Totem's All-New Element Series
Timing is everything! Three short weeks ago, Totem unveiled their "Element Series" during a special VIP event at New York's Stereo Exchange. Based upon what we heard, the Element Series wins our vote as Specialty Sound and Vision's "Product of the Year!"
A comprehensive line of three stereo models—“Fire” Monitors ($5,995/pr MSRP), “Earth” and “Metal” Towers ($8,995/pr and $12,995/pr MSRP, respectively)—as well as Center Channel and Subwoofer, these remarkable speakers debut Totem’s revolutionary “Torrent” woofer.
The pinnacle (so far) of Totem President Vince Bruzzese’s illustrious career, the 7-inch Torrent driver incorporates proprietary magnetic technology. Among its many advantages, this application-specific driver eliminates the need for a crossover network so that the amplifier is, in effect, directly coupled to the Torrent Driver. Built to the tolerances of a fine Swiss watch, each Torrent driver requires 8 hours of skilled hand labor!
The Element Series partners the Torrent woofer with the state-of-the-art tweeter developed by Vince for the Tribe V. This stunning tweeter features a 3/8’’ inch thick aluminum face plate and a finned aluminum alloy body for cooling and long-term durability.
Available in gorgeous, multi-coat polyester finishes--Dusk/Black or Ice/White are standard—all Element models include magnetic grilles and are lavishly appointed with custom-crafted aluminum terminal plates, precision machined reflex ports, and two pairs of W.B.T. “Platinum” binding posts.
Shipping January, 2011, the Element Series will have serious music lovers talking…and listening! Place your orders soon!
