent value and I can't imagine a company offering better customer service.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these speakers. The velvet bags are a nice touch too.

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

I have been waiting for years to make the purchase of my wife friendly speakers. I have owned multiple brands over the years. The original wish list was the 633 towers. Wow was I happy to have waited for the Grand Versus towers. Spectacular service and products, I have never been so happy with an audio purchase as I am with Aperion. Make no mistake they are the ultimate in a budget high end audio. Do your self a favor buy me all.

Now to the sound. I have owned Klipsch heritage lines for years. Not wife approved by the way. The Aperions blow the Klipsch away in detail and texture. The fact that they are great foe movies as well as music is the number one reason for my purchase and do they ever deliver. Previous Definitive Technologies were pale in comparison as well. After the break in period the openness is amazing. If you like movies with all the in your face sounds and music with all the nuances recorded and intended to reproduce you better get your credit card warmed up.
