Need a cheap amp for a desktop pc 8000 budget.
« on: Jun 28, 2018 at 06:51 PM »
Hi guys. Can you suggest a good cheap amp with dac? It's for a desktop pc so it needs to be small cause its going to be on my desk, does not need to play loud cause cpeaker will be near my face and most important not expensive.  I'm going to drive 2 small polk speakers. My budget is less than 8000 around that. cheaper the better.
thanks.

Im using FX Audio D802C model. With built in DAC!  Plenty of input option like bluetooth,  coax, aux and optical.

May tone controls din plus EQ presets for extra boost.  Paired with onkyo bookshelf.

I think it would be cheaper to get a separate DAC and amp. Easier to maintain and upgrade pa.
