Something like an amplifier that generates a lot of heat really shouldn't be
put behind a couch.

Interesting, but pricey for me... However, if I was going to go with
non-powered speakers, I'd need something to drive them. Any suggestions for
a small, inexpensive amp that will take RCA in and require very little
interaction? Low interaction as in I'd stick it behind a couch or something.
