I've stopped reading Absolute Sound long time ago. Too high brow and pretentious for me.

I have also been considering SongTowers. It would be nice if one can have both the SongTowers and VGT in the same room for some critical listening comparisons. Of course that is not practical, as Salk speakers are made to order, so the wait time for the SongTowers will be long, and they don't have the Aperion's generous 30 day in-home trial period.

From what I've gathered, the SongTower is a very musical speaker, with very good sound image and base extension. So if you spend most of time linstening music, then it may be the speaker to get. I don't know how it'll perform in a HT system. Plus the fact that a HT system of Salk speakers will cost considerably more, makes me hesitate to pull the trigger on it.

So I've decided to go ahead of get the VGT and VGC, and if I like them enough, keep them. According to Matt, they'll be shipped next week.

How many times can you upgrade within the year?

At 10 feet most folks are pretty satisfied with the 5C and you may hear a little bit of a timbre difference between the 6C and 4Ts due to the difference in woofer size but they will integrate together fairly well.

OoooohhhhWeeeeeee, what's up with that...whats up with that?

Basically we are trying to get rid of all of the spammers once and for all, so we will be taking the current version of the software down and putting up a new one shortly.

Hopefully we be able to move all of the posts from the forum over to the new one.

I've ruled out the 6T and Verus Grand and am considering the 5T and the Verus Forte.

I'm thinking that the 5T would be the best choice due to the ports being on the front of the speakers allowing them to be positioned closer to the wall than the Verus Forte.

Am I correct in assuming that the 5T's will perform better closer to a wall?

I'm interested in the Medium Cherry finish and I noticed that the 6T is not available in that finish. Is that because the Intimus line is being phased out in favor of the Verus line? If so, would it be prudent to buy a 5C center channel speaker now while it's still available?

Finally, for a 20x13 room would the II 8D be the appropriate sub to use with the 5T's or would the II 10D be the better choice?

Thanks ... Tim

Hello Tim,

Yes ideally you will have two feet between the rear of the Verus Towers and the wall and since the 5T is back ported you can get away with one foot or so to the wall.

As for the 6Ts I do happen to have one pair left in the cherry finish so if you would like to order them please give me a call. But yes they are being discontinued in favor of the Verus Grand Towers. The other towers in the Intimus line will be around for a while.

In terms of the sub, the 8D can fill a 13X20 room if its closed, but the 10D will give you deeper bass so it is a bit of a question of preference and how much bass you want.

I hope that helps!

I have a very awkward living room and my Axiom M3s and Onkyo 605 just weren't cutting it in this new house (10 ft ceilings). Even the 15" Titanic Partexpress sub is getting somewhat swallowed up.

The dimensions are roughly 14X24 feet. The biggest upside is that there is no wall behind the couch, it opens into the kitchen/ eating area (open concept to the max!). I have a completely open/ uncluttered attic and basement for wire pulling but the TV resides on an exterior wall.

I have found exterior walls much harder to pull wire through due to the insulation.

I lucked into this house after the initial deal fell through post custom-build. I wish I could have found it before the sheetrock went up. Sigh.

Fortunately I sit only about 8-9 feet from the plasma so it's not a huge soundfield that needs filling.

I've ordered some Sanus pole stands for the sats, in wall wire (just in case), boom mic stand, and mic adapter for the Audyssey mic.

It's gonna be a late night Saturday!

Cool, thanks for the order and feel free to post your impressions of them once you have played with them a bit!

Thanks!

They have been discontinued in favor of the Verus Grand Bookshelf, I think I might have a pair in cherry in open box stock though, please give me a call at 888-880-8992 if you are interested in ordering them, thanks!

Gotcha,

So I am guessing the same will go for all the 6 stuff (C and T) and I should probly get on it if I want it?

That's correct the 6Ts in black that will be shipping in April will be the last batch.

6Cs in cherry are already done, I have enough in black to last for a couple months probably.

Do any of you guys have the Verus Grand speakers paired with a Marantz SR7005? I'm thinking of ditching my Onkyo TX-SR608 in favor for the Marantz. Will the receiver have enough power to push the Verus Grands?

We are pushing a pair of the VG bookshelves with an SR7005, and we actually replaced an Onkyo TX-SR876 when we went to the Marantz and to my ear it was an upgrade in terms of sound quality. So going from the 608 to the 7005 should be a big step up in the quality department.

Will the 7005 have enough power to run the Venus Grand towers bookshelf and center channel with out a problem?

Sure, as long as you aren't trying to fill a massive space, say over 500 square feet or so, and aren't trying to hit ridiculous SPL levels over 100 dB.

I should be ok, I live in an apartment. I only sit about 12 from my tv.

I have an unusual problem. My son spilled candle wax on one of my 632 LR speakers. I know--what was a candle doing on my speaker to begin with--but that's another story. Anyway I now have dried candle wax on the grill. I got most of the wax cleaned off the inside and the speakers themselves didn't suffer any damage. I was just wondering if there might be any miracle cleaning methods to get candle wax off the grill cover? Or even better would I be able to buy a replacement grill for a 632 LR?

Good for you about the shipping. May the Aperion VGT pipeline be open and the delays over. Yes, a side-by-side would be great. The closest to that I've come is reading Tom Andry's good reviews of the SST (Sept 2008) and the equally good one of the VGT, which we all know. I too am looking ahead to the VGT, which will replace my Energys.

I searched the thread for the intimus 6-LCR - not a lot of feedback in the forum about these. Does anyone have a good/bad experience with them? I was really battling with big bang system or a sleek install. I know I will give up much in the form of sound, but the 6t/verus grand or maybe even salk will take up a decent amount of space and obviously are 3-5(salk) times the price per speaker.

I really am just not sure if I want to have exposed speakers for my soon to be finished basement - and use these as a selling point when I sell my condo.

Will these perform? I have an onkyo 708 that will be driving them. and the room is about 10X22 after i get it remodeled.

I was planning on 3 6-LCR and 2 in ceiling, primarily for HT - but I do love gaming and lots of music.

I brought a co-worker by the Aperion sound room so he could hear the line up of speakers a while back....he was interested in maybe going with a in wall speakers as on option. We were very impressed with the sound from the 6-LCR when they went up against the tower speakers...this was before the introduction of the Verus line. I have (3) 6-IC speakers in the family room ceiling that I have been very happy with...but I would say the 6-LCR have better all around sound.

Hicks... You guys are killing me with taking away the 6t line. I just recieved my 6c the other day and was planning to get the 6t's around the hollidays. I have been drolling over these speekers for quite some time now. I've been working on the wife for about a year on the price and she was starting to warm up but just not there yet. Your new line is even more expensive than the 6t's so I don't think she will go for it. I guess I'll have to fine a used pair or something. By the way the 6c is beautiful and sound great.

Sorry about that, but I bet there will be 6Ts in open box floating around for a while from trade ups.

Feel free to give me a call to see what I have when you are ready, thanks.

I'm really close on putting together my next 5.1 setup. I recently purchased a Pioneer 5.0 setup to hold me over until I get my next permanent setup. I sold my Mythos Ones/Eight/BPX 5.0 and am using the Pioneer setup for now. Sounds great for the money, but like I said, it is a temporary set up to hold me over.

I was wondering if anyone had the opportunity to compare the Grand Verus to the Emotiva 8.3/6.3/erd-1 that is very comparable in price. I've narrowed down my next permanent 5.0 setup to one of these two setups. My Pioneer Elite 23 and elemental designs A2-300 are going to complete the setup. I know the Emotiva setup will need an amp (will order the XPA-5 if I go with them) Difference in price is $600 for the Emotiva WITH the amp. If I go with the Verus Grands, I can use just my receiver for now.

Last option, is going with Verus Forte towers, center, and bipole 4p rears. Much less expensive option, and I can get a new receiver if I wanted to. I can always upgrade to the Grands within the year.

This is going to be a gift from my wife for my 40th birthday this June. That's why I purchased the Pioneer setup to hold me over. I found a buyer for my Mythos setup and didn't want to lose the sale. The Pioneers will go in the family room for the kids to play video games, watch music videos, etc. Decisions, Decisions!!!!

I had a complete Emo setup. ERT-8.3s, ERM-6.3 and 4x ERD-1. I sold it all to go with the Aperions. So far all I have is the VGC and am waiting for the VGTs to be here end of this month hopefully. Also awaiting the release of DiPole/BiPoles for the surrounds positions. I may get some VGBs to hold me over.

I will share some of my initial thoughts:
I had a full Klipsch Ref-7 surround setup (RB-75s, RC-7, 4x RS-7s) prior to getting the Emos. I had Klipsch for years and was getting weary of the horns and wanting to try something softer. I felt the dialog from the RC-7 was very muddy and lacked clarity with most of the daily TV viewing source.

The Emotiva's are heavy and built like tanks. Although they have TONs of adjustments (tweeter, midrange, boost/cut, boundary comp etc.) in my environment, I am not sure I could really tell any radical differences in the variety of switch positions. They do sound very good, but I guess I kept feeling a bit under whelmed. The ERM was better for my ears then the RC-7 was, but I feel the VGC is much better. I have had it now for about two weeks so I have had a lot of time to form a solid opinion.

The VGC clarity and balance when it comes to dialog is very good. I don't feel like I struggle to discern the middle range male vocal dialog that tends to easily get muddy and vague. We use our system almost 95% for HT/TV viewing so I have not done any real music listening yet, waiting for the VGTs before I do that.

Finish: The Aperion Grands BLOW AWAY the Emos. No comparison whatsoever. The emo finish although good on paper is an odd duck. Its almost a matt black ordeal that easily shows fingerprints and other smudges. I much prefer a piano black gloss finish or a woodgrain with satin or high gloss finish instead. I have the Cherry VGC and am amazed at how nice it is.

The grills on the Emos are a typical magnet affair, but one frustration was lack of any indent, index etc. to get them on perfectly. You pretty much put them on and wiggle through trial and error until they look straight.

A couple of other notes, the Emos are 4ohm, make sure you have a capable amp. The Efficiency on the VGTs are much better then the 8.3s.

I will have more opinions once my VGTs get here... but so far I have no regrets.

One other thought... because of the Emo finish, I think long term re-sale when you want to upgrade would be more difficult then other similarly priced brands. You almost need to find an Emo fan to buy them from you. I got lucky with mine in that Emo raised the prices from when I purchased them and I got holiday discounts to boot. So I did not take much of a bath when I sold them. Had I paid normal prices, it would have been painful at just only having them a year. For comparison, when I sold my 4+ year old Klipsch Ref-7 setup, I was amazed at how well they kept value (well as much as anything in this hobby can).

My theater has been done for about 15 months now and I've been meaning to come here and thank the guys at Aperion for my speakers. I really can't say enough about the entire buying experience last year...fantastic customer service and great products. I'm lucky enough to live close so I was able to test things out in the demo rooms then drive away with my set-up! For anyone thinking about going Aperion, I can't recommend them enough!

Thought I'd throw out some pictures. Apologize for some of the poor quality (I'm no photographer) and as you'll see the dog and my 3 daughters share the room (they've taken over the bottom few shelves of the wall unit with their games). Onto the geeky stuff:

Speakers:
L/R: 5Ts
C: 5C
Surrounds: 5DBs
Rears: 4BPs
Sub: 10B

Receiver: Onkyo TX-SR707
Projector: Panasonic PT-AE4000U
Screen: 120 inch 2.35:1, homemade!
Media: 60GB PS3
Seating: Berkline Tangiers










Thanks again Aperion!

NICE room IQ22. My basement is finished and I have my other setup there: Def Tech BP7002, CLR2500, BPX, (2) Def Tech Super Cube 1 subs. Running it off a Pioneer elite 94. The aperion setup if for the living room. If I like the sound enough, I may sell off the Def Tech setup and have all aperion gear. I was a Def Tech fanboy, but just sold my Mythos setup because I got bored. Time for a change.

Yes they are...just a bit. In the 3rd picture you'll see due to the room that was previously there, there is a big window we were working around. I mounted the 5DBs as far back as I could before hitting the window frame. In a perfect world I would have killed the window but the boss wasn't hearing it ;-)

HI Jason, I am seriously considering your Verus Grand towers and possibly center, what shipping company do you use and are their any brokerage fees? Thanks very much. I am in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

Secondly, I currently have Rocket 850's and was trying to get an idea of how the Verus line sound, if any, are there any speakers out there that have a similar sound? I detest brightness and brittle highs, sold my RF-83 and Axiom M80 for this reason. The Rockets are pretty good but I think the design is a little long in the tooth now.

A friend has asked me to help him research speakers for his HT. He's never had a 5.1 system before and I told him I'd help. I came across Aperion for the first time just recently. It seems most of the posts here regarding the Verus line refer to the Grand Tower as opposed to the Forte Towers which are more in his price range. Does anyone have these and if so what are your thoughts about pairing them with a lower end Onkyo receiver for use in a small(ish) living room in an apartment? Thanks.

How is the sound on the Forte's??

Anything that must of us would have heard that you could compare them too?
Such as B&W, Martin Logan, Def Tech, Klipsch etc etc

Hello there,

We use FedEx to ship to Canada. Shipping itself is free, but we charge 14% of the total order to cover duty, taxes and brokerage so you don't pay anything extra at the border and they just show up at your door.

I think you would be hard pressed to find anyone who would describe the Verus speakers as bright, to my ear the highs from the Verus line are smooth and natural, so the highs should be quite a bit tamer than the RF-83s. I've heard the M60s and they didn't come close to the 6Ts in my opinion so I think the Verus Grand Tower should easily best the 80s. I've never heard the Rockets myself so I can't make that comparison.

I hope that helps but please let me know if you have any other questions.

An Onkyo 600 series or above receiver should push the Forte Towers pretty well in a small room. They are 90 dB sensitive so you don't need a ton of power to get reasonably good performance from them.
