hey there, im gonna get my dad some new speakers for christmas. He has the 1014, paired with jbl, so im gonna get him new speakers to fit beside his tv, the jbl's are too fat. im lookin at the polk audio floorstanders... cant remember the model num. their about $1100. are these good paired with the 1014? any other "skinny" speaker suggestions?
In the Polk line I'm guessing you are thinking of the RTi line. At least I would advise you to. Stay away from the Monitor line at Circuit City as the RTi line uses better drivers. Take a look at the Rti8 and RTi10. Both will go well with your Dad's receiver. I would think the RTi8 would do just fine. Take a look at them on the Polk website for more info. Good luck.
Can't give you an honest answer as I have never had a Totem dealer anywhere near me so have never heard them. If it's raw power you are worried about the 1014 has plenty but I can't say if it matches well with Totem.
