      Comments about American Audio PPA-210 Portable Sound System:

      I use this as a ceremony sound system, and it is up to the job. Build quality is on the lower end (I wonder when the speakers will no longer snap into the center unit) but included mic and cables make it a good value. This unit is light enough for a guy to carry it, and the wheels and handles make rolling it convenient, although the wheels are close to each other making it a little tricky to steer if you're carrying other gear. Sound quality is good but not great. It's easy enough to use that I could rent it out to someone with no audio experience with just a few minutes of instruction to use in an event information booth. Very versatile with multiple channels, mp3 player input and playing from USB jump drive, this puppy can do a lot. Haven't had to turn it up very high, plenty of power for how I've used it. Mounting on stands didn't inspire much confidence as the pole mount adapters feel a little cheap. Once they're on stands they seem alright since they're so light- so far I have had no problems. A coat of heavy duty paint may make these look a little more pro, but probably isn't necessary.
      Overall, a good product.

        I am from Ontario Canada. I am retired and play at a lot of homes for the elderly and out door functions. I have tried out many PA systems but this unit is the best buy for your buck. The quality is excellent and the effect are fantastic for such a small unit. Good engineering, and great versatility. I don't have to drag along my huge PA system anymore.

            Comments about American Audio PPA-210 Portable Sound System:

            We really like this thing! My wife plugs her ipod into it and practices her singing, our karaoke machine just isn't loud enough for her to hear well. I also have a restaurant and we occasionally have acoustic musicians plug in out on our large patio outside. I purchased the Fender 150 first but we could not plug in all our stuff. With this we can plug in my electric drums, 2+ mics, ipod, keyboard, karaoke machine and the neighbors cat. Very flexible with hookups, it will take me a while to learn everything it has! This thing is a blast with kids and sounds great for listening to performers. Like the EQ too. It will crank if ya need it. I would not pass this up because of the other "cord" and "speaker adapter" reviews on B&H! Can't beat it for the price!

            Comments about American Audio PPA-210 Portable Sound System:

            This system blew me away at a local pro-audio music dealer's store. So I purchased this PA system. It has a lot of adjustments for fine tuning the music or vocals. I enjoy the portablility of this system,easy to load/unload. It is around 60 lbs. Set-up is easy and quick. However, I am not a fan of the speaker stand adapters that are included with the PA system. These adapters attach to the bottom of the speakers. I am hoping the next updated system will have pre-installed ports in the speakers like all of their competition.

                  Well I'm sure the product quality is just dandy, but its quite a shame how lame the company is. After spending the [$] on this, I opened the box and there were NO cables. I couldn't even plus it in. I called American DJ and they sent me some cables, but they were the wrong ones! I was sent an email asking what cables I needed and they didn't even know their own product well enough to send the corresponding cables!!!

                  Comments about American Audio PPA-210 Portable Sound System:

                  I was looking for a portable system that would allow me to have multiple inputs including a mic/wireless mic and background/presentation music.

                  The PPA-210 did all of that easily and had the added benefit of the USB drive input--a huge time saver!

                  There are quite a few knobs, so it does require a little training for the average user, but that's because it's so flexible!
