Smart or serpent bus duties

Hello I'm about to pull the trigger on the smart c1la, but I here so many good things on the serpent 4001. Only problem is I can't rent or try a serpent in my area. Anyone with experience with both units? W the serpent being half the price can it sound as good as the smart?
Thanx in advance

I tried a Serpent, Smart and Obsidian all at once over the course of a weekend. The serpent was my least favorite, but sounded great. The Smart had that SSL glue I was looking for and sounded huge. In all honesty, the Obsidian beat them both out to my ears. But, the Smart wasn't far behind (loved the Side Chain). If you have or can get the coin, I recommend the Obsidian. But, if not, I still can highly recommend the Smart and you'll be happy either way as all 3 units sounded great!
