I have the Totems, they are great, but require heavy horsepower to drive, 250 to 300+ watts. This will affect your budget.

I have totem one signatures, i have driven them with bryston
B-60, good results, but in the end a little bit short on power. i amm now using odyssey stratos w/ B-60 pre-amp,
very good results-more of everything and less stress on
totems. totem acoustics supposedly used simaudio gear when
they designed model 1 and others. I also know a totem dealer
in Montréal, probably the biggest totem dealer,he usually gets first pair of a design when it becomes available and he sells Bryston with totem's higher models but prefers Conrad Johnson with Model one and Forrest. His fave is the Model one sig. and that's the one he pushes more PS- for those interested- this dealer discovered that Model one bi-wired di not sound right, so he went back to TOTEM and Vince agreed with him. this was confirmed by Vince to myself
at the Montréal show. so what they do now is put in a silver wire jumper between posts and you connect single wire
in either sets of posts. Totem put in that jumper when i had mine upgraded to signature. i love the model one, i keep trying other speakers but i end up sticking with my Model one sigs. great price for hi-end especially in Canada.
