Aperion Audio Ups the Value in the New Aperion Intimus® Speaker Line

3 Nov 2011


Small Adjustments to Intimus Home Theater Speakers Produce Better Performance at a Price up to 20 Percent Lower

Portland, OR – November 3, 2011 – Aperion Audio, a direct-to-consumer maker of award-winning home theater speaker systems, today unveils the new Aperion Intimus line of home theater speakers. The revamped Intimus continues the award-winning sonic quality but increases the value with a price drop of up to 20 percent across the line.

To give the Intimus towers a sleeker overall look, Aperion Audio replaced the wooden base with cast aluminum feet. The cabinets are now wrapped in a premium-grade simulated wood finish. An increase in efficiency lets the new speakers achieve the same volume with less power. These small adjustments enable a minimum price drop of 15 percent across the entire Intimus line and a slight boost in performance as well.

“Given the recent economy, our design goal for the updated Intimus series was to deliver an even better value to end users without impacting the sonic performance,” says Ken Humphreys, Aperion’s lead speaker engineer and a 25-year-veteran of speaker and component design. “We looked at every element of Intimus to determine what it contributes to the user experience. For example, most home theaters now use LCD or plasma TVs, so we eliminated the magnetic shielding used to prevent speakers from distorting the picture on CRT TVs. We’re also proud of the redesigned base and a cabinet fit and finish that still surpass those for any speaker in this price range.”

Home entertainment enthusiasts can configure an audiophile-grade 5.1 home theater system for under $1,200 by combining a pair of Intimus 4T tower speakers, an Intimus 4C center channel and a pair of Intimus 4B satellite speakers for surrounds, and then underpinning the system with an Aperion Bravus 8A subwoofer. The Intimus 4T tower saves space with an 8-inch-by-8-inch footprint but includes dual 4” woven-fiberglass woofers and a 1” silk-dome tweeter in a front-ported enclosure. All Aperion Intimus speaker cabinets feature a curved-edge design and are available in high-quality simulated Medium Cherry or Black Ash.
