Verus Grand Tower XD

Verus Grand Tower XD

My father has a very nice THC 5.1 surround sound system. He spent about 5 times more money then I did going with the Aperion Versus 5.1 set up. I have spent hundreds of hours watching movies / listening to music on his THC system. It truly made me appreciate sound quality and have ever since dreamed of being able to come home and go in to that aura that only great speakers can create. Im not a unrealistic guy so I knew it would be a very long time before I would be able to buy 20,000 dollar speakers if ever. So as time went on I started thinking about temporary reliefs such as home theaters in a box.......... I couldn't go back to that s***, so I researched and researched and continuously came across outstanding Aperion audio reviews. Ok so now I know Aperion is the only way to go I just didn't know that was going to be the easiest decision of the process. I didnt find a bad review on any of there speakers, HOW DO YOU CHOOSE ON SO MANY GOOD REVIEWS!?!?! I finally just decided if I was going to save I might as well save for the top. I had the space for it. I will never regret this purchase I have permanently earned gloating rights with my father who refuses to admit it but knows my system sounds better. Everything about my transaction was perfect. The customer support is always very quick and friendly. As long as Aperion keeps it up I will never buy from another company.

Verus Grand Bookshelf Speaker Pair

I've had the VGBs for about two weeks now and I am happier with my purchase every day. I currently have these set up as my main fronts in 2.0 and 7.1 setups. They are pushed with a Denon 4311ci and paired with a HSU VTF-15H Subwoofer for stereo music. Aperion wasn't kidding when they said their speakers sound great out of the box. And the Cherry finish looks like a finish you should have to pay twice as much for. The first few days I played some FLAC files of Adele and Mumford & Sons and was astonished by the smooth clarity exuded by the VGBs. I currently have the crossed over at 60hz which seems to be a great sweet spot given my setup and they mesh really well at this point with the subwoofer. My living room is 18x22 with a vaulted ceiling and an open loft. The VGBs have no problem filling the entire space with great sound. They have performed really well matched with the VGC during movies as well. After I purchase some VGTs, my Verus Grand lineup will be complete and I feel I will not need to upgrade for a very long time. Thanks Aperion!

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

I have had so many speakers come and go in and out of my system it's hard to recall
them all. From Revel Studios to B&W 802s to Paradigm Sigs to Maggies to Mythos to Ascend Sierra's to NHT's... on and on the list goes.
Much of this was by design, I wanted to listen to as many different speakers as possible, get to know their sound, their strengths, their weakness,
and how they performed in my listening room.... you should know our listening room is our family room, not the perfect environment for a speaker but it is was it is, so the speaker must be able to not only perform well in it's given space but also look good while doing it.
After all the speaker madness I've put my system (and bank account) through the little women and I came to an agreement that the madness had to stop. It was time to take all I'd learned about which kind of speakers performed best in my listening room, would fit in it's given space and look good doing it....
Enter the Verus Grand Towers and Center...
I'd never heard them before, of course I'd read the rave reviews, both professional and user,
and I'd determined they would physically fit in the space I could provide them....
so would the Ascend Towers and Salk SongTowers both of which I'd considered strongly before deciding the VGTs & VGC had more of what I was after...
curved cabinet design, speakers that could handle both music and movies, more drivers should help with movie dynamics, the ideal center speaker design, and if I didn't like them... free return shipping.
So I placed my order. A few days later the Center speaker arrived, the Towers a few weeks later as they were on back order.
As soon as I unpacked the center speaker I knew one of my speaker criteria had been exceeded.... WOW what a beautiful speaker!
The deep rich cherry finish and smooth curved cabinet design, not to mention its super solid construction.... and the best news, it sounds as good as it looks. Since the VGC has been in our system we haven't missed a word of dialogue.
Female as well as male music vocals are a treat to behold, rich, detailed, never harsh...
dare I say perfect..... really I couldn't imagine a better center speaker at any price!
So when the Towers arrived my expectations were extremely high....
the Towers didn't disappoint, in fact they reinforced the shock and awe we were experiencing from the VGC.... just more of it.
The VGTs have an effortless, smooth sound to them. They go deep, very deep, a quick check with Styke's Basszone CD shows strong bass performance down into the upper 20s. Imaging is spot on, soundstage is wide, deep and surprisingly high or tall. Upper bass and mids are powerful and rich with a sort of effortless presentation that pulls you into the recording. Highs are even better, silky smooth yet with a detail that brings out the "texture" of the recording in a way that makes you want to hear more and more, say goodbye to listener fatigue.
So as you can tell I'm in speaker heaven.
I've finally found a speaker that fills ALL my speaker needs....
Great sound,
Great looks,
Great product support,
Perfect size, (for me)
Double duty performers.... music & movies
Thank You Aperion!

Intimus 5C Center Channel Speaker

Intimus 5C Center Channel Speaker

I got this 5C to go with a pair of 5Bs initially. It is a huge addition to my home theater! The sound that comes out of it is clear and detailed. Everyone, no matter where they are sitting, can hear the dialog flawlessly. It is also everything a center channel should be to music: transparent! It just disappears when listening to music in surround, blending in seamlessly with the front 5Bs, Bravus II 8D sub, and rear 4Bs. I have never had a sound system that worked so well together. It is truly a surround experience, where everything works so well together that every individual part disappears and you become completely absorbed in the experience of listening to the music or soundtrack, and not the speakers. I have close 200 hours listening and do not know how I lived without this as part of my home theater. Thanks again to all at Aperion for the fantastic service and help. Jason Hicks really helped me with all my questions, never failing to provide a timely and informative response.
Astounding! Paul G.

Intimus 5B Bookshelf Speaker Pair

Intimus 5B Bookshelf Speaker Pair

I have a pair of these that go along with a 5c, a pair of 4b surrounds and a Bravus II 8D sub. They are simply beyond belief! The sound that they produce is so pure and clear it has to be heard to be believed! The soundstage is immense as well. Whether listening to music or movies, they never fail to impress and put a smile on my face. They look as great as they sound with fantastic build quality and finish. I love the smooth rounded corners and edges. It is a work of art, for sure. The sound out of the box was good, but after the break in period-WOW! After almost 200 hrs, these babies are keepers. The staff at Aperion have been amazing and Jason Hicks helped me out with my setup immensely, never failing to respond to my endless chain of emails. Thanks Jason!
Amazing! Paul G.

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

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 !
