Speaker Amplifier Assistance

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey there Hi-Fiers

I am new here and also new to audio I wanted to try something I have two 8 ohms speakers from an old mini component set lying around the place and I wanted to use them to replace my generic computer speakers I have seen some Pyle and Lepai speaker amplifiers that allows you to connect speakers to it and then allows you to feed a source like an MP3 player such as your iPod to the speakers but I have been seeing very bad reviews about Pyle and Lepai (not sure if indivudals are not being objective or fair about these amplifiers and or if they are okay for what I want to try but not recommended for any high end audio setup) thus why I am here.

 

I would like to know what is a good or decent amp to power two 8 ohms speakers it states that they are rated at 20W but they can max out at 40W (not sure exactly what determines whether it peaks at 40W or stays at 20W) and then would allow me to connect the amp to my sound card to feed audio into the speakers.

 

Thanks in advance.

Just an FYI, but this is a headphone site, as in Head-Fi, not Hi-Fi.

 

You might try a T-amp or its derivatives ...

Well there is an Computer Audio section and a High End Audio section section and I have seen several speakers discussion here also, I just posted here because it stated if one wanted help this was where to post.

Yes, I suppose, but your question is completely focused on speakers and a proper amp.  I only pointed it out because it's not the best way to get help with speakers by posting on Head-Fi.

 

So, have you already tried a T-amp and decided that it wasn't worth your trouble - because you didn't mention it at all. ;)

I am kinda confused because I have seen discussions here primary about speakers with not even the slightest hint or association with headphones many different threads, thanks for responding though (and which site would you recommend?) I don't even know what a T-Amp is to have tried it I have an interest in audio but really don't know the technicalities some guys recommended some headphones to me after I told them what I was seeking a few months ago and that is my first piece of high quality audio gear.  

 

So I am open to trying those I actually googled them and they seem to be similar to the Pyle, Dayton and Lepai amplifiers that I have been coming across but as I mentioned above they getting bad reviews so not sure if they are fine for what I want to use them for but not high end set ups and the reviewers not being objective or if they really are just bad.
