Bravus II 8D Powered Subwoofer

Bravus II 8D Powered Subwoofer

I purchased this to go with my 5Bs front, 4Bs rear, and 5C, and it is simply stunning! When watching movies, it is like being at the Imax. If watching a concert dvd or bluray, it is like being there! The sound is so full and warm with music, it completely complements it. No boomy nastiness, just pure clean sound. I am a 50/50 music/movie listener and this setup is perfect for me. The finish and build quality of the sub is top notch, as is the service Aperion offers. Jason Hicks was a huge help to me in picking out the right sub and surrounds to go with my front speakers and amp. I am not even a week into my sub audition and this baby is a keeper!
Very happy with my purchse Timothy

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

I am not one for giving reviews but I will tell you that I am a very picky person and the Aperions did everything the other reviewers said and more. The professional reviews are spot on and I couldn't be happier. I purchased the VGT. VGC and the Versus Forte surrounds. You will also need the speaker brackets sold by Aperion as they worked perfectly the versu line.I also purchased the speaker wire sold by Aperion and it did make an improvement over the monter cable I was using.I believe the 14 guage will do fine as the monster brand doesn't specify what size but it wasn't as big as Aperions speaker cable and the straight wire looked much nicer.The only problem I had was the center speaker wasn't finished completely around the baffle but a black furniture marker could easily fix the problem but Aperion sent me a replacement. Talk about top notch customer service. These guys are great however it is better to deal with problems on the phone and not by the Aperion chat line.Again the speakers are beautiful and I have had many compliments on the fit and finish and quality of these speakers and they do sound truly amazing on top of all that. I did not realize what I was missing.I had a pair of vintage Polk Audio Rti 800 and they were good for there time but will have to take a back seat to the Aperions I will be adding a Bravus 12d sub latter on to replace the polk 350 I have as soon as I can save up a little money. I also was quite lucky as I just missed the price increase at the beginning of the year but the speakers are definitely worth the price and if I had to pay more for these speakers I would do it in a minute. Again words cannot describe how great these speakers are. Thanks Aperion!!!!! Extremely Satisfied Customer

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

Hi everybody,

I thought I would share with you my experience with Aperion speakers….

First time I heard of Aperion was earlier this year when my father came back from a trip in the US (we live in Canada).
While on his trip, he had the chance to listen to a complete Verus Forte system and was really impressed, to say the least !
Back home, he went listening to other brands of speakers but he was always coming back to Aperion.
Finally in mid-october, i ordered a complete cherry finish Verus Forte home theater system for him, with the Bravus 8D subwoofer.
The complete system came in 2 weeks later in perfect shape and needless to say the cherry finish is simply gorgeous as others have stated earlier.

We hooked everything to his Anthem MRX 300 and start listening to the Forte towers, no ARC, stereo only and no sub.
I still remember the first song we played, ‘’Your Latest Trick, from Dire Straits’’. To make a long story short, it was simply delightfull, no less.
Immediately the mids and the highs impressed me a lot, with everything being clear and natural.
Because of the size of these little towers, i was not expecting a ton of low end coming out of them, but i was in for another nice surprise.
As expected, they did not blew the roof out of the house but i find out that for their size, they were doing really good with the low end.
During the following days, we played with Anthem ARC and speakers position to get the best out of them and after listening to a lot of music, i ended up being really impressed by their performance.
The room is about 13’ X 16’ with 8’ ceiling and unless we really want deep bass, most of the time the sub is not used when music is played.

For movies, I did not have a chance to listen to any movie on this system so I cannot comment on their performance as a home theater system but judging by their great performance with music, i bet they are going to do well.

Then a couple of days later, back in my home and still stuck with what I call now, the '‘Aperion grin’’ in my face, i decided to pull the trigger for a set of cherry finish VGT as my birthday gift.
I choosed the VGT over the Forte because i have a large room area to fill, the living room, dining room and the kitchen being all open to each other.
I was a bit concerned on how the VGT would perform in a large area like that ......
I placed the order in early November and they came in 3 weeks later in pristine condition.
I hooked them to my MRX 300 and start listening to some music with my wife.
When we heard the first notes coming out of the VGT, we immediately knew they were going to fill the bill.
We spent the rest of the day listening to Mark Knopfler and his band that were followed by Pink Floyd and many other artists for a memorable listening experience that confirmed i had made the right choice with the VGT.

I don’t have the talent of some others here to describe the sound coming out of speakers and english is not my first language so it’s even harder for me to provide you with an highly detailed review on how these towers sounds.
Compare to the Forte, the soundstage coming out of the VGT is larger and of course, they have more low ends.
The sound coming from both towers, the Forte and the VGT, is well balanced with great vocals and highs, everything coupled with really nice bass for music. They really are a joy to listen to.
After listening numerous times to a pair of Tannoy Arden that belongs to a long time friend, and listening to some other good quality speakers over the years, i can tell you the VGT and the Forte are really great speakers, they have a lot to offer for the money.

We did watch some blu-rays with the VGT, using Polk RTi A3 i already have for surround, but no sub and center channel yet.
Nevertheless, this was, and still is, a great experience. Clearly the VGT are at ease in a home theater system, can’t wait to add the VGC center and a sub in 2013.

I did take a chance by ordering the VGT without hearing them.
Add to that that shipping to Canada is free for one way only, we have to pay shipping for return if we don't like them (and i understand the reason for that, i'm not complaining), and you can imagine how nervous i was when i pulled the trigger !
But after 3 weeks listening to the VGT and spending numerous hours playing with the Forte, i still have this '' Aperion grin'' in my face !
I think that says it all, the Forte and the VGT have found new homes.

That's my experience with Aperion, which was great in all aspect !
More pleased than with any other speaker I've owned.... Kurt

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

I think I have a day or so left on my 30 day trial.

I've played these speakers endlessly, listening as critically as possible with countless different source materials, inviting every neighbor, friend & family member I can to provide a balance to my review and resulting opinion.

Everyone, every single person that I've invited to hear these are extremely impressed with the accurate sound stage, clarity, and dynamic response that these provide.

I completed a step by step review from the day these hit my doorstep with photo's at:

If you're considering these I'd invite you to review my impressions at the link above, along with my extreme satisfaction. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Aperion Allaire™ Zona® Home Audio Link System

Aperion Allaire™ Zona® Home Audio Link System

After looking at other wireless options to stream audio from PC to receiver I decided to give the Aperion Zona Home Audio Link System a try since it seemed to have the best reviews. I was very impressed with how easy it was to get connected. Absolutely all of the cables you would need are included. At first I was not sure how I was going to power the receiving side that connects to my Pioneer Elite Receiver, but I found a AC outlet on the back of my receiver that worked perfect. That saved me from having to move my entertainment center to get to the power strip or finding an open USB port on another device since my receiver is older. I did give the sound rating 4 stars since it does not seem as loud or rich as another device I stream my music library from. It may be due to the 2.5mm headphone jack to RCA connection or limitations of the USB on the PC side. I can get the music as loud as I want it without distortion, I just have to turn the volume up further on my receiver. Overall I am really impressed and would recommend to anyone looking for an easy solution to send music from a PC to receiver. The main reason I wanted this was so that I could listen to music (network music library or internet radio) on my home theatre while playing video games. Although possible to do without using the PC, I would have no easy way to change channels or songs while someone was playing video games. I am also happy with what appears to be a new design of the product. It looks like an older version was a square gray box. These little black donuts / hockey pucks blend in nice and are easy to hide.
Wow! What a difference. Steve

Intimus 6-DT Stereo In-Ceiling Speaker

Intimus 6-DT Stereo In-Ceiling Speaker

We have a whole-house audio system, which until today, was mostly basic speakers. They were definitely not audiophile grade, but they sounded decent. The Intimus 6-DT installed quick and immediately we have an entirely different level of sound. It is amazing the amount of perfect audio the one speaker can put out. Even my wife, who is definitely not an audiophile, walked into the living area saying, "Wow, that sounds so much better".

We could not be happier with this purchase and will slowly replace all of our ceiling speakers with the Intimus 6-DT.

Thanks Aperion!!

Intimus 4T Hybrid SD

Intimus 4T Hybrid SD

I have very little experience in high quality speaker purchases - so my review is from a novice. That said, I have not had a purchase experience quite like this - at every step of the way Aperion was thoughtful, kind, and helpful. My purchase was met with enthusiasm, accuracy, and efficiency. As I waited for the speakers to arrive I was met with informative, helpful, and courteous. When they arrived I was blown away - they came a day early and were very carefully packaged. Opening each box was like a throwback to childhood christmas morning! Each package was complete and with instructions that were easy to follow. Hooking them up to my Marantz 1603 was a breeze and calibration was actually fun (I assumed it would strictly be intimidating)! Now, I'm enjoying amazing sound - both from movies and music. In short, I will eagerly suggest anyone interested in a fantastic sound system to head straight to Aperion!

Intimus 5B Bookshelf Speaker Pair

Intimus 5B Bookshelf Speaker Pair

I purchased these speakers alone with a center channel speaker back in April before the room they were going into was finished. I finally set up my surround sound. These speakers are awesome! The sound quality is fantastic. The craftsmanship is superior and the price is right. What else could you ask for? When the speakers were in transit to my house I received an email from customer service detailing all that they, the speakers, went through along their journey to me. I was taken back a bit as I never experienced that from other companies and probably never will. They did not need to do that however it went a long way as far as feeling important that I purchased through them. Not ever hearing the speakers before I was really hoping that they sounded great because the company seemed to care. All the reviews I read were extremely helpful in determining which center channel and front bookshelf speakers to purchase. I went with the Intimus 5C center speaker and the 5B bookshelf speakers for my front left and right and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for excellent crisp sound, quality material at a great price and very considerate and thoughtful customer service and they come with white gloves!

Intimus 4T Hybrid SD

Intimus 4T Hybrid SD

My primary use is listening to operas on Blu-ray or DVD. I have taken the time to let the speakers break in and to listen to dozens of operas on Blu-ray and DVD as well as on CDs.

Not that much is routed to the subwoofer in these sources, but I enjoy the visceral sound when it kicks in. In live productions the applause has lots of bass. In a production of Handel's Admetto re-imagined in medieval Japan, Hercules costumed as sumo wrestler has to lift up one leg high and stomp the wood stage with his bare foot. With the volume set for the singing that sound shook my house. if you are strictly an opera buff and on tight budget, you could skip buying the subwoofer.

The more important aspects of the sound for opera are the clarity and projection of the spacing. Because there was a delay with shipping the tower speakers, I initially set up the system with some good large bookshelf speakers. Switching to the Aperion towers made an immediate improvement. The surrounds provide a great feel of the opera house. These system is an excellent value because they can fill a 25' by 20' room at high sound volumes without distortion.

By the way, using the meter to set the balance made a big difference. The automatic balance adjustment in the Onkyo receiver was worthless.
