Totem Acoustic provided their home country, Canada, with an early glimpse of the Sky at the TAVES show in Toronto in October 2016 but the true worldwide debut took place recently at the CES 2017 in Las Vegas.

Totem say of their new compact monitor “The Sky will make you fly to a whole new level of appreciation. A compact marvel for all types of source mediums, the Sky offers flexibility, livability and lasting acoustic quality. The Sky delivers an ultra-stable performance specifically in critical vocal and definition areas. Slim, trim and visually self-effacing the Sky truly shines with the latest innovations in speaker design. You will be amazed by the ultra-wide spatial performance coming out  from such a compact package”. 

The Sky is made with unique borosilicate dampening that controls energy release yet keeps the cabinet “musically  alive”.They also feature a specially designed 5-inch driver, and 3-inch voice coil unit with 500W peak transient capacity. The Totem SKY was truly created for an age where value is put on a pure and honest musical rendition. Totem go on to say, “whether on a table top, in a book-shelf or on a dedicated stand, the Sky is optimised to work beautifully close to rear wall boundaries”.
