Active speakers, (self powered) tend to be designed for larger environments and in my opinion do not sound as good. That said Yamaha makes some nice studio monitors that are self powered so there are options out there I just dont think that for the money you are getting a better speaker system.
The traditional Receiver or pre-pro with speakers gives you alot more choice.

EDIT: I forgot to also mention that running line level signals over long distances (to speaker locations) is far more prone to interference than speaker wire plus the cost of XLR or good RCA cables is much higher than wire.
