Perhaps best state the exact model of those but for PC audio/nearfield many an old/vintage speaker have found new life mated with cheap but hifi sounding T-amps? Look at stuff like the Lepai TA2020 and TK2050 based amp like Dayton DTA100-A, Topping TP-22, etc

well. thanx for reply and few days back i googled especially about lepai t2020, my main priority is to get low freq bass, is it sufficient to power these oldies?? i gave a look at the national market, Bangalore (well known for china products), many options were there real cheap starting from 8$, but can u tell which type of amp(class, considering it's a china product), omh required, etc,,..


(my speakers are 6ohm and 100rms each, model-LS-n551 L)

I have actually tested vintage Kenwood LSK-727s floor standers with 12" woofers with a Lepai TA2020 and the results are actually shockingly good. Granted it was somewhere between a smallish to medium room and those are rather efficient speakers but if you need more power the TK2050 based amps pack more power in the same small footprint at a higher price of course ^^ However if tight, quality deep bass is a must you can always add a quality 8-10" active sub down the road
