Bought these new from local dealer (retail 1195.00). They use Epos drivers and a Creek 60 watt amp. They include ipod dock, a built in FM receiver. They can access internet radio which can be streamed from your computer via built in WIFI or connect thru an Ethernet RJ45 on the rear panel. Comes with a small remote for vol, mute,and source switching. They will throw a large soundstage, imaging is pinpoint and like good monitors they will disappear. Bass is phenominal for their size. Great ipod SQ. The top plastic cover which folds back to insert your ipod has a few small scratches on the plastic, otherwise they are in perfect condition. I do not have the original cartons. Asking 625.00 OBO Please add 3% PayPal plus shipping.
Google Aktimate Maxi for reviews. Here is a link to one. http://www.whathifi.com/Review/Epoz-Aktimate-Maxi/
Utilizing amplifier technology from Creek, and loudspeaker technology from Epos, the Aktimate Maxi is a serious active loudspeaker with a host of great features that make it perfect for use with your iPod or other portable audio player. The performance and pedigree of a high end audio speaker, with the flexibility to match today's PC and portable music players
The Aktimate Maxi is the big brother of the Mini. A more powerful amplifier (60 watts) and larger midbass driver ensure deeper bass and greater output. But the Maxi also includes an FM receiver, and a “Reciva” media module which allows you to access internet radio together with the ability to stream from any Windows or UPnP shared network on your computer. To access the network you either connect via the Ethernet RJ45 on the rear panel, or wirelessly using the AktiMate Maxi’s internal Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g.
The enhanced functionality is easy to use thanks to the addition of an illuminated LCD screen on the front of the powered speaker. The menu itself is clear and easy to navigate, either via the remote or the knob on the front panel. And the options are plentiful.
