So, I dug out an old pair of Axiom M3V2 speakers and grabbed a tube amp from monoprice for $150. I didn't expect much.

It's so sweet it's a joke. I've listened to Smetena and Mussorgsky so far (CDs). The sound quality is really good!

This Monoprice unit looks like a lot like a nobsound MS10d, has a single input and a built-in bluetooth receiver.

A nice sounding tube amp for $150. That is audio value friends.

Speaking of inexpensive Monoprice amplifiers, they have one of their "No Logo" branded 2 channel amps for just over $200 US. 150w x 2 (8 ohms) and 235w x 2 (4 ohms)...not much in the way of reviews on it, but if it's anywhere near it's listed specs (and reliable) it's a bargain.

It's tempting. Exchange rate sucks right now though.

This amp, for $99, is a steal at Parts Express:

https://wholesale.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-apa100-class-ab-stereo-amplifier-60-wpc--300-590

Dual RCA Inputs, volume control, can take two pairs of speakers ... AND ... two channel line out.

A pair of M2's/M3's ... an EP125 (both from the Outlet ... this amp and a decent CD player. Good sound.

Niles also makes some reasonably priced amps too.
