NAD stereo and Totem speakers live in perfect harmony

Totem Mite Speakers

Once upon a time, size did matter when it came to home audio systems. Speakers were bigger, amplifier receivers were massive and records were a whopping 12 inches across.

Needless to say, those days are gone.

Whether it's FM radio or streaming music from an MP3 dock, the compact NAD C725BEE stereo receiver paired with Totem Mite speakers ($1,699) is an excellent option for pure musical enjoyment.

NAD makes simple, robust electronics units without the bells and whistles of surround sound. It's perfect for an office or living room or any space where you want to listen to music as your work or read. There's also a subwoofer outlet if you feel the need for more rumble.

The C725BEE - named after the designer, Bjørn Erik Edvardsen - is a simple and clean unit which delivers 50 watts of continuous power per channel. When paired with a set of super compact Totem Mite Speakers (6 inches by 10.8 inches by 8.4 inches with a 5.5 main speaker and one inch soft dome tweeter) the combination delivers amazing sound at exceptional value.

This is true HiFi and the value in this package is almost equally divided between amp and speakers, just the way it should be.
