I was comparing Tektons, not Totems, but Eric at Tekton mentions a lot of similar characteristics his speakers share with Totems.
Have had some very nice looking Tekton Mini Lores in walnut setup in my main room (see system details) pretty much the same location as my Tekton 6.5t monitors on nice stands. Overall, the Mini Lores are a more dynamic and fuller sounding speaker compared to the 6.5t monitors. But the Lores also sounded a little slower. After getting Soundocity Outriggers (model SEV9 bolted right up to the spike mounts on the Mini Lores) installed on the Mini Lores, I now hear the same pace and imaging as the 6.5t monitors but the Lores are more musical with fuller range (I don't think I would ever need more bass in my room).
If you have any of Eric's Tekton Lores, I would recommend getting some Outriggers from Paul at Soundocity! I am not affiliated with either company.
Will post updated picts soon.
