HE2006: Verity Audio

Verity audio is kinda like the Wilson of wood, putting incredible amounts of time into their unbelievably gorgeous finishes. And like Wilson, prices aren't cheap. The Sarastro goes for $35k while the Fidelio below in piano black runs $7150. The entire Verity line uses monitors mounted on bass modules with rear-firing bass drivers.

This room has received some big praise from the other publications. Alas, when I arrived in this room, someone was playing a full CD of bizarre Euro-pop music and it kept going and going and going. At least I got some shots of the speakers and the Nagra goodies (more on these guys later). Pics after the jump.

The Verity are really nice sounding products. I paid little attention to them for years and then I heard them recently and really liked them. Good stuff. Sonus Faber still kicks everyone's ass when it comes to the quality of the woodwork. The Stradivari Homage are drop-dead gorgeous and for $42K...they better be. My neighbour has a pair and I loved them. Not the easiest load, but with the Pass Labs amps they were quite special. Ian
I’ve become a huge fan of Verity and, having just shipped back their Tamino’s from a review, can tell you that they are impressive speakers from the bottom to the top. From their bottom of the line Tamino’s to the top Lohengrins. I heard the Sarastro’s and Lohengrins at their office in Quebec. Had the Tamino’s in my house for a couple of months. I miss the Tamino’s terribly. They were fantastic speakers all around, from sound quality and aesthetics to build quality and aesthetics. Check out: http://dagogo.com/VerityAudioTour.html to read about my visit. I’ll have the review of the Tamino’s up hopefully next month.
Ian So "The Stradivari Homage are drop-dead gorgeous and for $42K..." , where did you come by that kind of cash? And what is wrong with AmericanWired? No letters, no new articles? Is the site toast? Mickey
Mickey, The SF belong to a neighbour. I'm not sure I follow your comments. We posted over 50 new items on June 1st. More articles coming this month. July is going to be a larger issue. Ian
Just purchased the parsifals after learning about verity audio from this exact room. It is amazing i love it. I previously owned the acclaimed Dynaudio confidence C1. There is simply no comparison. The verity audio is in another level of refinement.
