Thanks for the suggestion- I saw the TK when I was looking around, but since the amp will just be used for my computer speakers (listening to music in a nearfield capacity), the TA2020 is more than sufficient for me. The TK seems like a great amp though.

It is a GREAT amp. I've owned a bunch of amps over several decades (tubes and s/s), and the Sure Tripath is the best, especially with a little bit of tweaking and given the proper amount of juice (27-32VDC). Dynamics, slam, detail, unfatiguing listenability, sheer musicality, it's got it all. It's a jewel and the best bargain in audio, methinks.

Hi
Just wonder which one you end up getting.
Because I am looking for the same stuff as well, and can not make decision which one is more suitable/valuable either.

Cheers

I think the price in Ebay is higher.As I purchase the Lepai LP-2020 in $14.86 and purchase the adapter with $3.6.The total is $18.46.And I really recommend the Lepai LP-2020 as it is in high performance and stable.The most important it the cheap price which is best for the new player.Also I have used the topping 2020,I purchase in $64,it has the as a larger output, better dynamic range and bass response than other Topping's models.

Suggest avoiding the Lepai.
It needs ALL it's parts upgraded and the tone controls are worthless/detracting to the sound
This one is much better:
YJ TA2020 20W+20W Class D amplifier board | eBay

I bought it as a replacement while waiting for my Lepai to arrive. MUCH better built /quality very few parts actually need replacement 'as is'.
Adjustment for DC offset alone makes it a contender IMO.
No case included though :-)
Power supply :

I'd probably agree with the 2nd part about the tone controls, but "ALL" I would consider to be a gross exaggeration.
