jaco_benhur a Casual Listener, Audio Review
14 October 2013
  • 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...

  • 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.

good amp

Ryan C., Newegg

  • Summary: not sure why newegg put this in the home receiver category... you will need a preamp/pc sound card with inputs installed in your home theater to integrate this into it. it is also only stereo.
  • Pros: great amp for the money.
  • Cons: only passive cooling, but not really a con if it works well.

Excellent value, sound

Zion D., Newegg

  • Summary: The passive cooling isn't a con but be aware that you need to make sure it has good airflow, especially if its in a rack.
  • Pros: Currently I have 1 of these running my center channel in my home theater. It sounds great, no hissing. Seems to be very clean. I like the passive cooling so it makes no noise. The multiple inputs make it very flexible. All in all, for the price I think it is nearly unbeatable.
  • Cons: Cheesy looks, I guess?

I Own Two

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Better with higher efficiency speakers/cabs. The police will come to your home if you turn them up too high. Can do a Gym or smaller club to adequate volume. Did I mention that they were clean. If you can deal with cons, they are a great value.
  • Pros: Very clear (hi fi) and powerful in home stereo settings, can be bridged into Sub for clean thumping. These have satisfied me both at home and as an amateur DJ. Have multiple ins (RCA, 1/4", XLR) & outs (Binding posts, 1/4").
  • Cons: Volume controls and output binding posts have given me problems, although I admit I have been kind of rough on them.

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.

Great little amp

  • Excerpt: If you need a powerful little amp for the extra channels foryour home theater, or you are one of the vanishing numbers(like myself) who need an amp for a passive subwoofer, thisis the obvious choice. You could pay 3 or 4 times as muchand still not get as much clean power.
