Topping TP41 TA2021 T-Amp + Headphone Amplifier Mini Amp 25WPC
Topping TP41 TA2021 T-Amp + Headphone Amplifier Mini Amp 25WPC is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mini-amp with limited gainThis Topping amp is an excellent mini-amp, perfect for use in a mini system, PC / MAC, or iPod / iPad application. The amp's chassis is very solid and surprisingly heavy, actually better than many so-called "high-end" amps. The switches, RCA input jacks, and binding posts are all excellent, again better than some high-end equipment, and unheard of in anything approaching the Topping amps pricing. All in all, its an outstanding value for the money. In order to keep expectations reasonable, I should note that the amp certainly isn't comparable to genuine high-end equipment in sound quality or performance (contrary to what some reviewers indicate), but such expectations are completely unreasonable given the under $200 price range of these amps. Given its excellent build quality and low price, my only complaint with the mini-amp is that is has very limited gain; even with the volume turned all the way up, no source (including a high-end DAC) could drive the amp to its full output level. A minor shortcoming is that under low-light conditions, the amp's blue power LED is overly bright, but its only a distraction under low-light conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive entry to HiFiI bought this amp along with the Dayton DTA-100 to see which would be best for a room system that I could take on the road as a headphone rig as well. Both amps are surprising in their playback ability.I A-B-C'd them against a linn majik integrated amp. I used a Topping D20 DAC taking a 96/24 signal from my Macbook and fed it to each amp in turn which played through Triangle Stellas. No subwoofer. In this set up, the differences between the three amps were surprisingly subtle. Cranking the volume did elucidate the differences, however.The Linn is a high end amp, though not the highest in all honesty, and proved to be the best at having a nice even frequency response. What it really has is that depth and shimmer that hint at a live performance in front of you. I don't know how to describe it, but it is noticeable. I have heard other amps put the linn to shame in this department, but it still has this quality in spades. The Dayton DTA-100 doesn't have it. At all. And it has a little brightness to the top end as if the lower treble frequencies were subdued leaving the upper frequencies to stand out more. Plus, the bass was a little muddled. But it is the single best cheap amp I have ever heard. At $70-$100, there is none higher in this category and I have bought the fatman tube systems and sonic T-amps.The topping is better though. The bass is more controlled and that treble glare is reduced to a "characteristic" of the sound, not a problem of the sound. But the Topping is the cheapest amp I've heard that has that "live" sound. Reverb is not an effect played through this amp, it is a personality of the room the music was recorded in. That doesn't do it justice, but I don't know how to describe it. The Linn is better in this regard, but not $1400 better. This quality wasn't always present with the topping as it was with the Linn, the recording had to be of the right quality and character (chamber music, etc.) to make it stand out.The Topping cannot go as loud as the Dayton DTA-100 though. Not even close. Plus it is a larger piece. So if volume, size and weight are an issue, the DTA-100 might be a better pick even with its wall-wart power supply.I have paid $1400 and $2000 for the last two amps I've purchased, so I may not be the best person to give purchasing advice for hifi equipment. But I would say buy the Topping TP-60 and be done with it for just under $300. Though I haven't purchased it or heard it, it seems from this Topping TP-41 that the TP-60 would most likely equal or surpass the Linn in every regard. For an extra $80 over the TP-41, you get double the watts and double the transformers. You do lose the headphone amp though. Oh well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heatsink case?After 8 hours of 1/2 volume driving a pair of minims 11's - did not get hot. Sounds pretty good for what it is ( think Amp for a pair of better computer speakers )I did disassemble the unit to find the case almost touching the PC board. (1/32 of an inch )Shipping options a bit pricey.

Topping TP41 TA2021 T-Amp + Headphone Amplifier Mini Amp 25WPC

Can a subwoofer be used with this amp?

I am planning to use a Topping amp, probably this one, with a pair of Overnight Sensation speakers (once I build the latter). Is there any way to also connect a subwoofer to the amp?
Asked by: bookmatch
This Topping will do an outstanding job with the Overnight Sensations, however, I would not recommend it as a subwoofer amp. The requirements of a subwoofer are quite different from typical full-range speakers, so we generally recommend employing a dedicated subwoofer amplifier which is designed to handle the task. We carry a wide variety of plate amps and freestanding subwoofer amplifiers, as well as the Dayton Audio APA150, which is very capable and has the added benefit of a relatively small form factor. I've linked it below for your convenience.

Voltage

Hi. The TP41 seems to be using AC in directly. Can I run it on 230V?
Asked by: karsteb
No, you do not want to run it on 230 VAC. According to the product description page......14 VDC, 4A switching power supply included...So you should use the power supply that comes with this unit, which is DC, 14 volt.
