Cherry Wood Aperion Verus Forte Center Channel Speaker



The Verus Forte Center Channel speaker handles the center of attention like it was made for it—which, of course, it was. We kept in mind that most of the action in a movie or music video takes place smack dab in the middle of the screen. To make sure you hear every sound wave—and every ripple—our crew put on thinking caps (which double as rain hats in soggy Portland), then got to work. The upshot: our new Aperion PhaseSync driver, which couples the woofer with our patent-pending Axially Stabilized Resonator™ tweeter to keep the speaker as small as possible without sacrificing a bit of sound.

The Verus Forte Center can also handle being the center of attention, and why not? You’d be in the limelight too if you looked this good. We’ve enclosed the speaker in a slim, curvaceous cabinet, then wrapped it in a glossy finish that adds shine to any room. And though this speaker screams high-end, you’ll find the price makes it easily within reach.

Okay, so I have owned this speaker for a couple months now. I promised not to make a review until after I "broke it in". Usually I don't even believe in breaking in, but I wanted to give the most helpful review I could. When I first listened to these speakers I have to be honest the sound wasn't as "open" as I had hoped (like it was straining or hard to drive or something or other along those lines). I liked the sound but it wasn't exactly what I was hoping for. After a few weeks though I just immediately fell in love with the sound. Voices sound very natural. In fact, I am one of those guys who really prefers listening to stereo music in 2 channels. But, with this center I am actually find myself turning on multi-channel stereo because of the extra live-ness of the vocals. From what I can tell it actually improves the soundstage rather than harming it. Others might disagree completely with that statement but that is what I have noticed from my own listening. Anyways, I recommend this center. Oh, and two more things, customer service is great at Aperion and the finish on the speaker is amazing.

My husband and I drove down to the Aperion Showroom in February 2012 and listened to their forte and grand forte speakers. This center channel speaker sounded crisp, clear, full and looked beautiful. Once we heard it, our minds were made up. We have had it for a couple of weeks now and have no regrets whatsoever! Thanks to Jason for all his help!

Intro:
The Verus Forte Center is the first legitimate center channel that I've listened to in my home theater setup. There is a marked increase in voice and dialogue detail, enhanced imaging over running just left and right speakers, and the VFC contributes to a much more immersive and enjoyable listening experience!
Setup:
Currently, I'm running a pair of Verus Grand Bookshelves as my main left and right speakers in my living room. I have them paired with a HSU VTF-15H subwoofer for the low end (crossed over at 80hz) and these are mated to a Marantz 6005 receiver. My listening area is about 13ft by 13ft, but the room is about 21 feet long by 13 feet wide. The VFC is added to this, and crossed over at 80hz as well.
Listening Impressions:
Music:
The VFC improves upon an already solid foundation created by the VGBs in my system. Vocals are even more natural sounding now! Voices like Diana Krall and Melody Gardot sound amazing! Imaging is even helped as well giving much more pinpoint accuracy not only to the vocals, but to instruments and sounds across the entire soundstage! The VFC seems to blend very well with the VGBs.
Movies:
Wow, dialogue is a lot cleaner! I thought I had it good with just the VGBs! My wife and I are spending a lot less time rewinding the movie to figure out what was said! Dialogue in movies is great, very clear and detailed. Panning sounds from left to right or right to left are seamless, and the added detail of the on screen effects is really cool to experience!
Conclusion:
This is a great little center channel that really adds to the music and movie experience! As far as I can tell there aren't really any shortcomings with this speaker. It never sounded congested and I didn't hear it strain. If you are looking to add a center to your system, this would be a great choice!

Pro Reviews For Verus Forte Center Channel Speaker

Big Picture Big Sound Gives the "Biggie" Award to the Verus Forte Speakers
"In a world where we rely on communicating through third parties, it's nice to see a company that actually wants to rub elbows with its customers. Maybe they just love to be loved, because Aperion's Verus Forte Speaker Line has exactly the types of products you'll want to call them up and thank them for."

"...you can be assured that the value that these speakers offer is already exceptionally high, so the cash you invest in a Verus Forte system is indeed money well spent."

- Rachel Cericola, Big Picture Big Sound, May 2011

Digital Trends "Editor's Choice" for the Verus Forte Tower System
"9 out of 10. Due to their excellent musicality, large sound in a small footprint and high value, the Verus Forte Towers earn our Editor's Choice Award."

"...the center channel does a pretty remarkable job. We isolated the center during some of our multi-channel listening sessions and we were very impressed with its robust and tonally accurate sound. Musically, the center channel holds up very well in comparison with its towering brothers. As a dialogue machine, the Forte center channel puts the movie track right in your face. Dialogue was intelligible and never got buried by the surrounding tracks. In small and medium sized rooms, the Forte center is all the center channel one is likely to need. Larger rooms might benefit from a larger model of speaker, but even in those cases, the Forte should be able to satisfy all but the most critical of listeners."

"Aperion's Verus Forte speakers, particularly the floor-standing tower model, offer an appreciable improvement over the company's already solid Intimus offerings. The differences between the two lines is most obvious in the high frequency section where the tweeters higher-power handling and lower frequency capabilities serve to make the speakers sound articulate, accurate and detailed enough to satisfy just about any critical listener. Their more stylistic cabinets add to the speaker's refinement and make a pleasant statement in a room. At $495.00 each, the Verus Forte Tower represents a very solid value, if a bit more expensive than the company's Intimus line. We think these speakers will appeal to budget-audiophiles who want a speaker that challenges the law of diminishing returns by offering an incredibly refined, full bodied sound in an attractive package under the $1k price point. Add to the towers a very capable center channel and surrounds and you've got a surround speaker system that will most certainly be the envy of your friends and neighbors."

I received this in Oct '13, it is part of my new home theater system. I wanted a center speaker that was paired to my VGBs. The sound is more than I expected. A center speaker is primarily for voices in movie and TV sound tracks , and the VGC makes the actors sound as if they are sitting on you TV stand speaking their dialog to you. While watching an episode of STTNG, Patrick Stewart's baritone voice seamed to just bellowed out with so much resonance. This is their most expensive center speaker, and you get what you pay for, (5/25/14)

i was blow away with the aperion grand verus center channel, with my sonus faber venere 2.5 towers is the perfect combination, this center it's 10 out of 10 so far so good, this center blow out of the water the venere center channel i had, the venere couldn't keep up with the towers at references levels, losing it's composure sounding harsh and shrill, but the verus grand was effortless, sounding clean, clear, and BIG, without compromise any sound quality, simply amazing.

It's going on roughly a year now that I've been using the Verus Grand Center, and I can't imagine that I would have been happier going with anything else in this price range - I demo'ed a handful of competitors that had high praise on various AV forums and websites, and none of them were at the level of the the Aperion gear to my ears.

The sound is excellent - dialogue comes through clearly in movies, something I always had complaints about in previous systems.

The fact that Aperion is so involved in the various AV communities and is so willing to step in and help answer people's questions is another bonus that makes choosing their products a no brainer. Excellent price, excellent sound, beautiful finish, and a stand up company. Not sure you can ask for anything more!
Thanks Aperion! David

Received my Verus Grands yesterday afternoon, and spent the better part of the evening setting them up and calibrating the system. I haven't gotten a lot of listening time yet, but I'm loving what I'm hearing so far. My previous setup was a 9 year old Onkyo HTIB which, at least as far as HTIBs go, was pretty good. But we're talking night and day between them and the Aperions. Especially on the high end, I'm getting a lot more clarity and detail that I simply never noticed before. I watched the opening car chase scene of "Quantum of Solace," and holy crap! I was literally gripping my armrests as the VGs every visceral detail of the flying bullets and screeching metal as car after car was destroyed.

My Blu-ray of "It Might Get Loud" is currently on loan, so I popped in "White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights" instead. I tell ya, if these speakers can keep up with Jack White on the guitar (and they can), there's nothing they can't do.

After that came the "Within Temptation: Black Symphony" Blu-ray, and was once again floored by this immense wall of sound coming from the VGs. And again, I kept hearing tons of new details and even whole instruments that I had not heard before. The band, the orchestra, the singer, and the crowd were all represented well with excellent definition so nothing was lost.

Suffice it to say, I will definitely be recommending Aperion Audio to anyone who will listen to me. Even if they might not be able to afford Verus Grands like mine, Aperion certainly has a diverse lineup that should be able to fit nearly any budget.

Oh, and my system:

After auditioning my Verus Grand Tower (VGT) speakers and seeing how amazing they sounded, I decided to order the Verus Grand Center (VGC) speaker simply out of curiosity to see if it was as every bit great as the towers. Also, my current Infinity center channel sounded so anemic when sounds would transition between the VGTs and my center...totally distracting!!
When I got my package, I was utterly surprised at the size of the box. The VGC also came wrapped in velvet, gorgeous piano black finish, and this thing is heavy!! The design of it is also magnificent!! Same curves as the VGTs; just a beautiful piece. My only regret is that its huge... It does not fit in front of my big screen on the TV stand. Did I say its HUGE!!
So I just placed it on a couple of speaker stands I had from my previous Infinity speaker set; I really need to find a permanent solution, somewhere to put it, I may have to buy a new TV stand/cabinet all together. sigh
I decided to played some music through it first. I was utterly surprised at how great it sounded!! It was very similar to the VGT, but with slightly less bass, but still bounds and leaps above my old Infinity center which compared to the VGC sounds hollow and tinny. Music sounded great through the VGC...typically, center channels do not handle music well in terms of the full dynamic range of music; the VGC did amazing!!!
When I watched a few movies through it, one was Cowboys and Aliens, the voices sounded natural and authentic; had weight behind the voice... unlike with my previous speaker it sounded small even though it had two 5.25 drivers. For the first time, the action sounds coming from the speakers (VGT and VGC) had me jumping out of my seat!!!! Totally adds a new dimension to movie watching!!
I was so impressed with the Verus Grand Center that I just couldn't wait and ordered a set of Verus Surround speakers...
I highly recommend the Verus Grand Center channel speaker, but be forewarned, its huge!!!
Although, I now see, with size, comes great sound... :P

Starting out with only thoughts of making sure I upgrade to a timbre matched center I didn't think much about it. I figured that if the new VG center was as good as the 6C I would be more than happy with it.
The new Verus Grand Center has the same beautiful shape and lines of the rest of the Verus line.The one new functional use for the shape of the VGC is the ability to angle the speaker for optional positioning. The included feet allowing you to angle up or down for matching your listening position and placement.
After doing a large majority of my listening just on the VGTs I decided to make sure to do some VGC listening. At first I didn't hear any major differences between 6C and the VGC. I started with an A/B comparison between the 6C and the VGC. This really pointed out a few major differences to me.
The VGC really benefits from the new Aperion tweeter. Dialog is very detailed and accurate. I found that it presents no listening fatigue at all. The mids definitely benefit from the new tweeter and mid driver. I feel that the mids are now more open and less congested.
When presented with complex passages with dialog and special effects the VGT presents every detail without effort. This was a very welcome addition to my movie watching experience. --- Now to upgrade my surrounds.
Aperion offers yet another wonderful product at an affordable price. The new Verus line will definitely be in my home for some time.
Excellent! Andrew I.

I got the Verus Grand Center along with 2x Verus Grand Bookshelves and an SVS sub to make a 3.1 system for our living room. Looks really counted given that it was in such a public room and it came down to the Aperion Verus' and B&W CM series for more than 2x the cost. I am so glad I gave the Aperion's a shot because not only do they look just as good as the B&W's but they sound better!
In particular this is due to the Verus Grand Center. The finish is amazing. The lines are beautiful. And the sound is incredibly crisp and clear. My parents were in town this weekend and were incredibly impressed with the clarity of dialogue from Hugo (and they are coming from a very high-end M&K system which they bought primarily because of the center channel). I actually like the size of it too - it gives a commanding presence but because of the rounded lines looks more like a piece of furniture than another boxy speaker.
Overall my new speakers have been a huge hit, but the Verus Grand Center has been the definite highlight of all the components.
