MW - Did you ever try a search engine? Or looking through the archives?

Active means the device has active circuits, it plugs in and has a power supply. Passive doesn't.

Which is better depends on your system and your set up.

Get out of the "Amps" section and look in the "Pre amps" section for a discussion of the two devices.
