yeeco 50W stereo amplifier

I got an 808 Tt100 bluetooth turntable for Christmas and a 19-disc collection of JS Bach’s complete organ works by Walter Kraft.  I am a life-long fan of baroque organ music and my most favorites are Buxtehude and JS Bach.  This was the most thoughtful gift I had ever received from my lovely wife Mrinda.

Until now,  I have been listening to the discs on my PC speakers.  Several years ago I had an awesome 200W stereo amplifier from radio shack I used to drive my home theater.  I had to leave it behind when I sold my house.

I had so much fun building the stereo alarm clock with the kids,  I began thinking about building an amplifier for my turntable.  I found this yeeco 50W stereo amplifier board on amazon for $12.99 and wanted to give it a try.

I repurposed some old 2W 8-Ohm speakers from a broken CD player and hot glued them into the box that the amp came in,  hooked up an old 12V battery from a UPS to power the amplifier and connected it up to the turntable for a quick test.  Consider it an upcycle project.  So far, so good.  This amp could easily blow out these speakers, so I keep the volume way down.   I am looking at buying some quality 200W speakers and building my own cabinets so my neighbors can also enjoy my Bach records.  I’ll post the results.
