Aperion Audio Intimus 5B Bookshelf Speaker Review
31 July 2009
Summary: Don’t expect to run the Intimus 5Bs as a full range monitor. Because of the Intimus 5B’s low sensitivity and rather anemic bass response, they aren’t an ideal speaker to use as a nearfield monitor either. Their physical size simply restricts the amount of usable bass they can produce below 80Hz.
Pros: Beautiful cabinetry, Excellent fidelity, Generous trial and return policy, Excellent value
Summary: The default advice for budgeting an audio system used to be "spend the largest chunk of your available cash on loudspeakers". Recent developments in driver-production technology and speaker measurement software may have changed that. Speakers are now some of the biggest bargains around.
