Great sound, good-looking, solid unit, but ugly, slow, and overly bright display
3 weeks ago
Summary: The sound quality from this unit is good to excellent, but I wish it had rear headphones and Mic I/O. The rack-mount look is really cool, and great for mounting in a portable system. Sounds warm and feels like a well-engineered unit. I like the chrome buttons bordered in blue as well - really distinctive and beautiful design. The color display, however (for the equalizer and such) is way too bright for evening listening, and cannot be adjusted.
Summary: I thought I was getting an amp that would give me 30 Watts power. Unfortunately, I quickly realized that nothing could be further from the truth. This amplifier at best gives out five Watts power. This is a scam.
Summary: The first amp that I received only had crackling. I then send it back and get a replacement after two weeks. The second unit wasn't much better than the first one. I thought I would give it one more try. The last amplifier I received for 10 minutes after which it only made a squeaking sound. Very disappointed.
Summary: I ordered this amp to drive two bookshelf speakers for my computer. This little amp packs quite a punch and I usually have the volume set at 1/6, any higher would be too loud. You can't adjust the bass or treble with the amp, but they are very well balanced so I don't see a need to. However this might vary depending on your speakers. My bookshelf speakers have 3 cones each with a 4.5" woofer, a 2" mid-range speaker, and a 2" tweeter.
I purchased a second one for the vacation cottage!

Summary: Wow ... amazing machine for the money! As a young AARP member, I often get frustrated with all the electronic switches and controls in the new audio equipment - not with this amp! Good quality sound that drives my speakers better than my surround sound yamaha receiver at higher levels. Simple controls are greatly appreciated and the reproduction is great! I was never a Pyle fan in my younger days, but this amp may change my mind!
