The latest product to arrive at Harmony is Totem’s startling new Tribe subwoofer. Featuring a shallow cabinet design, it uses twin 8-inch carbon-fiber drivers to fill even larger size rooms with effortless bass extension. Unlike many subwoofers that rely on ported cabinets to increase output, Totem’s sealed enclosure produces bass that is tight and deep.
Totem Acoustic Tribe Subwoofer
With a cabinet depth of only five inches, you may be wondering how there can be space for the amplifier. Actually, to keep the cabinet size small, it’s housed in a completely separate unit. The Totem Subwoofer Amplifier is a slim component that neatly fits into your equipment rack and feeds the subwoofer a speaker level signal. It features a 500-watt Class D amplifier module, along with separate controls for output, crossover, and phase. The crossover low-pass filter is adjustable between 40Hz and 120Hz, making it compatible with a wide range of speakers. Additionally, the phase control is continuously variable between 0 and 180 degrees, unlike most subwoofers, which only flip the polarity. Having a variable phase control allows you to dial in on the precise setting for your particular setup. An auto-sensing circuit allows for the unit to go into stand-by until it receives a signal, allowing for hands-free operation.
Fitted on the included stand, the Tribe fits easily in almost any room. For those interested in hiding it completely, the subwoofer can be taken off the stand, put on it’s back, and slid under a chair, sofa, or even your bed! The attached vibration absorbers help minimize transmission of bass into other rooms, and a magnetic speaker grill helps keep away prying fingers, as well as softening the overall look.
Overall, the Totem Tribe subwoofer is a welcome addition to Harmony, offering superb performance while taking up very little real estate. What more could you ask for in a sub?

Yamaha introduced their Aventage line of surround sound receivers back in 2010, and the feedback has been phenomenal. All our customers have been raving about the increase in sound quality they notice once they get one home - and we agree, the Aventage line is a noticeable improvement over the standard A/V gear that Yamaha had been producing.
Although it's now officially discontinued, the RX-A2000 still features all the latest technology you could ask for. It's 3-D ready, has 8 HDMI inputs, and 2 outputs and features ARC (Audio Return Channel), which allows the audio from your TV to feed the Yamaha through the normal HDMI cable used to send the TV a picture. It's perfect for keeping your system simple and easy for anyone to use.
The RX-A2000 also has a new on-screen display that can overlay on HD and 3D sources, so you're always in control. Also included is Yamaha's YPAO sound optimization feature, which makes setting it up a snap - and with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio playback, you'll enjoy audio resolution that surpasses any movie theater.
Normally $1500, you can have ours for only $999 - with a full manufacturer's warranty! And if you miss out on this one, remember that we have a wide selection of the latest in the Aventage line.
