Aperion Audio, the first audio company to provide a 30-Day Totally Risk-Free In-Home Audition, announced the introduction of their new Intimus 533-T Tower Speaker. Designed to deliver beautiful music and dramatic theatrical sound with authority while taking up no more space than a bookshelf speaker on a stand, the 533-T will debut at the Primedia Home Entertainment Expo, in the Aperion Audio suite 424. The 533-T is a powerful speaker with a small footprint for $750 per pair – enabling Aperion’s customers to build an attractive and inspiring system that won’t break the bank or offend their interior designers.
“The new 533-T tower speaker is a design that Aperion has been working on for quite a while now, and we believe it has the potential to become our best selling product.” said Robert Holo, head of product development for Aperion Audio. “It has very tasteful lines, and its unobtrusive size will make a lot of people happy. The 533-T excels at voices and acoustic music, but make no mistake – this baby can rock. It is an incredibly fit and graceful athlete of a speaker, and I could not possibly be happier with how it turned out. Ken [Humphreys, Aperion Audio’s Sr. Design Engineer] really outdid himself on this one.”
1-inch Audiophile-Grade Silk-Dome Tweeter
A silk diaphragm means that this speaker sings. Silk gives remarkable detail, but also plays smooth and natural. Aperion Audio’s audiophile- grade 1-inch tweeter features ferrofluid cooling for high power handling and smooth response and a high quality heat sink, which means less distortion. Along with magnetic shielding, and a linear response faceplate for better horizontal dispersion, this tweeter is the high point of the speaker. Literally.
Mineral-Filled Polypropylene 5.25-inch Midrange
Aperion Audio’s 5.25-inch mid-woofer is the heart, soul and voice of the 533 -T loudspeaker. The cone is made of a mineral-filled polypropylene material which provides resonance dampening and allows it to handle the demands of higher midrange frequencies. The loving embrace of a butyl rubber surround enables a compliant yet well-damped suspension. Last but certainly not least, the magnetically shielded driver boasts a solid polymer frame, super flat frequency response, and a deep commitment to keep you amazed for years to come. If this all sounds like Greek to you, just know this – your ears will be delighted, and the pleasure centers of your brain will rejoice.
Each 533-T speaker is made of rock solid 1-inch thick High Density Fiberboard (HDF) to eliminate unwanted resonances within the cabinet. Each speaker is finished in either real cherry wood or high gloss black lacquer finish. This first-rate cabinetry unites the acoustic-damping qualities of only the most expensive loudspeakers with a furniture-grade finish so handsome your coffee table will be jealous.
HD-X3 Impedance Leveling Crossover Technology
Patent pending HD-X3 crossover technology levels the impedance load across the entire frequency range creating a remarkably flat frequency response and eliminating the detrimental effects of resistance introduced by long runs of speaker wire.
All drivers in the 533-T Speaker are magnetically shielded to protect video monitors from magnetic interferences, allowing placement on or near viewing devices.
5-Way Gold-Plated Binding Posts
Each 5-Series Speaker comes standard with audiophile quality gold-plated five-way binding posts, and accepts banana plugs (4mm), spades (3/8-inch), pins or bare wire to provide pure signal transfer and ultimate connection flexibility.
Floor Spikes and Footers
Included with each 533-T is a set of brass floor spikes and footers. The spikes raise the tower off the floor, giving you tighter bass by de- coupling the cabinet from the floor. Footers can be added for hard-floor surfaces so the spikes won’t scratch your floors.
Acoustically Transparent Grille
An acoustically transparent grille is included with each speaker to protect the drivers from inquisitive kids and pets. The grille cloth is sonically invisible so speaker performance isn’t compromised.
Totally Risk-Free In-Home Audition
All Aperion Audio products are sold direct and include the Totally Risk- Free In-Home Audition that allows every customer to audition the speakers in the space in which they will be used. Aperion Audio provides free shipping both ways, free technical support with live chat, email, and toll-free calls, a free customer care kit including an SPL meter to properly calibrate the system, a comprehensive 10-year warranty, and a full-value one-year trade up program.
