Excerpt: I put this in my pool house which gets very hot so the complaints about the loud fan was a plus for me, it is not louder that the fan I have on the shelf. The IPOD dock is a little tricky to connect, but works great once you feel with your finger for the pins to dock the IPOD, after that the controls are on the dock.The wattage rivals that of any outdoor system, and the price is worth every cent.....and more.
Specs seemed ideal, but sound quality at low volume and interference on one channel made me return it.

Summary: Wish I listened to some of the other reviews. Mine had interference on one channel and I wasted hours to troubleshoot it to make sure it wasn't the speakers or speaker wires. From other reviews I would suspect that this unit generally has problems with noises at lower volumes.
Summary: I stream music through it via bluetooth from my tablet to play through my outdoor speakers to attract attention to my store. It has all I need and lots of power. I'm very pleased with this purchase.
Summary: Why I like it: It works great with our speaker system I can use the lonely IPOD that has been sitting around for a couple of years now Price cant be beat We have several outdoor speakers, that we seldom use, but when we do use them it is because there are a lot of people at our house. This is perfect for us, economical and the sound is great. We didn't have any problems setting it up and we haven't had any problems using it.
Summary: Like others have mentioned, I get the same high pitched 'squeal' every so minute or so. Also getting horrible sound feedback when my phone is paired with it via Bluetooth. It sounds like the old 'blackberry too close to the phone' sound. I'll be returning this.
Summary: We purchased this unit to provide audio during our Eagles tailgates . It's running 4 Yamaha NS-AW350B that are mounted on the bottom of the bus. This unit definitely puts out some power. Not quite 2000 watts but perfect for when you want that party atmosphere. With the sound level at 16 it will quickly overload the 400w inverter that we use for temporary power. There is an internal fan to keep the components cool that can be a little noisy at low audio levels.
Summary: This unit worked as advertised with one exception. The blue tooth function had some mild noise on the left front channel. I plugged in a stereo blue tooth receiver module with 1/8 plug to the IPOD MP3 input and the noise went away. I also changed blue tooth transmitters and noticed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 had the most noise with this unit. I tested with my MACBOOK and it worked well.
