I heard the Totem and 140's at a dealer. I took the 140's home for a try. Was impressed, so I purchased the 140's, which I custom ordered from the UK. I run them on various tube platforms. My room is 11x13, so it might work for you. My room has extensive room treatments that I am sure effect the sound I get. In the interest of full disclosure, I am a ProAc fan. I still have and use the 1SC's and Tablettes. If I have one reservation about the 140's it is that they could see improvement in the bass. I am in the process of putting my NHT subs to a try, outside the 140's.
