"The Worlds Largest Seller of Ultra High End Audio"
PARTIAL AND FULL TRADES CONSIDERED.
We have one top condition pair of rare Genesis One speakers (4 towers) with servo amp all in great working and cosmetic condition with heat treated wood crates. These are serious and substantial high end speakers with the very best in deep, tight low bass and massive soundstage. Shipped from Florida and yes we can ship worldwide. Received rave reviews from those that heard them and widely regarded as one of the worlds best top 3 speakers. These speakers are all stock, no repairs of modifications, all drivers and amp working normally. Cosmetic condition is amazing and while no speaker of this age is perfect we would be surprised if you were not delighted by their condition. Originally setup for the original owner by Paul McGowen of PS Audio and professionally maintained ever since. We have the full history on these speakers since new. We have probably sold more used Genesis One speaker systems than anyone in the world so we know a good pair when we see one, we know how to facilitate a safe and secure transaction and we know how to support you through the purchase, shipping, setup and operation of this world class speaker system - you are in good hands and we have extensive references to prove it!
The Genesis 1 system consists of four major modules: two midrange / tweeter Towers and two bass Towers. Each module is 7 ft 3inches tall (221cm), is covered in what the factory described as South American Rosewood, and is set on / into piano black lacquered custom sculpted bases.
Each bipolar midrange tweeter Tower sits in a sculpted base, is 7 ft 3 inches high and houses a line source ribbon midrange and twenty six ribbon tweeters in a line source array and assembled in a Corian baffle of which twenty are at the front, and six are at the rear. Two wings attach to each Corian baffle and are two inches thick and filled with sand to render them completely inert for wave launching.
There are two crossover modules (One for each Tower) which are housed in a solid Corian enclosure and they sit at the rear AND connect to the midrange / tweeter Towers. You connect your amplifier to this crossover. The crossover has two controls, one for the rear tweeter level and one for upper midrange for matching room acoustics. All cabling to this is done by Transparent Audio.
THE SOUND OF THE MIDRANGE / TWEETER TOWERS
These are the flagship of the Genesis range and compared to all the lower Genesis models these sound so much more refined, detailed and with an immense soundstage - holographic even. The overall sound is so real and beautiful that you just sit there and forget all the other problems in your life - mesmerizing and to die for.
The bass towers are 7 ft 3 inches tall and each house six twelve inch metal cone woofers, each with its own accelerometer sensor and is set into piano black lacquered custom sculpted bases.
Although not shown in the photos each bass speaker has a full length black speaker cover in perfect condition. I just prefer to see the cones.
The twelve woofers (Six in each Tower) are individually driven by twelve separate Servo amplifiers for a total of 4000 watts, beautifully housed in a Single Genesis Stealth chassis weighing 160 pounds. It is currently set to 110v / 120v. 12 Swiss Neutrik connectors are at the rear together with XLR & RCA inputs. Factory cables from servo to main bass towers are included.
There are 2 massive Audioquest hand made 24 conductor, oxygen free, high purity copper cabling for connecting the subwoofer Towers to their respective amplifiers. Each Audioquest cable feeds six woofers, is thirty feet long and weighs about 20 pounds.
Controls for the woofers include volume, low pass, high pass and phase, and are varied by a hand held remote control transmitter.
THE SOUND OF THE BASS TOWERS
They are absolutely no comparison whatsoever to any of the bass in the other Genesis range especially the 2 & 201s, I can assure you that you will be amazed with the Bass that this system gives out. Not only is it extremely deep and solid, you will actually FEEL it ,,,,at certain orchestral bass levels it moves (air) your cloths that you are wearing and the room. You just sit there kinda holding on and saying WOW and absolutely no distortion at all. You have probably never heard a Bass like this from any other speaker. It seems that the Bass is way below 16 hz because you can feel it.
The complete Genesis 1 System weighs over 1 ton (2000 pounds or 909 kg).
CONCLUSION BY THE DESIGNERS AND MANUFACTURERS
"The Genesis 1 system contains the collective knowledge and experience of Arnie Nudell and Paul McGowan over more than 25 years. The technology contained in these speakers is the most advanced of any product currently available. We believe that no current product on the market today can approximate the sonic realism or striking beauty of the Genesis 1. There is no compromise in this system. It excels at spectral coherence and accurate harmonic structure. It has the greatest dynamic range of any High End reference system. It has superb macro and micro dynamic qualities, unparalleled sound staging and very low distortion. It does not limit or favor any kind of music. Listening to the Genesis 1 is truly a Revelation."

As the owner of HigherFi, a couple of years ago I contracted double cancer and was forced to stop selling audio gear while I fought for my life. Having made a complete recover, I am now back on Audiogon but they tell me they cannot recover my long list of past clients. I have 100% feedback on eBAY since 1998 still today and as you can see above I am the only online dealer here with references from the EDITORS of most of the top audio publications so you know you are in honest and ethical hands when you purchase from us.
Having been an audiophile and a reviewer for over ten years, I have dealt with many people in the industry. My experience with Chris Moon of HigherFi.com was one of the smoothest, hassle free experiences I have had. I'm sure we will work together again soon. Thanks, Greg Petan, Managing Editor/Stereotimes.com
"HigherFi is an honest, forthright seller of used high-end audio equipment. I have known Chris for over ten years and he has always been above board, knowledgeable, and a very good communicator. I would surely recommend him to anyone looking to sell very high-end audio components on a world-wide stage. I'm not sure there is anyone in the business today that's sold more gear in the uber-end of the market. What else can I say? Highly recommended!" Jeff Fritz , Reviewer with UltraAudio
Dealing with Chris at HigherFi reminds me of the good old days. He's good people and I respect his advice and square dealing." Wes Phillips - The Absolute Sound
"I had the pleasure of setting up a Genesis 1.1 Loudspeaker system with my buddy that was purchased through HigherFi. The buyer was very happy and we had a blast dialing that system in! Chris seems to have all the great toys and the knowledge to get them pumping out fantastic music." Michael Mercer, HPSoundings and Positive Feedback
