Totem Mani II Signature
These speakers created quite the buzz when they were released and have a loyal following.
We had not heard this particular model and quite impressed with the amount of volume and authority they can produce in the cabinet size. It reminds us of the Proac Response 2 from 25 years ago which was always shocking in terms of size/performance.
This wonderful set came to us from a collector that rarely used most of his gear and took incredible care.
They look brand new and comes complete with all packaging. I can’t imagine anyone not being super pleased and surprised by its condition.
The item will be professionally packaged in its original box and insured for safe transit to your home.
Available for pickup in Ridgewood, NJ or Union Square NYC.
NJ Residents will need to pay NJ Sales Tax
Use the buy it now button and we will cover the PayPal fees.

What Tone Magazine Concluded.
So what does $5,295 (plus an additional $300 to $400 for high-quality speaker stands) get you? It won’t get you the huge soundstage of large panels or the subterranean bass of a separate subwoofer. It will get you compact speakers that fit easily into most listening rooms. It will get you intensely musical sound from all the sources at your disposal. As a bonus, you will not need monster amps to drive these guys. In a modest-sized listening room with two integrated amps, each rated at less than 40 watts per side, I got great sound aplenty from the Sigs, although their bass response seemed slightly plumper with the Pass than the PrimaLuna.
The jungle of $5,000-plus speakers is the natural habitat for many species of widely differing designs. Most speakers in this price range will provide pleasurable listening if mated with proper electronics, cables and, most critically, a room with the appropriate dimensions. When it comes to getting the most sound in a modest-sized room, the Mani-2 Sigs will give you just about as much as you can hope for in terms of imaging, smooth highs, clear mids and extended bass that has to be heard to be believed. If this is not enough to sell you, you should note that my 15-year-old Mani-2s, while clearly bettered by the Sigs, still sound pretty darn good (i.e. I’m not throwing them away), which is a testimony to the build quality of Totem speakers.
WHO WE ARE
Skyfi.nyc is a small startup business specializing in the purchase, reconditioning and reselling of select high end audio equipment. We only buy equipment the we admire and are passionate about. No mid-fi, no gimmicks and no junk.
Each piece of equipment is cosmetically restored and fully tested in our well-equipped lab by an engineer with 30+ years of experience in the Hifi world. If it does not meet or exceed the original manufactures specifications, it will not be sold. We are select about the equipment we purchase, focusing on mostly analog, high-build quality, American and European built units.
Through our sister company, which is an authorized dealer for McIntosh, Audio Research, Sonus Faber, ClearAudio, Project and Sony ES, we have access to OEM parts and service support. If you are local and are looking for any new equipment for the above mentioned manufacturers, please drop us a line as we can arrange both sales and professional installation in the tri-state area
If you would like to make an offer, please don't email or message us unless you are looking to trade something in.
If we are accepting offers, you will see a button on the listing page to do so. Please use it, as it is very hard to track offers through email or messaging. This way, we are all also better protected. If you don’t see a “offer” button its because we are not taking offers on this item. Please don’t bother to make one.
We prefer working through PayPal, which allows you to use a credit card or bank transfer. We do not charge extra for any payment fees. You can also send us a personal check (which will need to clear before shipping), certified check, money order or wire transfer. International clients without access to PayPal should use a bank wire transfer.
If you are picking up an item, we don not accept PayPal, you must pay in person with cash, certified or bank check or wire transfer. If you make a PayPal payment it will be returned.
TRADE IN POLICY
We accept trade-ins of equal or lesser value under certain conditions. Simply ask and let us know the exact model, condition and what accessories are included such as a box, remote, manual, etc. We will only consider high-end equipment from mainstream manufacturers such as McIntosh, Mark Levinson, Audio Research, Krell, etc. and will typically pass on displays, projectors, receivers, dated processors and mid-fi equipment of any type. We will offer a fair value for your equipment, but keep in mind we are running a business and will need to be able to sell the equipment at a profit after investing a great deal of time and resources in testing, certifying, repairing, cleaning and packaging the incoming equipment. If you are looking for top dollar we suggest attempting to sell it directly to an end user.
SELL US YOUR GEAR (Working or Broken)
We will also purchase your used or broken gear and arrange pickup if you are in our local market. Just drop us a note for a quote, but be sure to include the condition and what is included.
HOW TO VISIT US
We are currently operating from a residence in Ridgewood, NJ. You are welcome to make an appointment if there is a piece of equipment you would like to see in operation before or after purchase. We have a well-equipped, dedicated listening room with tons of equipment of all makes and models. We are not a store, so please don’t make an appointment if you are just curious as to how a speaker or piece of equipment sounds. In essence, no tire kickers please.
If you are in NYC and cannot make it out to Ridgewood, we can arrange pickup in Union Square (14th Street) after the purchase. You can call or text (646) 852-2073 with any questions or to schedule an appointment. We can also arrange to install, calibrate and tune the gear in your listening room if you are in the local area. This is super useful when purchasing large speakers or heavy amplifiers. It is also great for ensuring your new turntable is setup correctly in its final resting place.
Thanks for looking and please send us your email address if you would like to receive a list of the equipment we receive from time to time. We promise not to bombard you with junk email.
