Someone pointed these out a long long time ago, but I've kept it book marked


no idea about quality or volume, but depending on the application, it is
likely to be more than adequate.

This works as expected for me. Maybe when you get in front of your
player you can try it and give some more detailed examples.

Otherwise, an inexpensive receiver makes a good amplifier and is often
cheaper than trying to buy a standalone amp.
