  • Summary: I bought two of these after the dissapointing results(lack of bass, flimsy power button) I obtained with my Alesis RA500 I did not expected much but after connecting and let the system cooked for a while the results were as described in the Audiocritic review this little amp is pretty good and delivers a beautiful crystal clean sound there is a buzz in the rca connections but swapping to balance using a rca-trs connector the amp is noiseless.

  • Excerpt: I have been using the A500 for years both in my Home Theater installation business and for my personal use. These amps provide great performance, are an excellent value, and are next to impossible to damage. I had one driving several sets of in room ceiling speakers that the customer said started getting hot on one channel. When I arrived, out could have roasted meat on the amp! When I checked the cabling, the right channel showed 0.2 ohms.
  • Cons: Very bright front lights

  • Excerpt: Pricing was what sold me on this amp. Period. I was flat broke trying to replace a downed citation 7.1 used for reference in an Avid studio. You know the story. Why this amp among the old "bargain" amps? Because it s*cked the least- "Decent enough to get by until I can replace them", is what I tell my self. And that's what it was, noting to write home about. Same tinny highs and flat midrange that you would expect from an amp made from this circuit, right.
  • Pros: Awesome when bridged, Great in a pinch

  • Summary: Like the previous reviewer I also bought two of these amps but unlike him I am using them in a domestic situation, not in a studio. Unlike the guy from the studio I have never used my amps bridged as there is plenty of power for the average domestic listening room. I run the amps either passively bi-amped or with a two way electronic crossover and am currently running my system in balanced mode via XLR's with balanced interconnects but they will run single ended with...

  • Excerpt: I am very impressed with the quality of this amp. I was looking for a inexpensive amp to drive 2 underwater speakers ( electro voice 30 ) in a swimming pool. So I feel kinda bad using such a high quality beautifull amp to entertain my friends while swimming, but its nice to have refrence quality no matter where you listen
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Powerful

Blown away

  • Excerpt: I've been looking for a replacement stereo amp for my old Carver ever since one channel started distorting . Seemed like there were only 7.1 channel 100 watt amps for surround sound, I already have two of those, but I still love the sound of my my old school JBLs. Got this amp and am hearing subtle background riffs I haven't heard in a long time. Fantastic amp and really affordable, I'll be getting at least another one for my Design studio, maybe one for the deck...
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Powerful, Professional Functions
