Summary: We just received this yesterday and I hooked it up on our patio today. The receiver has great sound considering the cost. My only complaint would be the lack of information in the operating manual regarding the functions/connectivity of the receiver. If I hadn't had some experience hooking up stereos, I would have really had to struggle with the set up. That is the reason for the 4 stars. Otherwise, so far, I am happy with the product.
Summary: The stereo effect is fine it is used in the pool area, But after a couple of hours it shuts down, and I have to go in and put it on. Not sure if I would reccommend this unit to anyone else. I found it on line and thought it was a good deal.
Summary: The speakers sound fine. However; the right channel on the receiver shuts off after about 5 minutes of play. There is also a persistent high pitched humming when listening to a local fm station.
Summary: I purchased this unit to replace an older unit. hooked it up to a brand new cd player and speakers and it sounded terrible. had a constant hiss all the time and after playing it for about 15 minutes something started smelling like smoke. come to find out it was the new receiver. needless to say I returned it and purchased a different brand. I didn't even want to mess with trying another one like they suggested. totally not impressed with this piece!!!
Summary: Such a nice package with so much good, but so much just done wrong. They had a chance to really knock it out of the park with this system but failed in the basics.
Pros: Nice package good sound quality and lots of power for the price. Very sensitive tuner.
Cons: The instruction (Owners manual) is weak, and that is being kind. I have not seen a manual this bad in years. The tuning is in need of serious work and the auto assigns channels without you being able to unselect them.
Summary: The sound on the system is great..........BUT - very difficult to hook up with NO instructions. After several hours we finally figured it out. What we discovered is the stereo cannot operate without the remote control........so put the remote in a safe place......don't loose it or the stereo will not work!!! Unless we are doing something wrong........which remember NO INSTRUCTIONS!!
Summary: I installed the Pyle reciever with outdoor speakers under a roofed-in but open area on my dock at my beach house. The sound quality and volume of this sytem is very good considering that it is an outdoor installation. It seems to be holding up very well in the Carolina salt air and serves me very well as a "fishing buddy". Thanks for the great value in this package!
Summary: I had an old, old 40-watt amp that I used to power a pair of speakers hooked to my computer in my bedroom/office. It took a crap after 20 years and this unit looked to fit my needs. I like it with one exception. The remote doesn't control the power on and off. I have recently pulled a set of Klipsch speakers out of the closet and hooked them to it. Wow! I am surprised the neighbors haven't complained!! Even at low volume it seems pretty crisp and clear.
Summary: When I power this unit on it only comes on part of the way. Sometimes it will power up all the way and the music starts to play then it will shut down half way. The only thing in the screen is 4 little symbols in the upper left hand corner and the scale on the right hand side. If it did work properly it would probably be a nice stereo. Oh well I guess I bought a lemon.
