active speaker management to do away with expensive analog crossovers?

it appears that there is a huge move towards active speaker management.  why wouldnt a budding audiophile opt for this instead of spending thousands on someone elses idea of perfect crossover frequencies?
Tons of active speakers, mainly studio monitors, are doing fully digital crossovers. It’s a simple fact most people with audio systems, even if they can afford it, don’t have the knowledge to properly use digital crossover software, as you aren’t just finding a good frequency, the phase is also important, as well as some other parameters, like the slope.
