Best amp that can fit into a mint tin?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I found some really neat tins roughly the size of the traditional Altoids tin at an arts and crafts shop today.  Slightly taller, and maybe a tiny smaller footprint.  3.63" x 3.38" x 1.31"  Anyways, I was wondering what opinions were on the best amp that I could squeeze into one.  Obviously the Cmoy is a candidate, but I was wondering if there was a better one.  And by better, I mean power something like a T50rp nicely with low distortion and good dynamics.  It doesn't have to be battery based, as I am primarily a desktop listener, but bonus if it can.  I would love the parts to come in under $40-50.

 

Thanks!

I will look into it!

 

Any others?  Most of my googling results in a million different cmoy links.  Thought about the Skeleton DAC since it can also drive headphones, but it looks like it wouldn't be able drive bigger headphones and the headphone page is actually down.
