    I have a pair of these

    https://www.avforums.com/threads/canton-plus-x-2-speakers-with-official-canton-wall-mounts.1937631/

    left over from a purchase and would like to put them to use in the bedroom. Looking for an amp that's not too big or expensive that won't look out of place on a shelf in the bedroom. These would be connected to chromecast audio using either analog or spdif for streaming music from Emby Server.

    Remote for Volume control would be a bonus.
    Second analog in or bluetooth for connecting wife's phone would be a bonus
    Networkable for control using HASS would be a bonus but who am i kidding for something that's not too expensive.

    The suggestion of a T-amp is a good one. I have used one in the past and the sound quality was fine.

    Depending on your budget have a look at this Youtube clip:

    I got a few of these for testing purposes, not bad at all, especially for about $30 delivered.

    I've got a couple sitting around, if you want to borrow one, and happen to be in the city, I'm happy to loan it.

    cheers mate, will let you know :thumbup:

    i've got a bunch of bookies sitting around doing nothing, and could set them up in the kids rooms with a little T-amp

    provided they sound OK :)

    they are OK, but you'll want a ~24v and ~2.5A power supply, though.

    It's not a 60w/ch Sonamp, that's for sure, but it's also not $1000. Sounds pretty good, though, better than a lot of the crap one may find at JB.

    Jeebus, that's a lot of DC juice! Guess it's "pushing" 100w

    I'd say it's reasonable to expect about 30-40w/ch, the rest is just head room so it isn't struggling for juice.
