Rated 4 out of 5 by from I couldn't build this myself for less money!Don't let some of the other reviews dissuade you - for under $10 this little amp is a bargain. Forget about output power, tone control quality etc. Just hook up whatever old "wall wart" style supply you have lying around, a source of music and enjoy the sound!I'm running mine off a 9V 2A "switching" style wall wart, I've got it hooked up to my computer's sound card and a pair of old RS Minimus 7 AV speakers. It fills my garage shop with sound, and if I accidentally run over it with the car (or need an extra wheel chock) no worries - just buy another one! Yes - running on 9V it tends to distort when pushed really hard but its a sub ten dollar amp!My only con is the annoying LED color ring around the volume knob. It changes color constantly and in no relation to the music. I solved the problem by taking the back off the amp and clipping one of the LED leads with a long wire snipper.This amp is great to put sound anywhere you need it - remember its about the music and you don't need a super expensive high end system to enjoy music!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I expectedI needed an amp for Mp3 player in kitchen so i could take off the headphones. Volume and sound are good I don't think I could have got anything better for this price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little ampI bought this to power a stereo in ceiling speaker for my front porch. The combination works well together. My only complaint about the amp is that the backlight for the knobs changes colors on its own. Very distracting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Background musicI bought one of these little amplifiers on a whim because I'm a doctor and needed a small amp to drive a couple of speakers for my reception area. This amp is cheap and did a great job. I don't really understand these other reviews that act like their 10 dollars shluld buy them an amp that has the specs of more expensive amps. It's ten bucks!!! I think it's great.
