First of all I admit I'm new to the hifi world. Still learning and asking stupid questions around .
The background is that I have a small creative D100 active speaker. To me it plays pretty loud and room filling (5m*5m). But after checking the specs, I'm surprised to see its output power is only 2*2W. Then I was just thinking even if I bought a super 100W pc amplifier plus two DM685 speakers, all I need would still be say 5-10W power from these guys to fill my room and meet my own level of loudness requirements . Then, this small desktop amp, NuForce ICON-2, came into my radar, with 18W pc output.
On the speaker side, I was looking for those with 5" or 6.5" woofers and then found BW's DM685, DM686, and Scandyna's Minipod quite good and fit my needs.
My question is can this little desktop amp drive these speakers? Does this combination make sense? Appreciate if you guys can share your thoughts.
