I've also heard the Totem floorstanders previously, the Arrow, Staff, Hawk and the Wind.
I thought they were nicely detailed but the small footprint took alot away from them sounding stellar. They would be great considerations for a smaller room or condo assuming you don't mind paying the extra cash for such a smallish item.
I didn't like the Wind at all. That big bass driver was way too boomy which really killed the otherwise nice detail of the smaller drivers and tweeter.
I shocked the salesguy when i told him i preferred the Staff over the Wind (a $2000/pair vs. $8000 per pair for the Wind).
As usual, they had the Staff hooked up to a SS amp while the Wind was connected to a slew of tubed items. Of course all the Totems had the "properly placed beaks" on top.
Who is to say what really was going on with the sound from what source but to date, i'm sticking with that general review.

Yes...it is my understanding the tubes do different things to different speakers.

Yeah.....they were pricey.
