Default Looking for a finished amp to drive two Fostes FE127E 8ohm

Hi All.

I'm looking for a finished amp to drive my Fostex FE127E speakers (8ohm)
I used to have a trendsaudio TA-10 and the level of detail was great, but was very limited in the low end, sometimes it was too bright, and overall limited power.

It would be ideal if it has an extra channel (2.1 config) so I can add a sub later if I feel like it, but I'm not holding my breath for that one.

I've been looking at the TK2050 amps, but they seem to push less power in 8ohms than at 4.

Could you give me some recommendations, please?

How much power were you looking for?

By "finished amp" do you mean a commercial product?

Or did you want someone to build one for you?

That is usually the case with any amp.

Thanks Dave, then it becomes more important to have decent power.
Dave, since you have lots of experience with Fostex Drivers, how much power do you think it's required to drive my speakers, and get decent bass? (Regardless of the enclosure, which right now is a recommended by fostex, but planning to upgrade to a mini fonken)

Quality of bass or extention?

We found that higher output impedance amps tended to work well (ie thee are most often tube amps)

I'd say a combination of both, IMO the speaker, is quite bright, and could cover the bass if there's not much of it. (correct me if wrong)

I use the topping tp21 and tp22 to drive my fostex fe126en I like the way they sound. I think they get decent bass considering speaker is only 120mm.
