I use 2 similar, both Topping tp21 and vx3, for 2 computer systems. TP21 has 2 RCA inputs and the VX3 1 RCA analogue input and Bluetooth both have headphone sockets ( a must for me)
Both sound great and no issues. Fantastic value imho

Cheap, mini, Chinese... pick any two...
I guess you can have it all, with heavy emphasis on cheap.
When I saw the title I thought of:
http://www.musicalparadise.ca/store/ind ... duct_id=54
Which I purchased and think offers great bang for the buck, but not cheap.
Or:
http://www.templeaudio.net/bantamgold.html
Which I also purchased (two actually to bi-amp), and again great value and performance. (not Chinese mind you, made in the UK, definitely mini)

The item in the link by the OP even comes with the infamous NE5532 opamp from the '80s, in addition to 'SPERKERS' output.

I feel like they were calling out to me. Dynamic more violent but does not explode.

I use a " TOPPING 32EX " for headphones and totem dreamcatchers via USB on my computer.

I'm really happy with the value it provides me $150 on amazon I think.....

Less power supply like $30 to your door off evil bay.

I have a couple of SMSL AD18 amps that are tiny, have 3.5 analog/usb/optical/coax/Bluetooth- 80w@4ohms, remote etc...they were about $130usd each from Massdrop / $190ish from Amazon.
There’s a similarly spcc’d SMSL Q5, less power, on Massdrop for $85usd now, looks like $186cdn on Amazon. I might have saved $15 or so via Massdrop but I think I paid that and half again to bail them out of the clutches of CPC.
I use one for my 2 channel needs from the tv via coax and was using the other in my br via USB and Bluetooth and they work pretty well for what they are.

I have the exact one in the link. I use it for my workshop , with a pair of Minimus 7's and a CD player. It sounds fine. No problems driving the 7's. I run it at 22 volts.

I have a blue one and a silver one . I use this as the power supply @ 24 volts . https://www.astrondistributors.com/astron-vls-10m-4134.html Sounds better than it should considering the price .

I use a universal laptop supply.
Think 12 16 19 and 24v and a bag of ends.
Mine with the max voltage sounds edgy.
Mind u the supply was only $40

I did purchase the SMSL AD18 as a Christmas gift for a family member. It is seeing daily use and is a lot of fun to play with, even has Bluetooth to play off music from your cell phone as well as selectable sound profiles and different colours display options. A lot packed in a tiny box...Got it through Amazon.ca Prime, so fast shipping and risk-free.

I have a Lepy tripath and an older Lepai with a remote. I have only used them with efficient speakers. The Tripath sounds much better than it should. It’s not going to replace HiFi gear-not quite as revealing, a little harsh- but it sounds good enough to really enjoy music. The older Lepai D class is OK. It’s not my preference for music, but it makes the TV more audible. It’s not terrible, but nothing to write home about.
