I was in your same shoes a few months back - I think the closest dealer is Galen Carol in San Antonio. I ended up getting Dynaudios instead. Hard to believe the 4th largest city in hte US does not have a Totem dealer.

portland oregon is in the same boat. only 1 dealer has them and i won't step foot into that store. i usually listen to them at CES or buy a pair off a'gon.i have had over 5 pairs of totems and they were all excellent. i use a couple pairs of mani 2's now along with totem's taw in-wall speakers in my den.
If you're willing to come up to Austin, Tube Dreams here is a Totem dealer, but they only stock the smaller speakers because the larger models present too difficult a load for most of the tube amplifier gear that he carries.. There was also a home theater outfit that carried Totem, but I believe they've gone belly up in this lousy economy. Sad.
Oh, and the Audiogoner here in Austin to whom I sold my Arro's recently might let you come to his place to hear them. Message me offline if you're interested.
