- Crystal clear and precise sound!!
I accidentally discovered this website one day while going
through reviews on hometheaterreview.com and I became interested.
But buying something you never heard as well as not having
any local store that sells them is always a risk. However
30 day in-home trial with free shipping both ways is no
brainer. When the Speakers arrived they were boxed very
well. They come wrapped in the pretty nice velvet bag with
gold drawstrings. Hooking them up was very easy - 4 screws
and a speaker cable that's it. There is an awful lot to
like about Aperion Audio's Intimus speakers, especially
the cost. The build quality is excellent, as is the attention
to detail, such as threaded mounting points both bottom
and back, gold plated binding posts. The High Gloss Piano
Black finish is beautiful. It has such a perfect mirror
finish. The drivers are of high quality and the resulting
crystal clear and precise sound is one that is easy to love
and listen to for hours on end. My setup is 2 5T's, 2 4T's,
5C, 2 4B's, and the 8D.
- Great Speakers!
I went to the Aperion sound studio to listen to their speakers
before I bought the 5Ts. I almost purchased the 4Ts online,
but am glad I didn't - the 5T has a much fuller sound and
fills in some of the holes left by the 4Ts small footprint.
The price was extremely good, considering I got quotes for
high-end speakers from other places starting at $1,500 for
bookshelf 3 way (admittedly in European walnut). I didn't
realize how great these speakers were until I got them home.
The sound quality is so amazing it is addictive and from
hip-hop to piano concertos, they blow me away every time.
Many friends have asked me what kind of speakers they are.
They are unquestionably the best speakers I have ever owned.
I waited for a few months before I bought the subwoofer
and if I had it to do all over again that is the only thing
I would change - I would have bought it right then. Also,
the cherry finish looks much nicer in person than it looks
online. My advice would be to bring your favorite CD down
to the Aperion store some weekday afternoon (they aren't
open on weekends) and I guarantee you will be walking out
with a set of your own.
- Phenomenal value-priced speakers
After moving and fixing up a new home, I decided it was
also time to renovate my 12 year old stereo sound system
(no TV). My first instinct was to go to buy local so I previewed
a lot of different high end speakers at nearby audio equipment
stores. Some were good, but the great ones were out of my
So I started to look at the direct purchase companies and,
after reading numerous reviews and talking to the online
gurus, decided to give Aperion a try. I originally purchased
the 4Ts with the hope that they might meet my needs but
and they were a little bright in my 18X23 high ceiling listening
space. While I expect they would be fine in a smaller room,
I wanted more midrange and a lot more bass.
So I purchased 5Ts, a high quality subwoofer, and couldn't
be happier. These Aperion speakers are phenomenal. Everything
from Neil Young to Miles to Mahler sounds great. So clear,
so musical. And of course the finish on Aperion speakers
is gorgeous (I purchased the Cherry). Delivery? Took just
five days to arrive cross-country right before the xmas
Five stars to the speakers and five stars to the helpful

I was not sure if the 4C or 5C would work for me in a room
15X33. I have not been disappointed with the 5C. I have
the 5C paired with the 5T's and 8D sub and the sound is
superb. Music and movies are a whole new experience. Even
TV makes you just listen and remark that there are sounds
that were never heard before. I could never go back to basic
TV sound. I would recommend the 5C for anyone wanting great
center sound. Consider the sound value of the 5C paired
with the unbelievable customer support and you have a winning
- Chuck in S.C.
I was not sure if I wanted the 4T's or 5T's but got the
5T's and have not been disappointed. I thought the 4T's
may be a tad lacking in bass considering the size of room
being 15X33. The 4T's may have done the job but I am really
pleased with the 5T's. The bass and mid range are great
and paired with the 5C and 8D sub, I am extremely pleased.
Both music and movie sound is great. I am no audiophile
but I can't imagine not being happy with the 5T's unless
you are willing to spend over $1400.00 for a pair and then
there are the 6T's. Considering the free home trial and
the great expert advice (and believe me, if they have not
gotten tired of my questions then they will please anyone),
this is a product that is a no lose proposition for anyone
considering a superb sound system.
- Incredible Buy
I've had these long enough to be past the breakin period.
There is nothing original I can say except WOW these are
a steal. The fit and finish is incredible. Far above the
price level and even above much pricier units. The soundstage
is wide and fills our 15x18 livingroom. I can even turn
off my old subwoofer without ruining the effects of a Blu
ray DVD. The pitch is very accurate and doesn't feel like
it comes from a box. We have a 5C to go with these and will
complete the system with the dipoles and a new subwoofer
In a medium size room, at a very good price these absolutely
can't be beat. I went through every sound shop in our area
to find that out. The cherry finish and compact size sold
them for my wife who has been after me for years to get
rid of the old 15" studio monitors.
- Inconspicuous Power
I have had these speakers for a few months now and love
them. I initially was using the 632LR's for the front left
and right positions in my home theater. Eventually upgradeitus
struck and I wondered how a tower would compare. I should
preface this by saying that I loved and still loved the
632's (I now use them in a stereo setup in another room).
Nonetheless, the 5T's are a great step up. With the extra
woofer these speakers are excellent at filling the room
with sound. I listen to everything from TV sitcoms to big
budget thrillers to organ and jazz music and just about
everything else. The ability of these speakers to fulfill
all these roles whether supportive in a theater setting
or primary in a stereo setup for music is excellent.
On the style front, they are gorgeous speakers. The wood
finish is gorgeous and the rounded edges are are an excellent
touch. Their size is perfect. They are significant enough
to give a guy a feeling of a little power, but small enough
to not feel intrusive on the room.
Overall, these speakers have gone well beyond my expectations
with their ability to fill the room with any type of sound
and not feel overbearing. And like all of Aperion's speakers,
these towers are quite the beauties.
- What to expect with the 5T tower
Just want you to know if you have never heard an Aperion
5T, you're in for a treat. I owned B&W 602 and 603 and was
happy with them but always felt I was missing something.
Well I accidentally discovered this website one day and
when I read about the 5T I became interested. But buying
something you never heard as well as not having any store
near by that sales them is always a risk.
But talking with the Gurus and people on the forum here
helped me make the decision to try them. Heck they give
you a 30 day trial so that takes some of the risk out of
When the Speakers arrived they were boxed very well. I opened
them and they come wrapped in the pretty nice velvet bag.
My first surprise is that they were smaller then I thought
they would be... I think tower I think big. Actually I like
the size of the Aperion Tower they are the right size for
my room. By the way, I got the piano black and it is a great
Hooking them up were very easy - two screws and that's it.
The sound this speaker gives off is unbelievable, they are
crystal clear and precise. I hear things I have never heard
before with these speakers. They wiped the floors next to
my B&W's. They have a lot of power with no distortion.
For me this is the best speaker I ever bought and if you
like speaker with sound that is clear and has a lot of power
this is the speaker for you. I can only imagine what the
6T sounds like.
- Professional Grade
The 5T Tower Speakers are of excellent craftsmanship. The
High Gloss Black is beautiful, it has such a perfect mirror
finish. The speakers have some of the best sound I have
heard out of a set of speakers. The sound quality is so
high, I think I am in a theater every time I watch a movie!
- The towers rock.
The towers were the last installed speakers (All Aperion)
in our new media room. I purchased the blu-ray version of
Pearl Harbor. The sound is so good it is scary. Cheers to
- Great! Scott
Well, I received my 5 series speakers and absolutely love
them. The finish is excellent and more importantly, they
sound great. Extremely satisfied customer. Will buy from
you guys again... thanks
- Wonderful Sound
I had some bookshelf speakers on rather large ornate stands
and had some negative WAF feedback about the amount of space
they took up in the living room. Using careful measurements
I was able to convince her the 5T's would take up less space
and we would have excellent sound which was the most important
thing to me.
After getting them hooked up (12 gauge wire) and having
a very decent break period, I am very happy with the sound
and my wife is not saying too much about the footprint.
They do take up less space than the bookshelves with stands
are are very crisp and clean.
We watch TV and movies, and paired with a 5C center and
brand x sub (already in inventory) we are very pleased with
the upgraded sound and smaller footprint. When I listen
to music you can tell the difference between 2 and 7 way
stereo because the center takes a huge load off the L/R
speakers. Thanks Aperion! The 5 Series is an excellent choice
for mid-sized listening areas.
When I ordered these I was concerned that they wouldn't
be large enough for the room i was putting them in, but
with the 30 day in home trial period, and the ability to
trade them in and get credit towards a larger set, there
was no reason to not give them a try. What I have found
is a set of marvelous, unobtrusive tower speakers. The sound
fills my room perfectly, leaving very little to want. There
is little better than putting on a vinyl, turning out the
lights and being engulfed by the music.
- Fanastic Speaker
I have had the 5Ts for two weeks now and I must say I am
very happy with them. I have a 24 x 14 foot well insulated
room for movie watching and they easily fill the room with
sound. I had been debating between the 6 and 5 series but
I figured that with the 30 day trial that I could not go
In fact, I am happy with the experience on fronts - sound
quality, speaker build quality, and customer service quality.
These speakers look striking (I have the high gloss black)
and the customer service has been consistently great. They
staff is knowledgeable, courteous, and prompt. I have no
- Great Speakers!
After months of research, I bought two 5T speakers 15 days
back. Using them in my living room as front end speakers
with Onkyo TX-SR605 - connected to my TV, VCR, DVD, CD players
and even iPod. From all sources, these speakers sound great
in home theater or in Stereo. Did not get time to test all
the audio settings with the receiver but with minimum basic
settings these speakers sound really great. I have a plan
to complete my home theater system down the line and I will
buy these again. I didn't buy a sub at this time but even
without that the sound is great and fulfils my purpose.
We can hear lot of soft sounds now which we didn't hear
I also appreciate the aperion customer service - always
there - only one phone call away.
We just made our first foray into high-end audio with this
speaker and we are nothing less than fully impressed. Our
living room has become a sanctuary for movies, music, and
games! Great job Aperion, a lot of bang for the buck here!
- Clean sound all the way through!
Aperion really did go all out when they want their speakers
to look really nice. Even out of the box, these speakers
are amazing to look at. My buddy who helped me setup my
system even said the speakers are really something to look
To the sound, the 5T's really do have a clean and tight
sound coming from them at most frequencies. I did notice
the bass is somewhat lacking, but that is not why I bought
them. I bought a Bravus sub to handle that.
I really enjoy the performance these speakers can handle
at such a small size. I did not want to get huge towers
like the 6T's and take up a whole lot of room.
Very nice speakers!
- Happy Camper with the 5 Series
I have the 5T's as fronts with 5B's for surround and a 5C
center coupled with a Bravus 10D subwoofer. Being part of
a family makes a lot of sense to me; they complement each
other very nicely. And, as a plus, they look terrific. The
towers are a nice compact size but don't let their size
fool you; you get great sound out of them.
On top of a great product, I've found Aperion to be a terrific
company to deal with. They're helpful, knowledgeable and
don't treat us newbies like we're morons. Always a pleasure
to talk with. You won't regret your Aperion purchase; whether
it's the 5T or any of their other fine products.
- Amazing! Humberto
First impression out of the box is jaw dropping beauty.
Aperions seamless finish and design is so gorgeous that
even my girlfriend said "those are sweet!". Black gloss
for me with grills off =D
I am only on day two of listening and the sound is better
than anything I have ever heard. All across the board these
reproduce highs, mids an even very impressive lows with
ease. An they can crank and sound clean! From metal to jazz
you will think the concert is in your room.
Yes you will spend a little more now with this new line.
But you will NOT be disappointed. These will be the last
front speakers I buy for many many years.
Thanks to the Aperion staff for making this a very enjoyable
