Introduction

Enter Aperion Audio. Aperion Audio is a relative newcomer to the scene of direct-sales loudspeakers manufacturing. For those of you who peruse many of the home theater / audio websites and forums, you have probably been blasted by one of their "pop-up" ads (don't worry Audioholics doesn't do pop-ups). However, I do encourage a click on them at least one time. I was surprised to find a wealth of information pertaining to home theater and detailed product specifications on an internet loudspeaker company website.
