What will be your BT source? For it to sound any good it has to be from something decent otherwise you will just get a very ropey low bit rate compressed MP3 sound.

Saw this on my travels https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Remote-Digit ... 3902280536

Some of the Chinese stuff is getting scarily good! Look for 'lossless' or 'aptX as compressed bluetooth audio is not a pretty sound.

I know its not what you were quite looking for but the new class D amps are pretty amazing. I was running a £23 50w x2 amp at Mayhem off a 12v car battery at full volume for about 20 hours and it didnt even get warm. The audio quality is really good and given the right power supply

DAC, Bluetooth and amplification:

Thanks for the advice LGF...that’s an alternate I hadn’t really thought about tbh.

...and of course an amp made by nobsound would keep my juvenile children amused for ages. :lol:

What do you call these little drive belts, can you get replacements and is it worth it?

Try here Rob.... https://cpc.farnell.com/c/audio-visual/av-spares

I don't know what you have there but I'm sure they can be replaced quite easily

Hi, looking for some amplifier recommendations for some speakers I just picked up. Tannoy 3LZ Gold monitors, which were £20!

These:

I don't think they need much power, currently running them at 8watt pch! Through a small computer sub. Seem to work ok
