Pop, classical and jazz are all presented beautifully and honestly with amazing bass extension, foundation and substance. Adaptable and easy to use in conjunction with many affordable stereo and A/V electronics, it nonetheless shines in all musical and performance aspects. The Sttafs proportions, cabinetry and classical elegance make for easy placement in any room environment.Huge, large-gauge, air core coils in the crossover guarantee that the speaker will never saturate in the. Adaptable and easy to use with many affordable stereo and A/V electronics. Like most Totem speakers, Sttaf is compact and takes up very little floor space - barely 6 ½" wide, 9 ½" deep, and standing 35 tall. The speaker is attached to its base "plinth" via a putty compound placed at the four corners. The base is also equipped with threaded receptacles for carpet spikes or soft rubber feet.
The finish is typical of Totem; excellent veneering, in this case, mahogany. The edges are chamfered on all eight exposed edges. Internally braced, the cabinet is constructed of solid MDF, also dampened with borosilicate. The mandatory knock-around yielded solid yet interesting results. The sound differs whether you knock on the back, front, or top, the sound is rather chamber-like instead of dead, unlike most MDF enclosures.
The modestly scaled Sttaf has the tweeter and woofer mounted right at the top. In a sitting position this places both drivers at approximately ear level. The tweeter's flange measures almost the width of the modest woofer.It's a typical two-way design with the crossover set at 2.5 kHz, 2nd order. Complimenting the 1" textile dome tweeter is a 5 ½" "long-throw" polypropylene woofer. Sttaf is rated at 8 ohms with a sensitivity of 88 dB, and it handles up to 100 watts. It also boasts deep enough bass to 39 Hz within typically ± 3 dB. On the rear you'll find a pair of holes, one approximately 2" in diameter is a cabinet port placed about half way up, and the second, smaller one is placed much lower, about 5" up, for filling with some form of ballast (lead shot or sand). Up top, Sttaf has a pair of binding posts and gold-plated bridges installed if you have no interest in bi-wiring.
Vented, Bass Reflex Enclosure with variable mass-loading chamber to allow for adding sand to dampen as needed. Drivers: one, 1" Dome Tweeter and one, 5.25" Woofer. MFR: 39 Hz - 22 kHz ± 3 dB. Recommended Amplifier Power: 20-100 W. Dimensions: 35" H x 6.5" W x 9.5 D.
They have been boxed for storage since June, 2017. I can tell you that they do sound Very Very good. The soft-dome tweeter is more mellow when compared to the metal units found in the Rainmaker bookshelf speakers. The rear port is sensitive to wall/corner placement. Keep at least two feet from the corner and one foot from the wall.
