Price range? In reality, you could use any, the cheapest solution would be something old, you could buy a 1/8th inch to RCA audio L/R.

Yeah, the method above will probably be the cheapest. Perhaps if you don't mind, consider buying used.

In the $100 range you could buy a "AMP100" by Audiosouce. These are pretty good basic amps. They do 50WPC or you can bridge them for 100W mono.

Some people buy stacks of these amps for home theatre set-ups.


For less money any 1980's vintage receiver you find at the local thrift store. The Goodwill store sells component audio for $35 per box.

In italy that model price is about 220 dollars! I found some good review about Schyte SDA 1100. Do you know this model? thanks

If the prices are more than double in Italy then it would mean I'd have to recommend something that sells for $40 here. There is nothing in that price range I know of except as I said, used items from a second hand store.

P.S. You should fill out your profile so people will know where you live.

Great little amplifiers, and inexpensive too.
