Verity Parsifal Encore Loudspeakers - Original Crates

Lovely speakers pair with original crates, a few blemishes to the lacquer see photos but very presentable

Some owner reviews:


Bottom Line:   

This review is on the Encore version.
I bought my Parsifals on Audiogon and it is easily the best purchase of my life (even better than my M3 :-).
These speakers brought me so much closer to music and the emotional message they convey is stronger than any other audio component I heard, including Avantgarde Duo's and the big Wilsons.
When you first listen to them what you notice right away is their transparent, natural midrange and very holographic presentation. The soundstage they cast is simply phenomenal! Human voices are so real, lifelike and pure, it's scary! You will be hard pressed to find a speaker at any price that reproduces voices and acoustic instruments in a more lifelike manner than the Parsifals.
These speakers are not big but the bass they put out belies their size: it's very, very deep, with great control "kick". It may not have exactly the same dynamic impact as the bigger Wilsons (although I think it is almost as good as the Watt/Puppies 7's), but it is really amazing. The Scaaning Audio Technology woofer really kicks ass!
The top end has great resolution but at the same time always remains silky smooth.


Bottom Line:   
I am new in the audiophile world, but did already do some research and I must say that these speakers are the best I ever heard. Dynamics, air, 3D, depth, clarity,... you name it. This rather small loudspeaker seems to fill the whole room. I heard these speakers with the Jeff Rowland 3O2 amp, Teac CD-player and Belcanto DAC and it was magnificant.
Even if they are rather forward sounding, they are not making you nervous nor are they fatiguing you, you swallow an enormous amount of musicality but never want to run away because it is too much. I now understand also that you can really see/hear the positioning of the artists at the recording venue (Especially during the Missa Creola CD with Jose Carreras it was marvellous to see Jose upfront, the Choir in the back and the instruments placed accordingly)

Another set-up that came close (but was not as good in soundstage, clarity,...) was Mark Levinson pre with Classé CAM 350 mono's and B&W 800.

One obstacle for me not to buy them ...As one of the former reviewers said... I will have to sell my house and wife etc... I can tell that I really have been thinking about it (best way to get rid of the WAF ):-))) They are so damn good !
 
Bottom Line:   
I SEARCHED LONG AND HARD FOR GOOD SPEAKERS. THESE WERE THE ONLY SPEAKERS THAT GAVE ME THAT RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE. EVERYTHING ELSE TRULY PALES IN COMPARISON.

SIMPLY THE BEST DAMN SPEAKERS I HAVE EVER HEARD.

ENUF SAID. GO HEAR FOR YOURSELF.
