Hi all, I know this is a debated topic around the Internet but wanted to get some thoughts on this forum. In an office environment, how would you compare the performance of studio monitors like Adam T5V/T7V, Mackie MR624, JBL, etc. with internal bi-amp capabilities and XLR vs. something passive like the ELAC B6.2 or Emotiva B1+ with a single amp like the Emotiva BASX A-100 and RCA only?
The studio monitors are definitely the best value pricewise, but curious from a performance perspective. Do you think the Emotiva amp would outperform the internal amps on the studio monitors? Would I gain anything from stepping up from any of these studio monitors to something like the B6.2’s, B1+'s, or similar passive speakers under $500?
