The Aperion Zona™ Wireless Surround Speaker System Lets Enthusiasts and Installers Put Surround Sound Wherever They Want It

Portland, OR, September 23, 2010 – Aperion Audio, a direct-to-consumer maker of award-winning home theater speaker systems, ushers in the Aperion Zona Wireless Surround Speaker System at CEDIA Expo 2010. Aperion’s Zona brings reliable audiophile-grade surround sound to speaker locations where running wires is unsightly, difficult or impossible. The Aperion Zona Wireless Surround Speaker System overcomes these challenges using proven digital wireless technology that connects automatically when turned on. Home theater enthusiasts and custom installers can simply place the speakers where they want, plug them into a power outlet and instantly play high-fidelity sound.

Although surround sound for home theaters debuted years ago, homeowners often leave the surround or rear speakers unconnected to eliminate wires snaking around the room. But home theater buffs know they’re missing out on the full surround sound experience. “About one out of every four people we consult with asks if we make wireless surround speakers,” says Jason Hicks, Home Theater Guru at Aperion Audio. “Until now, we didn’t have a solution. We would’ve happily recommended other existing products, but they typically suffer from poor fidelity, unreliable connections or complexity, and that wouldn’t be acceptable for our customers. I’m excited that our product team has come up with a self-contained, high-end wireless system that lets home theater enthusiasts add surround sound wherever they want—no matter who manufactured their speaker system.”

Aperion designed the Zona speakers to work aesthetically and sonically with all home theater speaker systems. In addition, the Aperion Zona speakers can double as a wireless solution for music stored on personal computers or laptops. Plugging the Aperion Zona transmitter into the PC’s USB port automatically sends sound to Zona speakers located up to 150 feet away.

The Aperion Zona Speaker System consists of a compact wireless transmitter and two two-way powered speakers with tuned port and built-in wireless receivers. The transmitter connects to the Surround Pre-Out jacks of an AVR and the speakers link automatically when plugged in. Once connected, the system produces uncompressed 16 bit/48 kHz CD-quality audio.

Pricing, Availability and Warranty:
The Aperion Zona Wireless Surround Speaker System (two speakers, one transmitter) is priced at $499. Pre-orders are now being accepted, and the system is expected to ship on October 25, 2010. The One (1)-year limited warranty covers all defects in material and workmanship.

‘Eye-Popping’ Interest in 3D TV Drives New Flat Panel Sales, Says Leading On-Line Retailer

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

ABINGTON, PA – June 18, 2010:   Consumers are showing very strong interest in 3D-ready LCD and plasma TVs, according to sales reports released today by BestBuyPCS.com, a leading home theater retailer.

BestBuyPCS.com top five best-selling 3D flat panel TVs for May 2010 were:

  1. Panasonic TC-P58VT25 3D Ready Plasma TV
  2. Panasonic – TC-P65V10 65-inch 1080p Plasma TV
  3. SAMSUNG – UN55C8000 3D Ready LCD TV
  4. Panasonic TC-P54VT25 3D Ready Plasma TV
  5. Samsung UN40C7000 3D Ready LCD TV

“Consumers are clearly intrigued by 3D TV,” said Scott Aemisegger, President, BestBuyPCS.com.   “Queries for 3D-capable TVs and Blu-Ray players (like the Panasonic TC-P65VT25 or the Samsung BD-C6900) made up 34% of our site searches and roughly 20% of our total sales for the month.  If anything, we see this trend accelerating in June.

“Our best selling 3D TV for May 2010 was the Panasonic TCP58VT25, a model that was only released toward the end of the month,” according to Aemisegger.  “Both the 58-inch and the 65-inch continue to be in short supply, indicating these models are on track to be extremely popular throughout the summer.”

Aemisegger added that many consumers are opting for 3D product bundles including extra pairs of 3D glasses, higher bandwidth HDMI cables and next generation blu-ray disc players with 3D upgradable firmware.   “In some cases consumers are buying four, five even eight pairs of 3D glasses to share the 3D experience with friends, family and neighbors ,” he added.

Projectors Make Comeback

Sales of home theater projectors showed strong gains in May.  “New DILA projectors from JVC (DLA-RS15U,  RS25U and RS35U) made an impressive debut, but the real success story in home theater projectors is the Epson 8500UB,” said Aemisegger. “For about the same price as a 55-inch LCD TV, consumers get a 120″ diagonal picture for a truly immersive theater experience right at home.”
