Retail: $5300 for premium cherry finish. Audiogon Bluebook used average: $2790.
I'm original owner. Two years old, lightly used. Slight compression ding on one speaker corner, cosmetic only, hence 8/10 rating.
Perennial Stereophile recommended speaker. The most bass you will ever hear from a stand-mounted speaker, owing to the double woofers per speaker. Amazing clarity, dynamics, and imaging.
Have original boxes and everything else. Lypinski stands work beautifully. Cost $950 new, sell for additional $300 per pair.
The Totem Mani-2 Signature was designed as a statement in pure musicality. With its properly focused true coherent energy, it's a magical, ethereal and visceral listening experience. The Mani-2 Signature utilizes a unique push-pull/vented configuration where the inner and outer mid-woofer operate in exactly the same "extended" frequency range, resulting in a nearly distortion-free sound from the external driver. Accurate engineering, special double box configuration and truly superior quality materials and damping procedures have made this possible.
Mani-2 Signature is the culmination of several years of research into monitor-sized transducers and speakers. The aim was a speaker capable of both absolute sound staging and fine focus. We've reached our goal. The Mani-2 Signature project real, full-range, focalized sound that involves your whole being.
