Overview

Totem Bison Monitor Bookshelf Speakers

Defying All Expectations

The made-in-Canada Bison Monitor redefines the luxury bookshelf speaker category by defying the visual expectations associated with such a small-volume enclosure. Purposefully designed to engage the broadest music lover audience to date, the Monitor Bison marries the signature Totem characteristics of enormous imaging, phase coherence, and remarkable bass response with broad amplifier compatibility and prodigious power handling. Experience Totem’s never-ending quest for an affordable soul mover of the highest caliber. Regardless of what other audio components you pair this speaker with – whether it’s the KIN AMP, an exotic tube amplifier or a cutting-edge Totem surround system – it will reward you with a superior listening enjoyment.

Customized Drivers

Every single driver is completely unique to Totem and proprietary in design, engineered by Totem and then manufactured to the strictest standards to meet their parameters by the finest raw driver suppliers in the world. In some cases, where the technology is beyond the capabilities of suppliers or is wished to kept secret, Totem can and will build their own drivers. Every driver exhibits phase linearity, speed, emotion, off axis natural presentation, and spatial articulation.

Handmade Crossovers

Totem crossovers don’t require many parts because of the synergy between their customized drivers. The crossovers aren’t built on PCB’s because the laminated conductive tracks are weak and inconsistent. Instead they are secured to a thin piece of fiberboard or insulated polymers and components are mechanically crimped together because it simply sounds better. When Totem must solder, they choose WBT Silver Solder, the purest in the industry.

Artisanal Cabinet Construction

Meticulously hand crafted for peak performance that lasts decades. Lock-Miter assembly is an intricate woodworking procedure where edges physically interlock together. The resulting cabinet is up to 5 times stronger than conventional V Groove cabinets. Internal and external veneering resists warping, structurally fortifies, and ensures consistent peak performance. Industry unique Borosilicate damping manages dissipation, keeps the cabinet musically alive, and never deteriorates. Popular materials like poly fillers eventually decay, dramatically affecting the performance. Variable Density Fiberboard is denser at the extremities than the interior to reduce repetitive nodes and resonances.
