B&W DM 220 - Asus D2X

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine had a couple of these speakers laying in his storage room, and out of interest I want to connect them to my sound card.

I've read that I need an amplifier rated below 100w, and I don't want to spend too much on it to get some sound in these things.

Just wondering what's a good amplifier for connecting to sound cards, or does it really matter which one I get?
I've yet to find anything below $350, even though I assume this is what I have to pay for a decent amp.

Anyway, I thought I'd come by and ask if anyone has done something similar to help me figure out what to get.

A used amp fron the 1980's would work great.
There are many available.

Get a reciever and have FM too.
