Great amp, cheap cables

Daniel, Amazon
12 September 2014
  • Summary: Looks great small provides enough power to piss off the neighbors and get a house party going. For the price I was really impressed with it as far as power and versatility. My only complaint is that the wires that come with are very cheap. The tiny aux cable < 1ft. that was in the box sucks and is already useless; additionally, the power cable if it moves to the wrong position cuts power and I have had this for less than a year.

Unbeatable Value

I.B. Miller, Amazon
11 August 2014
  • Summary: If you searched for this specifically, you know what it is. If you found this by accident, just buy it. The Sonic Impact (this is a very nice, higher-quality clone) T-Amp is legendary. These amps can make music that many amps in the <1000 range cannot touch. Silences are completely black, instruments clear, and voices are beautiful. Get some reasonably high-effeciency speakers and let them sing.

Great deal on a basic amp for drivers

Richard MacAleese, Amazon
9 August 2014
  • Summary: I've been using this little amplifier with a pair of 12W 8 ohm drivers (Tang Band W3-1364SA 3" Bamboo Cone, sold by Parts Express) for five years. They still sound beautiful, like the day I bought them. The amplifier receives sound from my computer, which has seen four different sound output sources since 2009. The speakers have reached impressive volumes with all of them. I've never had to turn the volume on this amplifier all the way up.

Better sound quality than SMSL.

Alan Lee, Amazon
25 July 2014
  • Summary: I bought this because my pervious SMSL Class T Amp was broken after 1year and 10 month of use, pretty short life span. When I hooded it up with all the same setting, I found that Dayton DTA-1 provided way better sound quality than SMSL!! The bass is more solid and firm, unlike SMSL projecting sloppy bass; the human voices are much sweeter too.

Use stereo speakers as computer speakers

Big Ed, Amazon
16 July 2014
  • Summary: This just works. No strange noises; no pops turning it on and off; and no real heat. I am using it to power a pair of quality BIC bookshelf speakers to make a fine speaker system for a computer. It does have an overly bright LED, but that problem was simply addressed with a small piece of electrical tape.

Pretty good

P. Mulloy, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: I got this so I could play music from my computer out on the deck. It drives a couple of Yamaha indoor-outdoor speakers and from a sound point of view it does a reasonable job, especially considering the price. I keep it in a Rubbermaid box on the deck and it has gotten quite sticky while it still plays OK.

Great product with an insane price

Eyal, Amazon

  • Summary: and you know what's amazing about it? I found out something I havent even thought about before having a world class amp that is so small you can actually carry it with: Im now taking my bose small stereo speakers (two tops and a sub) when travelling for camping or to a hotel around the country.

Nice sound

  • Summary: Nice sound. I was able to use this amplifier to build a "speaker table" I basically repurposed an old coffee table and installed some speakers into it...
