Aperion Audio Verus II Grand Floorstanding Loudpseakers Announced

Aperion Audio just announced their newest flagship floorstanding loudspeakers called Verus Grand II Tower that continue the company’s tradition of offering audiophile sound quality at a budget price point. These 65 lbs behemoths stand almost 4-feet tall and replace the original (same sized) Verus Grand speakers first introduced in 2011, but offer a few key upgrades.

The Aperion Audio Verus II Grand Tower speakers get an entirely redesigned crossover network. The company says the new crossover lends to a more neutral and better balanced frequency response along with smoother phase integration across drivers. Aperion has also upgraded internal connectivity with larger gauge wiring to the tweeter, midrange, and woofer drivers. On the exterior, the company replaced stamped metal jumpers between speaker binding posts in favor of high quality 12-guage wire jumpers.

Verus II Grand Tower also comes with a completely refined version of Aperion’s proprietary in-house tweeter. The new patented Axially Stabilized Radiator (ASR) tweeter retains the anchored center point of the original ASR design while adding a new wishbone waveguide. Aperion says its new ASR has a more uniform high-end frequency response and offers broader dispersion across a listening area.

Each floorstanding speaker weighs 65 lbs. and is 43.5-inches tall. It features one tweeter, two 5-inch woven Kevlar woofers, two 6-inch woven Kevlar woofers. Sensitivity is measured at 92dB and can play 45 Hz to 20 kHz, +/- 3dB.

Features

1. New Patented Axially Stabilized Radiator Tweeter
Patented Axially Stabilized Radiating tweeter retain the anchored center point of the original ASR tweeter to better control break up modes. Additional design refinements coupled with the new “wishbone” waveguide produces better output, more uniform frequency response and broader dispersion across its operating range.

2. Redesigned Crossover Network
Fine-tuning of the crossover networks has resulted in a smoother, more neutral and better balanced frequency response across the entire audible range. You’ll experience better phase integration between the tweeter and midrange drivers resulting in a cleaner, more open sound in the transition regions.

3. Larger Gauge Internal Wiring
Upgraded wiring from 18 gauge to 16, 14 and 12 gauge wiring supporting the tweeter, midrange and woofer respectively. The outcome is more “headroom” in higher power applications.

4. High Quality 12 Gauge Jumpers
The stamped metal jumpers have been replaced with 12-gauge wire jumpers between the binding posts creating more surface area for signal flow. This results in lower resistance, lower impedance and overall better transfer of signal at the speaker’s terminals.

Price and Availability
The first shipments are expected to arrive late January early February 2016 for about $2,500/pair in glossy piano black or cherry finishes.
