Works fine for my purpose although it is a real piece of junk

Summary: I read some reviews before my purchase. I think many people who wrote them were not technically proficient, as most were totally positive. A few were technically honest: this thing IS a piece of junk. It works just fine although the blue LEDs are really incredibly bright as everyone notes.
Summary: I bought this amplifier to boost audio from Mp3 players and YouTube videos in our church's youth classroom. It works extremely well for both purposes. We get plenty of amplification without any distortion. The separate bass and treble controls are a huge bonus.

Pros: Compact, Easy to Install, Great For Lofi Comparison
