The two biggest hassles with setting up surround sound: cables and calibration. The Aperion Intimus 4T Summit Wireless 5.1 system fixes both, with audiophile-friendly uncompressed streaming and ingenious sweet-spot technology. Where most wireless setups squeeze everything until Top Gun on Blu-ray comes out sounding like Airplane on VHS, Aperion uses the same high-speed frequencies as radar systems to stream audio in all its uncorrupted glory. Each individually powered speaker houses multiple amps and crossovers, so you can ditch the A/V receiver along with the cables. Place the speakers wherever you want and a hub unit (not shown) auto-calibrates it all. Then hit the MyZone button on the remote and the sweet spot shifts to wherever you’re sitting. You can hear it move.
