Summary: I bought this unit because of the price and the usb port on the front panel. It works as advertised, not bad for an inexpensive rig. But the cooling fan noise is LOUD, louder than soft passages in the music I listen to. Reminds me of the noise level on a plane, the whooshing sound of air rushing by.
Summary: When it works it works wonderfully! However... the power cuts off randomly. It seems like a lose wire inside. Of course the problem didn't start until right after the warranty expired! We have also had issues with the volume cutting out unexpectedly.
I was never really happy with it while it was "working"

Summary: I purchased this amplifier one year and one week ago, and this week it failed. I was never really happy with it while it was "working". The controls are archaic, and the indicators are primitive.
Summary: I really like this PT380AU. Has more than enough power for my needs and looks great the way it lights up. I do however have one issue with it. Every time I turn it on the volume is on way up high. I don't know if that is normal for this unit.
