The Parsifal is a medium-sized floorstander whose impeccable finish (from Jason's review: "That's real Italian polyester lacquer, and many coats of it.") and suave proportions make for a lustrous piece of audio gear. Verity's hand-applied finish is very different from the automotive-grade finish of Wilson Audio speakers, but it looks every bit as good. I feel confident in saying that you won't find a glossy finish that's better.
Beauty also plays a big role inb the Parsifal Ovation's sound. This is a speaker for listeners who recognize and appreciate beauty refined to the non-extraneous -- beauty intensified. There is OTL-like transparency and directness in the midrange, which is nonetheless a touch laid-back. This is a very appealing combination. The great detail and expressiveness aren't propelled at you.
