Acoustic Energy's new Speakers the AE1 Active is out and AV Forums has given their verdict
A V Forums gives the AE1 Active from Acoustic Energy the once over in a new review. The AE1 Active's price at the time of the review was £1,000.00. The AE1 Active gets 9 out of 10 from the respected reviewer.

■ The main positives are: Refined yet punchy and accurate sound - Well made - Flexible in terms of partnering equipment - Handsome and well made.

■ Negatives points were: Won't flatter poor equipment and signals - Wood finish a little orange - Ultimate limits to headroom.

AV Forums summarises the AE1 Active as "Viewed from an industry standpoint, there really hasn't been a better time for a manufacturer to release a conventional' (by which I mean non self-contained) active speaker. The sheer range of source equipment that has preamp functionality – and good preamp functionality at that – on the market is huge and continues to grow. The Acoustic Energy AE1 Active completes a system quickly and efficiently and in a way that makes total sense for modern setups where the boundaries between source and control are increasingly blurred.".
