~$30 for amp with power supply! That is pretty impressive. Now if there was a case for an additional $10 to finish it, that would really be something; I am that guy that would be worried about dropping a paperclip or a couple of loose staples and it landing wrong!!!
Wishes come true. I guess they liked my idea. :)

Waitaminit... I read some of the previous page too and those little amps are new to me. They're D class amps and powerful/sound good? Or are they more sub-centric? I'm definitely curious.

Fo reals man the amp knob at half way is loud as heck. Once you have the music bee or equivalent on your PC or DAP setup. Amazing class D sq. My mouth was wide open. REALLY. Once i hooked up the Dayton 1200 even better. The amp rocks. Better than those junky 20$ amps on amazon and i tried a few. Took less than 2 weeks to get it from China. YEP get one. Especially that they a NICE case NOW. I did not mention that it does not have a dedicated on/off switch. Not a problem if you have an AC strip with a off switch.

Whoa a year later. Will take pics of stuff I bought like 5-7 months ago. My last purchases. I'm on a big budget due to some bad circumstances in the last couple of months. To get me off all the ruts I'm feeling I'll get some pics tomorrow* on my all time favorite forum. Stay tuned and positive. ✌

That's all folks. I have not set the other speakers because I might be moving soon. The Bostons for being a 3 inch speaker is very musical and the tweeter sounds amazingly clear and not fatiguing. The Dayton center does a decent job with dialog. Its not the best I've heard, but for being less than 30 does a good job. The Samsung TV for being over 10 years old has very good blacks and colors. Maybe one day 4K LG/Samsung/TCL. The Jamo SUB200 does a fantastic job on the low end. I'm still shocked how good it is. Overall I'm quite content with this 3.1 setup. All for less than $250 believe it or not. Of course not including the other speakers(Canton/Technics) that I I have not hooked up. I want to say a BIG THANKS to zieglj01 for taking the time to help me out with my decisions. He's an amazing patient dude. Feel free to ask any questions. Thanks for indulging me and have a great day or evening. ✌

Here we go. I got a new table at the thrift store for only $15!!! Easily worth over $150ish. I think everything matches better. Now on to these prized nuggets DCM TP160S. The tweeters on these are great. I think the bass ain't too bad like people are saying. I'd listen without a subwoofer. Dialog is crystal clear. Tested with Morgan freeman. Fantastic. Took a bit to get the sweet spot with music, but I finally got it. Bit of Rock, Jazz and Pop. All sounded sparkly clear without fatigue/sibilance and bass was good. They mix in great with my Jamo sub. I will try to get the center next for looks and audio synchronization. I crossed these at 100 just like you suggested Kew Thanks. These are certainly impressive as F*** for the price. Best Xmas present in years!!!
Special mention of Zieglj01 who gave fame to these wonderful speakers. A genuine Thank You "Sir".
Pics taken with my camera phone so don't judge me. :p

Haha you are right, KEW I'm da kinda guy who like things to match. I think the table is elegant with a bit of retro look. By the way got some jams pumping on the DCM speakers right now and feels so daggone good. Z is to blame.

I like that table too. The tapered "dog" legs, chamfered top and drawer faces ... even the color!

However ... seeing the rec'r on the floor instantly made me think about how maybe 10 bucks worth of black spray paint put to the speaker stands would look with the black TV stand. Even though the new table is nicer, the black TV stand works better and has the benefit of being black which is a good thing on the viewing wall.

Is that thing on the rec'r with the blue lights a fan?
Is there a light switch and color options?

It is a fan, but only blue lights. I think I paid six bucks on Amazon. I love it, it keeps the Integra nice and cool. Actually the table color matches. The DCM are actually a bit lighter than in pic. I need the center to make it complete. Hopefully at the end of the month I hope they don't sell out.
