    For the price this amp is great. Don't expect Crown quality or sound here. The amp has good power for a small area setting. It states 500 watts RMS per channel at 4 ohms but that is actually 300 watts RMS at 4 ohms. The specs might be off but for the price you cant go wrong. If you are looking to DJ at a large hall this is NOT the amp for you. If you are looking to DJ in a small room or hall this is the RIGHT choice for you especially if you are on a low budget. Hope this helps.

    Fan is noisy!

    No really. It has a very noisy fan. Otherwise seems OK for what you pay. I needed it for a home studio and the fan is just too noisy to even consider it. ...Read complete review

    No really. It has a very noisy fan. Otherwise seems OK for what you pay. I needed it for a home studio and the fan is just too noisy to even consider it. I had to send it back. It would work OK as monitor amp at a gig maybe as long as it wasn't close to any mic that could pick up the fan. Sound was good. Power rating was overstated but it drove a pair of 10" studio monitors just fine.

        I use this to power 2 Yorkville YX15's. I can turn the volume way up and the amp does not clip. I would suggest for anyone who needs a amp on a budget.

                the first unit received had one bad channel. exchange was good. second unit had 2 good channels, but looked a bit dented on the base metal. seems to work well and time will tell. for under $[$]it seems like a decent value. again, time will tell.

                            Fan is very loud. Amplifier works a little more than three months and left channel was dead. I switched cables and it's not my speaker nor my speakon cable but the amp itself was defective.

                            Hi, I use this product as a amp for my home sound system. It deliver enough power to drive my camber speakers. This amp offer a realistic stereo image.
                            The PTA 1000 is a good amp for the price.

                            The down side, the PTA 1000 is noisy and no output for headphones. To correct this problem i have add a speaker switch box with a headphone output.

                              I needed an inexpensive amplifier for a small PA. Fan is a little noisy, but not too bad. This amp is light and pretty well built for the money. Usable power is well below the high "bragging" wattages listed by the manufacturer, but if you need a solid 100W-200W amp for cheap, this is great choice.

                                    Comments about Pyle Pro PTA1000 Professional Stereo Power Amplifier (250W/Channel @ 8 Ohms):

                                    I'm using the PTA1000 to drive two old 8ohms 60W Bose speakers; the audio coming from my PC.

                                    I'm currently using the XLR inputs on the back of the amp and it sounds nice. Better than my Audiosource AMP-100.

                                    Because my PC soundcard has a 1/8" TRS output, I bought a wire converter from 1/8" TRS to dual mono 1/4" TS (mono), but didn't get any results. The spec of the PTA1000 says that the 1/4" inputs are TRS, so maybe that's why.

                                    Overall very satisfied. Quite affordable and looks professional.

                                    Bought one in the beginning for Stage monitors , but I was clipping just a little bit
                                    So I decided to buy another one and bridge them both mono. Now I have lots of
                                    (( head room )) , does the job for a fraction others would cost.

                                    This amp pumps no where near the watts it claims. My old 250W radio shack amplifier gives four times the power of this thing. Pyle is a joke, I can't understand how they're still in business!!! DO NOT BUY!

                                        Thei s a great amp for the money. We use this amp in our band to run our monitors and it sounds great.

                                          I use this amp for home use/dj/mixing it's not 250 watts per channel probably closer to 120 in my opinion but it works fine and for the price i think its still a really good value, no problems with it yet. I also have Crown CE1000 thats 275 per channel and it blows this thing away but it also costs more. Bottom line I would recommend it to someone looking for an economical 100-120 watt amp and I gave it 4 stars for the low price.

                                            For the price this amp is great. Don't expect Crown quality or sound here. The amp has good power for a small area setting. It states 500 watts RMS per channel at 4 ohms but that is actually 300 watts RMS at 4 ohms. The specs might be off but for the price you cant go wrong. If you are looking to DJ at a large hall this is NOT the amp for you. If you are looking to DJ in a small room or hall this is the RIGHT choice for you especially if you are on a low budget. Hope this helps.
