Actives speakers with optical input


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

To get a more compact installation than my current "TC BMC-2 + Genelec 8020A" combination, i'm looking for some active speakers with optical input and DAC inside.

 

I aldready found this :

 

- ELAC AM 180

- Genelec 8130 APM

 

Do you know these ?

Do you know similard speakers ?

 

Thanks !

I have the Neumann KH-120 and love them (I have the standard analog input set). Supposedly they have a version with digital input, but I don't see them listed anywhere for sale, I have just seen them on the Neumann web site and in the user/instruction manual that came with my set. (You can download the user manual).

Absolutely!

 

But if you're outside the USA, you'll need a transformer!

 

Because they only come in 117V, 60Hz!

Genelec 8130's are great.

 

Paired with:

SE7261A Active DSP Subwoofer

Genelec GLM SE

 

they unfold full range and DSP room correction (19-21kHz).

The KEF doesn't have an optical in does it?

...in my opinion / experience...

While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.

And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.

keep your mind open... But mind your brain doesn't fall out.
