    This very simple, basic amplifier was a perfect fit for my organization's needs. We have a client who received a donated, older Samsung LCD flat panel monitor and a pair of non-powered JBL speakers. The setup had been used for demonstration purposes, and was now to be used for staff training.

    The problem was the Samsung monitor's on-board amplifier was designed only for providing signal to its own powered speakers. It was never intended to drive anything like the donated JBL speakers with any real authority, and the original matching Samsung speakers were not included with the donation. Consequently, the volume level was extremely low in the training facility, and complaints began to mount among the training staff and trainees.

    I looked for a low cost solution for our client and initially found nothing short of high priced integrated amps, Home Theater recievers, or super cheap, and poorly designed PA amps. When I found the Audio Source Amp100, I almost couldn't believe that such a high quality, moderately powerful amplifier was available at such a low price! This unit seemed too good to be true, and appeared to be a tailor-made solution for our problem. After a several months of use, I can say that the unit is trouble free, simple to operate, sounds great with music and TV audio. Our client, our trainees, and I am completely satisfied with this excellent product.

    I recently purchased one of these units for a small installation at a clients facilities. My client was looking for a cost efficient option for a two zone amplifier. The Amp 100 was a great solution saving my client several hundred dollars, needless to say they were very pleased. I would advise the Amp 100 to anyone looking for two zone solution for around $100. The only problem with this unit to be aware of is the front manual switch that activates both zones A and B simultaneously. This switch can be mechanically sticky. Be sure your clients are aware of this as it may seem to them that it will not allow both zones to function simultaneously.

      Comments about AudioSource AMP100 Stereo Power Amplifier:

      I needed an amp to connect my TV to some large stereo speakers, my old amp having died a while back. The AMP 100 connected easily and gives a decent sound for the price. The only upgrades that would be nice would my another set or two of outputs (it has two), and a remote control. However at the price I paid I'm not complaining.

        This amp was the perfect fit for my needs. I have it powering a pair of polk atrium 4 speakers on our covered deck and a pair of polk t15 and psw111 sub (speaker level connection) in the house. I wanted something simple that would allow me to play music off of my phone or satellite radio receiver. Reading the reviews and understating the auto switching allowed me to set up the system perfectly for my needs. The amp provides good clean power to both sets of speakers and is pretty loud both in the house and outside.

          Comments about AudioSource AMP100 Stereo Power Amplifier:

          I bought this unit as a zone amp to feed two sets of speakers from my existing living room stereo, one set to the kitchen/family room and one set out on the deck. So now I have music throughout the house and outside as well, all from the same source. Two stereo outputs at 50 watts per channel is more than adequate for the job, good quality, and the price is right. The unit has a second input, for an iPod or other source, and also has a line out, handy to add another subwoofer outside.

                I run iTunes from an iMac through this to a powered sub and a small set of speakers. It sounds fine on its own but when I use the pre-amp in iTunes it just cranks the house full.

                For a hundred bucks, there is no down side to it.

                    This small, simple amplifier by Audiosource is easy to connect, only 2 switches (volume and balance) so easy to use, will drive 2 sets of speakers, and has no remote. I purchased it because it is relatively inexpensive and I only wanted to amplify a cable TV audio signal for musical entertainment on our outside porch. While not a sophisticated amplifier, I gave it 5 stars because it satisfied all our requirements.

                      I purchsed the AMP100 as a secondary amp for a Sonos music zone. It has performed admirably so far. I love the auto-on feature because it prevents me from having to manually power the unit up when I want to listen to music remotely. It runs nice and cool and sounds great too. I recommend this amp for anyone looking for multi-zone amplification.

                      The only reason that I did not give it five stars is its lack of an optical input.

The amps have both been very reliable. Sturdy contstruction and handy line in/out to be able to daisy chain the signal input to both amps. For the purpose I use them for, they have been great.

                          This amp was a great buy. I've used it connected to my Imac. Not too big to fit on a decent sized computer desk, and doesn't run extremely hot either. Simple setup, simple controls. Does what it is supposed to do- provide power to my speakers without any issues. Sounds great too.

                              This amp has a handsome appearance; it appears well-constructed with banana connectors and silky controls. It is certainly not difficult to set up and even offers selectable A/B speaker outputs. It is also compact and produces relatively little heat. I'm hearing new detail in music I know well and have not heard before. In other words, the sound quality seems very good. The worst part is simply finding a piece of equipment like this since all one normally sees is much larger, heavier receivers which don't hit the nail on the head when all you need is a simple, quality stereo amp. So if you're reading this, you may have the hard part behind you!

                                we use this unit as a zone amp for a multi-zone system in a B&B.it's clean/low-distortion, with a great deal more definition than the multi-channel unit we had been using.... very straightforward setup. and, as the unit is deployed in our master bedroom, very good for marital bliss. i no longer get requests to turn the [*] music down or off....

                                  I am running this amp in a commercial environment, and connecting a PA to the first input, which makes it absolutely perfect for my needs.

                                  I bought a second for another room that will also require the automatic switchover, which is why I bought this amp - but for price paid, it's excellent value regardless of whether or not you need/use that feature.

                                      This amp is used to power two pair of stereo speakers and it gets its signal from the tape out of an a/v receiver. The amp sports a volume control for each pair of speakers connected to it. I made sure the speakers are 8 ohm and that the speaker cable runs don't exceed 75' (16 gauge cable). Works great for quiet to moderate loud levels. One of the volume knobs pulls right off--otherwise I'd have given 5 stars given how cheap this thing is.

                                      I had a couple of big old 8 ohm JBL speakers I hated to part with and a new IPOD. I've been plugging the Ipod into a boom box in my shop out in the barn, but the sound just "wasn't there".
                                      I set up the Amp 100 to replace that setup and it's everything I hoped it would be, and cheaper than most other options I've seen on the internet.

                                        If you want a well-built amplifier that can be hid away and doesn't need to be turned on and off, this is a great choice.

                                        It's heavy and well-built for the price, and the auto-sensing means that it will turn itself on and off according to whether an audio signal is present or not, so you don't need to turn it on and off yourself.

                                        The bridging feature is also interesting, seeing as single speakers with stereo inputs are not that plentiful and are often expensive for good ones.

                                          I wasn't expecting much build quality for the low price but I was quite surprised. The AMP100 is quite solidly built. It runs amazingly cool too while powering my surround speakers. The auto-on feature is exactly what I wanted since the amp is tucked away inside a cabinet running my surrounds.The only small downside is the balance control is very slightly angled when it is on the center mark but that's being very picky to find a negative.I would probably have paid double for this unit.[...]
