Which amp for atrium 5?


Sep 19, 2022
I have a pair of Atrium 5 speakers for an outdoor setup, these will be mounted to a wall.

Trying to pair them with the right amp, thats not overkill. Based on reviews here and cheapaudioman, leaning towards the AIYIMA line. Was hoping you could help steer my choice. Open to other options if they are right.

T9 looks very tempting, but suspect a tube amp is overkill for my needs? Have hovered over the buy button a few times for this.
A05 seems like the more sensible option, but struggling to find one in stock with Australian power supply.
Any other contenders I should consider, AIYIMA or otherwise?
