    Might have been easier to understand the price increase if Magico had called the new S5 an S6. It appears to be a lot closer to an S7 than it used to be, on paper anyway.

    Buchardt does make active speakers, but the S400IIs and the P300s are passive loudspeakers. And yes, a quick search on the 'Net can be effective in providing info and answers. 😉 Cheers.
