A step in the direction of audio fidelity
Posted on 3/31/2016
I had previously purchased the Allaire Bluetooth Speakers for my bedroom setup and have loved them since they arrived. I did quite a bit of looking around online and talking with friends who are more of an audiophile than I could ever claim to be. I saw many great reviews and ratings of Aperion and decided to give the wireless speakers a shot.
About a year or so later I purchased a new house that offered the opportunity to upgrade my home theater system. I again searched high and low and Aperion continued to fall at the top of the list. I reached out to the Aperion Guru, Dallas is who I spoke with specifically, to talk about my options. We exchanged many, MANY, emails before I landed on a setup. I have to say, I can't recall a time I received better sales support. I was looking at the higher priced 5T Hybrid setup and after speaking with Dallas (I know this won't get him in trouble as it is clear this is the culture at Aperion) I decided on this less expensive setup. Dallas' boss shouldn't worry because I ended up upgrading the subwoofer making up the difference. There was even a point during our conversations where I shared photos of the room I planned to use and Dallas did a mock up of how I could setup the speakers. All of this before I ever even made the decision to buy from Aperion and it definitely had a huge impact on my final decision.
After my purchase we continued to stay in contact as some of the items were back ordered. Dallas was again great with keeping me updated on where my order was and potential ETA for the back ordered items. I received the towers, center and subwoofer before the surrounds and got everything setup using my previous satellite speakers in place of the surrounds. It sounded amazing, but it was abundantly clear the satellites were no where near the level of the rest of the setup. When I finally got the 4BP and set them up, I was blown away. MP3 and FLAC music was the clearest I had heard and Bluray movies were immersive like never before. Not to mention the upgrade to the Bravus II 12D was clearly the right choice, although my neighbors would probably disagree. I do frequently have to keep it at around 1/3 full volume or I'd be rattling the neighbors windows and getting noise complaints. I can't compliment the sound enough and even my audiophile friends are impressed.
Lastly, support after my purchase was again phenomenal. Dallas helped me with some challenges I ran into while setting things up. Again I sent him a photo so he could see the final product and he pointed out recommendations for improving the sound stage like angling the front towers which I read, but had forgot when setting things up.
It should be abundantly clear that I am extremely happy with my purchase and decision to go with Aperion. I would recommend them to anyone and why not, you have 60 days to determine for yourself, but I'm sure you will have fallen in love before that.
