I very much enjoyed my time with the Aperion 633-Ts, but in that time, I’ve found a few faults. For starters, there is the finish. While topnotch and exceedingly beautiful, the 633-Ts in the piano gloss finish were prone to showing dust and difficult to keep free of unwanted fingerprints.
Next, when played back at rock show levels, the 633-Ts had a tendency to get a bit fat in the bass, as well as losing a bit of composure in the tweeter. Also, at extreme volumes, the 633-Ts’ slight forwardness becomes a bit more accentuated. This slight downturn in sound quality never came at the expense of musicality, with which the 633-T’s were quite exceptional. The tubby bass and slight glare in the tweeter at excessive volumes is not a problem exclusive to Aperion; in fact, most speakers near or around the 633-Ts’ price suffer from similar ailments.
The 633-T Tower Loudspeakers from Aperion Audio are amazing overachievers when it comes to both music and movies, and they become all the more impressive when you consider that they can be had for less than a grand for the pair. Don’t believe me: Aperion will let you try them out in your own home for 30 days, risk-free. Don’t like ‘em, then send ‘em back, but I doubt you will. While not the most technical of speakers, in that they won’t go through your music collection with a microscope, they are a blast to listen to. They are fairly forgiving of source material and components, always allowing for the essence of the music or film to come through, and where they falter, they try to do so politely so as not to ruin your overall experience. The 633-Ts are also amongst the easiest speakers I’ve ever lived with day to day, as they don’t need to be coddled a quarter of an inch at a time in order to sound their best. They are, for lack of a better word, complete. If someone were to ask me, and I do get asked a lot, “Hey, I’m looking for speakers that sound good, no, better than good, that aren’t going to cost me a paycheck and a half that I can just listen to and enjoy. What should I buy?” My answer: try Aperion.
