Default Amazing Mini Amp $27 Shipped

I was looking for a small amp to use with my new Amazon Echo Dot and found this little beauty. It even has Bluetooth! It's ridiculously tiny and rated at 30 watts x 2. I've attached some pictures and the link where I bought it.

How does it sound? I bought a t-amp a while ago, (not sure if its the same as yours), but it sounded terrible. So bad that even after they refunded me the money, I couldn't find use for it for anything else.

If it works well, then I might be picking one up myself, esp since its got bluetooth

I'd also be interested to know your thoughts. It's got 5/5 on Amazon.

Default Re: Amazing Mini Amp $27 Shipped

I think it sounds pretty great. I have not notice anything egregious or annoying with the sound. Is it as good as my NAD amp? Hell no but it's the size of a deck of cards and it cost $27! I think the fact that I laugh every time I look at it (and it's got Bluetooth that works well) makes it worth every penny. I believe the value here would be for anyone looking for a Bluetooth speaker set up. You could match this with a cheap set of speakers (like in the link below) and for $67 you've got a nice Bluetooth setup that's probably better than most of the crap out there.

Hey if you don't like it Amazon will certainly take it back.

That amp uses the Texas Instruments TPA3110 chip which is pretty well regarded.

Does it need that big of a power block or do you think that it could be downsized

You could use a smaller one as long as the output is the same. It looks like they just throw in a generic laptop power supply

Yeah that's what I was thinking, cause I have always wanted to build a portable speaker with 2 3" tang band full range speakers. This might be what I'm looking for

Default Re: Amazing Mini Amp $27 Shipped

First thing I thought when I saw it was laptop supply. I'm guessing it's whatever they could get for cheap. For me it'll be in the wire shelf under my desk but I may still swap it for something smaller. I'll probably try running it off a 3s lipo as well see how it does battery powered.

Default Re: Amazing Mini Amp $27 Shipped

Seems great for the price, but please understand what you are getting.

Take a look at the spec sheet of the TPA3110D2 here:
TPA3110D2 | Analog Input Amplifiers | Mid-Power Audio Amplifiers (5-50W) | Description & parametrics

Utilizing 2 of these chips can absolutely get you 30x2.....at 10% THD and 16v
(each chip in bridged formation, one for left, one for right)

Another manufacturer's amp utilizing a single TPA3110 produces 5W @8 ohm at 10% THD or 8W @ 4 ohm 10% THD

At .1% THD power is 3W @8 ohm 6W @ 4 ohm.
https://www.parts-express.com/pedocs...s-brochure.pdf

So this unit in question at most I'd say at reasonable THD levels maybe 10-12 watts?

Now is this rms or peak numbers? No idea.
(testing appears to be at 1k also, btw)

Not putting down the product. In fact, I might buy one. I'd LOVE to try it out for a pair of small PC speakers. (currently using the built in ones on my monitor, which honestly are not that bad - but I could use an upgrade)
I want a blue one!

Just wanted to look into the details of the unit, and this is what I found. So just so everyone knows what they may be getting.

Hell for 27 bucks seems great!

For me it's near field listening with small book shelves. My 2020 does the job but I want something with BT. The smaller foot print and much better aesthetics are bonus points. Once it arrive I'll a/b compare it with the 2020 and see how it does

I'm curious to hear everyones thoughts on this tiny guy. I needed something to drive my 2 small speakers for my Amazon Echo Dot and compared to the speakers in the dot it's obviously a massive improvement for very little cash. Perfect solution for my needs. Let me know how this works for you.

Actually that review is of a prior version as it has an older Bluetooth version 3.0 and no power supply. The one on the Amazon link has Bluetooth 4.0 and a nice power adapter included. Just sayin

Mine arrived today. I had just enough time to hook it up before leaving for work. Does the business! The power pack is much smaller than expected. It's about half the size of a laptop power supply. I'll measure it when I get home.

I don't like that all the inputs are on the front but my Mac has BT so I'll use that instead of 3.5.

okay so im sitting here using it in BT mode. its fantastic definitely has more jam then the 2020A, not saying much I know but seeing as they are the same price this little guy is the clear winner.

The power block is 4.5x1x2.25 give or take, amp is 2x3.
