I got to spend some additional time listening to them this weekend. I move them as far back to the wall as I could, within 12", and left the sub off almost all day. I think they sound great, however I also know I'm not maximizing their potential as my room is horrible and I'm not sure the Peachtree has enough oomph. I live about 3 miles from Aperion's office and took home a pair of the Verus Grande bookshelves just to compare. These are larger speakers and they're more efficient (87db vs 83db). I immediately noticed that while the VG's are larger, and nicely constructed, the speakers weigh considerably less than the WOW1's. I would estimate about 3-5lbs per speaker, but I didn't weigh them. This makes we wonder if Aperion engineers their cabinets to save weight since they have free shipping. Not that the cabinet is poorly made, its actually very nice, just that for a speaker its size I expected it to weigh more, but that could also be because I had been used to handling the WOW1's which are heavy for their size. The difference in sensitivity was noticable and the Verus Grande's are very nice speakers, especially for their price. However, the WOW1's revealed a lot more detail and the bass was deeper, but maybe not as loud at higher frequencies, but had more depth to it. The VG tweeter was definitely brighter and became a bit shrill on a couple tracks I listened to. I listened to the Verus Grande's for about an hour, but once I hooked the WOW1's back up I couldn't take them down. Nothing wrong with the VG's though and they played with an ease to them that made me wonder how the WOW1's would sound with more power driving them. My PT Nova is 80 wpc. and as I crank the volume (and since I had the house to myself I took the liberty of doing this) they sound a little constrained. Don't get me wrong, they easily fill the room with sound, but they lose some imaging and detail, and I still don't think I'm getting their full bottom-end. Since I had about $250 in credit on Amazon, I noticed Emotiva selling some amps through amazon and decided to use my credits to buy their UPA200. This amp is rated at 125wpc @8ohm, and since its only costing me $100 out of pocket I can't think of a better deal. I'm curious how the extra power will sound. I'm also going to be setting up a 10x12 listening room this weekend which will be much better suited to listening to music instead of just hearing it. Once I have the amp and set up the room I'll repost with more details.
