Wilson Audio Sophia I - 2nd owner, does include crates and toolkit. Overall very nice shape, but they do have the common paint cracks along some corners as shown in the pictures. Also, the grill velcro became unattached over the years. Speakers work great, but will leave reattaching the grills to the new owner.
From Original Stereophile review: https://www.stereophile.com/floorloudspeakers/619/index.html
In its general appearance, the Sophia looks like a single-box cousin of Wilson's WATT/Puppy. And its 41"-high, floorstanding, three-way design
concept reminds me of the now-discontinued WITT. But the Sophia is all new, from
its handcrafted enclosure to its custom-built drive-units.
At $11,700/pair, the Sophia is the best value
for money speaker to come from Wilson Audio, but there will probably be
shocked intakes of breath at Wilson's Utah HQ when David Wilson and his
team read that I think the Sophia might well be Wilson's best speaker to
date. "Best," not in the sense that the Sophia exceeds all their other
models in every area—it clearly doesn't—but "best" when considered as an
integrated package at its price, where its performance in each area
optimally balances those in other areas. In that sense the Sophia raises
the bar for the twice-the-price WATT/Puppy, which is probably why that
system was scheduled to be relaunched in its "version 7" reincarnation
at Home Entertainment 2002, still two weeks away as I write this review.
