    Verity Audio Otello Speakers

    Otello

    The Otello exemplifies Verity Audio’s philosophy. This commanding loudspeaker boasts impressive dynamics and true musicality, qualities for which all Verity Audio loudspeakers are recognized. Like all of Verity Audio’s fine products, Otello offers an outstanding performance for its price point and a remarkable intelligibility level for a speaker its size. Its smooth impedance curve, high-efficiency characteristics and proficiency in listening rooms of all sizes and conditions make it an exceptionally adaptable and versatile product. With an input sensitivity of 93 dB and even, nominal 4-ohm impedance, Otello excels alongside a strikingly wide array of power amplifiers, including single-ended triode designs.

    Efficiency: 93 dB 1W/1m;
    Sublime balance of dynamics, transparency and tonal beauty;
    Refined appearance and industrial design;
    Stable 4-ohm impedance compatible with any amplifier;
    Two isolated cabinets, allowing for superior sound coherence;
    Superb custom-made proprietary midrange and woofer drivers using state-of-the-art technologies;
    Verity’s unique rear woofer configuration provides extreme definition down to the lowest octaves;
    Small size at no loss of performance;
    Gorgeously crafted and finished with exquisite Italian lacquer;
    New MASIS isolation support with adjustable feets.











    MSRP: $17k-$18,645k depending on finish.

    Big fan of Verity Audio.
    Congrats Mike on a great line of speakers. Verity’s new amp and preamp are also very very nice. I had seen them before but got to hear them at the recent Montreal show. Gorgeous!

    Thanks Chris, Joe and Buddy. The Verity's easy load presents some nice options. I really feel excited about my speaker options (and I'm done with speakers):

    In the store:
    Magico - best SOTA modern box speakers. Best speaker under $10K.
    Harbeth - best BBC monitor/stand mount speaker
    Verity - efficient floor standers which fill a ~$10k (Finn, Otello) to ~$25k+ (Parsifal Anniversary) gap in my offerings.
    Gryphon - system play with Gryphon electronics

    Out of the box:
    Avantgarde - best horn speakers, high efficiency, dynamic champs
    ?????? coming soon - crazy, wild, fun speaker I've always loved....stay tuned....

    P.S. yes, I'm constantly thinking of this stuff!

    Re: Verity Audio Otello Speakers

    Very nice Mike! Nice job in looking for the best components at various price points. Also, I know you are always thinking about assembling musical systems, not just selling components.

    Can’t wait to hear the Othellos!

    It's so nice to see you carry Verity. How do they match with Gryphon? Do you plan on getting the larger speakers they make? The Sarastro's are amazing.

    Re: Verity Audio Otello Speakers

    Mike, congrats on picking-up Verity. They are truly beautiful speakers in terms sound and finish. I had Parsifals for 15+ years, and they worked really well in various room configurations and with a variety of equipment.

    Congrats Mike! You’ve done a brilliant job of bringing in a diverse selection of terrific sounding speakers at various price points. Your next addition, which I’ve been after you to pick up for awhile, will really round out your speaker line beautifully. I don’t know of another dealer that has such an amazing selection of speakers to audition.

    Best,
