Aperion Verus Grand line of home speakers released

Aperion Verus Grand Tower Home Theater Speaker System

The speakers were unveiled at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in Denver, CO. The Verus Grand family is a high-end complement to the company’s Aperion Intimus line of home theater speakers.

“The goal for the Aperion Verus Grand line was to create an accurate, uncolored, lifelike experience,” says Ken Humphreys, Aperion’s lead speaker engineer and a 25-year veteran of speaker system and component design for the audio industry’s most respected brands. “To do that, our team built the entire speaker system from the bottom up, engineering each component for maximum sonic impact while keeping the cost in reach of most home theater audio buffs.”

“A key part of the solution is our new Axially Stabilized Radiator tweeter, which takes the burden of reproducing upper-mid frequencies off the mid-range driver,” Humphreys adds. “That allows each driver to do the job it does best. The result is wider dispersion for an expanded soundstage and lower distortion to boost clarity.”

Aperion Verus Grand includes:

  • 3-Way, Sealed Enclosure design
  • One 1″ Aperion Axially Stabilized Radiator silk dome tweeter
  • One 4″ Woven Kevlar Mid-range driver with Aluminum Phase Plug
  • Two 6″ Woven Kevlar Woofers with Butyl Rubber Surrounds
  • Curvilinear cabinet with compound angles and internal bracing
  • Furniture-grade gloss cherry wood veneer or gloss piano black finish
  • VoiceRight phase correction switch for bass optimization
  • 5-Way Gold-plated Binding Posts
  • Acoustically transparent cloth -covered metal grille


Pricing for the new Aperion Verus Grand line of home theater speakers is $1,798 per pair for the Verus Grand Tower; $699 for the Verus Grand Center; and $598 per pair for the Verus Grand Bookshelf. Pre-orders are now being accepted, and the system will ship on October 30, 2010. A 10-year limited warranty covers all defects in material and workmanship. The product also comes with free shipping, free lifetime support and a 30-day in-home trial.

Sonos’ new Era 100 and Era 300 wireless speakers go all-in on spatial audio and Bluetooth
Sonos Era 300 and Era 100 side by side.

Sonos has officially unveiled two new wireless smart speakers -- the $249 Sonos Era 100, and the $449 Sonos Era 300. While the Era 100 is effectively a new version of the aging Sonos One, which it replaces, the Era 300 is an entirely new type of speaker for the company, with six drivers (including an up-firing tweeter) and compatibility with spatial audio formats like Dolby Atmos.

The leaks pretty much nailed it. Both speakers will be available on March 28 in 26 countries including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the U.K., Ireland, Germany, and Australia, with preorders beginning March 7.

Upgraded with the same sound-absorbing metamaterial tech found in several of its high-end speakers, the R Series Meta aims to bring this premium sound to a broader audience with its more affordable price point.

If you've ever perused the KEF website and drooled over the company's unique-looking $35,000 Blade One Meta speakers, its $22,000 Reference 5 Meta towers, or even its $7,000 LS60 Wireless powered speakers, KEF's R Series Meta could be a much more affordable way to get in on the same Metamaterial Absorption Technology (MAT) found in those speakers.

Apple HomePod mini vs. Google Nest Audio

The Apple HomePod mini is arguably the best HomeKit hub on the market, offering impressive audio quality, an eye-catching design, and a surprisingly affordable price tag. If you’re not sold on HomeKit, however, Google Nest Audio gives it a run for its money. Google’s popular smart speaker clocks in at the same $100 price tag while offering access to Google Assistant -- making it easy to communicate with the rest of your smart gadgets.

If you’re in the market for either of these products, here’s a closer look at everything offered by the HomePod mini and Google Nest Audio.
Design
The next generation of the HomePod takes on an almost perfectly spherical shape versus the cylindrical shape of its predecessor. It looks somewhat similar to the Amazon Echo, but the elegant design comes as no shock -- Apple has always excelled at making attractive products.
