Summary: I knew I could find an amp to power speakers out on the deck without having to pay for a radio tuner or anything else. And I wanted something small and inconspicuous rather than those huge home theatre boxes. The Pyle mini home amp does exactly what I wanted how I wanted.
Summary: I been using this every day and it has been holding up great (I have 2 tower speaker hooked up at max 60W per speaker). I have not ran into any problems with it and have no complaints. Actually i would recommend this to anyone who wants a simple amp for their office speakers or a living room.
Summary: Decent amp but specs misleading I have some spare speakers around the house that I don't use often and thus I wanted to get an inexpensive amp to power those. The Pyle seemed like a good deal at what it does. So I gave it a try and below is what I think about this amp. If you are looking to power some smaller speakers then this amp will definitely work. Don't expect to power some larger speakers though. The 120 Watts rated RMS power is simply misleading.
Summary: This is a solid inexpensive amp. I used it to power some in ceiling speakers in my game room. It got the job done, however you get what you pay for, it is not a high end piece of sound equipment. Also, what others have said about the crappy speaker wire terminals is true.
Summary: Case history for the need for building in quality, specially if quality will not be inspected. Pop was heard from right channel when unit was first turned on. Only left channel worked thereafter. Unit was replaced by Amazon within two days. Both channels worked on replacement unit, but... short whistle sound was heard upon inserting USB stick and continuous clicking or chattering from both channels while playing. Source selector knob was about 90 deg off.
Summary: This Amp is great. I have connect to two bose 8" book shelf speakers in my garage. I use it instead of a receiver and have never turned it up more than half way for my own comfort and I like loud music. I have not noticed any distortion or nise normally associate with economical amps. Money well spent!
Summary: Never owner a PYLE product before, so I was skeptical. I needed: 1. something compact / small in size 2. multiple inputs (Total of 5) 3. sound control ( bass / treble/balance) 4. high power 5. decent price Needless to say, I was surprised at the sound quality. This little amp packs a hard punch. Its compact size makes it easy to take anywhere. I was so impressed with this amp, I bought a second to go on the road.
Summary: I replaced a previous 40 watt Pyle with this one as it had more functions and power. Except now I have to unplug my headphones to hear the small Bose speakers its hooked up to. No noticable improvement in more powerful sound either. In fact the 40 watt version works better as my TV sound. Avoid it. Runs Hot, but no "fire" yet!
Strong product for the price - lots of inputs a plus

Summary: I purchased this while at the same time purchasing the much less expensive Lepai 2020A. The Pyle has plenty of oomph but interestingly, the Lepai seems to be a considerably louder in relation to dial setting. Both seem to max out around the same volume zone in terms of distortion but I think the sound on the Pyle is a little more accurate than the Lepai.
Summary: Alright, so I'm just going to put it out there, Pyle definitely lives up to its name, being a "pyle of...". This amp sounded great for the time that it worked, then one day out of the blue, just dies. Completely. I hear a little electronic hum when i flip the switch, which then goes away after a short period of time. No status/red light, nothing. There is nothing wrong with the rest of my system, power lines, fuses or anything.
