The 2amp ps only has a part number, it came with the Lepai.
Switching from the 12v 2amp to the 14v 4amp, I notice no difference in volume. What should I be hearing or not hearing, there is no hum from either unit?

I agree, receive that adapter. That store on eBay already closed. Only ordoer now sellling them. 12,43V, but works fine, can post photo of internals. Schematic not the worst, I think. Also it's not even warm when work with TA2021B. But ferrite bead on cable is probably fake )

It makes audible difference over the 2 amp PS, at least on My Ta2020.

Perhaps because I am hooked up to 15 ohm speakers that only draw a few watts from the amp and is the reason I'm not hearing any improvement?

Dunno.. could be, I'm at 96/8 dB speakers.
I think you should be fitting appropriate value Output caps though; 047uf for 4 ohmers , 022 uf for 8 ohmers, ?? uf for 16 ohm?

I received the Indeed TA2021S amp and really like it! It doesn't have quite as much gain as my unmodded Lepai (except for the 12V/5A supply) but it also doesn't go into distortion when the volume knob gets past the halfway point Perhaps a fully modded Lepai sounds like the Indeed... All I know is the Indeed amp sounds wonderful and surpasses the Lepai even at lower volumes. I sense greater detail and naturalness; could it be that the unmodded Lepai has a small and non-obvious amount of distortion which 'smears' the music a little bit? It's subtle but in my listening acoustic guitar and cymbals have more clarity with the Indeed amp.

So far I've only tested with fairly inefficient Magnepan MMG speakers (4 Ohm, 86 dB). Compared to an Onkyo 75W amp the Indeed sounds very close but not quite as good. I expect that the difference would be hard to detect with efficient speakers since the TA2021S wouldn't have to work as hard.

The output of these 2020 chips according to the specs are 15W into 4 Ohm @ .1 THD and 8W into 8 Ohm @ .1 THD. I guess at 15 Ohm the output would be around 4W? This being the case then a 2 amp ps is enough?
I have a pair of sealed 4 Ohm 3 way speakers in the basement and I hooked up the lepai and tried both the 12v 2amp ps and the 14v 4amp ps and there was a notable difference in amplifier output.
Have you tried hooking up your Tannoys yet?

Tannoy's Erm ..No.. Not yet.. and Definitely not before fully trusting and having genuine experience with these Ta chip rascals.
Using a set of 40 yr old 8" full rangers.. which actually sound a helluvalot better than most all other speakers I've heard over the years and I really should be treating these with more respect
Wasn't volume I was referring to but quality of Sound that was evident with the 'stronger' PS Although 1/2 volume is too loud and the speakers don't like it.

I Believe the Output caps have genuine/direct effect on sound and IMO should be the FIRST pieces upgraded on these Amps..( Before Inductors 'fer sure')
In the very least buy some decent MKP output caps.
Ones I bought were 10 for $2 at my local shop.

According to the ta2020 specs the absolute max supply voltage is 16 vdc.
I have just picked up a 16vdc 4amp wall wart switching ps, should I try it?
Thanks
