5.0 out of 5 stars I need to buy more of these, August 17, 2013
This review is from: Lepai LP-2020A+ Tripath Class-T Mini Audio Amplifier with Power Supply Black (Electronics)
Admittedly, I was skeptical of the glowing reviews of the previous version of this product. I ordered the old version on here, but received the 2013 model. It's awesome. I hope Lepai does not raise the price on these because now I need one for a workout room, garage, and one for my office. Presently, this is powering two of the Andrew Jones Pioneer Bookshelf speakers as monitors for a computer and I am blown away. This hits 85-90 decibels cleanly in a 12x12 room without distortion.

Drawbacks - bright blue light on volume, no remote, slight hum when the amp gets going for the first 30 sec or so. --- really, these are non-issues for me but some people may be annoyed.

For $20-25, you are foolish if you are buying a low-end AVR for music or computer audio instead of this amp. Spend your money on better speakers instead. (The AVR only makes sense if you need the inputs)

Do you have pioneer bs 22 by andrew jones? How loud can they get?

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 19, 2013 4:05:44 PM PDT
Yes, but that is a relative question depending on what is powering them. With the lepai, they were more than loud enough in a small room. I also have another pair as rears in a full system with a pioneer elite avr. The good thing is that they will make my ears hurt before they sound sloppy or hear distortion.

Do you mind if I ask how you connected your speakers to the Lepai amp? What kind of wires did you use/recommend? I'm a complete noob at this.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 19, 2013 5:47:33 PM PDT
I always use 14 or 16 gauge wire. Longer runs 30+ feet, I will use the 14. You can likely buy on amazon too. I think monoprice lists products on here now

By that do you mean you clip the outside covering of the wire off and stick it through the hole in the knobs in the back of the amp, and do the same with the speakers? I wonder if I can find easier ways to do this.
