Comments/Description

Decent sound, very light weight, inexpensive. With given power supply, amp begins to distort at higher volumes, will turn off after cranking the volume @ 3/4 of the way. (The mods linked below are supposed to fix this.) Actual power output not as listed, but mod may help this as well.

Spring loaded clips only for speaker connections are not as stable as posts or banana plug connectors, and can wear out over time with constant connecting/reconnecting. Can pop out, but are easily fixed.

1-year warranty.

Matching Equipment

Pairs well with most low powered exciters.

Comparisons

Comparable to the Dayton-DTA-1 in terms of size, power, weight, and sound. Has RCA inputs, which the DTA-1 lacks, but does not have the DTA-1's ability to run on batteries.
