Price: $2650 per pair


Jason said: The Totem is a winner in large part due to its extremely refined treble, which strokes the ear rather than poking at it in the name of detail. Add in the million-mile depth of the Signature Ones’ soundstages, their tight and authoritative bass, and their disappearing-act imaging, and your $2650 buys you a lot of speaker in two little boxes.

Read the SoundStage! Hi-Fi review.

The gist: Worthy successor to the venerable Totem Acoustic Model 1.
