HiFiLust reviews the LP2020A


LP202A deconstructed by HiFiLust

Cheap and efficient. Tube amps with terrible topography just can’t hold a note to the brilliance of cheap Chinese engineering.

Distorting just beyond a touch of nine on the dial, Lepy’s LP2020A somehow outperforms the worst Chi-Fi tube amps in bit-perfect output.

Not exactly…

…your father’s T-amp. The latest incarnation of the LP2020A is of the Yamaha YDA138 class D variety.


Yamaha Yonder made in Bukang

Volume at 11 barely drags into -69dB. Earth-shattering sound isn’t what you’ll get from this baby.

However, if you’d desire bit-perfect reproduction at low volumes, the LP2020A is, ahem, a cheap… the cheapest you’ll find.

Ooomphs of bass!!!

Available when bit-perfect is disabled, bass can be overwhelmingly DJesque with a press of a button and turn of a dial.

There isn’t a cheaper way we say.

HiFiLust on a cheap!!!
