Is using active near-field reference monitors for home theater use ideal? The Denon AVR-4311 with Audyssey 11.1 technology and (11) Yamaha HS80M seems very appealing.
In the description of these speakers we see the terms "active", "near-field", and "reference monitors". I'm not sure about the near-field part, but otherwise I think these should be ideal for home theater. Can someone shed some expert light on the subject?
