Can someone please explain active speakers to me?
Hi. I am browsing around, thinking of where I should spend some money on a new system. I have had all-in-ones until now, but wish to get better quality. I am interested in mainly streaming as I have all(most) my music ripped to lossless WMA (lossless) files on my PC. I will need an amp and speakers and some way to stream, or maybe some active speakers? Is there a big advantage going down this path, or is it simply hype. A friend says I should try both, but it seems to be mainly music shops that stock actives and they are mainly quite ugly.
I have about £2000 to spend. I want small speakers and fuss-free control on the iPhone or Nexus tablet.
