Good day to everyone! Would like to ask people whether it would be possible for people who have heard both the Arx A1b and Swans M200 MKIII to compare the two. It would be interesting to see whether an active speaker (the Swans) can compare to the passive speaker (Arx).


My audio preferences lean towards folk, acoustic, alternative-type music, with a preference for male voices and guitar music.


Hope to hear from a variety of people. Thanks!

I've not heard the Swans but I have Arx. Those are two totally different designed speakers. The Swan is a near field desktop monitor and the Arx is a bookshelf designed to be away from boundries like walls and cabinets. The Arx was designed to be away from the walls and sitting on stands, where as the Swan would work great for either a very small bedroom setup or close listening like sitting on each side of a computer monitor.


Arx tweeter has blown me away as far as strings/guitars are concerned, like Dire Straits.
