Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Seeking recommendations for SMOOTH and warm powered monitors. Thank you!

I remember reading about the Audioengine 2 years ago in Stereophile when I was looking for desktop speakers. As I remember, it had a somewhat controversial EQ boost in the mid-upper bass and a dip in the upper mids, which is a design trick sometimes used to make small speakers sound bigger. The Paradigm Atom and Totem Rainmaker are a couple of other small speakers I've heard that do this trick. The Rainmaker is definitely not for you (metal tweeter, tipped up treble), but the Atom might be a good substitute even though it's passive.

Do they have to be active speakers? I think you might have a hard time finding active speakers with the sound signature you're looking for, unless you're going to put EQ in front of them.
