depends on the speakers! depends on other factors associated with the amp! depends on the volume you want!

My bedroom system for several years was a 30w Yamaha integrated amp. Used it with several speakers and no problem at all.

If you're after serious loudness from the audio it's much easier IME to get it with efficient speakers not big amps.

yeah, if you want serious volume, there are better ways than this amp. The amp will be good, but there is distinction between 'good' and loud.

The volume will be loud enough, no worries there. A low-budget amp/receiver is still 10x better than any (affordable) pc-speaker setup. Good luck with it! ;)

I would have a listen at a nearby shop. If you don't have enough experience in judging, try to listen to some more expensive stuff to see what cheap ones come closest.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong:

If your speakers are an efficient design, an amplifier with just 1 watt will provide anything up to 90 odd dB! Which in a small room is very loud.

Obviously this all depneds on the music, lots of bass requires more from the amp and so on.

I have in a very small room, a 1982 JVC M-L10/ P-L10 Laboratory series pre/ power and I cant get the VU metre needle to point at anything more than about 3 Watt out of a potential indecated 300 Watt before its too loud...

:D
