Totem Mite Bookshelf Speakers


Introduction

A couple of years ago, a friend and I were on a quest for the perfect bookshelf speaker. With a budget of $1100 a pair this quest certainly had its challenges. Although our needs were slightly different, I was geared more towards hometheater and he towards two channel, we did agree on one thing; the little speaker had to sound "big". In the end we settled on the speakers of our choice and came to the realization that a good speaker design should perform well in both arenas. When I agreed to take the Totem Mite's for a test drive I rekindled my excitement for bookshelf speakers. Audiophiles all over are familiar with the Totem brand. Their reputation for making outstanding loudspeakers is well established. I was curious to see what all the fuss was about. Well, let's find out.
