I had the LSR 2325p as L/R Wides in my 9.1 HT. They kept up with the other speakers in the system. While recently doing some speaker testing, they were in the system with NHT Super Ones as the other smalls, while I was switching between Meridian DSP 5000 and GoldenEar Triton Sevens as the main left and right. I ended up buying the Sevens.
Among the connections on the 2325P is RCA, don't know about the 305s. The Meridians are also active, powered speakers. The Trition Sevens and Super Ones are passive. They were all connected to an Onkyo TX-NR 929, including a Sunfire sub. They were by far the least expensive speakers in my HT, yet they performed great. In fact, the bass output was the equivalent of the Super Ones with their bigger 6.5" woofer.
They make you think hard about active speakers. I bought them on a whim and then read a review of them and the newer 305. As good as the reviews were they thought the 305s were a notch better. And those prices you're talking about make them look like the buy of the Millennium.
