SkyFi’s System of the Week Includes ‘Super-Rare’ Gear

A couple weeks ago New York City’s Stereo Exchange expanded its operation to include used audio gear bought, reconditioned, and resold under the “certified pre-owned” label by NJ-based SkyFi Audio.

Many of the offerings are wonderful vintage pieces, like the super rare Tannoy Red speakers mounted in Lancaster Senior cabinets and Luxman CL35 MKIII/68c tube preamp/amp combo. Remarkably, the Luxman combo is operating with original NEC tubes. The system’s source unit is a modern CD player with a vintage look from Luxman.

SkyFi says the system was “curated…over several months” from products in its inventory with close attention paid to aesthetics and performance.

SkyFi Audio’s latest arrivals include a stunning Garrard 301 turntable with an equally stunning price of $8,999. The table features a custom plinth and SME 309 tonearm.

In the more affordable department, is what SkyFi describes as a “super rare” pair of Alon Lotus Elite speakers, restored to “marvelous working and cosmetic condition” and selling for $1,299.

Between these two extremes is another new arrival — the striking Rogers EHF-100 integrated tube amplifier, a modern design with a classic bent. Sky-Fi says it’s in “perfect working condition” and includes a transferable limited lifetime warranty. Current asking price is $3,499.
