Advances in loudspeaker technology, combined with cleverly chosen cost-saving measures, can lead to loudspeakers like the small active monitors discussed here. With a list price of just 349 euros – currently in a campaign for only 259 euros – the Pulheim-based loudspeaker specialists at Magnat Audio-Produkte GmbH have succeeded in setting up an extremely honest, uncomplicated stereo set that is affordable for everyone.
Novel technologies or complex digital trickery were not necessary for this. The Magnat Monitor Active 2000, successor to the 2017 Multi Monitor 220 models, are built according to the widespread concept of active two-way stereo speakers. More precisely, it is an active master loudspeaker plus a passive slave which is connected to the master by means of a loudspeaker cable.
Already with the packaging and its contents it becomes clear that we are not dealing with grandiose high-end airs. In the simple box with styrofoam protectors you will find the multilingual instructions and the two loudspeakers with attachable front cover, a power cord, an approx. 3 m long loudspeaker cable with tinned strands and a mini remote control.
