Sarastro IIS

The High Priest

The Sarastro is a two-cabinet, floor-standing, three-way, bass-reflex loudspeaker belonging to Verity’s extended range series. The top cabinet features a wide-spectrum midrange and proprietary ribbon tweeter that’s built in-house. The bottom cabinet houses an impressive bass-reflex rearward woofer. Both cabinets are isolated by a solid aluminum platform coupled with special elastomers and the bottom cabinet is floor-coupled via Verity’s Mechanical & Airborne Sound Isolation System (MASIS). The Sarastro exhibits a high 93 dB SPL 1 watt/1 meter sensitivity and inherits from the best Verity Audio technologies.

December 21, 2020
