Hi all,

I just ordered a pair of Buchardt S300 MK II (https://www.buchardtaudio.com/shop/s300-white) and now I'm hoping to be able to get some advice from you guys on what amplifier to buy.

Basically my knowledge is very limited, but what I've figured out is I want;

1. Something than can deliver the recommended ~50w at 8ohm
2. Is Compact, the smaller and simpler the better
3. Preferably under ~500 GBP
4. It will be used in my living room (6x7m) but I don't need lot's of volume


I have searched but struggle find something small that produces that level of power. Feel free to laugh at me but smthn like this, is it complete rubbish? I live the size and look however the low price (!) makes me wonder if it's any good? https://www.audiophonics.fr/en/integrated-amplifier/audiophonics-tda-s50-amplifier-tda7498e-class-d-2x-70w-4-ohm-p-8681.html

Thanks!

Are you OK with the single analogue input option of the amp you linked? I really like the Sprout 100, which is very small and simple, but with various connection options and it gets great reviews, though it seems to be much cheaper in the US than in Europe.

Try the Rega Io, you don't need the full 50 watts per channel as you're unlikely to use them all.
It might be good if you mentioned where in the world you are because,as the Sprout 100 recommendation shows, prices vary greatly and it's £800 in the UK.
I am assuming you are in the UK because you quote GBP
