Listening to music means sharing an experience that is uniquely human, whether in a concert hall, or the cozy atmosphere of your favorite club. But no matter where we are, our objective is always the same—to reach beyond the performance and redis- cover that wellspring of human emotion that inspired the artist to reveal his soul.
The Sarastro IIS loudspeaker will take you there.
The Sarastro IIS, like the Lohengrin, belongs to the Verity’s eXR ex- tended-range loudspeaker line. All of you who have been waiting for a loudspeaker capable of offering a taste of the Parsifal at higher efficiency and superior dynamics will be thrilled by the Sarastro IIS.
It recaptures all of the drama, excitement, and intimacy of the origi- nal performance, bringing new dimensions to your recordings. The Sarastro IIS has a wonderful facility to bring the music the way it was written, the way it was performed, the way it was meant to be.
The Sarastro IIS features two separate cabinets: an upper and a lower loudspeaker module. The upper module houses a Verity pure aluminum ribbon tweeter and a wide-bandwidth midrange. The lower module holds a state-of-the-art 11-inch woofer tuned in a fourth-order Bessel enclosure. The two modules unite to form an extended-range reference loudspeaker. The cabinets are con- structed according to proprietary asymmetrical reinforced tech- nology that enhances the sonic homogeneity and musical image stability. It’s the culmination of years of experience in acoustic engineering and in listening skills.
The isolation system consists of a thick aluminum platform that has been specially treated and damped to assure a high degree of energy control and a rock solid mechanical reference. It leads to a precise and very well defined image and soundstage coherence.
Those who love the Parsifal midrange will recognized the same qualities but with stronger dynamics and higher sense of effortless sonic performance. The ribbon tweeter integration with the mid- range driver is extremely homogeneous and gives to the Sarastro IIS an incredible sense of unlimited bandwidth and coherence.
The lower module has been designed to work as an in-room quasi- third-order smooth-slope bass generator. It allows an outstanding bass response down to the low 20 Hz.
The Sarastro IIS comes in piano black, metallic silver, and many choices of exotic wood veneers. It is finished with a long-lasting high-gloss polyester lacquer specially imported from Italy and formulated to be associated with the finest luxury furniture stan- dards. The entire process is geared to seeing you get loudspeakers that embody absolute quality and the most rigorous standards of workmanship.
Without any doubt, the Sarastro IIS is an exquisite loudspeaker that offers an effortless sense of realism throughout any home audio software collection. It’s a luxurious piece of engineering and furni- ture that integrates state-of-the-art components and represents an investment in years of enjoyment.
All Verity designs are crafted with a balance of science and art. It is only through this tradition that the spirit of knowledge and crafts- manship come alive.
