KIN Monitor


The entry level Totem in the Kin series, these little bookshelves pack quite a punch. The Monitors are traditional 2-way passive speakers, replacing the Kin Mini, but with a larger and more rigid cabinet which delivers more power, deeper bass and ultimately, plenty of music.

Dimensions:  130 (W) x 270 (H) x 190 (D) mm
Weight:  3.74kg each


The KIN Monitor doesn’t follow in the footsteps of its compact monitor predecessors. It’s blazing its own trail.

KIN Monitor punches well above its weight with the thunderous excitement, gigantic imaging, and total immersive ability of a heavyweight speaker in a lightweight speaker physique. Highs are ethereal in their detail and buoyancy while bass is stunningly authoritative and expressive.

Kin Monitor is another audio solution by Totem that defies conventional thinking and breaks the boundaries of conventional engineering.

The KIN Monitor is equipped with a 1” metal alloy dome tweeter based on that of the legendary Rainmaker and also found in the award-winning KIN PLAY. Highs are detailed, airy and extraordinarily lifelike.

The customized 4” natural hybrid woofer is composed of paper for its acoustic advantages and treated with a polymer to reinforce its strength and longevity.

Bass is powerful, fast and musical. Nothing is more important than creating Totem’s sonic signature than phase linearity. KIN Monitor drivers were carefully selected because of their harmonious interaction, creating the perfect phase response that provides Totem’s three dimensional , almost holographic soundstage.

Micro ports in each cabinet provide the ultimate in fine tuning, not only in perfecting the bass response but expanding the dimensional soundstage.
