ACTIVE SPEAKERS: The box-swapper’s biggest nightmare?

I'm thinking about taking the plunge and going active but I'm not sure how I would connect the speakers to my amp. I use a Marantz Pearl Lite integrated, which has RCA outputs galore but no XLR sockets. Most active speakers seem to use XLR connections or TS sockets (whatever they are). How do I join everything together so nice noises come out of the speakers (told you it was a beginner's question)? Note: The Marantz amp can be used purely as a pre-amp so I expect I'll keep it in case the Active experiment doesn't work out. Thanks. Nigel
