Intimus 5C Center Channel Speaker

Intimus 5C Center Channel Speaker

I accidentally discovered this website one day while going through reviews on hometheaterreview.com and I became interested. But buying something you never heard as well as not having any local store that sells them is always a risk. However 30 day in-home trial with free shipping both ways is no brainer. When the Speakers arrived they were boxed very well. They come wrapped in the pretty nice velvet bag with gold drawstrings. Hooking them up was very easy - a speaker cable that's it. There is an awful lot to like about Aperion Audio's Intimus speakers, especially the cost. The build quality is excellent, as is the attention to detail, such as threaded mounting points both bottom and back, gold plated binding posts. The High Gloss Piano Black finish is beautiful. It has such a perfect mirror finish. The drivers are of high quality and the resulting crystal clear and precise sound is one that is easy to love and listen to for hours on end. My setup is 2 5T's, 2 4T's, 5C, 2 4B's, and the 8D.

Allaire™ ARIS® Speaker System

Allaire™ ARIS® Speaker System

This is a beautiful little system. I could not use the one-button set up to connect to my home network because my router does not have that feature. None-the-less, getting the Aris connected to my network was simple and straight forward, taking only a couple of minutes.

The fit and finish is superb. It looks great in person. The Aris is smaller than I expected and LOUDER than I expected. But even when cranked up delivers smooth highs, and a tight, but impressive amount of bass.

I had pre-ordered the Aris, and when the order was delayed I called Aperion to see what was up. The folks at Aperion were, as always, really nice, helpful, and informative.
Great wireless speaker SP

Allaire™ ARIS® Speaker System

Allaire™ ARIS® Speaker System

Wow, this is an awesome wireless speaker. It was easy to connect to my WiFi network using my smartphone and the Aperion access point that the speaker broadcasts. The speaker looks very nice and feels solid ( and is heavier than expected ). The sound is incredible , I especially like the "enhanced stereo" equalizer mode. Sending music to it is fairly simple from windows or from an Android smartphone. One slight concern I have is that I might damage the rear exposed speakers when handling it. The speaker also seems to sound the best if you are directly facing it.

Final note : I did not buy this directly but rather on ebay. I might have gotten lucky but I got a brand new in box for $260 shipped. I think at that price it is a steal. I think 500$ is a bit steep.
Thanks Aperion! David

Verus Grand Center Channel Speaker

Verus Grand Center Channel Speaker

Received my Verus Grands yesterday afternoon, and spent the better part of the evening setting them up and calibrating the system. I haven't gotten a lot of listening time yet, but I'm loving what I'm hearing so far. My previous setup was a 9 year old Onkyo HTIB which, at least as far as HTIBs go, was pretty good. But we're talking night and day between them and the Aperions. Especially on the high end, I'm getting a lot more clarity and detail that I simply never noticed before. I watched the opening car chase scene of "Quantum of Solace," and holy crap! I was literally gripping my armrests as the VGs every visceral detail of the flying bullets and screeching metal as car after car was destroyed.

My Blu-ray of "It Might Get Loud" is currently on loan, so I popped in "White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights" instead. I tell ya, if these speakers can keep up with Jack White on the guitar (and they can), there's nothing they can't do.

After that came the "Within Temptation: Black Symphony" Blu-ray, and was once again floored by this immense wall of sound coming from the VGs. And again, I kept hearing tons of new details and even whole instruments that I had not heard before. The band, the orchestra, the singer, and the crowd were all represented well with excellent definition so nothing was lost.

Suffice it to say, I will definitely be recommending Aperion Audio to anyone who will listen to me. Even if they might not be able to afford Verus Grands like mine, Aperion certainly has a diverse lineup that should be able to fit nearly any budget.

Oh, and my system:

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

Verus Grand Tower Speaker

First my equipment

Onkyo PRS886 audio/video processor (Audessey set all the aperion speakers at full range and I change them to 80Hz)
Outlaw 7700 power-amp
2 Outlaw 2200 power-amp for 2 butt-kickers (control by a Velodyne SMS for volume control)
Oppo BD103 blu-ray player
2 SVS PB13 Ultra for sub (set at 20Hz)
aperion VGT(x2), VGC and VGB (x4 for surronds)
JVC RS45/X30 projector
Carada BW 114" screen
Bluejeans balance cables
Good but basic room accoustically

As you can see, I became a firm believer of ID companies.
They offer a superior product for the money and they do have to work hard at it since most people prefer a very well known brand.
And some of them make it to big magazine and this is how I found out about Aperion.

First, I have been very happy with my 7 DIY speakers.
Never had the need or the want to change them.
Then after a new line of speaker wish I have no doubt that got very good got reviews and were compared to the aperion which got me to do some reading online.
Went to their site and start reading very good reviews from pro-review and compare them against brand names worth a lots more money (2 to 5 times more).
I got very curious and decided, it was time for a change.

After lots of e-mails back and forth with Aperion I knew their customer service is just as good as all the above mentioned ID companies.
So I did put my order ($5150 after taxes, duties and exchange).

Was it worth it?
YES, I think I got 10% better sound (It come to a point that sometime to get 2-5% is difficult without spending a lot more).
Aperion did that for me.

Outstanding finish (mine are the black satin) and the sound is so clear and clean (my wife said that I am playing the movies louder, I guess loud is good as long as it it clean).
Lots of details (beware they do not forgive bad recording as my previous DIY, if it's there, the speakers will play them. i.e. you will hear the microphone on some recording)
L & R were so easy to set-up, I put my 2 VGT at the same angle as my previous set-up and sounded perfect (either pure luck or they are very very forgiving due the phase plug design [real phase plug]).
L to R or R to L going through the center was perfect to my ears.
Details on the bookshelf as surrounds was creepy (in a good way since I came from Bi-poles side surronds).

This review is more about background and history since I do not have the proper word to describe as how good they sound.
I did get rid of all shipping boxes within a week if as a point of how much I do love them.
