    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.

    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.
