That's a very good deal. Plenty of amp for a stereo setup, in a fairly compact size. It could also power a passive sub.

An alternative to consider - a little more money, but much more compact, and more energy efficient. Some would argue slightly better sounding.

It's not bridgeable to a mono mode, and it has less power. (It's rated at 50W, but it won't actually deliver that with the power supply it ships with.) But some may prefer it, especially for a desktop setup where you don't need massive watts.

Good recommended alternative, I agree. I like the fact that the one I posted has an auto-on feature for the pre out on my a/v receiver. I don't see that listed on the Dayton.

I can't believe this is only $64. The AMP One, 80w, used to cost $150 on sale. I used to snap up the refurb Amp ONE for ~$90. This is a steal. Unlike an AVR or other IC base electronics, a power amp does not get old. 2 of these can easily push a baby maggie. If I don't have too many amps, I'll grab a whole bunch. Too bad AVR with pre-outs are so expensive nowadays, $300 on sale still might not get you pre-outs, ridiculous.

Seems like a very good deal. I ordered a pair to try out. The 150 watts bridged mode is very intriguing. Thanks op.

This is a very nice little amp. No frills. I use one in my office. I have it connected to my computer's sound card via a stereo 1/8" to dual rca cable and am driving some pretty nice speakers (B&W P6) to more than adequate levels. (I also found that it drove some 4 ohm speakers with no difficulty.) I used to have an Audiosource Amp One (in bridged mode) driving a passive sub and it had power to spare. I suspect this would turn in a respectable performance in that capacity too. For $65, you can't go wrong with this.

Does your receiver have pre outs? If so, yes.

Any audiophile here that can answer a question for me. I'm a noob and am at work so am limited to the speed I can google. Coupling this with a 5.1 receiver to power my front left and front right speakers, will it do any harm/ will it help?

Thanks OP. This will go perfect with the pre-out zone 2 on my Pioneer receiver. I was recently considering getting one of those $20 class T Lepai amps along with a decent power supply, but this will immediately give me the headroom I want for a pair of decent bookshelf speakers for the basement.

Would this be able to be used with a pair of active monitors? How would that setup look?

If they are active monitors, then by definition, they have their own amplifiers built into the back of the speakers. Then no, this won't help a bit. I'm guessing you are hooking pre-amp outputs straight to those active monitors?

Like bogoman asked, does your receiver have PRE-outs? If it doesn't you can't use this with your receiver. Also, what ohm are your speakers rated? As long as they are not power hungry speakers and your receiver has pre outs, 2 of these each in bridged mode will provide more power than your receiver (I guess since I don't know which receiver you have). To give you an example, my fronts are rated 8ohms 89 sensitivity. Pretty easy to drive. But I still use amps to power the speakers and let the receiver do everything else. Hope that helps.

Most important question is whether your receiver has pre-amp output. What model is your receiver? The pre outs are usually found in higher end receivers, which is ironic because it's the lower end models that would derive more benefit since they come with worse power supplies. That's capitalism at work for you.
