Speakers can be divided into two types - passive and active (or powered). Passive speakers are your 'typical' speaker – an enclosure with speaker components only, that you need to connect to a separate amplifier or receiver. Active, or powered, speakers embed the amplifier within the speaker enclosure. Vanatoo speakers have both a passive and an active speaker. An amplifier is embedded in the active speaker to power both. This design is more energy efficient and requires only one power cord, so we felt it was better for home environments than the single channel design, which places separate amplifiers in each speaker, and is a common configuration for studio monitors.
The Transparent Series speakers are extremely easy to set up. Just plug your music source into the desired input on the active speaker, connect the speakers together using the provided speaker interconnect cable and plug the active speaker into the wall power.

The Transparent Series speakers have a number of input options - analog, audio USB, optical TOSLINK®, Bluetooth (some models only) or Coax (some models only)- which allow you to connect to a wide variety of devices and audio networks, such as those from Sonos or Chromecast Audio.
