Summary: Somewhat Relevant Background Info: My family has an old sony receiver for the family room. Every powered channel (not the subwoofer output) stopped working. I opened it up and everything seemed fine except for the fuses between the main laminated core transformer and the main bridge rectifier.
Summary: The only way to improve on this amp would be to give it away. This is the perfect amp for entry level bookshelf speakers, or IMO, any speakers under $500. I had originally purchased an Appj tube amp ($200) but for the speakers I was using, I couldnt tell enough of a difference to keep the appj.
Summary: The Dayton DTA-1 is a terrific little portable amp. From the pictures it looks sort of like a toy, but at the price of a decent dinner, it wasn't too big a gamble. From the outside this tiny amp looks and feels a bit spartan. It's very lightweight with small speaker connectors.
2 wires became detached from the board very easily as I was handling it

Summary: Unit has a solid appearance. Out of the box there was no sound coming out of the right channel speakers. Since I paid so little I decided to just open it up and see if I could fix it myself. One look at the board and you can see how it's so inexpensive.
Summary: Really awesome little app is just amazing that they can get this much sound from a tiny little lightweight piece of plastic that mean you're open it up and half of the insides are actually taking up for the four AAA batteries that you can put in it if you want to.
Summary: Exceeded my expectations. I have a plan to listen again to my music collection. There's a lot of details I was missing with my old (really old) Sony. This little amp gives you no noise, only the signal. Haven''t test it with batteries.
Summary: I had a pair of old Apple Pro Speakers (the see-thru spherical ones by Harman-Kardon) and new mac mini. This amp brought them together. My sparkers sound great and soft turn-on/turn-off (which eliminates speaker pop) is a feature that I appreciate every time my computer goes in/out of sleep.
Summary: I am not an audiophile but do enjoy listening to good music and can appreciate an nice sound system. I use this amp with my computer. I had 2 extra energy rc micro cubes and a 10" subwoofer from a 5.1 system that I had upgraded. So I split the 3.5 mm audio out from my computer.
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.
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.
