Hey guys after much thought and talk with my fiancee, I wont be able to the emotiva mini amp anymore.  so will the lepai amp be ok for the bs41 or the bs21?  which speaker will work better with that amp?

BOOM... Denied as the hammer falls... (Just Kidding!)

 

I know the WAF (wife approval factor) can be a biggie, if you absolutely dying for some sound I'd match the Lepai up with the BS21's...

What I'd recomend you do is wait and stash a little away till you can get the better speakers and amp, you'll be happier in the long run with the better sound and performance IMHO.

 

Good Luck on the journey and lets us know how you make out! biggrin.gif

Either will be fine with that amp. Undoubtedly, the Emotiva is better. But maybe you an use the Lepai for a year or so, then upgrade.

Lepai is cheaply built, but should sound good, and should be about the same with either speaker. I prefer the amp/usb dac combos because the sound coming out of most computers is bad, but for the price you can't beat it.

+1

 

I used to own one (bought it out of curiosity) but gave it away to a friend who need it. The Lepai with those speakers the OP is considering will definitely sound better than any desktop multimedia speakers for the same price.

Alright guys i purchased the bs21 for $45 on newegg and ordered the lepai amp. Hopefully the amp doesnt give me any issues and everything sounds sexy.

Well for $45 shipped, I bought a pair too. I'll use them with a sub upstairs in place of the much larger and pricier Infinity Betas, and will be able to do a comparison with the bigger bs41s in my office.

Infinity Betas, I do like my Beta 40s, 20s and C360.

I suspect bs41 is a lot better without a sub. With a sub and receiver with bass management may be the same (I'm hoping). Will know more when they arrive.

I'm confused. Why would it be better without a sub? The BS41 doesn't have the low end range of a set of tower speakers, so they could benefit from the extra bass extension.

I didn't say the bs41s were better than the tower version, I said that I suspect they are a lot better than the bs 21s without a sub because they are significantly larger and go significantly lower. There are certain fundamental frequencies that are common in music, and other frequencies that are less common or inaudible. Cello and string bass sound very good on the 41s. Will they sound right on the 21s?

Yeah. I didn't get that. Sorry.
