  • Summary: I've heard all the speakers in the Totem line, many times, and even owned a few of them, and the ones that I haven't owned, I've had on loan from my dealer. So let's just say I know Totem pretty well. The Sttafs are the sweet spot in the Totem line. Walking that fine line between excellent sound, and affordability.

  • Summary: Have paired these Totem Staff with Musical Fidelity A5 Integrated Amplifier. Main source of Music is an IPod played thru the Wadia 170i I Pod Doc and utilizing the Music Hall DAC 25.2 Love the sound staging an imaging of these speakers. Though they do not have the deepest bass i recently purchased a Totem Storm Sub. Now I have the best of both worlds. The imaging and sound staging is still outstanding and now with the Storm Sub I have the bottom octaves cover.

  • Summary: I upgraded my audio gear from NAD to Van Medevoort, a high end dutch audio equipment manufacturer. So, the next step was to look for a new pair of speakers. I had Dali serie Blue "Live" for more than 5 years. I first noticed, when auditioning, the big sound difference coming from each type of speaker. JM Lab, Focal, ALR Jordan, Dali, B&W, Kef, Hepta, Epos, Mission, Tannoy you name it, and I heard them.

  • Summary: The Totem Acoustic Sttaf gets my vote for the best quality of build and sound for your hard earned dollar. My first speaker from Totem was their Hawk model and I am convinced it is their best speaker, and the best choice for under $3,000 - period! But....I wanted to get into tube electronics and ended up buying a 40 wpc Primaluna Prologue 2 integrated tube amplifier, which made it necessary to find a speaker that could be driven properly, with proper dynamics and great...

  • Summary: This is my first write-up here at the reviews. I cannot think of a better way to break the ice than to briefly summarize my experience and impressions of Totem’s often over-looked achievement, the “Sttaf”. There is no higher accolade I can give the Sttaf than to say that through the plethora of speakers that have come through these doors in these past few years – none other have brought as much listening pleasure as these two divine miniature towers.

  • Summary: I recently picked up some Totem speakers and a pair of Staff's was included in the bunch. They were slightly cosmetically damaged in shipping so I decided to hook them up to make sure they were still functioning properly. Well, to make a long story short, I will not be selling these speakers and they will stay here for quite some time. I am ran them off a Jolida JD301 Hybrid at 30 watts per for most of my evaluation.

  • Summary: Purchased these used Totem Sttafs on the internet. These speakers are the older one had two blue dots on tweeters. But are equally impressive. First thing that caught my ears is the clear, detailed, and very involving wide soundstage.Close your eyes and focus on the music, the speakers seem to "disappear" with its amazing performance. In my room, the bass is great, certainly not need for subwoofer.

  • Summary: Being a student and a little shy in the financial dept, it was a long painstaking trip to determine what speakers to purchase. I was looking for a product that was within my budget (>1500 C$) but still would sonicly handle a amplifier upgrade in the future. Currently I am using a Cambridge audio CD4-SE (which I bought buy accident, not realizing that it is a phenominal player for the money-check out the reviews!) and a '97 Rotel RA-971BX.

  • Summary: Found and purchased these used Totem Sttafs on the internet. These are the latest edition Sttafs with, from what I have been told, an improved tweeter and crossover. The latest edition Sttaf has a blue dot on the top side of the tweeter whereas the older one had two blue dots on either side. These speakers are impressive. The cabinet assembly work and finish are outstanding. They look good and their minimal weight makes them a pleasure to move around.

  • Summary: Goose bumps! Remember goose bumps? These speakers will give them to you. They are very precise, clear and the detail is really incredible. They just sound good! They don't play incredibly loud and would be best used in rooms of smaller dimensions. Mine are in 20' x 18' x 20' high ceilings. If you like blues, jazz or softer pop or country consider these. They are not terribly efficient (87db) so have some amp power. The quality of the cabinets is first rate.
