I know ACDOAN will want to hear about this
My office at home tends to warm up a little too much in the summer, especially if I run my HK 3390 receiver. Since I gave away my Lepai 2020+ to someone in need last fall, I decided to get the Indeed TA2021 off Ebay directly from Indeed. Here it is next to my G400 mouse for size perspective
75$ shipped. Much better build quality than the Lepai and looks nicer, too. A brick of a power supply. And if you look at the pictures on their Ebay page, better internal components.
I wish I still had the Lepai 2020+ to compare. So far this Indeed sounds great and produces plenty of volume for nearfield listening with my Ascend Acoustics CBM-170 SEs, clean sound up to volumes louder than I should listen to. Slightly colder than the HK, and I think the HK has a little better bass resolution. But overall, a great little amp
As an audio junkie as I am, I am going to try that next. Just received he Topping tp20 MK II. It look better on display but just like the Audio Engine A1, they are kind of soft and a bit mellow. My bronze ears still prefer the over all sprectum of the Lepai 2020+. That does not means the AE A1 and the Topping TO 20 mk II are bad, They are nice but from the point of diminishing return, Lepai 2020+ is still a best value.
Question, I got me a brand new brick 120 V, 25V, 4.3 A...yeah you guys can laugh and I admit my stupidity. Anyway, I replaced the el cheapo PS of the Lapai2020+ with this heavy brick. LO and behold, as soon as I hit the power switch, the Lepair 202+ POP and dead. It is only $20.00 a pop and I still have 3 more in the closet but I feel like a electronic abuser. Sorry to the Lepai 2020+ for my mistreatment. Replace the dead Lepai with another back up Lepai and back to the factory PS . SNAFU!.
I also like the Grace digital amp with bluetooth for its wide sound stage and better instruments separation but it limited itself to a 3.5 mm input aux...
Have a happy holidays, guys.
