Aperion Audio Announces All Wireless Intimus 4T System


Renters, or anyone living in an older house, are painfully familiar with the problems associated with installing a proper surround sound system. There have been wireless systems around for a while, but most are targeted at the HTIB buyer and still require wired audio runs for the left, center & right main speakers – which isn’t always possible. If you fall into this group, Aperion Audio just announced an all wireless 5.1 (power is required for each speaker obviously) in an AVR optional home theater kit.

Normally I’d have to check my enthusiasm for any speaker system with “wireless” and “AVR optional” in the description, but given our previous experience with the Intimus 4T, Zona and Aperion’s “risk free” 30-day in home trial; if you need a flexible 5.1 system it’s definitely worth a look. If you do, make sure to let us know how Summit Wireless’ room correction features work out. Full PR after the click.

Aperion Audio Takes Wireless to a Whole New Level with the
Intimus® 4T Summit Wireless Home Theater Speaker System

No receiver, no speaker wires, and no confusing setup, with automatic speaker discovery and optimization Aperion Audio brings simplicity to the home theater

Portland, Ore. – August 1, 2012 – Aperion Audio, a direct-to-consumer maker of award-winning home theater speaker systems, unveils the Intimus® 4T Summit Wireless Home Theater Speaker System. For the first time in a wireless home theater system, you can enjoy a true plug and play setup with interference-free, uncompressed digital wireless audio from source to speaker. Utilizing Summit Wireless’ SpeakerFinder™ and MyZone™ technology, Aperion Audio’s Intimus wireless home theater system allows anyone to enjoy high-end audio without the hassle of a complicated setup or running speaker wires around a room. Now shipping, the Intimus® 4T Summit Wireless Home Theater System is available for order at AperionAudio.com with a complete 5.1 home theater system starting at $2,999.

With no A/V receiver required, it’s as simple as connecting your sources to the HDMI Home Theater One transmitter, plugging in speakers to power outlets, and pressing a single button to activate the automatic system configuration. Aperion Audio uses Summit Wireless’ SpeakerFinder technology to instantly determine where you placed each speaker in the room. Once initiated, the home theater components communicate by sequentially chirping their ultrasonic transducer. When one speaker chirps, the others listen to determine exactly when and where they heard the chirp and wirelessly report the results back to the transmitter. The system then calculates the angle and distance between each speaker within +/- 1 inch. SpeakerFinder takes less than 10 seconds to complete. Click here for more info and diagram: SpeakerFinder

For years, home theater consumers have wrestled with their system settings, attempting to create that perfect audio sweet spot. Unlike other systems which require a difficult multi-step setup, the Summit Wireless system will update for your viewing position at the touch of a button on the remote. By pressing the MyZone button the system instantly calibrates each speaker channel for volume level and phase delay based on the listener’s location in the room.
