Salk has introduced a new small 2-way speaker that is fully active with a built-in digital crossover and 2 built-in amps: http:\/\/www.salksound.com\/powerplaymonitor-home.htm.\n\nHere's another web page that better describes these speakers: http:\/\/landing.salksound.com\/powerplay.html\n\nThe woofers appear quite nice: Seas Prestige U16RCY\/P 6" woven polypropylene drivers with curved cone\nhttps:\/\/www.madisoundspeakerstore.com\/approx-6-7-woofers\/seas-prestige-u16rcy\/p-h1520-08-6-curv-cone-woofer\/\n\nAnd the tweeters are the well-known high quality Hiquphon OW I ¾" silk dome tweeters http:\/\/www.hiquphon.dk\/page4.html\n\nEach speaker cabinet has a built-in digital crossover and two built-in class D 50 watt amplifiers, one for each driver. At $2195 per pair they aren't cheap. But they can accept digital (S\/PDIF or USB) or analog inputs, and also have sub woofer outputs. They don't require separate amps, preamp or DAC. Included is a remote control. All an owner has to do is connect them to a computer, smart phone, or TV, and plug them into a standard 120 volt AC power source.\n\nIt looks to me like Salk is testing the waters with this model. If it is successful, I would expect more to follow.
