These beautiful Makore wood Parsifals by Verity Audio of Quebec are one of the world's finest loudspeakers, and an exceptionally intelligent design. With a midrange and woofer specially made for Verity, and using only 6 dB per octave (the only phase-correct crossover type) crossover networks between all drivers, Parsifals will produce some of the most natural yet exciting sound with room-filling, "holographic" imaging. How can you make a great thing better? The Ultras shown are a special edition Ultra platform expressly made for the Parsifal, with cutouts in the top layer to allow the Parsifal's permanently mounted, threaded spike bases to "sink in," so that the bottom of the speaker makes maximum contact with the Ultra for best coupling and drainage (click here for picture of platform). The Ultras further "damp" the cabinet of unwanted vibration. Also, the original center "isolation" section of granite and rubber has been replaced by a special edition Svelte Shelf (click here for picture), which further improves performance over the "stock" configuration. Finally, a set of Rollerblocks isolate the entire top section with Svelte Section. This is the "ultimate" Parsifal setup!
