do yourself a huge favor and save up the money for the better amp. the ones mentioned will do. i have worked on those certain 6 lb noisy fan amps, and my first thought, was "this has to be a joke..." reminded me of those car amps that have "5000 Watts" printed on them for $139 which actually do around 500 watts. they cost less for good reason.

for those amps, $55 to $65 plus return shipping, depending on what is wrong with them. however, there has been times when it has been as low as $45 if it turns out to be something simple. never has it been above $65.
but here is the problem that i was informed about just tonight... starting this Thursday, i start a engineering contract to design a car amp for a company, to be released as a 2015 model. it is late in the year, and they are in panic mode. no idea why they waited so long... but it's going to cost them.
but, i cannot take anything in until it is done... which could be a month from now. while the design work does not take long, i scratch build my own prototypes, and test and tweek them until they are 100%... then straight to production it goes. that is the time consuming part.
