Introduction to the Aperion Verus Forte Home Theater System

The history of Aperion Audio goes all the way back to the turn of the Century, the 21st Century that is. That is a fairly long history for an Internet-Direct audio company.

Aperion Audio hails from Portland, Oregon where they have built a reputation for high quality speakers and audio accessories. Their business model of direct sales over the internet holds the promise of high quality at value prices. This is one of their founding principles if not the founding principle for the company. And they don't sell cheapo, affordable speakers which is evidenced by Aperion's confidence to back their products with an attention-grabbing 10-year warranty.

Aperion is also rightfully proud of their customer service that starts with helping their customers pick the right system for their needs, to their very informative website sans the annoying pop-ups right on through to great communication, quick service and a very cheery bedside manner.

The system I'm evaluating here is from Aperion's all-new, upscale speaker line. The new line is dubbed the Verus and they offer improved drivers, crossovers and an upgraded look in either of two gorgeous finishes – high gloss cherry or high gloss piano black.

My review system is a 5.1 system that is built around the Verus Forte towers. These are the smaller of two tower models in the new speaker line.
