I like the Totem sound, the Def Tech is a bit hot for me but was well recieved in review, the Revel has great bass...........dont you love asking what others would pick from a narrow list and the first 2 replies are of completely different speakers?
I know folks want to help but sticking to the point is helpful aswell.
I hate to disagree with Smholl but the hawks are offal
I own the forests,winds and sharmans and for the money on the used market the winds are you best buy. I actually had a pair of Hawks and within a month i traded them in for my first pair of winds. I now power my home threater with three sets of winds and what a sound. The forests are very good but they don't have the depth and bass of the winds. I asked the one of the dealers I purchased a pair of winds from why the Hawks sound so bad and he told me that
the Winds, forests and sharmans all have Dynaudio Drivers
monified by Totem and the lower models hawks included
have different drivers. The other speakers I dont have any experience with. You may want to look at the Plinius amp Totem uses to test their speakers and a MSB Dac.
