Pros: This compact sound amp works well initially. Clean sound, decent bass reproduction and it's inexpensive
Cons: I've been through two of these exact units and both have suffered the same fate: After 3 months of use, turning the volume knob generates static and uneven sound from left/right channels. I use this to power a pair of bookshelf speakers and the audio source is my desktop computer. I tend to leave the volume at the same level and then use the volume Control in Windows to increase the volume so that it goes to all my speakers (including my center and sub). But, as state...
Summary: I bought this unit to power a couple of good quality bookshelf speakers in my motorhome. It was an easy install, just plug and play, and the performance was well above what I expected. There is nothing in the fifty dollar range I know of to compete with it.
Excerpt: Good quality sound for small conference rooms. We are using it during projector and screen installation. Not for Home Cinema use of course, but quite enough for office presentations and trainings.
Excerpt: I was using old an desktop computer speaker system at my desk to connect to either my computer or my iPOD. When those speakers died, rather than buy another set of cheap computer speakers, I decided to buy this low cost amp and try using my old Polk bookshelf speakers that I hadn't used for a long time.I bought the 40W version of this amp instead of the 15W version because, even though I didn't need more power, I thought I would need the EQ.
