AudioSource AMP100 2-Ch Source Switching Power Amplifier
AudioSource AMP100 2-Ch Source Switching Power Amplifier is rated 4.3919 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, simple amplifierI bought this to amplify audio from a new 65" flat screen TV to external speakers. It functions as advertised and the auto on/off is 'just the ticket'. Volume will not go quite as loud as I expected but the audio is much clearer. This may be a 'speaker size issue' but the improvement over the TV speakers is good. If it had an IR remote,........I'd give it 5 stars. It does what I bought it for just fine.

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.

AudioSource AMP100 2-Ch Source Switching Power Amplifier

we have speakers outside that run to the same place as the wall and ceiling speakers for the home theater.  Can you use this as a zone 2 output source by connecting it to the main receiver and not worry about our movies playing outside when zone 2 is off?

Asked by: jrhbailey
Yes this is a great amplifier for that application. As long as zone 2 is off it will not be playing anything outside.

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.
