For Sale Audiophile Oracle Mentor Monitor Speakers - Verity Audio Precursors. NOTE - These are USED. Originally indicated as NOT WORKING for some reason. Before there was Verity Audio there were the Oracle Speakers. If you look at their current Parsifal Ovation Monitor speakers and then look at these?
Julien Pelchat and Bruno Bouchard worked for Oracle and designed these speakers BEFORE they formed Verity Audio and took much of their know-how with them. The company now making Oracle turntables is a new company, even if it has the same principal participants and products.Oracle turntables were beautiful to look at and highly recommended. Oracle's first speaker was the product of Julien Pelchat and Bruno Bouchard, the principals of Verity Audio. The innards have changed but not that much.
These use really high end components including Dynadio, Scanspeak and Focal Drivers. They also do not have the grills (from what I know not all did). HOWEVER, there are magnets inset into the front for a grill, so maybe they are just missing. Fairly easy to recreate something if you are handy.
I think this is a VERY early pair. It is common to start serial #'s with a 1, so these might very well be one of the first few sets. They also have a unique finish.
I have not seen another set like this. It is really cool (and comparatively durable I imagine). Also the front is fuzzy. Sucks up any light so kind of hard to photograph.
I hooked these up to a variety of sources including SS and tube amps and they sounded great. Not Bass heavy but I hooked them up with a good subwoofer and that did the trick.I think a subwoofer will be required to get the most out of these (and not a cheap one either). You'll obviously also need fairly high stands. However, I like the sound of my current speakers (JBL 166's) better with my current setup (HH Scott tubes). These just might be TOO detailed for me. Hey, I also love the look of the JBL's so sue me. These are not big but they are dense. You will receive the 2 speakers AND the original custom cloth covers (pictured). They will be carefully packed and double boxed.
Look at the price of the current Verity speakers, look at the specs, then look at these. DIMENSIONS - Each speaker is approx. 14" tall x 10" deep and 7 wide at the base.
