Aperion Audio just launched the Aperion Verus Forte line. The new Verus Forte delivers the sleek looks of the Verus Grand series--but its petite stature and slender curves remind you this is the younger sibling. The Verus Forte was engineered from the start for highly accurate sound reproduction, the company claims.
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 reportedly optimizes on- and off-axis performance in the smallest size possible.
The audio enthusiast can configure a 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.
