Consumers Have Longed for a Wireless Home Theater Speaker System With Superior Fidelity -- Aperion Audio Is the First to Deliver It

New Speakers to Be Showcased at CEDIA Expo 2010 Utilizing Summit Wireless Technology

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - September 8, 2010) -  Aperion Audio, a consumer-direct maker of award-winning home audio speakers, will unveil the new Aperion Intimus® 4T Summit Wireless 5.1 Home Theater Speaker System bundled with a digital wireless audio hub, replacing an audio video receiver at CEDIA Expo, September 23 - 26, 2010. The Aperion system features Summit Wireless™ technology capable of delivering 24-bit uncompressed audio from the content source to each of the speakers.

In addition to the high definition wireless link to each of the speakers, the new Aperion system uses Summit Wireless' automatic optimization capability that includes SpeakerFinder™ instant setup and MyZone™ audio sweet spot calibration which in seconds produces a time aligned sound field for the listener by automatically adjusting delay and volume to their listening position in the room. Summit Wireless is designed for scalability from 2.0 to 7.1 so that consumers can add speakers at their convenience, as their system needs grow.

"Our Home Theater Gurus are often asked by customers if there is a reliable, easy to install, high resolution wireless home theater system available that sounds as good as today's wired speakers, and until now there wasn't," said Ed de la Fuente, vice president of marketing, Aperion Audio. "It is exciting to be first to market with a robust wireless solution, giving customers the superior audio fidelity they deserve and the instant optimization they probably didn't know was even possible."

The Aperion Intimus 4T Summit Wireless Home Theater System will be available with 5 speakers and a subwoofer for $2,499. Each system includes a Summit Wireless enabled digital wireless audio hub with an advanced high definition audio decoder supporting the latest Dolby® and DTS™ audio formats. The wireless hub provides easy connectivity to digital televisions, Blu-ray players, game machines and iPod's through HDMI, coax, optical and analog interconnect options. The Aperion Intimus 4T Summit Wireless Home Theater System is expected to ship by year end. To learn more, and to place a pre-order please visit
