ive saw a amp that i like but is 30watts per channel enough for a bedroom or do i need more?
depends on the speakers! depends on other factors associated with the amp! depends on the volume you want!
give us more info and we can help out!
well thw room is about 4m by 4m but is a loft so it has sloping roofs. the speakers i have right now i dont know much about but they are philips ans say on them
AK 141 2 way tuned bass port
and on the back its says there are 8ohm
the amp is MARANTZ PM4400
it will be just fine, go ahead and have no worries
i hope not i dont want to spend a £130 something pound on a amp which wont keep up with the house nest door
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.
well the thing is i dont have anything to compare the loundness with but it should be better than my pc setup which is a soundblaster live 5.1 an dtt2200 5.1 shouldnt it?
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 need a low cost amp i think to help my budget is there anything about the £100 mark that is good?
ive looked a pioneer amp an like they look of them has anyone played with them and what do u think about them?
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.
Marantz I found to be flat and boring,try a older Rotel ,good power,cleaner,try a older rotel RA930,or 971.Plenty loud enough.
I have a silver Pioneer VSX-C301 for sale in the classified forum.
It could be ideal for your needs so feel free to make me an offer.
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...
