Summary: After reading the negative reviews I still wanted to buy this as it fit the budget and had the options I wanted. I opened the box today to make sure it worked. Set everything up and turned it on, the speakers made a pop even with the volume all the way down not a great thing but not an issue as other reviewers have said. Selected my song to listen to and a nice clean sound came out of the speakers.
Summary: This Pyle amp lasted 1 week!!! then blew!!! BLEW!!!! junk junk junk!!! unfortunately on my part it didnt get hooked up till after the MAJIK 30 days were over,,,, they wont replace it anyone need a boat anchor!!!!!!
Heavy Amp! Specs are heavier than they trully are. But still a decent amplifier.

Summary: Like most all other audio equipment, advertised ratings are in PEAK power. Don't ever expect to get a clean 1000W/channel from this amp. Having said that, I benched tested this amp using lab equipment. It DOES do a very clean 175W@8 ohms/channel. It does produce 325W/channel@4 ohms cleanly. However, using a curve and factoring in distortion of about 10%, those numbers look a little more like the ratings.
Excerpt: The Pyle PTA2 Mini 2X40W Stereo Power Amp is the perfect amp for the stereo minimalist. This amp, a good turntable and nice speakers will provide the perfect retro vinyl album experience. Try it and enjoy, it's 1969 again!
Summary: Product works perfectly. Doesn't deliver the promised power, but what amp does... Besides from that it is fairly simple to set up and there are no unnecessary buttons or lights. It is perfect to be hidden in a cabinet and do it's thing. I also like the design. Sleek brushed metal. I don't hear any humming or any distortion of sound so that's a plus. So if you are looking for powerful and cheap amp with multiple zones this is definitely an option.
