Topolectrical circuits present themselves as a versatile platform to investigate topological states of matter realized in a classical environment. Among them, the Chern insulator is commonly viewed as the most fundamental one, because it solely relies upon its non-trivial band topology and does not require additional symmetries. The combined breaking of reciprocity and time-reversal symmetry (TRS) as well as minimizing dissipation effects signify the central challenges of a Chern state realization in classical setups. In a passive realization, the breaking of TRS can be circumvented by creating a doubled copy of Chern bands [V. Albert et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 114, 173902]. In contrast, the inclusion of active components allows for a nontrivial topological band structure in direct analogy to the Haldane model [T. Hofmann, T. Helbig et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 122, 247702]. The hallmark of the active Chern state realization is its support of unidirectionally propagating voltage modes at its boundary.
