Verity Audio speakers - Rienzi vs. Parsifal Ovation?

I have auditioned two Verity Audio speakers - the Finn and the Parsifal Ovation. The Parsifal blew me away - it is a wonderful speaker!

At half of the price of the Parsifal, the Rienzi is closer to my budget, but I cannot audition it. Has anyone directly compared the Rienzi to the Parsifal? How much of the Parsifal magic does it capture?

Regards,

Mark

Hey Mark,

Have you considered buying used? You might want to take advantage of the credit crucnch and drive a bit of a bargain. There are two pairs of clean looking Parsifal Encores for sale on Audiogon asking $5990 and $6350 respectively. Parsifal Encores sound reasonably similar to the Ovations which were a pretty incremental upgrade. I've owned a pair for 10 years and still love them. I am sure these would be a fairly considerable step up from a Rienzi.

Good luck!
