Totem-Acoustic-Logo2

 

Created in 1987 by sound sage Vince Bruzzese, Totem’s mission is to develop loudspeakers capable of reproducing a truly musical and moving performance. The goal is to constantly provide designs that are both affordable and real “soul movers” for all music lovers. Each Totem speaker unit is assembled with the outmost precision, using meticulously selected components of the highest quality. Every speaker model features its own distinct scientifically selected internal wiring. Totem’s determined foray into the realm of musical transducers has been a path to which we have strictly adhered. Uncompromising design, engineering, attention to detail and extensive critical listening tests — attributes long associated with all our products — have resulted in speaker systems that can be part of your life for a very long time. At Totem Acoustic, minute attention to every detail is our guiding principle. We believe a speaker should exhibit the liveliness and spaciousness of sound, with all ty, harmonics, timbre and rhythm must all be realistically portrayed.

Signature-One-Mahogany-2

Totem Signature One

Don’t call it a comeback. The Signature One, designed for our 30th anniversary, is not a “comeback” of the famous Model 1 that launched Totem. It is an elevated, advanced monitor loudspeaker reflecting the progression of our engineering prowess and is primed to knock you out.

The spirit of the Model 1 lives deep within it but the Signature One is quite unique and its superior performance defies comparison. An imposing 6.5-inch mineral infused woofer derived from the Forest driver is mated to a 1” aluminum dome tweeter housed in a rear chamber. Designed simultaneously to achieve the best phase relationship, their synergy is perfected by a handmade crossover consisting of only a few precious components.

Signature One is an homage to our history, an anniversary celebration, and a retro yet timeless design that will outperform competitors throughout its multi-decade lifespan.

Sky Tower Black Ash-1050x1050

Totem Sky Tower

  

The Sky Tower shares the same DNA that made Sky monitor such a success, like gigantic imaging, phase coherence, authoritative bass, and amplifier friendly compatibility. Remarkably, it does it all on a larger scale and with even more impact.

To perfect its interaction with room acoustics, Sky Tower is mass loadable while a new high density composite Claw controls resonance, tighten bass, and heighten the soundstage. Any media at any volume is presented effortlessly with smooth detail. After all, it’s a Sky.
