I have the following setup.

    
LP-2020A+
3M 3.5mm Female Stereo Jack to 2 Male RCA Plugs Cable
Jack Plug To 2 x RCA Phono

DISCLAIMER: Audiologists (hearing doctors) and audiophiles might cringe at this. Doing what I just did may damage:

1) Your headphones ... or ...
2) Your hearing ... or ...
3) Both of the above.

Thanks to J. Alec West

The amp is rated at 20 watts per channel and comes with an AC adapter for in-home use. On the front panel, there's an on/off switch, a "tone" on/off button, treble control, bass control, and volume control. On the back panel, there is no headphone output. But (evil grin), there are wire-by-wire speaker outputs. I took the 3.5mm female to RCA stereo male cable and snipped off the RCA parts. I stripped back both right/left cables to expose the bare wires, hooking them up appropriately to the amp's speaker output. Also on the back panel, there's an 3.5mm female stereo input for stereo outputs after using went to lead mentioned above (better)from MP3 players (and, hehe, laptops). For that, I only needed the 6-foot male-to-male 3.5mm stereo cable.
I used lead mentioned above

The laptop audio cable is plugged in. VLC opened, half-volume (computer set at half-volume). I started playing the song  and, ever so slowly, cranked up the amp's volume.

YEE - HAH !!!!!!!!!

I only dared turn it up to one-third volume ... which, for this experiment, turned out to be the borderline between "safe concert level" and "ear bleeding level." 8) But, WOW, what crisp audio and fully enhanced bass. My headphones were loving it (me, too).

Of course (snicker), this was an "experiment." Results by others may vary.

I then went to srs labs sanddbox and fiddled

WOW
I believe I'd pay £100-£300 for this it only cost £40
