The World's Largest Online Seller of Hi-End Audio ...


ROCKPORT "ALTAIR" Ultimate Audiophile Speakers w/ WARRANTY
NEW RETAIL PRICE:$98,900 - SAVE OVER $45,000 A PAIR!!!
Buy From A Safe Seller - We've Been On eBAY Since 1998 !!!


HigherFi is the largest seller of ultra high end audio in the world
and we are excited to be able to offer this ultimate audiophile pair of speakers from Rockport Technologies.

Pinch yourself, you are not dreaming and move fast so you don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to steal a new demo pair of, never before sold, Rockport "Altair" speakers in grey silver finish ... WOW!  This dealer demo pair of showroom speakers come with full factory warranty and can be shipped worldwide ... and yes of course trades are happily considered as well as interest free layaway.

If you ordered a pair today it could take months to get them so skip the wait, save $45,000 dollars and NO SALES TAX and put a smile on your face ... you just got a great deal.

Offered in mint cosmetic condition and yes they can be shipped worldwide to you by AIR anywhere in the world.


One way to judge an audio product is how easily it makes you forget you’re listening to an electro-mechanical reproduction of music rather than to music itself. By that criterion, the Rockport Altair was transcendental. I consistently had the impression of music-making coming alive in my room, not of listening to a hi-fi system. Not every loudspeaker that satisfies a sonic checklist of audiophile priorities as this speaker does —tonal balance, dynamics, soundstaging, for examples—rises to the rarified air that the Altair occupies. Highly resolving, effortlessly dynamic, utterly transparent, and full in balance, the Altair is one of the world’s great loudspeakers.

In addition to this sonic performance, the Altair’s build-and-finish quality is as good as it gets. This loudspeaker is clearly the creation of a fanatical dedication to perfection in every aspect of its design and execution. You should audition the Altair at your own risk; once you hear its magical ability to conjure up musicians right in front of you, your standards will forever be altered. I know that mine has.

Here is what some of our past customers had to say about 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 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/

"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

"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

"I first encountered Chris Moon at while I was Director of Marketing at Audiogon. Chris brought an unmatched reputation for integrity and an amazing variety of astounding products to Audiogon. I've been involved in audio for 40 years, working in retail, wholesale, manufacturing, in the media, as a show-organizer and as a business-development consultant, and there is no one in the audio industry whom I respect and trust more than Chris."
Bill Leebens - Director of Marketing/Audiogon,
Organizer, 2012 New York Audio Show

"Chris, many thanks for facilitating my purchase of the Wilson X-1 Series 3's. The speakers were just like new, as you said they would be, and your post-purchase advice about setting them up in my room has been extremely valuable. You made a deal happen that neither the seller nor I would have been able to make happen by ourselves ... but you made it happen. Thanks."
Professor L. Schwarz - Purdue University
