APERION AUDIO ADDS 6-LCR IN-WALL TO NEW LINE OF ARCHITECTURAL SPEAKERS

The New Intimus 6-LCR In-Wall Home Theater Speaker lends award-winning Aperion Audio sound quality to the wall mounted flat panel TV experience

By Gary Reber


Aperion Audio, a direct-to-consumer manufacturer of award-winning home audio and home theater speakers, began shipping the newest addition to their in-wall and in-ceiling speaker portfolio, the Aperion Intimus 6-LCR In-Wall Home Theater Speaker, which has been designed to deliver an exceptional home theater sound experience for flat panel TV viewers while allowing maximum installation flexibility. The versatile 6-LCR, which can function as a left, center or right channel, creates a seamlessly integrated front soundstage.

“We enjoyed the challenge of producing in-wall speakers that would rise to the level of sound quality found in our floorstanding and bookshelf speakers. These speakers are expressly designed for home theater application - the goal being to maximize vocal intelligibility nd overall naturalness of cinematic sound. As one example, the purpose of the driver configuration is to direct the midrange energy toward the listening zone in order to reduce the reflections which manifest themselves as delayed arrivals, consequently smearing the midrange detail,” said Ken Humphreys, Aperion's Lead Audio Speaker Engineer, one of the founders of Speakercraft, and an original innovator of in-wall
speaker technology.

“Our new 6-LCR was designed in response to our customer's frequent requests for an in-wall speaker that delivers premium sound with a clean appearance in line with today's flat panel display designs. Its 2½-way design, featuring two woofers, gives outstanding performance comparable with a cabinet speaker, but with the sleek look that only an in-wall can provide,” said Aperion Audio Home Theater Guru and customer liaison, Jason Hicks.

Each Intimus 6-LCR speaker contains an aimable 1" audiophile-grade silk-dome tweeter that enables the listener to direct higher frequencies toward the listening position - crucial in authentic reproduction of dialog. The custom dual 6.5” long-throw woofers are constructed of strong and lightweight woven fiberglass, offering an agile, accurate response that supplies the superior bass and midrange performance essential for the creation of an enveloping, large-scale cinematic experience. In addition, the +/- 3 dB bass and treble equalization switches empower the user to customize the sound to fit even the most challenging of acoustic environments. Whether
it's installed horizontally or vertically the Intimus 6-LCR In-Wall Home Theater Speaker showers the listener with immersive sound.

Reason #9 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:

WSR is a terrific resource for anyone interested in keeping up with the state of the art in home theatre. It's the only publication I know of that dedicates not only significant space to discussing upcoming trends, but considerable time and effort is spent pushing those trends towards realization. The home theatre cruise, Joe Kane's technical discussions, D-Theater, and in the latest issue, the movement towards establishing a surround sound recording standard are just a few examples of WSR's leadership. Greg Rogerís review of the Sharp XV-Z12000 made me want to run out and buy it, but last year I bought the Sony HS10 projector (sight unseen) purely on the strength of his thorough, detailed review. I have been very happy with my purchase. It is impossible for me to evaluate all of the pros and cons of a piece of equipment by looking at it in a home theatre shop. It just takes too long to become familiar with operational quirks and to judge how things might be different in my home than in the retail environment. I have bought other expensive equipment based largely on your reviews. WSR is to be commended for dedicating the space in its pages to such thorough reporting. Lastly, your Web Site is topnotch. I use it regularly to keep up with industry news and to look up past equipment reviews. It serves as my filing cabinet for a wealth of HT information. Keep up the great work.
