I see their ads everywhere and they seem to get some good reviews (could be bought w/ their ad campaign) but I have never heard of them. Does anyone own their speakers? Are they any good? Are they like the axiom speaker company?
Would also like more info on Aperion and Axiom for that matter. I'm planning a piece by piece speaker build up. I've got a Toshiba HD TV, HK 330, and some crappy speakers and surrounds. Will start the speakers off with a sub. HSU STF -3 in the next 3 months. Will then look to get fronts and center at the same time. I've looking between Energy, Axiom, Aperion, and Paradigm.
Please keep this post alive to get some feedback. Thx
Also look into Ascend Acoustics, they will let you do a bundle with HSU subs, where you can get a nice package discount but buy just a few pieces at a time. Their speakers are very well reviewed, especially the bookshelves (CBM-170).
Compare that sub to the SVS PB-12 ISD if you don't go with the Ascends, IMO it's a direct competitor to the STF-3. I'd read reviews to make sure you get the sub you're looking for, both have different strengths.
Have looked into the SVS PB-12 ISD and has been my second option. Thanks for the Ascend Acoustics option. I've read a few reviews and they seem very good for the price. I was turned off before because the look so cheesy. But the seem to match well with HK recievers and HSU subs. I had looked at them before but will look deeper.
Now enough of me stealing this thread. Let's hear more some on Aperion. I'm still curious because they are run out of Portland Oregon. Were I am from.
I've auditioned some of the Aperion line and compared it with the Axioms. It is a matter of preferrence at this point as they are both very capable speakers. So you have to listen, I think they still have the 30 day period.
Berny So they are a legit speaker company?? Price for price, you could compare them to more main stream companies like Def-Tech, Energy, Klipsch, etc.,
am also looking at the aperion towers with builtin powered subs. come highly rated on cnet. but dont know of anyone that has them or even heard of them. want to get a 2 channel receiver to go with it. was looking at the hk 3480 by harman kardon. any comments?
I've just completed my 5.1 system with all Aperion. I've had there S-12 Sub for 11months now and it rocks the house. Solid and tight. I've only had their 522d L/R for a week now and I'm extremely happy.I also picked up their VACC and their Dipole/Bipole surround speakers. I happy with them all. They are very legit and have a lot of things going for them. No sales tax. No shipping fees. Even if you decide to return them after your 30 day money back trial. They're also a 10 year warrenty on speakers and a 3 year warrenty on their amps. I believe they also have a Trade-in/Trade-up policy. Not to mention real Wood veneer and they're one of a few companies using the Diaural crossover. I highly recommend them. You can always check them out at www.AperionAudio.com and open up any questions on their forum.
