Desktop Active Speakers


Recommended Posts

Item: Looking for good quality, compact active desktop speakers.

I envisage driving them from a laptop streaming tidal to an Armcan rPac DAC then via RCA analogue cables into the speakers.

In other words wireless connectivity is not a priority

Will be used for near field listening at relatively low volume

So detail, sound stage and neutrality are being sought
Price Range: negotaiable
Item Condition: Used

Canberra based
Extra Info:

@stephenhunter i think Pro Audio is going be the right solution for you.. I note you have said "used" above, but as no budget is quoted some  of these may suit..

I am still using my 15+ year old active monitors (literally as I type) and they have never missed a beat (pun intended) 😃

Thanks

I hadnt thought about this kind of gear!

They certainly look competitive on price, depending on what you choose

But as they seem to be optimised for studio/recording purposes how do they perform in a Hi Fi sense?

Or am I making a false distinction?

Cheers

As you said near field and want accuracy,  these types would seem to fit the bill. 

The shop i linked usuallly has a few pairs set up, not sure of an equivalent in ACT,  but i would be surprised if there wasn't somewhere local that you can demo

Suggest going into Better Music and have a listen to some pro audio speakers

P/s suggest putting a maximum budget.  Technically, my Kii Three qualify as desktop active speakers, but not sure of your budget  :cry:  🤣

Thanks for the suggestion

I will go and see them

I have bought plenty of gear from them over the years when I was playing in bands

 

Cheers
