Summary: So you should know it works fine. Not great but fine. But it quit after 5 weeks and doesn't work anymore. I called customer service and no one answered. This was in the middle of the workday. So I emailed them to see if they do repairs, warranty returns whatever. No response at all. Anybody know of a good outdoor receiver for the garage? this one was worth what I paid... for a bit over a month..
Summary: For the price ($80), this radio is not worth it. It demonstrated extremely poor signal discrimination which means whichever the nearest, strongest station in frequency will overwhelm the station you select if its signal is weaker. So unless you’re sitting on top of the broadcast antenna of the station you listen to all of the time, don’t buy this radio. This radio could hardly bring in my station even when it wasn’t bleeding over to nearest stronger station’s signal.
Summary: I've been using this amp with Infinity outdoor speakers for over a year and have never once wished I had another. I've learned from the fantastic customer service department that the power cord is vulnerable to shorts if it gets wet, so it needs to be protected from elements. The sound quality of this relatively inexpensive amp is stunning and I simply think it's a great product.
Summary: This unit works very nicely. I've read complaints about it not being loud enough, I don't have that issue at all. I've hooked it up to my phone and my computer. It's running through a pair of Bose outdoor speakers and they sound great! I don't use the am/fm radio so I can't comment on that. Easy set up and easy to navigate around. Very intuitive.
Summary: Save your money and headache from writing a "traditional" receiver from inside your home to out by the pool. This unit holds up well under the weather (humidity). I have it inside the shed and connected to outdoor speakers and it it so excellent and produces great sound. Highly recommended for the price and quality. Also, if you but a Bluetooth receiver and hook it up to the ipod port, then you can stream your ipod/iphone music right through it. Great product.
Summary: On 2nd unit now, with same problems as the first. The display often just goes blank after a while, but is still lit up and the rest of the unit functions, you just have no idea what the buttons are doing because the display is gone. Unplugging it almost always fixes the problem, but then sometimes it will cycle on/off by itself. The later may be a short in the speaker wire as removing it and replacing fixes it, but need to investigate that further.
Summary: Purchased this to go along with (4) TIC outdoor speakers I was installing around a pool. Unit came and I was immediatly disappointed that it only came with hookups for (2) speakers. Tried looking for an additional connection wire as the reciever has a place for it, but could not locate the special connector. The unit is way under powered and the speakers I purchased had tomax out the volume for decent sound.
