I am jealous! Enjoy!
post #6122 of 6860
I HATE YOU!!!!

I ordered mine on Tuesday and won't get them until Monday. Not happy that the sales rep I talked to said they would be there by Sat. but he neglected to tell me that Fedex ground doesn't deliver on Sat.'s. Worst part is if you run the tracking number it says received here at 4am and was on the truck for delivery, just not today.

Hey have you put the rubber feet on the center yet? Curious of how much it tilts it up? I bought the center channel mounting bracket and was going to mount it to the front of my tv stand, which is just a big box with no shelves, so that it just hangs right below the tv but need it to til up a bit.
Also is the finish as reflective as it looks?

What receiver are you going to use? Do you also have an Amp?
Mine will be connected to my Yamaha RX-A3000 and my Emotiva XPA-3, so the Fronts and Center will on just the amp.

Have a good one.

The center channel has two curved rubber feet that sit on each side of the speaker. They don't fasten to it. The speaker just rests on top. And because the stands are curved, you can just rotate the speaker up or down as much as you need it. Because it's rubber it grips the finish on the speaker pretty well. I don't think it will vibrate loose, but have yet to use the speakers.

I got the Denon 4520, and will not be using any separate amps. For the sub I got a HSU VTF-15h, and that thing is a monster. I can't even get it up the stairs to the theater room. I'm waiting on a friend to come over and help.

When I finish setting up the Aperions today I'll try and post some photos.

I've been researching a home theater setup for some time now, and wanted some advice before I pull the trigger. My room is 17' x 26' with a 10' ceiling (its a combined living room/kitchen area), and I'll be sitting about 14 feet from the audio source. I will be listening to music (rock/metal) more than watching movies. As for gear, I'm leaning towards the Verus Forte Tower SD 5.1 system, but with the Bravus II 10D subwoofer instead of the 8D. I live in an apartment, so I can't crank the system up as loud as I would like that often, but I still want to be able to from time to time. This will be my first experience with really nice speakers, so I don't think I need to go with the Grand Towers, but would my room size or listening style (mostly hard rock/metal music) justify the Grands over the Fortes, or will the Fortes more than satisfy my needs? As for a receiver, I'm leaning towards the Marantz SR5007, but would there be any reason for me to go with the 6007? As far as power/audio quality they are pretty comparable, right? The 10 watt differential in power doesn't seem significant, but I don't have enough background to know for sure. Anything else I should be aware of for my first home theater setup?

Thanks in advance for the input!

However, that said, the unboxing experience was pretty cool. I unboxed the center channel, then put on my white gloves and slid the speaker out of the felt sack it was in. Very cool. I got the piano black versions, and the finish really is like a grand piano. I felt like I was holding a really high end musical instrument in my hands. Can't wait to hear how they sound.
I still have to open the towers, and bookshelf rears. Will do that tomorrow as I'm setting up the projector, screen, and equipment rack today. It's like christmas at my house, only santa wrapped all the presents in generic cardboard boxes.

Excellent, enjoy them and just let me know if I can help with anything!

Yeah sorry about that, the issue is that the Verus Grand Tower boxes are just too heavy for Home Delivery that runs on Saturday. Of course we should have let you know in advance. Hopefully you have received them now and are getting a chance to have some fun with them!

17X26 is definitely a good sized room, kind of on the line between medium and large in my opinion. So with that in mind I don't think the Verus Grand Towers would necessarily be overkill. The Fortes are definitely outstanding for music as well and I'm sure you would be happy with them, but if you did go to the Verus Grands you'll get a fuller sound through the midrange, more bass extension and a broader soundstage. The way I like to describe it is that they just have a more true to life presentation.

As far as the receivers go, no the 10 watts/channel doesn't make a big difference but what does is the higher quality power supply and transformer that you get with the SR6007. So the SR6007 should have more current capability than the SR5007. If you do end up going with the Fortes they are a little tougher to drive than the VGTs since they are lower sensitivity. I'd probably opt for the SR6007 in either case but I think it would be more of a necessity to drive the Fortes well.

I hope that helps but please let me know if you have any further questions, thanks!

Special shout out to Hicks. Great customer service. I went and visited the Aperion HQ this Monday. They have some great demo rooms and Hicks was very patient with my constant back and forth playing with different configurations. Those Verus Fortes... awesome, and small! Be sure to look at those dimensions because the perspective in the website pictures is starkly different from the real life experience. Fortunately, this didn't detract from the big sound they put out.

Trouble shooting question

I have a Aperion Verus setup with two verus towers as the fronts. Right front is giving me some kind of buzzing sound occasionally when listening to music. How do I troubleshoot something like this?
What I have noticed:
1. Not present during all music.
2. I never notice it during movies or games
3. Seems to be medium pitch type songs that make it happen
4. First noticed 2 weeks ago.


Denon AVR 3312CI
Verus Forte tower x2
Verus forte bookshelf x2
Verus forte center
Epik empire sub

Thanks!
post #6130 of 6860
Try switching the cables to the speakers. If the noise moves to the other speaker its probably amp related. If it stays with the speaker, its speaker related.

Good luck
post #6131 of 6860
Any thoughts on the Bravus 8A subwoofer? I searched the dedicated subwoofer forum pretty heavily, but there just wasn't much discussion about it. I was looking for something reasonably compact for a smaller room, nearfield use, and like the specifications plus overall fit and finish on the 8A.

Yes switching the speaker positions is a good troubleshooting step but if the problem persists please give us a call at 888-880-8992 and we will be happy to help you!

I think the 8A is a great little sub. If you've got a smaller room, say 250 square feet or less, it is a great bang for the buck product.

We just launched our Black Friday deals, including a 4C system for just $399 and $300 off a Verus Forte Tower system, check it out:

hey everybody, first i want to thank anyone for any help or opinions they give. I value everyones experience and knowledge.

My situation is I have a room that is 15x12x10 with the couch against the back wall

I currently have an OLD sony str-de845 pushing two def tech bp2004's wired into the LFE

I would like to either build a new system or piece in a system using the def techs I have and some new pieces, if i build a new system I would move my def techs and sony out to another tv in a bigger room, but this set up is for my media room, my listening habits are movies,gaming and music about a 50-25-25 split, I like clean sound that isnt tinny, I like low end you can feel if played loud enough, and I like immersive surround sound for HT, I would be using a 5.1 setup and possibly graduating into 7.1, the surround speakers will need to be mounted on the rear wall and I cant cut holes in ceiling as its a rental house.

If I use my current def techs I'm thinking 8040 or 8080 surrounds and one of the center channel units with internal amp? not sure if I need a SW with the def techs due to the built in sub? or maybe a new totally def tech system? I like to keep a system brand matched to keep the same timbre if possible

I came across the Aperion speakers browsing cnet and have seen nothing but 5 star reviews, I'm not sure if they are screened or if these speakers are really this great, I just don't know which model fits the bill, my nature tells me to just buy the biggest set there is and call it good..lol

any other suggestions like Klipsch or B&W? I am not able to actually listen to the speakers anywhere so I have to rely on feedback.

my budget is around 3k for a new system and new avr 4k if my arm is twisted, less if I can re-use my def tech 2004's

I am definitley buying a new AVR. my budget is around 650 for the avr. I've been looking at Denon,Marantz,Yamaha, Pioneer Elite and the new Sony str-dn1030. Any suggestions here?

If a good set of complete speakers is out of my budget I can piece in the front side and fill in the back later or vise versa

thanks for any help everyone!

Any experience with the 5Ts for HT use? We listen to a little music (5%), TV/Movie 85%, games 10%. I want to upgrade our stock Sony all in one 5.1 system that is 10 years old. We have a fairly large room (15 feet from speakers, 18 feet wide, high ceilings). I think the 5T/5C combo for now would work, but what do you folks think? At some point we'd upgrade to 5Bs for the Surround, and probably an 8D sub (have a powered Sub that came with the Sony system, and already upgraded the receiver to Pioneer VSX-818V). LMK

Hello there,

Your budget of 3K goes pretty far with us. You could get a pair of Verus Grand Towers a Verus Grand Center and a Bravus II 10D sub for $3196, then you could use the Def Techs as surrounds temporarily if you wanted.

Alternatively since your room isn't that big, you could also do a Verus Forte system and we happen to have this one in cherry on promo right now:

http://www.aperionaudio.com/systems/medium-rooms/verus-forte-tower-hd

You might think about swapping out the center channel to the Verus Grand but I think the rest of the system would meet you needs quite well.

If you did swap out the centers that would cost you an additional $391.

Yes, if you are at the 15 foot mark or so from the speakers a 5T/5C combo should be great for home theater. It's a little borderline for the range of the 5C, but it should be a big upgrade over what you have now so I bet you'll be really happy with that set up.

I hope that helps but please let me know if either of you have any other questions!

At least get the Grand Center.
post #6137 of 6860
Good evening and Happy Thanksgiving!

Quick question: Looking to do the following in a 13' x 11' x 10'' square room. Just would like to know if the surrounds would match the fronts and if the receiver I'm planning on getting would power them OK:

- Versus Grand Bookshelves
- Versus Grand Center
- Zona Wireless Surrounds (GAF on this. She's anti wires, pro changing around the layout of the room at least once every six months.)
- All hooked up either to a Marantz SR5007 or a Marantz SR6006 (if someone has a better receiver suggestion, my budget for the total system is $2500)

I'm sure I could do the 5B's with a 5C center and put the money into a new sub, but she loves the wood finish of the Grands, which isn't available on the 5B's.

As for a sub, I'll make do with my HTIB Onkyo sub. Not great, but it'll do until I save for a replacement.

A timely answer would be lovely as I'd like to take advantage of the Black Friday deal on the Zona's, but since it's the holiday, I totally get if I don't hear back for a little bi.

Thanks in advance!

Hello there,

The Zonas and the Verus speakers don't use the same drivers and aren't technically timbre matched, but they sound similar enough to my ears to be used together when the Zonas are used for surrounds. The most important speakers to match are the fronts and center, so mixing in a slightly different surround doesn't usually pose a problem since the surrounds play a more supporting role in your set up.

I hope that helps but please let me know if you have additional questions, thanks!
post #6139 of 6860
Hey all. I just built an acoustically transparent screen and that has opened up my options for speakers. I currently have a pair of Intimus 4T speakers that I was using for music. My room is 12x18 and I'm wondering if they would work well with the Intimus 5T centre channel. Or, since aesthetics don't matter, would a third Intimust 4T work as a centre channel? Thanks for the help.
post #6140 of 6860
3 of the same across the front would be best....that's what I have 3 towers across front with a ceiling mounted plasma and a "110 AT screen that drops down in front of everything...Seamless front stage-
post #6141 of 6860
OK cool. So for my room size, do you think the 4T's would be sufficient? I am running three beefy subs, so low end wouldn't be an issue. Again, thanks for the help.
post #6142 of 6860
When I had Aperions my first Towers were the 633s and then the 6Ts. It depends on what you can afford. I listen probably 70% HT and 30% music and run stereo direct for music 1/2 the time without the sub. Other 1/2 I listen to 5 channel stereo and sounds excellent. I have the same size room as you. My motto is go large or go home smile.gif.... No need to upgrade down the road. I never heard the 4Ts but if you have 3 subs you should be good to go.
post #6143 of 6860
Thanks for the help. I'm somewhat limited with my choices because I built a 2'x2'x11' cabinet below my painted on screen. This hid the speakers and looked really nice. Now, my screen is sitting on top of the cabinet, allowing me to put three bookshelf speakers upright, pro cinema speakers or floorstanders. The limitation and funny part about the floorstanding speakers is that I would have to cut holes in the top of the cabinet (not seen anyway since it's behind the screen) to allow the floorstanding speakers to pop out of the top of the cabinet (first thought was whack-a-mole). So, I would be limited to having the woofers up high and above the cabinet like the Intimus 4T/5T (sitting on little risers in the cabinet). I'm debating on selling my 4Ts and getting three 5Ts or going with the Ascend CMT-340-SE's across the front. Here's a crappy iPhone pic to show you what I'm up against:

post #6144 of 6860
Can you remove the cabinet? You then could put everything in a A/V rack. I purchased a nice A/V rack from Sears/KMart online for not a lot of money.. Matching the 3 fronts is the best solution either Towers or Bookshelfs. This article got me interested in matching all 3 across the front.

I agree with browninggold, if you are going to do a tower as a center channel with an AT screen then you really want all three speakers to be the same to give you seamless front soundstage, so I'd either do all 4Ts or all 5Ts.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but we are having trouble getting the drivers for that speaker, so it's looking more like March at the earliest as to when we will have them back.

Sorry about that, but thanks for your patience!

In my experience with Aperion (I have a full set of Verus Grand speakers that I love), there has only been one issue. And, take this with a grain of salt, because I have no idea how the company is run.

But, my experience has been that the ability to predict customer demand, and fulfill orders is the one thing Aperion is bad at. It seems things run out of stock, and are not available for months. Most companies "seem" to not have this issue. They are able to keep a steady flow of new product coming in as products are getting sold. It seems Aperion regularly run out of items, and it takes months to get them back in stock.

I had to wait a month for the black towers to come in stock, the dipole surrounds sold out, and, for the foreseeable future are not coming back in stock, and the Aperion rear speaker mounts were/are out of stock for over a month since I purchased my speakers.

This has been my one major gripe. The quality of the speakers is phenomenal, the sound is awesome, and the unboxing experience was the best i've had with speakers.

I'm sure the logistics are complicated when the speakers are made on the other side of the world, but it also seems like it's a solvable problem, and I hope Aperion gets better at predicting customer demand so that supply will maintain a steady flow.

I just finished putting together a basement playroom / theater with Verus Grand LCR and side surrounds. I had the "we're currently on backorder" issue with basically every item I purchased during the build, Aperion was not unique in this regard (the only exceptions were wires from monoprice and the power conditioner from amazon). By the end I was making jokes about it to my wife. I figured if this is going to last for a number of years, I'm fine with things taking a few extra weeks to show up.

(BTW: I _love_ the speakers...and my wife actually said "these speakers actually look pretty good". Coming from a wife who is also a graphic designer, I feel like this is high praise.)


edit: making it clear that my experience was that Aperion wasn't unique in having some items on backorder.
