        I am using this amp with an Airport Express and Niles CM760 speakers in my bedroom. The power output is clean and strong. The bass and treble controls are unusually useful and placed at very good frequencies. This thing is made of steel, not plastic, and built like a tank. The power supply is internal which is great... no wall wort! If your looking for a compact, high power, well built amplifier... look no further.However, nothing is perfect, and the LED level indicators on the front panel are ridiculously bright, quite annoying, and don't signal clipping!#$%?. Simple "signal" and "clip" indicators would be great.[...].

        Well why would one buy this kind of amplifier in this price range? Most likely one would buy this guy for the reasons I bought it, because there are some pretty good speakers sitting in the basement and more than a few laptop and MP3 playing devices scattered around the upper stories. Or maybe you're about to go to a new school or a new duty station and you figure you can get speakers anywhere but you don't want to lug your old ones with you. And for that this little amp is very handy. It's got just about enough capability to irritate off your new room mate, rattle the Salvation Army speakers you just got for twenty bucks, and it can remind you of better times gone by or better times to come. It gives you a bit of treble and bass control and beats the bejeezus out of most of what comes out of computer speakers. But for fidelity, for some serious listening, for a cantata or a concerto and your aging Klipsch corner horns you may find this amp a little disappointing. If you want the kind of sound that convinces you you're really in the swamp with the birds and the frogs, or if you're driving speakers that tell you the war is all around you, you're going to have to spend some more money on a more serious amplifier. The PCA3 doesn't pretend to be that kind of amp. My speakers were good enough that I was expecting just a bit more accuracy. But until I'm ready to spend about 20 times more for an amplifier I'll have some fun with this guy.

          Comments about Pyle Pro PCA3 Mini 2 x 75W Stereo Power Amplifier:

          I'm using it with a couple of old Bose Bookshelf speakers, in a 250 sf office.
          It won't crank really loud before distorting ( it seems more like a 2x 15w amp), and you'll want to make sure not to overdrive the input. However, at reasonable volumes it runs just fine, and both its size and price are very convenient.

              I am one week into using the PCA3 to powering my homemade Auratone Mixcubes for audio monitoring. The PCA3 is working great right out of the box! The front metering LEDs are unreasonably and obnoxiously bright, so unless you put this amplifier inside an opaque box, you'll most likely want to put some sort of tape over them to keep from injuring a retina or two.

              Otherwise, the box is performing as expected and is powering my mixcubes with no trouble, and without any noticeable distortion even at pushed volume levels.

                Purchased to use as replacement speaker amp for new , and expensive, TV that had marginal built in speakers. Hooked this amp to Mirage mini Nanos and a very inexpensive Earthquake Mini Me 8" subwoofer. Sound is quite good from the Nanos, marginal (boomy) from the sub (not the Pyle's fault!) and better than the TV speakers. As has been noted the flashing bright blue lights of the amp are very distracting and I had to cover them up with black duct tape even though the amp is sitting way off to the side facing a wall about 1.5-2.0 feet away.

                      I have been using this for a month now and am very happy. It powers a pair of Polk mini monitors for my PC. It is very compact and sits nicely on the top of my PC. The audio quality is very good. Also, it has quality construction with a metal case. I like the On/Off rocker switch and the feel of the three control knobs.

                      The blue power level LEDs might be a little too bright. (My blind neighbor has asked me a couple of times why I have pulsing blue lights in my house.) Consider placing the box so it is not in your line of sight.

                      In summary, I am very pleased with quality and performance for the price.

                        Only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because of the blue LEDs. I love them, don't get me wrong, but they are WAY too bright. Other than that, it's a fantastic little amp. I had some M-Audio AV40's laying around with a blown amp, so I re-wired them to be passive speakers and hooked them up to this little puppy. They sound as good as new, beats the M-Audio wanted for a new amp. Not the greatest looking piece of electronics, but does the job well.

                              I have powered up my old Tannoy System 8 monitors in my home studio after using various powered speakers the past few years. This little Pyle amp makes them sound as good or better than my old Kenwood that pooped out 10 years ago. They have such good bass that I don't need a sub. I am pleasantly surprised by this inexpensive piece of gear. I even like the the blue light. Go Pyle!

                                  For powering loudspeakers under $75, this little box is great. Would be nice if it had a remote (or could be powered by a universal remote), but at that price point, it's tremendous.

                                    I am powering 2 ceiling speakers in meeting room and have had two of these crud out on me in less that a year. Utility-wise, these are great for what we needed, but need to work of course.

                                        I hooked it up to an apple express wifi and streamed music to my basement and back patio. The sound was very nice and plenty loud for casual listening. Note the 75w rating is peak power so don't expect to power a mega house party with this model.

                                            Bought to run a pair of Klipsch bookshelf speakers w/ an iPod as a portable system for the yard/garage/and patio. Works great, sound is clean, amp is powerful, and has all the necessary features for a simple system.

                                              Installed in pump house for local pool. Will see how it holds up to pool house environment. Super simple amp. Single RCA input single output. Relatively clean sounding. Note 10% THD at full power.

                                                      I purchased this amp to power my home studio monitors. I didn't need anything very loud and wanted an amp that was simple. Sound is clear with no buzz or hum. Lights are a little annoying. My monitors are only 6", but can handle up to 300 a piece, and this little guy fills them out nicely. The great thing is if it goes out on me, I simply throw it away and buy another one. Construction is very solid. Bottom line is "it is, what it is" If your looking for something to blow the roof off your house and all the bells and whistles, then this one is not for you. Now if your looking for an affordable, good sounding, compact, decent amp, then looki into this one.

                                                          We use this amp to power 4 8ohm 6 inch speakers in the ceiling of a motion picture theater lobby. It amplifies the output from a Music Distrubtion card and sounds just as good as the [$] amp that it replaced.
