A good little amplifier with excellent reviews, ideal if you have a spare pair of speakers collecting dust at home.
This deal was £17 with prime membership when I posted it yesterday but the price keeps dropping down to £16 every so often.
I use mine connected to my tv for much better sound than the £140 Yamaha soundbar I used to own.
According to camelcamelcamel the price very rarely goes this low.

Great price - bought one around the £22 mark just a few weeks ago.
For some reason it checks out at £16. Have one but bought another. Bargain.

Same here, just dropped to £16!
Does it come with a PSU?

Does it come with a PSU?


The one I got a few weeks ago did, yes. If you do a bit of research there are some people warning that the PSU is a bit crap and underpowered, but I've had no problems so far.
I have this one, it's a very good sounding amp
Mod
Got one of these in the shed connected to a couple of bookshelf speakers along with a chromecast audio. Get a great sound off it!
Does it have much treble boost? I need something to hear the dialogue better - everything seems to be bass heavy

If it's for TV audio then a Soundbar or soundbase with audio enhancing technology might be better, but it does have pretty good range on the bass and treble.

What a joker you obviously are!!!! Yes I am deaf - I already have NHS hearing aids thank you but am asking a legitimate question to try to help my situation. Taking the mick of someone with a hearing loss is really low maybe someday you will lose your hearing. Shame on you

Have tried soundbase and bars but they have set eq - need something with variable tone controls wish they did graphic equalisers these days.
I have 3 of these all connected to Amazon echo dots and ceiling speakers.. sound is fine, there is a blue light that stays constantly on around the volume knob, this can be disconnected if your willing to open the amp , but I actually like it.... I keep it at the highest level it can go without distortion of sound when at max and control volumes with Alexa... This along with echo has been one of the best multi room sound systems for a fraction of the price compared to competitors offering multi room..

This is showing as 16 now which is cheapest IV seen it. Must be selling quick back to 20 now

Pardon?
I use with a Chromecast, so the phone/tablet/pc/or voice on google will do the volume, skip tracks ect.

I used these." Pyle PDIC61RDSL " They were on offer a while back for 17 I think I got them at..... Truthfully... Sound is amazing from it all. There are alot better speakers out there, but I was going for the cheapest as I was a bit sceptical of the amp actually producing anything that great...
Edited by: "trilock" 14th Sep 2017
I think if I remember reading, it's something to do with chipset inside it. The original company making them closed and another firm bought them but used their own chipset inside it... Something along that lines

i think thats what i used aswell, 6.5" look really good and sound really good, i also used a pyle 6.5" marine speaker in the bathroom, doesnt look as good or sound quite as good but its fully plastic so no rusty grills.

I've had one for a while, and it came with a 12V 3A Lepy-branded wall wart which seems to be quite efficient (i.e not noticeably warm when on standby). This is 36W, so given the efficiency of the amplifier of around 80% would allow about 14W per channel. But with 8 ohm speakers I doubt you'd get more than that anyway.

If you'd said you were deaf upfront you'd have every right to be upset, as you didn't and what you did say wouldn't imply you were to the majority then it was just unfortunate and you need a sense of humour.

Shame on you!
I've had the 2020 version of this, purchased back when it was about £10. Do yourself a favour and pay extra for the SMSL version. You will notice the difference in the sound. The SMSL version has stronger bass and overall improved sound.

I'd love to see evidence or even a scientifically-believable explanation for that.
It's expired now for some reason... 20quid for me, looks like a bargain me thinks.

I believe the smsl has better components inside so if you want a scientific explanation then that could be it. It has been years since I looked into the reasons for the better sound but I'm sure there are some old reviews out there that will tell you more.

Yes quite possibly - if you haven't been told what you're listening to and how much it has cost. It's simply the power of suggestion, as used by snake-oil salesmen since the year dot. With hifi there is the additional complication of the pseudo-scientific nonsense that is often employed to talk up products.

When you get to the realms of higher end stuff I hear what you are saying.
But there is a baseline for decent sound and I very much doubt this competes with a decent basic HiFi when used with decent entry level speakers.
If you are just going to use it in a shed with PC speakers then I doubt you'd notice a differene.

A "baseline for decent sound"? "Entry-level speakers"? The hifi BS is beginning to flow thick and fast, so I'll withdraw at this point.

You were never really in the discussion, just showing your reverse snobbery badge.
If you are happy with your £30 PC speakers then good for you.
I'm happy with my basic HiFi which was less than £200 and miles better.

Not sure about deaf, probably hearing impaired in which case hearing aids would work better than a £20 amplifier cobbled with some speakers. Get that chip off your shoulder too, probably what's preventing you from getting on with it!
PMSL.
Ok I'm not jumping in to start an argument, I'm going to try and give example of sound... I have a friend who shall remain anonymous who owns a guest house. This guest house he has kitted out with complete Sonos... Now before we compare. Sonos wins in sound but not price. Anyways..... He has everything you can think of Sonos wise for this guest house and it sounds amazing.. but ........ In his main home after hearing my setup he asked me to install this setup . . For whatever reason he and I have came to the conclusion that this is great for sound Vs money. Hope this helps someone who stumbles upon this sometime
I'm a bit late to the party, but does anyone know if something like this exists that can be controlled (power & volume) via WiFi? Trying to do piped music on a shoestring, plugging a a chromecast & Bluetooth dongle in the back.
