Aperion Audio today introduced the Aperion Verus Forte line of home theater speakers. The new Verus Forte delivers the immersive, true-to-life experience and sleek looks of the their Verus Grand series–but its petite stature and slender curves remind you this is the powerful younger sibling. The Verus Forte was engineered from the start for highly accurate sound reproduction that transports movie and music lovers into a performance.
The ASR tweeter also figures in a key innovation for the Verus Forte line: the Aperion PhaseSync Driver used in the center channel and bookshelf speakers. By combining the ASR and a woofer in a single space-saving package, the Verus Forte optimizes on- and off-axis performance in the smallest size possible.
The audio enthusiast can configure a well-matched high-performance home theater system by combining a pair of tower speakers, a center channel and a pair of bookshelf speakers for surrounds, all from the Verus Forte family. All Aperion Verus Forte speakers are housed in curved cabinets finished in gloss real cherry-wood veneer or piano-black lacquer.
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.

“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. 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.”
