Im looking at options for a small amp that I can run off my desktop PC, something like a Wadia 151. Any ideas on what to look at that are cheaper alternatives to the Wadia?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks I'll check it out. I've been looking at the little Tube amps with USB input as well.
They look interesting, any opinions on those like the Fatman?

If I were you I would look into an old school Soundstream D100 or D60. They are super small and super clean.

I use an Audio Art 4 channel with built in crossover and a small 25amp power supply. I use a CAI passive pre for volume control and a Music Streamer II usb DAC. Its a bit unorthodox but sounds fantastic! I built some mini monitors using 3" Tang Band bamboo wide rangers and a sub with a 6.5" Tang Band neo sub. I screwed the amp to the sub enclosure and set the power supply on top with the DAC. The passive pre, with its ALPS volume knob sits, on top of my desk. Wallah!!

Me too! Curious to hear your thoughts. Seen it at Crutchfield. Looks like nice equipment. Little Pricey!
