Bump. I am looking into a desktop amp for speakers for my pc. I use a pair of wireless "gaming" headphones when gaming (due to mic and the wireless part), and prefer to use my desk speakers for the rest. Music and video at my home office. An desk amp would be nice, and I am looking at used recievers, but the price of the Topping VX1 is 1) as cheap as something used in Norway, 2) it is small and looks nice below my screen and on my desk, and 3) if I someday get a nice pair of headphones I can connect them directly.
So how does the Topping hold up in 2016? For the price and a nice pair of used bookshelves?
