        Comments about Fiio A1 Digital Amplifier:

        The quality of this amp is beyond the other cheapo t-amps and will add a look of class to any desktop. The sound this amp puts out is very clean and is reminiscent of my larger HI-FI system. I've connected a pair of bookshelf speakers made by the The Speaker Company and they sound just as good as they do when I connect them to my larger system. This amp does not heat up and uses a small external power brick. It comes with a RCA to mini audio cable. The 14w per channel is more than enough for desktop use. Connect a quality pair of bookshelf speakers and no need to bother with a sub.

          Comments about Fiio A1 Digital Amplifier:

          I'm using the A-1 Digital Amplifier by Fiio as my computer audio system. I paired the A-1 with a set of Polk Audio T-15s and it drives these speakers plenty! I play Flac and Ogg files and even use a global eq running on my PC and experience no clipping or humming between tracks at all. The A-1 does not produce heat although it does use a small external power brick. This amp only puts out 14 watts per channel but the quality of this unit and the sound it produces is reminiscent of my larger TEAC stereo receiver.

          Comments about Fiio A1 Digital Amplifier:

          Drives my Paradigm Atoms plenty loud. Bass is nice and tight. Midrange has good punch. Upper frequencies can be harsh at times, depending on the recording. Overall sound is pretty satisfying. My only complaint is that the unit is so small that it really doesn't hide cables in back. Also kind of wish that the binding posts were towards the bottom rear so that my speaker cable and banana plugs weren't so noticeable.

          Comments about Fiio A1 Digital Amplifier:

          I have this attached to my iMac so that I can use non-powered speakers in my studio. Works perfectly! The sound is a little bland...BUT that's because of my Bose speakers NOT the amp. We tried out some heavier speakers that sound perfect on our home system to compare. The better speakers sounded terrific with the FiiO A1. The only thing I wish is that it had terminals for more than 2 speakers. Now I'm sound hungry & want MORE. I also got an RCA/iPod cord so that I can easily play from a visiting friend's iPod straight to the speakers. Very pleased & get to brag about it to my pals!
