    Hi everyone !

    I am buying a second hand stereo amplifier. I plan to use it with my Hitachi 2x30W speakers, connected to my SB audigy 2 value sound card on my computer. I will use it mainly for music and for media on youtube and such. My limit is 100€ and i found several options for that money, i would be glad if you could give me some feedback.

    The Hitachi speakers i have:

    The second hand amps i found online and their prices:

    - Pioneer A-109 60€
    - Technics SU-V300 65€
    - SANSUI A-5 65€
    - Yamaha A-500 69€
    - SONY TA-F400 70€
    - SONY TA-FE320R 70€
    - PIONEER A-307R MOS FET 70€
    - Philips FA 660 70€
    - DENON PMA 880R 80€
    - YAMAHA AX 380 90€
    - PHILIPS FA 950 100€
    - Kenwood KA-2060R 100€
    - Rotel RA-550 100€
    - TECHNICS SU-VX700 110€
    - SONY TA-F 561R 115€
    - ROTEL RA-931 120€

    Some of them are over 100€, i would be prepared to pay that if it would really matter ... meaning there should be a lot of difference compared to the one costing for instance 80€. There would also be an option to buy from e-bay since offer in my country is quite small. I would be prepared to pay up to 130 dollars for amplifier + sending costs. I dont know anything about amplifiers soo i hope that you can give me some hints as to what should i buy.

    NAD BEE AMP range for example NAD 316 BEE which has really small footprint and punches above its weight!!! I am really happy with it for a bedroom set up..or Rotel RA-01

    both can be had around 100 Euro mark in the UK if you keep watch on classifieds here..
