However, I suspect you are right, I suspect quite a few of the AVI owners have heard few if any other active speakers, yet there are quite a few available now.shropshire lad said:Do we know if Relocated has heard the speakers you mention ? If he has then I would have thought he would have suggested them if he thought they were worth recommending ( I have no opinion as I haven't heard them ), and if he hasn't , then is it realistic to expect him to recommend a product he is not familiar with ?
He has suggested a product he is familiar with and thinks would be worth considering . As always , it is up to the OP to sift through the replies and make his own mind . Please don't start another active/passive , AVI/against the whole World argument as it has become seriously tedious . Thank you .
I know there isn't such an argument at the moment , but you know full well that these sorts of discussions can quickly develop into an unnecessary bun fight and never resolve themself satisfactorily . So I was just hoping that this useful thread doesn't go the same way .
You are also right , that there appears to be an ever increasing availability of domestic active speakers on the market , some of them are even visually acceptable , and if there are members of this forum who have experience of any of them , then I'm sure they will put forward their suggestions . All we have had so far is the suggestion of one member who has experience of one brand of active speaker and your alternative suggestions . Of course , Relocated's big mistake was not putting the postscript at the end of his suggestion that " other brands of active speakers are available " , if you can find them .
