Actually, the 2031P model is passive speaker. However, it is also a 4 ohm speaker, and the VSX521k is only rated for 6 ohm speakers. That means it would probably work, but you'd risk overheating or damaging the receiver (or just going into protect mode), especially at higher volumes. Not a recommended combo. Look for speakers that are 6 or 8 ohms instead.

I did not buy the receiver yet so still time enough to look for one that can work with the 2031P.
How about the Pioneer VSX-1020-K ? I can get one for a good price.
Or can someone recommend a (inexpensive) av receiver that i can use

after reading a lot on the net i think i will buy the 2031 active speakers. i already have a set of active speakers(linkwitz pluto) and the behringers could be good for a 5.1 set up as rear speakers.

I had some behringer pro audio gear in the past. The pmx2000 pieered mixer sounded good, but lacked in the amplifier department. No bottom end sound compared to some others I used. I would also point out that getting into an Atmos setup with discreet ceiling speakers is money well spent. I was a professional DJ for ten years, and I've been into home theatre since stereo/before surround sound. I can truly say Atmos is the first thing that has impressed me since the inception of 5.1. Seriously; 5.1.2. Is far better than 7.1 or anything before it. You can get a pioneer VSX1131 for under $300 on eBay. Do that then get speakers to go with it. I would also point you in the direction of JBL Northridge, or studio series stuff. You can get it cheap used, and they sound great. Hope this helps
