For Quality and Price, the Arjen Helder MK2 Shines very Brightly...

There are still some questions about the Lepai at the momment. Near as I can figure there are two versions of the circuit board and neither one includes all the protection diodes.

IMHO: It can end up being one of the better 2020's if you are willing to modify it but you will end up spending much time and money. I have issues with the way diodes are placed in the power supply and over temperature protection circuit. It's been 3 weeks since I ordered replacement 2020 chips but they haven't arrived yet so I can't tell if my parts placement is correct.

Lepai is cheap and works best once modded. Arjen's Mk3 TA2020 doesn't need modding and sounds great as soon as you power it up. 41Hz.com AMp6 is worth considering also.

I've been looking at buying a TA2020-amp myself, and everyone here is recomending arjens DIY kits (oh really, DIY-forum recommend DIY. Shocking!). I want a case for my amp, but where do you get those or do you make them yourself?
