Got Active Speakers. Do I Need An Amp?
Having recently moved into my own place for the first time, I have got hooked on the whole audio/visual world but know diddly squat about it! I am trying to learn through the great mag and forums like this, but still have about a million questions to ask, so this forum should prove to be a God send, i hope! Please forgive any stupid questions as i really am new to it all.
My first queston is this. Do i need an amp if i have active speakers?
I own a pair of active M-Audio- Studiophile BX5 (any good?) speakers which i want to use. I need to buy a cd player (was reading about the Marantz CD6002) but dont want and havent got space for an amp unless i really really have to. Will the set up work if i plug the speaker straight into the player?
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
