[ http://www.totemacoustic.com/ ]Company Profile
Founded in Montreal, Canada in 1987, Totem's original mission was to develop a totally new transducer, a loudspeaker capable of reproducing a truly musical and involving performance. The goal was to provide something not currently available on the market--an affordable "soul mover" for the music lover. The "Totem Acoustic"
Name was chosen as an ongoing symbolic representation of this mission and vision. The Totem represents, to the native North American people, an entity that chooses an individual and then guides that person during his or her life. Totem Acoustic is a bridge to higher musical awareness.
Looking for a new way Initial research and development was not profit-oriented; rather, the new company strove to achieve an identity not overly compromised by market pressures. After two years of unconventional research, bypassing traditional institutions such as Canada's National Research Council, Totem was able to bring to market its first small-volume box design, exemplifying the best in speaker design. A speaker should exhibit liveliness and spaciousness of sound, with all the qualities that make live music truly soul moving. Dynamics, transients, decay, harmonics, timbre, and rhythm must be realistically portrayed.
Few speakers address all of these parameters.
