Are you sure about that?  You're prepared to buy the amplifier that goes with it?

Not one person commenting on this forum has seen it, let alone heard it, and you're "in the market"?

No, I'm not sure, that's why I'm asking.

When d&b says "exclusively" for use with their amplifiers, this is truth, not suggestion?

All d&b loudspeakers are absolutely REQUIRED to be used exclusively (in the most literal sense of the word) with d&b amplifiers.

Quite simply, you do not ever use d&b loudspeakers without d&b amplifiers.

I noticed you get presets for some d&b speakers in X and Ottocanali amps from Powersoft. No idea if they are "official"

d&b manufacture remotely amped powered speaker systems;  an approach i frankly wholeheartedly endorse. 

Saying that you 'have to' use d&b amps with their speakers as though that were a bad thing fails to grasp the intent behind the system.  After all, you 'have to' use Meyer amplification with their boxes too. 

This annoying insistence on pairing manufacturer amplification and processing with speaker cabinets leads to a remarkable consistency in deployment.  Which means i can walk into any d&b rig anywhere and know exactly what i'm getting.  And that is a Very Good Thing.

Except the Max series of monitors.  Those require no processing and will work off any amp.

Absolutely true.  Which kinda proves that d&b aren't making you buy their amps just to separate you from your money.

I kinda see them in the 'lab' with the MAX.  They're like, 'whoa, this sounds great out of the box without any special processing.  Should we tell anyone?'  :)

The fact that they did is kinda refreshing.
