Totem Acoustic Sttaf: On the Bench

Totem Sttaf - £1,695


Clean and simple are the watchwords for this very pretty and unusually compact two-way floorstander, says Paul Messenger

Beautifully judged balance gives fine scale and involving voicing

Bass grip and grunt and loudness capability are limited

Happiest at modest loudness levels, this speaker delivers good scale with fine midband

I've heard all the speakers in the Totem line, many times, and even owned a few of them, and the ones that I haven't owned, I've had on loan from my dealer. So let's just say I know Totem pretty well.

Totem Sttaf Floor Standing Speaker


Heard the speakers hooked up to an Arcam FMJ A38 amp using an Arcam SACD player, listened all kinds of music from BonJovi to Phil Collins, sounded absolutely fantastic. Finally played some accoustic guitar from an actual SACD.

Extreme quality control, Very well balance speaker with great neutral sound on the warmer side of the spetrum, with Spectacular imaging and staging, Extremely detailed. Very forgiving speaker and Extremely versatile

None really uneless you are trying to fill a really large room, I mean Really Large.Not Very Efficient

Upgraded to these speakers from the Totem Arros, however after 8 months use, I cannot say these speakers are superior to Arros, just different. Another example of how bigger is not better.

I upgraded my audio gear from NAD to Van Medevoort, a high end dutch audio equipment manufacturer. So, the next step was to look for a new pair of speakers. I had Dali serie Blue "Live" for more than 5 years.
