Avantone Mixcube, one or two?
      30/03/11 02:22 AM
I've been thoroughly enjoying Mike Senior's book and now I'm happily shopping for Avantone Mixcubes.

Based on the book it sounds like one active Mixcube in mono is the way to go, and I'm inclined to follow the advice strictly as I like powered monitors and it saves money buying just one. But I keep having a nagging feeling as I've always bought speakers in pairs

My budget allows for either one active speaker or a pair of passives. However the only amp I have on hand is an old HiFi Kenwood Receiver with 100W a channel. Is it ridiculous to consider using an amp like this when I'm trying to listen for mix accuracy?
