Pros Low price
Plays louder than expected
Cons I could not get the line to work without creating a low hum, so I used headphone to RCA plug Y-cord and had no problems after that.
Summary I bought this amp to power two tiny ok shelf speakers I had laying around after my computer speakers died. I coupled the speakers and amp with a 40watt powered sub I also had and the sound is fantastic for something in this price point.
Pros Input using headphone to RCA plug Y-cord. Plug into IPhone with MLPlayer Lite as a DLNA player or with Pandora for streaming music. I used (good) recycled speakers that were stored in my closet.
Cons Bright light when on (cover with bandaid).
Summary Great low-cost compact media player.
Pros Cheap. Works.
Cons Misleading power claims. No headphone jack.
Summary This amp claims to output 20 watts per channel, which is kind of true. At 4 ohms it will push nearly that before distortion is audible. However, most home speakers are 8 ohms. So most people will only get 2 x 10 watts out of this amp.
For many applications, however, this is just fine. I use the amp to drive two 8 ohm outdoor speakers on my back patio and get plenty of clean volume from them. If it where any louder my neighbors would call the cops.
This is a bare bones amp. But for the price, well, what do you expect? I do wish it at least had a headphone jack. That couldn't add too much to the cost.
All in all, a great little amp once you consider the price. I just wish the advertised power rating where clearer.
Pros A pre amp for home stereo, motorcycle sound, or garage sound: provides treble & bass boost: drive small speakers directly: It's a cheap way to get get a little boost or a little sound where you need it.
Cons Unit can get very (scary) warm. Sound is every bit what you should expect for $20. As your turn up the volume, bass, & treble, unwanted noise increases in kind.
Summary Good choice for an affordable if not disposable means of addressing low power issues on many types of primitive sound applications. You get what you pay for.
Pros Use it to play music from my phone through blue tooth. It is hooked up to rock speakers in my back yard. It is also easy to pack away at the end of a nice day.
Cons For the price, the unit has no cons
Summary Working in the back yard will never be the same. Picked up a Blue Tooth adapter from Radio Shack for $15.00. Plugged it into the MP3 input on this little amp. Wired my rock speakers to the amp and I have my music playing from my phone while I work about the back yard. At the end of the night, I just unplug it and bring it inside. The only hitch is when I move too far away from the Blue Tooth Adapter, but this is not the amps problem. Great little outdoor solution.
