Active speakers are also called active speakers. I recommend "Digital Broadcast + Active Speakers". It is not to say that active speakers are "better" than passive speakers. Active and passive speakers have their own advantages. In the audio system, the speaker is the most distorted part, and the most varied in timbre. If you want to adjust the sound performance as you like, then passive speakers are more suitable. There are a wealth of pre- and post-amplifiers to choose and match. Breaking up! However, the choice of speakers and the matching of amplifiers are also very headaches. The quarrels on the forum have never ceased ... Active speakers, especially suitable active monitor speakers, manufacturers have already put in speaker units and amplifier modules. The optimized combination has been performed, and its performance is in line with the expectations of the design team. As a consumer, if the purpose is to listen to music rather than "playing audio", then choosing active speakers will be much easier.
Monitor speakers, originally a tool for music producers, have extremely high requirements for dynamic and frequency response. Monitor speakers generally reflect the sound source more directly. Therefore, in the analog era, only a few people in the industry who can obtain high-quality sound sources will use monitor speakers to enjoy music, while the popular consumer cassette tapes, low-end black Turntables still need to be modified and beautified by amplifiers and speakers, and sacrifice performance to get a better subjective listening experience. In the CD digital era of the late last century, the famous B & W 801, ATC 20 and even West Lake 6.75 and other civilian speakers, the original version was developed for the CD monitor studio monitor speakers. Appropriate modification of family conditions has achieved great success in the field of civilian HI-FI. Now that we have entered the digital age of the Internet, digital music files with higher specifications than CDs can be close to the studio mastering parameters. This is for ordinary music lovers to obtain more authentic music performance by monitoring speakers , Provides realistic conditions.
The era of JBL is the world of passive monitor speakers. Starting in the 1980s, active monitor speakers began to dominate the world. After all, the manufacturers tuned consistently to achieve better performance. "Digital broadcast + active" is to listen to music as a request. There are Zhenli, ADAM and other excellent active monitor speakers to choose from. There are also brands that are more familiar to traditional enthusiasts such as Dynah, FOCAL, ATC, PMC, etc. The surface is still very wide.
If you are worried that the sound of the active monitor speakers is too high, and you like more modified sounds, many traditional HI-FI speaker brands have launched active speakers, such as DALI, KEF, etc .; in addition to active monitors, Dana also has multimedia XEO series and more HI-FI XD series. Of course, I personally prefer to recommend active monitor speakers, which can better restore the music expressed by music creators.
