Recommended Posts

It's for youtube and various iplayers on my desktop computer, integrated or power -- I have a little passive pre I could use if needs must.

Its pretty neat my daughter uses one for her pc desk top set up in her room and is also able to chill out on the bed and use her phone to stream music to it via Bluetooth.

Bluetooth range isn't particularly good about 15-20 feet but works a treat as long as you don't take the phone out of the room.

You can find them for a bit less if you don't mind a few weeks wait for delivery by using aliexpress but amazon is just so much easier to deal with if you have any issues.

I'm using the version without the volume control to power a pair of actives - they seem to work very well and cheap as chips.

The Musical Fidelity V Amp is sensationally good. It has 2 x 20 watts Class T,  a Dac, and asynchronous USB, optical and analogue inputs. It's the size of two packs of cigarettes. Detail and 'air' are superb for near-field listening.  They go for £100 on Ebay!

That is just unreal for a 2 x 50 watt amp. 20 quid! I just bought a 2 x 50 after doing a little bit of homework it seemed to be about the best for the sound/money but I cant see it being night and day from the £20 model here from China. I have to say though the one I bought is superb even for £60, Im delighted with what it can do, and its TINY!
