I am on the hunt for new speakers but can't find a good place to read reviews and stuff..

 


The speakers are Audioengine A5's. There's a thousand and one reviews about 'em.

Are those Dynaudio drivers in the Totem speakers?

Either that, Morel, Jantzen, or HiVi, if my memory serves me correctly. All four makes these large voice coil vented woofers.

EDIT: HiVi D6.8

Is that a stand alone EQ you have on the bottom right of the right hand screen? If so please can let me know what it is.

 

If not, can anybody recommend a stand alone EQ for use on spotify please?

It's a professional VST EQ, Kjaerhus Classic. I switch between that one, PLParEQ, and Electri-Q, depending on what I need at the moment.

 

You can run any VST plugin system-wide on Windows, with tools like VSTHost and Virtual Audio Cable.

Thanks for your speedy advice dfkt! I am going to investigate the Electri-Q as it seems to offer the sort of thing I'm after.

I assume this was directed at me. I got the Tannoy's because, as he noticed in the review, there was so much more clarity and depth. I was comparing the KRK RP6G2 against these Tannoy's (i have the same model as the review I'm almost positive, too lazy to check :P) and the thing I noticed most was the highs. It sounded like there were no highs hardly at all in the KRKs, but they stood out equally as much as the bass with the Tannoy's, which amde a big difference. I just couldn't stand the highs on the KRKs and how terrible they were. I just couldn't hear them over the bass like I could with the Tannoy's with the same track same settings and everything. Plus, I got the Tannoy's on sale for $135 each so yeah I'm happy with my choice. Not the speakers fault, but the sound really sounds crappy when I crank em' up because I am using light phonebooks as stands and I have no amp - just 3.5mm headphone out of my mobo on my computer to unbalanced (the not XLR port). Oh yeah, any suggestions on an amp for these? There were some pads at $40/pair at Guitar Center  i will get. Also, what exactly is a DAC? I know Digital to Analog, but why convert a digital sound to analog? Wouldn't that just lose quality? I've never understood this.

Mostly chilled ambience for really mellowing out to in the vein of the Orb, Eno, although Fuzzy Peachy is fairly pumping!

I've heard that Totem originally used Dynaudio drivers but switched to other manufactures awhile ago. The only info I found regarding the drivers is from a 2001 Stereophile review, not sure if this applies to new models.

 

"The Forest is a two-way, floorstanding tower loudspeaker with two drive-units—a 1" SEAS aluminum-dome tweeter and, below that, an Acoustic Technology International (ATI) 6.5" midrange/bass driver"

 

 

As for the sound, I would describe the Forest speakers as warm with a slight midrange emphasis. The highs are clean and smooth without being harsh and some may consider it rolled off. Overall I am very happy with the speakers. I had a pair of ProAc Reference 8 Signatures prior to the Totems and I miss them at times but they were too small for my room and didn't play well with heavy bass music. At some point I will probably go back to ProAc when I can afford a pair of towers.
