Re. Robert Pranagal's answer


Explanation:
An integrated amplifier combines the power amplifier and preamplifier sections in one "box" and usually refers to a stand-alone piece of audio equipment.

In an active speaker the amplifier _is_ integrated, but it would be misleading to call it so.

Cheers,
