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.
