Hey friends..
Last year i spent a lot of time on hfivision and other places on the net looking for good active spearkers which had audiophile quality sound, a lot of input options, ipod dock and easy setup.

Finally i settled for Aktimate Maxi from Alliance in Bbay, which were on sale at that time. also i ordered a E-mu 0204 usb dac from US.
Overall turned out to be a reasonably good setup.

But what i am looking for here is a true active(read powered) hi-fi setup which can compete with similarly priced passive+amp setup. And i need options.

The meridian M6 is about 5 lakhs in delhi. @ sound of music
There is also the B&O beolab 9 for about 5 lakhs in delhi. - again sound of music i think..
There is a also a Linn activ system with linn majik 140 and linn majik dsm for about 5 lakhs in bbay.

But somehow they dont feel right for 5 lakhs? Are there any other better options for under 5 lakhs available here.

Please list them and comment on them here!

And has anyone heard the Beolab 9 and the Meridian M6? Are these truly HiFi or jus a gimmick?

What is the correct amount one really needs to spend to get good quality active speakers?


Lots of questions. Please someone post some answers?
Thanks

For good active speakers, prices could start at about one lakh for a small stereo active speaker system and could go up to several lakhs depending on how much SPL you want your speaker system to deliver. You could visit our Genelec showroom when you next visit Bombay and check out the active speaker systems on display PANDAM Professional Audio

Other than Genelec, all these active speaker brands are available in India :- Adam, Alesis, ATC, Avantone, Barefoot, Behringer, Blue Sky, Dynaudio, Event, Equator, F.A.R., Focal, Fostex, JBL, K&H Neumann, KRK, Legend Acoustics, M-Audio, Mackie, Meridian, Meyer Sound, PMC, Quested, RCF, Roland, Samson, sE Electronics, Sonodyne, Spendor, Tannoy, Tapco, Yamaha etc etc.

you can find good actives in ur price range like Klein Hummel O300, Genelec 8260 (little extra), atc actives like 16A and higher model, Focal 6BE twins, etc.
Though these are monitors used in studios normally but with good recordings and aproper DAC , you will get to hear the sound the engineer has recorded.
