Summary: Died 3 days after first use. initial thought was internal fuses (there are two) blown, but nope, replaced those and still dead. No other obvious things to look at without an electronics background, so unless you do have that background,best look at something else.
Summary: I am using this amp to run a variety of external things, and it has plenty of input channels, which makes it a very nice amp that serves multiple functions. I especially like the post style speaker connects.
this ended up being better than my initial expectations!

Summary: I bought this Pyle PT-600A not for looks, but for actual audio use in my automotive shop which has 10 in wall and in ceiling speakers routed through a Niles MSA-10 speaker selector. I found this amp on warehouse deals for sixty five bucks shipped so I figured even though all power ratings (300W peak in this case) are hugely over blown, that this probably had enough grunt to comfortably run my 10 speakers. Happily, I wasn't wrong about that.
Summary: Aside from looking like a Heathkit project (faceplate color scheme), this amp is a good value for the money. It sounds nice and offers a host of inputs. The preset EQ settings work better than adjusting the bass and treble control manually. The drawbacks include (as mentioned earlier) the faceplate isn't that eye-appealing and I wished that a balance control and second speaker outputs were incorporated in the unit. Overall this amp sounds great!
