The new active bookshelf Magnat Active 2000 are positioned as an affordable and universal solution for lovers of music, cinema and games. This two-speaker set with built-in amplification requires no additional hardware—all you need is a wired or wireless source. The manufacturer promised high-quality Hi-Fi sound, simple controls and seamless integration into any home system – both from a technical point of view and in terms of interior design.
The new speakers differ from the previously released Magnat Multimonitor 220 active bookshelf speakers with slightly reduced functionality, slightly reduced performance and, accordingly, compactness. The Magnat Active 2000 acoustics received a 25 mm tweeter with a ferrite magnet and a 125 mm midrange/bass driver with a paper membrane and a special durable coating. The leading speaker contains two 35 W power amplifiers and a common preamplifier. According to Magnat, the circuit is designed for maximum performance.
As for switching, the model can receive a signal via Bluetooth 4.1, an optical connector (the built-in DAC supports quality up to 24 bit/192 kHz), classic RCA with Line/Phono modes (only for turntables with MM heads) and AUX. Source selection is possible both from the remote control and using the switch on the speaker itself.
Among other things, the company paid attention to the relatively small dimensions (speaker height – 29 cm) and durable MDF cabinets with wood finish. The weight of the leading column was 4.4 kg, the driven one weighed 3.8 kg.
