My dad has some older speakers that I would want to pick-up and use. The problem is over the years the amp that came with it got broke.

Now I'm looking into using them with my computer (laptop). So I'm looking into amps and preamps that would make everything work together. Problem is I'm not that good in this stuff and I would like some feedback from you guys.

The speakers are a pair of Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) DM580.

Specs:

- 2 x 8" composite fibre mid/base drivers

- 25mm aluminium dome tweeter

- Power handling: 10 - 150w RMS

- Impedance: 8 ohms

- Sensitivity: 91db

I found anAmerican Audio VLP300 Professional Amplifier

Specs:

300 Watts

Daul Fans

Compact Design

Front LED Meters

300 Watts power

Daul Fans, Compact Design, Front LED Meters

Output Power: 150W RMS Per Channel @ 4 Ohms, 1kHz, 0.1% THD / 100W RMS Per Channel @ 8 Ohms, 1kHz, 0.1% THD / (Bridge Mode, Mono)

300W RMS @ 8 Ohms, 1K Hz, 1% THD

Total Harmonic Distortion: Less Than 0.1% (20Hz - 20kHz @ 8 Ohms)

Frequency response: (+ or -01db, @rated output Power, 8 Ohms): 20Hz-20KHz

Damping Factor @ 8 ohm: 260; Slew Rate: 15V per usec

Impedance: 20 Ohms balanced / 10 Ohms unbalanced

Cooling system: 2 individual fans

High/low pass filter; Input sensitivity selector ; Ground lift

Dimensions: 13-1/4"L x 19"W x 1-3/4"H

Also aGemini PA-7000 Professional Preamplifier.

Specs:

Solid-state stereo preamplifier

Designed to fit into a single space of an audio rack mount

Three-band equalizer for Bass/Mid/Treble

Four inputs and a 1/4" microphone input with level control

Ideal for amplifying up to 4 sources of audio to line-level

Do you guys think that these components are compatible? Will this setup work if I plug it into my laptop's headphone jack?

Thanks!
