With this connected to an okay set of old-as-heck monitors and an old passive sub I found in the basement—this is seems like a great bang for the buck. Almost two month in, and I love it.
It slaves to the TV and gets a lot of use as a Bluetooth. Plenty of power for my average living room if I feel like blowing it up. Sure, could probably drop a buncha money somewhere else, but this didn’t cost much for the power.
Haven’t noticed any distortion or odd sound qualities. Bad stereos annoy me, and I haven’t any complaints yet.
Oh and it’s tiny!
Wish it had a remote.
I purchased the Dayton Audio DTA-2.1 to replace my 15 year old, tired, and partied out Cambridge SoundWorks Model 12 Mick Fleetwood Signature Series 2.1 amp. The DTA Amp is amazing. The amp is half the size, produces no heat, and comes with a crystal clear long range on-board BlueTooth. The clarity, stereo separation, and overall tone meets or exceeds the CSE 2.1 amp. The DTA has plenty of power. Note: I also tried 2 other popular class D 2.1 amps. They both fell way short in either power, tone, and lack of distortion. The DTA amp coupled with the CSW satellite speakers and the sub woofer in the carry case will continue to blow your flip-flops off for the 2020 beach season and beyond. :)
Needed an amp to drive a pair of B&W 600's but also liked the added bluetooth input for mobile devices. Currently using a vintage Teac cassette deck, new Fluance RT81 turntable and a Schiit DAC/Preamp as sources. Sound is great from all sources and the in line DAC's (phone preamp into Mac and Schiit DAC out) produce a crisp and hearty sound into my vintage B&W speakers. The only thing to get used to with this amp is that the power and source selection is done via the same button.
I returned it because: - Subwoofer channel did not work. -Thought it has RCA output (although maybe I didn't look at the picture well enough) -Holes for speaker wire horizontal; so hard to get your wire and fingers in there. If vertical it would have been easier.
Using this power amp for my sim racing pc powering Martin Logan motion 20s floor speakers. Power amp is crisp and clear. Thank you for adding Bluetooth. I can pair it with my iPhone and play Spotify music. It’s a very good power amp. Save me from buying a stereo receiver. Thank you!
Bought this to use with a bass shaker so I can't comment on the sound quality, however the built is great and the size is just compact and easy to hide which is good for me. I placed it under my couch and dials are all easily accessible. Suitable for both 110 or 240v users as the adaptor is a universal one. Only the plug head might not fit some but that you can fix using a cheap 1 dollar adapter head.
no remote control on this device i received. poping when power pluged in. Sound was good. Class D amps like this will not be grounded and pop
I brought this amp to power my Polk Atrium outdoor subwoofer and speakers. I needed something small in size yet powerful and this amp fits the bid. The sound is great it has subwoofer connections and works great with my passive sub. The blue tooth works great and I am able to have the amp inside my kitchen and it stays connected while I am outback on my patio. The only thing it is missing is an remote but thats not a deal breaker. I highly recommend this amp!
I have a Paradigm CT and the amplifier broke. I really love the speaker and I don’t wanna throw or sell it. I decided to change the amp. I was considering to SMSL AD18 or this one. Never regret my choice. I could reuse the subwoofer that it came with the system! The only cons that I have with the Dayton compare to SMSL is that it didn’t came with a USB dac and headphone output. But I really don’t wanna waste the sub from paradigm.
