I want to drive Eltax Monitor 1 at my desk in my room.
The sensitivity of Eltax Monitor 1 is 85~87dB. Thus, 10~16W is required to drive each speaker at 97dB.

Which one is better between SMSL SA100 and LOXJIE A10?
Both use TPA3116D2 and are at about the same price.

Caveat 1. According to Z, LOXJIE A10 seems to produce a lot of hiss due to induction current while nothing is being played. The seller says amp doesn't hiss if something is played. This means I need to have my computer keep playing silence in the background in order to prevent it from hissing.

I decided that FX502S Pro is better than both as an amplifier. It delivers a lot of value for the price.

The LOXJIE A10 turned out to emit a lot of different noise from the white noise between 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock in the volume. The loudest noise comes out at 12 o'clock. It is not very negligible. The noise disappears like a lie when you raise it further from the 2 o'clock position to MAX.
I was worried about this weird behavior of LOXJIE A10 and returned the item.
If you look at review articles overseas such as US Amazon, some similar reports have been reported.
