Pyle Pro PCAU22 overview

  • 1Description

In this age of 500 and 1000 Watt stereo amplifiers it's easy to forget that there are still plenty of uses for a small 40 watt per channel amplifier like the Pyle Pro PCAU22 Mini 40 Watt x 2 Stereo Power Amplifier w/ USB Input.

You can use it to fill your kitchen, den, bedroom or computer desk with music from your Walkman or MP3 player via its front-panel USB input to a pair of desktop speakers.

And it works just as well to amplify the weak audio your netbook or notebook's speakers put out. Again, just feed the audio into the PCAU22 via the USB input or use a mini jack to RCA L/R pair cable (available separately) to connect you computer to the PCAU22.

In both scenarios, just add a modest pair of speakers and hook them up to the back wire-capture terminals and you've got audio loud enough to dance to.

    Pyle Pro PCAU22 reviews

    PCAU22 Mini 40 Watt x 2 Stereo Power Amplifier w/ USB Input is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, if not great. Affordable I purchased this product specifically so that I may use a couple of neglected Sony bookshelf speakers I had not used for years with my iPod Classic. In this respect, the amplifier works well enough and allows me to power these speakers when connected to an iPod. However, there is a bit of a hum or buzz that comes through the speaker. With the music turned up a bit, it is not noticeable and I suppose I can live with it. Various troubleshooting strategies failed to identify or remedy the buzz. I am assuming that given the price of the unit, I should probably be completely satisfied. However, with the slight buzz, I drop the rating one star at least.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just exactly what I want if I could get one that worked I was very enthused about finding this item, because it had everything I wanted, simple design, adequate output, USB feed, good construction and good price. The only thing was that it wouldn't work. The USB would only work for about ten minutes at the most, even with trying all kinds of alternatives, but it did function very well as just an amplifier with line-in feed. B&H immediately sent me the stuff to return it for a replacement as I wanted. When it came, that one worked fine for just a little over ten minutes on the USB and from then on just for erratic times, like a few seconds to several minutes, but then would cut out. I decided to keep the unit just as an amplifier for the line-in function, partly because this simple function was all I really needed in view of the price. However, the unit started being a little noisy and then proceeded to get quite hot and smokey smelling. I talked to B&H again, and they recommended I return that one and maybe look into another brand, because they had problems with Pyle. If I could be convinced that they were finally making a reliable product, I would gladly get another; but not for a while.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from seemed like a solution for event music Purchased this with the intent on only using it for USB background music playback. We loaded a 32gb drive and started playback with no issues, but before we were going to set this out on the floor; figured we'd give it a hard test, by playing the music in the office for a week. We endured the music for about 4-5 days, before the Pyle refused to play it anymore. Tried powering off and on, disconnecting/reconnecting, inserting and pulling out the flash drive. Nothing. The LED wouldn't even light up anymore. The USB feature was fried after just a few days of continuous playback. If you plan on using this for 1-2 hours a day: it might work for a good long time, however for pro use... no way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice, simple amp for low-power use I use my computer to edit audio recordings of live performances, so I require full-range and faithful sound reproduction but don't need a lot of power because I'm sitting 4 ft. away from both speakers. I bought this amp to deliver my computer's analog line output to a pair of high-end speakers, and it's PERFECT for this. It also has aux. USB and analog line inputs on the front panel for use with a personal music player (iPod, generic MP3 player or whatever).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, Simple, Affordable, Powerful I used this to amplify two outside speakers on my father-in-laws patio. He wanted to be able to listen to commercial free radio without buying a lot of stuff. This allowed me to purchase a QAM tuner, set the channel to his favorite station and now all he has to do is flip the switch on this amp and he's all set. He is not a technical personal and audio/video gear intimidiate him and this was perfect. I plan to purchase another one for myself.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from what I wanted and it does the job wanted a small space amp for my small needs and this one fits the need. Works very well and presents no problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value for the Price I am extremely pleased with the sound, construction, appearance and overall quality of the PCAU22 Audio Amplifier. We purchased it to drive 2 patio speakers which it does with amazing sound quality. While it may not be sized for a block party, it is absolutely perfect for background music while visiting with friends but is also able to drive enough volume to be heard all over our sizable back yard. Overall, an excellent purchase for our application and the price couldn't be better! It is not a full featured amp, but does the job I want.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, inexpensive amp for general use. I needed a desktop amp to drive my computer speakers. Be aware that this amp requires 4 ohm speakers, mine were 8 ohm. The instructions with the amp said you could parallel two 8 ohm speakers to get the required 4 ohms. This requires having four 8 ohm speakers of course. After paralleling the necessary speakers there was a low, but noticeable hum coming from the amp. It is a little irritating but can live with it. I would suggest that you don't try and use this amp for any high fidelity applications.
