Award winning Andra II speakers from Tennessee maker EgglestonWorks.  

This is the second generation retailing at $18,900 new.  

These Andra II speakers were originally Andra I speakers and were upgraded to Andra II specifications by EgglestonWorks under the prior owner's care.  This is why the granite side panels in this listing appear thicker than standard model II speakers.

I must warn you upfront that these are the heaviest speakers we've seen in this size. Might have something to do with the fact they chose granite to dampen the sides of the cabinet :-). 

There are two areas we've found these speakers to shine. First is the bass... wow, how can a box this size produce such thunderous and tight bass, especially in a sealed cabinet.  You would never know it by looking, but there are two 12" woofers in each cabinet.  The second woofer is setup in an isobaric configuration, which is a fancy way of saying it's in a sealed cabinet just behind the visible woofer.  This doubles the driver area, while maintaining the same front cabinet size, as it would take a much much larger cabinet to accommodate two 12" woofers.  Second, the midrange is as silky smooth as we have ever heard. Must have something to do with the double magnet 6" midrange drivers, again in an unusual configuration. 

This speaker was so successful that they are now on their 3rd iteration, now costing $25k.  

Condition is wonderful, without any significant scratches or scuffs.  Just the usual marks from moving around and positioning. Includes the magnetic grills.  

This is how Stereophile summarized their Class A review:

I suppose that if you have a listening room of kingly dimensions or an unquenchable thirst for the very biggest sound and bass down to 12Hz, you might need more speaker than the Andra II. After all, EgglestonWorks doesn't make the Savoy and Ivy Reference for the sheer fun of it. But the Andra offered everything (and then some) that I, for one, could ask of any speaker costing less than a mid-sized Mercedes: enormous dynamic range, superb deep bass, impeccable transparency, and a timbral balance as uncolored and harmonically true as the state of the art permits. It spoke to head and heart in equal measure, and did absolutely anything asked of it with no hint of strain or complaint.

For most of my audio life I have lived with large planar speakers, convinced that no dynamic design could offer the coherence and continuousness of panels. The Andra II has at last convinced me that cones and domes in a box, albeit very special cones and domes in a most extraordinary box, can hold the higher cards. While $19,000 is a hell of a lot of money for a pair of speakers, the Andras have to be considered an eminently fair deal given their superb build quality and extraordinary sound.

Pure Class A in every respect, and a more than worthy successor to the storied original Andra, the Andra II is one of the world's great loudspeakers. It proves that, like love, a speaker, too, can be lovelier the second time around.

WHO WE ARE 

SkyFi Audio 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, 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 very selective 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, Pro-Ject Audio Systems, and Sony ES, we have access to OEM parts, service, and support.  If you are local and looking for new equipment from the above-mentioned manufacturers, please drop us a line as we can arrange both sales and professional installation in the tri-state area.

PURCHASING GUIDELINES

We do not accept or review any offers that do not go through the official Audiogon system. We have too many items for sale and it’s nearly impossible to keep track of offers outside of the official system. Please don’t message, email, or text any offers. 

If you do not see a “Make an Offer” button, it means we are not considering any offers on that item.   

PAYMENTS

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 if you purchase the item at the asking price.  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 do not accept PayPal.  You must pay in person with cash, certified or bank check, or wire transfer.  If you make a PayPal payment and are picking up the item, 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 the accessories that are included (such as the original box, remote, cables, 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 surround 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 resell 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 on your own.

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 local to the 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 click here 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.
