Excerpt: Good: Simple, inexpensive stereo amplifier<br /><br />Bad: <br />(1) NOT 40 Watts RMS per channel; the website is incorrect. The documentation lists the power as 40W PEAK, or 10W at 10% THD into 4 ohms. <br /><br />(2) The unit has a voltage switch for 120/240VAC operation, but a captive 120VAC plug. Why even have the switch?!
Excerpt: I use this to drive medium-size 8 ohm Bose speakers from a Mac and from a boombox with an audio-out jack. I use the boombox for CDs and radio. The sound is quite good, especially considering the price.
Excerpt: Amp is for my patio speakers and is driven by my Allen & Heath audio mixer. The first time I connected it with new wiring and loudspeakers it was defective. Can't even hear the left channel it is so low. I'm very disappointed that Radio Shack didn't sell me a quality product.
Pros: Easy Controls
Cons: Poor Sound Quality, Rt Ch 10x Louder Than Lef
Excerpt: I have speakers from previous sound equipments, two regular 40 watt and two subwoofers that i previously tied together. I saw this stereo amplifier and once the connection was done I have nothing else but enjoy powerful sound quality. I had the cables for the TV and I connected them to the amplifier and now I have surround system, not forgetting to mention that with an adapter you can add boost of quality sound from your computer too.
Excerpt: I have purchased a couple of these types of amps from pyle. The first model I put in a business for a couple of outdoor speakers and it has worked perfectly for years now. This one I used in another business to power 2 pair of ceiling speakers. I hooked them up so the power ratings should have matched and impedence was fine. It went bad after 6 months. Im going to try to get pyle to take care of it. I will update this review based on the outcome.
Pros: Easy Controls, Good Sound Quality, Lightweight
