i have had the passive version in my home for over a decade. it is one of the most versatle loudspeakers in terms of placement, and i have never tired of the 'sounds' that come from it. it can be used in a big room or small room, and though i have it currently in a system with mac gear, its character doesn't change much, even when i've switched amps and pre's experimenting. it loves power though to be as dynamic as the best loudspeaker systems available, and i suspect the active version gives it just such power. i will say you can spend less and get just as much, but i could sat that about many loudspeakers in the 4 to 5k range. other true full range speakers,(though not active), i would recommend would be hales revelation 3, AR 9 limited or classic 30, dunlavy sc3 or 4, chapmans t7, castle howard, shahinian arc, snell b, and various ohm. all but the castle love juice, and all sound great with any kind of music, not just the simple stuff.
