I'm not surprised at all since I've noticed similar over 20 years ago.
But regarding active monitors what would your budget be?
They come in all sizes and price brackets, from little boxes with 4" woofers to big 4way beasts with four 15" woofers each.
If you go up in size at some point the electronics will not be in the box anymore but racked separately.
My budget is $1K for a pair of monitors, with 6 to 8 inch mid driver, and a subwoofer. But I'd stretch the budget range a bit more to get better sound quality.
Assuming that you are in North America check out what Vintage King has.
From what I hear the little JBLs are very good for the money and would fit your budget.
Always listen before you buy!
Your local pro shop (if you got one) may have different makes and may also let you borrow a pair over the weekend or so.
Are there Audiogon-like market places for used pro audio?
There are a few here in the UK like FunkyJunk (Proaudio Europe), Larkins List or LMC (mostly PA gear).
Not that much choice though as the turn over in pro audio is quite small, used gear mostly comes from studios which went bust.
Vintage King in the US also sell used equipment.
Do your homework and check into Adams studio monitors.
You can get a pair for 1200-1300
They will blow away many a monitor
