I'm about this >< close to laying money down on my new home theatre system - namely an AVR300 and DV79, but am having some trouble choosing the speakers. I've auditioned what my local shop has, namely Totem, Sonus Faber and Martin Logan. My wife really likes the Totem Forests, with the Sonus Faber Grand Piano Home coming in a close second. Any thoughts on these? For our tastes, the ML's were lacking energy and a little too 'beamy'. I've listened to both and they seem to drive pretty well (both speakers were fairly fresh out of the box and haven't settled down tonally yet), but I have heard that the Forests are demanding to drive. Are there any Totem users here? Am I going to end up needing more amplification to really bring these speakers to life? Any thoughts on the SF's? thanks much for helping a newbie out. I just got here recently and have been lurking while I plan my purchase. cheers S.
