Hey all you lovely audiophiles. A couple years back I was prepping for a poor man audio startup and purchased the Lepai LP-2020A+ .... then a year ago I was trying to find some good sounding shelf speakers to use while I built my house and worked inside ... something I could later use for TV or in the office on a computer so I purchased a set of the Micca MB42X...I snagged my 2020 and hooked up my sansa clip to it. It sounded very nice (to me) in terms of clarity... there was definitely a lack of bass with no sub and I couldn't crank my 2020 very high up because it comes with a cheap power supply. I read about a little hack job that involves using a monitor 5A power supply to drive the 2020 amp to get more 'good' out of it, so I am about to purchase one. I realize I am just messing around with the amp at this point. I am wanting to pair my Miccas up with a nice subwoofer and a competent amplifier. Am I supposed to be looking at a 5.1 Receiver to do the driving...or is there a higher end amp similar to the Lepai 2020 that has better power, and the ability to use a subwoofer? :dontknow: Money is an object but I won't name a price. I figured since I paid $90 for the speaker, I am probably looking another couple hundred to get an amp and sub. Thanks for your suggestions.
