AudioSource AMP100 2-Ch Source Switching Power Amplifier
AudioSource AMP100 2-Ch Source Switching Power Amplifier is rated 4.3889 out of 5 by 72.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for dorm useThis was purchased to set up a dorm room stereo system using definitive technology 350 speakers and a xantech bdx tt blue tooth receiver. ( bluetooth output is 20 to 20k hz +/- 3 db and I believe up to 5 different devices can be stored in the xantech to allow room mates to alter their audio sources)I could not be more pleased with the amp's floor noise ( it is silent, dead silent) , dynamics and sound stage. Clipping? None. Noise in balance/volume inputs? None.Binder posts for the speaker wire are of good quality with firm gripping.Decibel output is adequate for the dorm room and louder than the hall monitor will likely allow ( a true 50 watts/channel, with dynamic headroom present).Do try to use a non compressed format such as WAV or AIFF or at least a lossless format such as FLAC to optimize the sound quality and optimize your enjoyment of digitally recorded music.Internet radio sounds great if the station does not go cheap on their bit rate, i.e.128 kbit/s or better.Kindly refer to other reviews for the unit's idiosynchrasies.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Mixed BagI purchased the AudioSource Amp for my secondary 2-channel system. It is vintage with DCM Time Frame 600 speakers, an Advent 300 (used as a preamp) and a terrific Rotel multi-disc CD. The additional power was noticeable and the general build quality was excellent, for the price. Sonically, the AudioSource's bass was not as well defined, being a bit boomy at times. The highs exhibited more solid state sharpness than I prefer with these speakers. Functionally, the only negative is the speaker binding posts. I use custom-made very heavy gauge bare wire tinned with silver solder. When I opened the binding posts all the way it was quite impossible to close them: they seemed locked in place. I was forced to use needle nose pliers to unlock them and then I could tighten them down by hand.If you are purchasing this unit for a more modern system, and plan to use banana plugs for the speaker connection, then I think this would be a fine purchase, especially for the price. I am, however, returning mine to Parts Express.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good 2-Ch Amp for the MoneyFolks, for the money and basic features. this amp is very hard to beat, unless you build your own. Buy it. It works as advertised.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Audio Source Amp-100I bought this amplifier to power my aura pro bass shaker transducers and so far, they work great together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great no nonsense ampNot a very powerful amp, but great clean sound, high quality construction (in particular the quality of the case and rotary knobs are surprisingly good), and all the right features for a simple amp. Even when paired up with my fancy NHT speakers the sound of this amp was impressive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AudioSource AMP100This 2 channel amp is a good performer considering it's modest price. It has been around for a while-I own more than one and have not had any issues. They run fairly cool. You can't engage speakers A and B simultaneously but the output of this amp doesn't warrant that anyhow. One curious thing about the dual banana jack speaker outputs-the left channel is on the right side of the row & the right is on the left--just mentioning it. This is not a high power amp, but it is a good value nontheless--pick up one or two while they are still available.

AudioSource AMP100 2-Ch Source Switching Power Amplifier

Can I run two pair of 8 ohm speakers wired in Parallel for left and right, so that each (L&R) is seeing a 4 ohm load, on the B channel only. Channel A runs a separate pair of 8 ohm speakers.

Asked by: Jason9599
The load on both A and B channels cannot dip below 4 ohms since these outputs are paralleled together in the amplifier.

How does the amp switch between inputs 1 and 2? Does the auto-on system do that?

Asked by: BobBielecki
The inputs on this amplifier are input sensitive so they will automatically switch between both. Input 2 is what the amplifier defaults to if you are only using one input.
Answered by: MattP

How does the auto on feature work? Can I set it up to switch on when I turn my TV on?

Asked by: Capitaldub
The Auto-On feature senses an input signal and automatically turns the amplifier on. Once there is no signal present for 10-15 minutes it will shut off automatically as well.

Can I daisy chain 3 together using only line I/O's?

This is the plan. 3 amps daisy chained for full range and 2 sub BASH amps daisy chained with one source signal. So would I OUT from source to Audiosource(Amp-100) 1st line 2 IN, OUT line 2nd line 2. IN line 2, OUT line 2, 3rd IN line 2, OUT 1st BASH amp, OUT, IN 2nd BASH amp. So there would be 6 amplifiers in line or daisy chained with one source signal. The source OUT will be a Kenwood Basic C-2 stereo control amplifier. sorry for being confusing
Asked by: Vusstoppy
You can daisy chain 3 of these amplifiers together using the line out of amp #1 to line in amp #2 then out to amp #3--If I understand your question. Your Kenwood source signal should drive 3 amplifiers at line level. Just don't try to connect the speaker outs of one amp to another amp--there would be a conflict.

Will this amp run Cerwin vega d5's?

I have a 20 year old set of Cerwin Vega D5's from my university days. I am building a new house and was wondering if the audiosource amp 100 would have enough jam to run these big floor standing speakers?
Asked by: Comfyguy
This amp will technically drive them just fine but will likely be limited with overall output. I cannot say how loud they will be but it should be decent considering the sensitivity of the Cerwin Vegas.

good enough for multi-room?

I have a home with 4 pairs of speakers in different rooms (kitchen, bedroom, living room, and outdoors). They all have volume controls but the controls are not impedance matching. Would this amp be able to run a single stereo to all my speakers reliably if I install an impedance matching speaker selector? I won't be running things especially loud the music is just for background. I've looked at more expensive options (Russound x125) but wonder if that may be overkill... also considered installing impedance matching volume controls but those are minimum $20 x 4, which seems like it could be better spent on a capable amp or an impedance protection selector.
Asked by: troy2000
Yes this will work fine for that application as long as you have the impedance matching selector.
