For many of us, sound in the games we play is a critical component of our immersion. In our latest hardware review, we take a look at the Aperion Zona Wireless Speakers. See how they stack up and then leave us your thoughts in the comments.
The Zona is a small, powered bookshelf speaker. They measure only about 10” high and are 6” in depth and width. The black MDF (medium density fiberboard) cabinet is curvy in the back, differentiating itself from the herd of black rectangular boxes, the ubiquitous shape of bookshelf speakers. They have a 1” silk-dome tweeter, a 4.5” fiberglass woofer and a tuned bass port you hardly notice as it is a slot in the front rather than the round cobweb attracting hole that many ported speakers have in the back. They each have a class D (uses very little electricity) 20 watt amplifier which is bi-amped – i.e. the tweeter and the woofer are powered separately – with DSP (Digital Signal Processing) technology and with all those electronics inside, weigh a solid seven pounds each.
