FS: Totem Signature One Speakers

Call me crazy, but I'm parting with my 18 month-old Totem Signature One's in black finish. These are the all new redesign of the Model 1, the speaker that launched Totem 30+ years ago. The new cabinet is about 25% larger and uses a 6.5in driver. The sound difference from the original is fuller and richer sounding as the bass extension is deeper. The mids and top end are Totem thru and thru, along with the company's signature room-filling imaging. I wouldn't sell, but I have a shot at a pair of the new Forrest Signature and can't resist!

I'm asking $1800 (new $2700), there is a pair on Audiogon right now for $1900 plus tax if you live in a state that requires collection as the Audiogon seller is a business. Payment is by PayPal, shipping from 97874 via Fedex in its original packing and box. Measurements are: 38x18x12, weight is 40 lbs. **Remember when calculating shipping to include insurance**.

    Yes, based upon Totem's proprietary design standard.

    I’ve owned a handful of Totel loudspeakers. Very well built and they sound very neutral and balanced.
    CTC BBQ Amplifier, Sonic Frontiers Line3 Pre-Amplifier and Wadia 581 SACD player. Speakers? Always changing but for now, Mission Argonauts I picked up for $50 bucks, mint.

    My father owns a pair of these.

    They are fantastic speakers!

    For this price, it’s hard to go wrong.
