Newbie here, want to put together a desktop system - Page 2

post #16 of 18
Your JVC is probably 35 watts/channel RMS. The Indeed is probably more like 8 or 10 watts/channel RMS. The 25 watts is peak. Even that is definitely a guess in that manufacturer specs are hard to compare one on one exactly because they aren't measured the same way even when talking about RMS measurements. Still, the t-amps just aren't going to compete with full sized receivers in terms of power. They're strength (and appeal) is that they are extremely tiny. The TA2021 is only about 6" long by 3.5" wide. They are also highly efficient in energy usage.

However, sitting at a desktop 3 or 4 ft away definitely requires less power to reach the same volumes at the listening position than trying to fill a room with sound.

Yes the JVC is 35W per channel.

 

I was not aware that the TA2021 puts out 8-10W per channel. It's not really a bad thing, because as you say I'm going to be sitting right in front of the speakers. And really anything would be an 1000x better than the tiny ass speakers that are currently on my desk.

My speakers are more sensitive than the Pioneers. But I was able to measure (with an SPL meter) over 100db of output from 3m away with the TA2021. So I would suspect that the Pioneers could put out 90db or so with some headroom left over because their sensitivity has been measured to be 86db/2.83V/m. That's not deafening loud, but definitely a good listening volume.
