Introduction

Aperion Audio's Intimus 4B Harmony SD Speaker System may be a lot to pronounce all in one breath - but it may be worth it, if that means you'll get to put them into your listening room. These speakers are incredibly well-built, and do very well in a near-field environment. They are beautiful to look at and the new Bravus dual 8-inch subwoofer leaves a good impression. For those with larger rooms, look to one of Aperion's bigger systems to give you more dynamics and a better fit.

With Aperion's no risk policy (paid shipping both ways if returned within 30 days) and a ten year warranty on their products is very impressive as well.

A nice alternative for those who feel Orbs and Nanosats are too small and full bookshelves too large.
