These seem decent but I'm sure an amp and passive speakers would sound better.

Why would they? Edifier are a well respected name in Hifi quality active speaker design. If you are looking for a compact, high quality system which is easy to set up and easy to connect to look no further.
I have a pair of Edifier s2000 pro speakers (£350) and these sound better than my Denon/Mission system which cost £1000 plus.

It isn't always just about the sound quality though, sometimes people just want something with a small footprint to sit on a shelf or desktop. That's the great thing these days, there are all kinds of different systems and set-ups to suit everyone, so whilst you might use an amp and passive speakers in the living room maybe in the bedroom or study you'd use something like this.

A very strange comment and I couldn't disagree more. I think a lot of the latest and great hifi tech are coming as all in one solutions as class d amplifiers allow you to cram more in to a small space. I would say that the advent of cheap digital class d amplifiers also took most of the variance away from sound interpretation of amplifiers so I don't think they have much impact now and it's mainly the speakers.

You get some pretty amazing active speakers these days. Still need a pre-amp, though.

Why would you need a pre amp if the amp to drive the speakers is included?
Genuine question I have these and can't think where a pre amp would be used.
They already sound amazing.

As a complete guess, by using an analogue pre - amp would give the sound produced a more natural analogue sound, over the clinical class D amplifier sound. To some this class D sounds too digital, no soul etc etc.
