I have an Aiyima A07 which I really like and would like to add a subwoofer into the mix. Is there a 2.1 unit with the TPA3255 in it that could provide the same power and signal to a pair of passive speakers and active subwoofer. If not, what's the best way to incorporate a subwoofer? My audio source and set up is as follows: Macbook pro > Aiyima Tube A3 Pro > Aiyima A07 > Bookshelf Speakers

minidsp 2×4 HD is the most popular choice to properly integrate a sub :)

Not sure about your budget, but i hear the MiniDSP Flex is back in stock in a few days. This would solve the problem like the 2x4HD, but offers slightly better signal quality and a few more features. Remember to get a UMIK1 as well, otherwise the MiniDSP can't be used to it's full potential.

You can also just get an active subwoofer and go to the MiniDSP later. You would connect it to the preamp usingy a y-adapter or to the speaker output.

The 3.5mm jack on the back of the A07 can be run to an active subwoofer!!! I have not done this myself but the folks from Aiyima say it is so. There is info on the internet on it. Think the Cheapaudioman mentions it in his review of the A07. Great amp! I purchased 2. Actually, ridiculously good for the price.

Think the Cheapaudioman mentions it in his review of the A07. Great amp! I purchased 2. Actually, ridiculously good for the price. You would just need a long enough 3.5mm cable that splits into left and right RCA cable at the other end which would run into your powered subwoofer rca input terminal. Or as gasolin mentions above run off the speaker taps of the amp into the speaker terminals on the sub. So would be running wires to both the speakers and the subwoofer from the amp simultaneously doing it that way. This will probably allow you to use the crossover network of the subwoofer. Just running the 3.5 out of the back of the Aiyima will elminate the crossover (for the mains) i believe and the main speakers would still be running full range. You would get the extra low end of the subwoofer however. Not ideal with the 3.5mm out but it is doable.
