Aperion Audio Unveils Verus Grand Speakers

Aperion Audio Verus Grand Speakers

Aperion Audio today debuted the Aperion Verus Grand line of home theater speakers at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in Denver, CO. Aperion designed the Verus Grand speaker system, including a patent-pending tweeter, for authentic sound reproduction. The speaker was designed for a true-to-life sound and the company wanted to "spark an emotional connection that transports movie and music lovers into the performance, exactly as the producers intended." That's a pretty lofty, but understandable goal. The Verus Grand family is positioned as a high-end complement to the company's award-winning Aperion Intimus line of home theater speakers.

“The goal for the Aperion Verus Grand line was to create an accurate, uncolored, lifelike experience. To do that, our team built the entire speaker system from the bottom up, engineering each component for maximum sonic impact while keeping the cost in reach of most home theater audio buffs.”

- Ken Humphreys, Aperion’s lead speaker engineer

A key part of the solution is the company's new Axially Stabilized Radiator tweeter, which takes the burden of reproducing upper-mid frequencies off the mid-range driver. That allows each driver to do the job it does best. The result is wider dispersion for an expanded soundstage and lower distortion to boost clarity.

The audio enthusiast can configure a well-matched high-performance 5.0 home theater system by combining a pair of tower speakers, a center channel and a pair of bookshelf speakers for surrounds, all from the Aperion Verus Grand family. An enhanced 5.1 system is attained simply by adding an Aperion Bravus subwoofer. In addition to filling a room with sound, the Aperion Verus Grand family’s curved cabinets in gloss cherry-wood veneer or piano-black lacquer lend elegance to any décor.
