How does Totem do it ???

Category: Speakers

Long story short...after several years of playing the field I've found my field of the Forest! Totem Forest's that is. They love Krell amplification and a good CD player, but other than that and decent cables you got yourself a slice of heaven! How much heaven can be had for a system price of $6000...try comparing this system to what I've owned over the years:

Dunlavy SC-V's
Wilson watt/puppy 6's (twice)
B&W 801N
Totem Wind
Maggie 3.6
ML Prodigy

driven by:

Krell FPB 600 and 400CX with arc ls25 or refIImkII

Mark Levinson 334 and 336 with 380S, 32ref and 390S

BAT vkd5, vk5i


Wadia 860SE

Jinky's...I can't remmember all the gear. What I do know however is just how right the Totem speakers are with Krell driving them. I'm only using a Sony DVP999ES player and all Totem wires!! It's addictive the way Boston Symphony Hall is...simply beautifull to hear!

Anyone else have a similiar epiphany? By the way, the Krell400cxi is mind boggling...all the typical audiophile attributes with clarity and musicality beyond reproach! A steal at $2500 list!
I am a long-time NAD/B&W/Velodyne customer. Recently I was intending to upgrade my main speakers to the B&W 805 diamonds, until I attended an event at my local audio salon and heard the Totem Element "Fire" monitors. I returned for a 2 1/2 session, listening to some of my favorite CDs and selected the Totems. The more I listen to the Totems, the more impressed I am at their "musicality". If you have an opportunity to spend time with any of the Element speakers, I'm sure you'll like them.

The Totems complete a major system upgrade, which included the NAD Masters Series M3, M4 & M5 units. I'm thoroughly satisfied with this wonderful setup!
