Aperion Audio unveils the Aperion Verus Forte home theater speakers

aperion audio unveils the verus forte home theater speakers verusfortebookshelfglosscherryThe Verus Forte was engineered from the start for highly accurate sound reproduction that immerses movie and music lovers into a performance.

“We worked to produce uncolored, authentic sound in a small form-factor speaker by achieving a flat frequency response, a power response that slowly and evenly rolls off toward the highs and the lowest possible distortion,” says Ken Humphreys, Aperion’s lead speaker engineer and a 25-year-veteran of speaker and component design for the audio industry’s most respected brands. “The Axially Stabilized Radiator tweeter we developed specifically for the Verus family handles a range beneath most tweeters, supporting the mid-range driver so the mid-high frequencies are as crystal clear as those at the top of the range.”

Like the Verus Grand series, the new Verus Forte line is a high-end complement to Aperion Audio’s award-winning Aperion Intimus line of home theater speakers.
