I heard good things about those speakers but seems like people prefer Lepai/Dayton setup. Thanks for sharing though.

If you want better SQ and are willing to spend $150, combine the Lepai with the Pioneer SP-BS22-LR Andrew Jones speakers
As far as the difference between the two models, I think it's just the power supply that plugs into the wall, but I might be wrong.
For amp, I've seen people debating over Dayton vs. Lepai amp. For extra $20, is Dayton amp worth it (DTA-1)? Also, out of curiosity, are Pioneer speakers worth the money and make noticeable difference in terms of SQ? At the moment, I am leaning towards the Lepai/Dayton setup (I will get the amp sold by Amazon). Thanks.
