I've been pondering this for a while, but I have finally decided to invest in a good speaker set-up. I will be living in a suite-style dorm next year and have been looking to build a relatively cheap, but high fidelity system.
I am looking to pair the Pioneer SP-BS22 LR bookshelf speakers and a Polk PSW10 Subwoofer with a Lepai 2020A+ amplifier. One of my concerns is whether this amp will have a sufficient amount of power to drive both or should I get a different one, such as the Topping TP21 or TP30. Also, I have been wondering whether I should get a DAC to help the entire thing sound better.
I know StratocasterMan here on Head-Fi has a similar set-up. He has the Dayton B652 and Polk PSW10 hooked up to a Lepai 2020A+, but also has a Fiio E17 DAC added in. Would this be necessary or do you think I can avoid this? I'd like to avoid spending any unnecessary funds.
I will be driving this out of my Lenovo Y410p or my Samsung Galaxy S4. My friends will also be hooking up their phones, most of which will be iPhones.
Let me know if you guys need anything else. Thanks.
