Initially I thought this product looked like a good value. I had seen other reviews that stated that their amp had died early but discounted them much to my regret. This is a small amp, good appearance, easy to use. Has volume control, treble, bass control, and on the back has RCA inputs. I plugged this amp into 2 x Yamaha AWR350 outdoor speakers that were rated for slightly over 100 watts with 60 watts RMS. I turned this AMP up 3/4 and it definitely a questionable stretch to say that it's 75 watts. It did not drive these speakers well at all and even at just 3/4 turn the distortion was audible and I am not an audiophile, to my untrained ears this did not sound good. After 5 minutes this unit abruptly died never to return. I am attempting to return it right now. After this united died I plugged the speakers into a stoneage sansui bookshelf system and it sounded great and had plenty of power. I would not recommend this amp.

Sounds OK

by TheDogsCar on 2/10/2014

Pyle makes four off these amps. The PCA1, PCA2, PCA3 and PCA4. I would only recommend the PCA2 and PCA4. The PCA1 does not have Treble and Bass adjustment. The PCA2 has them, and does not have the annoying LED's. The PCA3 is like the PCA4, but has less power, and power is key. These sound much better when you are not pushing them. So, for a few more dollars get the extra power. Basically, if you never plan on turning them up, get the PCA2. If you do, get the PCA4. The LED's are annoyingly bright, and seem meaningless. Most LED's tell you when the system is being over driven. If they are all lit, you are over driving them. These seem to just flash to the music? The other problem, the unit is always warm. Even with no signal and the volume off. I would turn it off every time I was not using it, but experience has taught me, cheap electronics, like light bulbs, are most likely to blow when turned on. Just got it this weekend, so can not comment on longevity; which seems to be the biggest complaint on these.
