Hey all, I need some small amp guidance on powering a couple Boston Acoustics A40 speakers over wifi out in my shop. I finally got a computer hooked up out there where I can stream music from the house reliably and had dug out a old 2.1 Sony set for testing.
Was supposed to be easy, just buy a mini amp and I'm good to go.
I am not a audiophile, but like anyone else here, I like good sound and am keen on clarity. The A40s will work just fine since I like to work to music thats on the lighter side with clarity through mid/upper range. Lotsa light strings and female vocals.
So heres were I had to break down and ask......
So, in research, I read that the Lapei Tripath 2020+ should be a good fit for a 40-50 dollar set of speakers. Found one on ebay that I thought was with one of the original Tripath chips. I have reluctantly come to terms with buying chinese in cases like this, but I drew the line when I noticed that 'Impedence' was spelled 'Imdence' on the case.
Lepy brand is obviously out of the same house since the same can be found on their case as well.
While I was on Amazon I looked at the alternates on cheap mini amps.
'Sperkers' ?? Cmon really?
So I give up on going real cheap and was curious is anyone has a recommendation for me now? I'm trying to keep things under 100.00 now and the only other amp that I'm aware of is the Dayton DTA-120
I'm really out of the loop of modern stuff, and am about ready to drag my old Pioneer receiver out of the attic and try and make that work.
Or maybe thats not a bad idea either?
Like I said, I'd really appreciate some coaching on a small amp coming out of a computer. My preferences are to be specific, about 40-50wpc stereo, decent quality, and the only real deal killer would be misspelled english, which is ironically usually right below a QC badge.
