I know nothing about these, so, does anybody know of, or can recommend a set of reasonable quality active speakers with the following’ish spec -
Standmount, to be used in a small room.
Good with Rock, non noodly Jazz etc.
Only really need analogue inputs but no issues with digital too.
Doesn’t need wireless or DSP etc but, again, if they have, that’s fine.
Used or new.
Just one thing, those are ‘powered’ rather than active, in that they don’t have active 2-way crossovers (with 4x amplifier channels).
Wether that makes a difference for Mike’s application is another matter.
I’ve had some of these. Ok in a small room, bass light for my taste though so worth adding a cheap sub.
If you can wait, and find a pair of HHB Circle 5A they are very good active monitors that have more of a hifi sound, being built by Harbeth a few years back. I had the passive ones, an easier listen than the AVI.
Should come in around £400.
Ah right, didn’t realise they were collection only. Shame as they’ll probably go for well within budget.
If you’re familiar with ATC’s and like the sound, it might be worth asking on the Avi fb page - they get advertised on there every now and then.
I used to have the passive version of those, lovely little speakers that thrived on power. I bet the active version is very good. Mine needed quite a bit of room behind them for such a small speaker, 50cm minimum.
