I recently purchased a pair of JBL 530s for $300 (did I make a good decision?). I’ve been wanting a good pair of speakers for my desktop/workstation. This is my first purchase of unpowered speakers however and I’m having a hard time deciding what sort of amplifier or receiver to get for my set up. I was looking at the Emotiva TA-100 but was uncertain it would provide enough power at 50w per channel. My PC will be the source for this set up.

I’m also open to picking up a sub later on for the system but unsure if it will be necessary.

Does anyone have some suggestions for an amplifier or receiver set up of some sort that would do the trick?

The JBL Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeakers can handle up to 125 W.

That Emotivca receiver (are you sure you also want to pay for an FM tuner?) is probably loud enough. With 50W per channel there's no chance of overloading these speakers, but still loud enough to bother your neighbours.
