The Avantone Mixcubes are a great replacement for the classic Auratone passive speakers. Plus, these are active so you don't need to find an amp to run them! The AVANTONE MixCubes™ are shielded, full-range studio mini-reference monitors. Their design is inspired by the legacy of the 5C Sound Cubes™ used in virtually all-major studios for the last 25 years. The Avantone Active Mixcubes are designed to be high-resolution, full-range powered mini-reference monitors for fixed or remote locations.
