      Comments about Pyle Pro PMX402M - 400 Watt 4-Channel Powered PA Mixer/Amplifier:

      The intended use was as a small PA and background music system via the USB. After about an hour of use the volume dropped to barely audible. Adjusting the knobs brought it crashing back, but it continued to drop out unexpectedly. I needed to return it, so ended up losing the shipping cost. I would not recommend Pyle...stick to better know brands...Yamaha, Mackie,...

        Comments about Pyle Pro PMX402M - 400 Watt 4-Channel Powered PA Mixer/Amplifier:

        System had noise in it from day one. I thought it was our building's AC, but no, it's just noisy everywhere I go. After several months of use, the unit failed in mid production use. The output IC was replaced and a jack was repaired by manufacturer's repair company(out sourced company) via warranty. Unit came back, with less noise. Mixer is now two years old and failed again during performance. Smoke emited from the vents. Hopefully, warranty will stand up, but now cannot trust to use during a performance.

          My other pa head was in a case in storage when lightning struck our house. It destroyed the pa head although it wasn't plugged into anything. I bought this one just to see if the rest of my system was okay. I paid [$] more than the current price. I was amazed at its power and features for such a good price. I would have paid a technician that or more to look at my other amplifier. A super deal at this current price indeed.

          Comments about Pyle Pro PMX402M - 400 Watt 4-Channel Powered PA Mixer/Amplifier:

          Our club needed a simple, inexpensive, powerful PA amp for making announcements at outdoor events. After looking at the specs and price for this model, we decided to give it a shot.

          I connected it to a pair of new Peavey PR 10 speakers connected effectively in parallel. Using the 1/8" input, sound quality was great on a variety of music - the exception being that it seems to struggle to reproduce solo piano recordings without them sounding overdriven/clipped/distorted, no matter how quietly they're playing. It's odd because everything else it reproduces - voices, drums, brass, etc., are all extremely clear. It is definitely not cheating on power output, but they've saved a lot of money on the mixer section. Sadly I'm not sure if using the Tape Input via RCA would be any better.

          In any event, it will work brilliantly for what we want - use with microphones and some light background music to cover an outdoor area about 200' wide by 100' deep and cut through ambient noise of portable generators, etc.

          Note that the USB input isn't for iPods, but for something like a USB hard drive or thumb drive with folders containing MP3 files. If you're using an iPod, use a 1/8" cable. Also remember that it is straight mono, and while it has two 1/4" output jacks, there is no stereo capability.

              I purchased this unit new. After about 10 minutes of operation the sound cut out, then came back on but was totally distorted, constantly cutting in and out. AFter testing different cables, 3 keyboards, and 2 speakers, the problem was with the unit. The distributor told me to contact the mfg, which I did and so far they (mfgr) would NOT refund it. Only fix it. VERY RUDE CSR!!! I am awaiting email from the mfgr.

                This pushed two 8 ohm monitors with no problem. We used the RCA input for an ipod connection and a 1/4" input for a karaoke machine. You can also connect a USB flash drive and pull music from there, but it appears the songs must be .mp3, not mp4, and it won't read an ipod through the USB connection, just a flash drive.

                  I use the PMX402M in my practice room. It powers four mics through two 8 ohm speaker columns containing six eight inch speakers each. Once or twice a week some friends and I gather to jam and play the old stuff we used to do. I set the volumes, tones, equalizer and effects once and it works beautifully.

                    Good amp, works well and does exactly what it was advertised to do. It wont blow away a room of 500 people but that's not what its meant for.

                    Cons: The manual is a bit sparse, but luckily there isn't much to figure out.

                    For the price, this is a good value. I have had it a week, and have only tested it. Sound is fine for general PA work. Includes MP3 player. To keep the price point, the manufacturer used inexpensive connectors -- for example the XLR3 female balanced mic inputs lack a spring latch lock.
