I would second the Ascend Sierra recommendation having owned Energy RC's for ~3yrs and my Sierra NrT's are a definite step up. I know you have the Veritas and I've only listened to them breifly in store but IMHO they were voiced and sounded very similar to the RC's. Since you're looking at craiglist listings in the Sacramento area...Ascend Acoustics is located in San Clemente Ca it might be worth the drive(if not to far) and maybe you could compare the 6.3 vs Sierra?
