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?
