Summary: I have paired these speakers with the LP-2020A+ Lepai Tripath Class-T Hi-Fi mini-amp that costs about $25. I bought the speakers at a heavy discount [check out camelcamelcamel to see how much the price can fluctuate] and feel like it is an awesome sub $200 sound system for an ipod/computer or preamp w/ turntable. I don't drive the speakers very hard -- probably no more than a quarter volume.
Good sounding speakers for the money, especially when you can find them on sale.

Summary: I'm still in the process of breaking these speakers in but I'm getting some enjoyable music out of them. I have two pair of Infinity bookshelf speakers, a pair of 5" and a pair of 6", both of which I think sound better and I bought them on sale too so the price was about the same as these tower speakers.
