Looking for an amp

Now my hifi amplifier is starting to fall apart, after 10 years of use (and it was certainly already 10-15 years old back then). I’m looking for a replacement now. It:

  • Should deliver a warm and natural sound.
  • Should not be too expensive. Although it is not required to be at the low end of the scale either.
  • Is not required to be the newest high tech product. Actually I only need something rather minimal, like input for turntable and DVD/CD player, a volume knob and speaker out ;-). No fance dolby surround and all that stuff. A good sound is much more important to me. I can go very well with something used from ebay.
  • Doesn’t have to be ultra loud or so. Well ok, it should be loud enough for some serious rock and roll record, but still, that is only for the living room and most amps are loud enough for that anyway 😉

So if anybody has a good suggestion, please comment below.

    You may want to look at the T Amp by Sonic Impact. Google for “t amp amplifier” for more details. The first link[1] is a review and the third[2] is the ThinkGeek page to purchase it. It comes in two versions. The first is only $29.99 and runs on 8 AA batteries (for 8-15 hours) or a 12V DC power supply that you have to purchase seperately; the second is $139.99 and is powered by an AC wall plug. I’ve heard it and it sounds fine.

    I second the Super T-Amp. It’s inexpensive, small, minimal, and sounds nice. It has the interface exactly right for an amp: power button, and a huge volume knob.
