Lepai T-Amp with TA2020
 
2 Attachment(s)
While searching eBay for parts to mod my SI T-Amp, I came across a little gem. The shop where I bought an Alps volume pot was selling a few Chinese built Class T amps. An email to the owner revealed that they use TA2020. I posted the link to the eBay shop in a few current threads here to see if anyone had seen this amp before - but it was unknown.

Anyway - another member bought two of them and I bought the last one. It arrived yeaterday and has been running for almost 24hrs. The sound is very good - better than my stock SI T-amp. This one has good bass and a more controlled treble. I thought initially that it didn't have the sparkle of the SI - but with a change of CD player it now sounds great.

The case is made of aluminium, it has a separate power switch, volume and tone controls(pity) and RCA input connectors. The speaker terminals are similar to those on the SI - maybe even worse. There is a red Led to indicate when power is present and a blue LED to show peak volume - sort of an indication when it is clipping. Avoid the blue light and it sounds good.

The best thing about this amp is that it sounds good out of the box - without mods.........and it only cost US$20.

Hopefully the member who bought the other two will come along and tell you what is inside.

I have asked the supplier if he can get more of these amps. If he can, or if you see one elsewhere - I would suggest that you buy it without hesitating. Better built, better sound and better price than an SI T-Amp.....how good can it get???

I have the other 2. :D

This is about the junkiest built T-Amp I've seen. And the only one with all thru hole components. Real cheap Chinese stuff. The insides are like a bad trip back to the 70s.

But it does sound pretty good! Surprise, surprise.

The amp I've been listening to seems to have a bad power cap or 2, but you know me - I'll replace them anyway.

So for $20, a fun deal!

OK - I located eight more of these amps and am negotiating the price. Let me know if you are interested in one.

The price for these amps is GBP14 or US$26....and delivery is GBP10 or US$19 to anywhere. So - total cost per amp is GBP24 or US$45 including shipping - assuming we can arrange seven buyers as I'll be taking another one for myself.

Anyone considering a Sonic Impact should try one of these.

Send Fin an email.

In my search for stuff - I also came across these power supplies. They seem to be a good match for the 2020 based amp as they provide 13.5V @ 3A and have a universal voltage input. The price is unbelievable at about US$3.50 plus shipping.
