The Totem Sky Tower is $2500 CAD.

They had nearly 40 hours on them at the time of posting, and will have 200 hours of burn in by Thursday, September 14th.

This is the minimum amount of time we put on any component before evaluating its performance. Some electronics take upwards of 500 hours.

Totem recommends between 40-200 hours of break in on most of their speakers. We stick to the upper end on all speakers.

Try the Reference 3A line, the 'Dulcet' specifically ($2k/pair -as Tote Shy); if minds blown with sky, it may melt when auditioning Dulcet.

(BTW, REF 3A is also a Canadian company -Kitchener, Ont. no less !)

Nothing like bringing a cat to the dog show. The thread is about the Totem Sky towers. Of course there are going to be “better” speakers out there, but I don’t think that’s the point of this thread!

Hi Sthomas1049: But it should be; to me, it's about truths -and letting folks/readers know their investment (near $2K for the T-Shy's) is a considerable one-and other options exist, in this case, many more to consider.

pj
BTW, you may wish to dispense with your 'humping' profile pic/character -it may reveal more than you know !

What truths? Given the Sky tower is fresh off the press, how do you know it is better or worse than the Dulcet or any other speaker similarly priced? You don’t! Purely subjective comment (and biased!) which TBH does not belong here. The Dulcet may tickle you in all the right places but that does not mean it is the right speaker for anyone else.

Of course there are options – I don’t think members of CAM are that naïve to not realise that. This is a thread created by a dealer promoting a speaker that many are interested in. Have a little respect.

You're right.

BUT, dispense with your humping ego.

BTW: I forgot it was the Sky Towers -not Sky stand-mount, that I was referencing.
And, you're right -I've not heard those.
