        As a sculptor I may not know much about audio systems but I KNOW WHAT I LIKE. After my Studio Stereo gave up from the years of marble dust every new system purchased sounded worse than a can of rocks. In desperation I cobbled a very questionable system together from a $30 DVD/CD player, some very old and beat speakers and amp-ed it with this FANTASTIC PYLE-PRO PC2 2X40WP.Incredible. IT SINGS FAR FAR BETTER THAN THE VERY HIGH END SYSTEMS.The BASS can turn everything to mush/while the TREBLE can run the music up to glass. The range is amazing. The only down side is no Balance but that can easily be fabricated with a 3 pole reostat on the speaker grounds.[...]

        The construction is solid, but the power rating is deceptive. The 40W is peak not RMS output @ 4 ohms. The manual states 8W RMS per channel into 4 ohms. This translates to 4W RMS per channel into 8 ohms. A far cry from the 40W.

        Overall it's a solid amp for small, low wattage speakers. I would recommend to others with the understanding that it's for low wattage speakers (15W) and below.

          I purchased 4 of these amplifiers. I have had to repair all 4, because of bad components in the power supply. Very poor construction internally, with very cheap components. Truly a Pyle.

                Good quality sound for small conference rooms. We are using it during projector and screen installation. Not for Home Cinema use of course, but quite enough for office presentations and trainings.

                    I was using old an desktop computer speaker system at my desk to connect to either my computer or my iPOD. When those speakers died, rather than buy another set of cheap computer speakers, I decided to buy this low cost amp and try using my old Polk bookshelf speakers that I hadn't used for a long time.I bought the 40W version of this amp instead of the 15W version because, even though I didn't need more power, I thought I would need the EQ. It turns out I defintely needed the EQ to tame the Polks, so the extra $ was worth it.My desktop sound is now amazing. A well spent $...and a perfect amp for this application.

                        My wife bought me some 1980's speakers from Goodwill for $2.99 to use with my Blu-Ray player. I needed a simple amplification system to put these bad boys to work. The Pyle amplifier was perfect! Now my mini home theater sounds great for under $40!!

                                      I use this amp for acoustic testing of loudspeaers. The 1st unit I ordered didn't produce any sound. The power light came on but that was it. B&H did a great job of accepting the bad one and promptly shipping the replacement I requested. Upon first use I detected some AC hum but a wiggle of the RCA jack at the back killed it and off I went about my testing.

                                                Got this to couple a Logitech SqueezeBox Touch to some speakers that I had. Works very well. Not exactly audiophile quality, but pretty good, clean sound. As seems typical of audio power amplifiers, the rated wattage is tested under unrealistic conditions, and is consequently rather optimistic, but this gives plenty of volume to fill a 350 square foot living room. Good value for the money. I would definitely buy again or recommend.

                                                  I wanted a small amplifier to drive some extra speakers I had. I loved mine so much, I bought a second one to give as a graduation gift to my nephew to take to his college dorm room! It is small, light-weight, very versatile and produces terrific sound.

                                                      Not my first choice but it is working to power a few speakers in a small restaurant.

                                                        I love to listen to my music on my mp3 player all around the house. This is my second purchase of the PCA2 mini 40 w amp. I use this amp along with speakers from older stereo systems as with my mp3 player as the stereo input. It is a very cost effective solution for to make some simple, yet quality sounding stereo systems.

                                                            I think this is a fine product, and worth the money. The clips in the back are a little weird, only accepting wires that are pretty small (e.g. 18 gage and higher).

It is used to connect a 5-disc CD player to the speakers. Simple hookup, uncomplicated sound controls and excellent quality of sound for the price. For my purposes there are no downsides to this product. Great Value!

                                                                  I use it for powering 2 Heathkit AS10 speaker cabinets I built back in 1959. I am feeding a siriousXM Sattalite radio into it. Way more than enough power I also sometimes plug the Portable am-sw fm radio into it too. Even the 1986 [...] walkman tape player too. Controls are in the right places, & so are the connections on the back too. It was not a gift.
