Acoustic Energy AE1 Active powered standmount loudspeaker

That the Acoustic Energy AE1 Active is something of a pleasant surprise is an understatment. It’s the kind of loudspeaker you could happily listen to for hours on end without the slightest complaint. It’s fast, dynamic, yet sophisticated, very open sounding across the midrange, and extends nicely into the treble without complaint or break-up. It extends that unforced, fast and open sound down into the upper bass… and then stops quickly. If you use the boost/cut controls in a small room – there’s nothing to worry about. I hope the animosity that audiophiles have toward active loudspeakers is coming to an end, because they are missing out on some of the finest sounds possible from small loudspeakers.
