Verity Audio Rienzi


Hello!
I want opinions from actual owners of Verity Audio Rienzi. Good and bad things to consider, is it possible to biwire the speakers, do you use them in a big/small room, do they need a subwoofer, etc, etc.....
Thank you in advance!

I owned Parsifal Encores, and spoke extensively with a dealer who had Parsifal, Rienzi, and Fidelio Encore. I was told the Fidelio and Parsifal are a big step up in refinement. Not trying to spend your money, but if a Fidelio's come up for the right price, you may want to consider it…. I don't think you will go wrong either way though. The Fidelio is 8ohm, and a pretty easy load, but not sure about Rienzi.

It is amazing here on Audiogon that I don't think people even read the OP's request and question and just use it as an opportuniry to talk about their gear.....Fjn04 was nice enough to respond but never offered any help. I just find it amazing
All good Garebear, and I understand your initial point.
However, there are many posts where people are getting few, if any responses. At that point I figure what the heck, let me offer something. I have seen Fidelio's come up here pretty low, and perhaps it's worth the OP's consideration. As for your comment that I'm taking the opportunity to talk about my gear, I don't know what to say other than cheers and enjoy the music. Best -Don
I've not owned the Rienzi but have owned the Tamino, Fidelio and Parsifal Encore and Sarestro. The Fidelio is the start of the Verity journey imo.

They Rienzi may beat other speakers like Devore 88 and Totems in many areas but it depends on what you want in staging and realistic harmonics. It's very personal at this point. Verity is great for me.
Thanks! I am asking about the Rienzis because they are within my budget. But I´m keeping an eye on the used market.
Not so easy to find Verity speakers in northern Europe at all! But I don´t have to buy them "today" so I think I´ll wait and see what happens......
Welcome other members if you like to leave your opinions on other Verity (up to Parsifal money ;-))
Thanks again!
The last pair of Fidelio Encore's I saw for sale were NM Makore finish. They were on Don Better's website, and selling for $5500. I know the previous owner who upgraded to Amadis, and he babies his gear. More to the point, check out what Rienzi's are going for these days. That's really the only point I was trying to make. If I were in the market, it would be a no brainer at each models respective selling prices. Cheers -Don
Well... I have the Rienzis at home for a week from a shop. Trying to find the right place for them in my room. So far I am very pleased with them. Better, much better than my System Audio Explorer Master....
Tell you more later.
Any updates?
Here is a audio search engine that might help you find a pair anywhere in the world.

Maybe you could find some near your location.
Did you find them to be a lame duck or do you love them?
Not lame at all. I like them. Strings, drums, voices, wind instruments...they all sound great and stage accuracy is outstanding. They are ok for my music, jazz, blues, classical. Bass is well define but its quite tricky to find the right possition for them in the room. I drive them with a ML 331. I like the Verity sound so I think I'll keep them till I can afford a pair of Parsifals....
