Kinter MA-500 4-Channel Mini Amplifier with Remote USB MP3 Media Card FM 4x30W
Kinter MA-500 4-Channel Mini Amplifier with Remote USB MP3 Media Card FM 4x30W is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Noise present all the time.Ok. so I took a flyer and bought this cheesy little amp hoping it would sound ok as a work bench radio/MP3 player. Hooked it up to a pair of Dayton 652's and it sounded great, but the FM reception was pretty noisy. Then I started to notice the high pitched cyclic whine coming from both speakers. Tried different power supplies to no avail. Then I noticed that the whine was cycling with the LEDs that lit up the volume and tone controls. Took the unit apart and cut out the LEDs, put some heat sink compound on the PA transistors and tightened up the antenna connection. Put the unit back together and "voila!" no more whine, FM reception is great now. Sound is really very good except for a very low [barely noticeable] motorboat ticking. But, with any volume at all you'll never notice it. So, with a little work I went from quite disappointed to quite happy with this product. I would recommend this product to someone who is not afraid to fix it up. Otherwise, pass on it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It has a problemI purchased this amp because it had all the features I needed. After installing it I find that it is plagued with AC type hum and other noises with the volume all the way down. I have tried many power supplies but no luck. The problem exists even when run on battery with no AC in the area. Very disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Probably good ampI have not found a power supply that does not cause 60 hz noise through speakers,my fault for not reading that it does not come with power supply,I have never had any bad product from parts Express,I think they should at least give you the part number for the correct power supply.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Should have in info and specsThis came with no power cord/supply. I did not see anywhere where it said "NO POWER CORD". I called and they told me it does NOT come withcord. Sent it back, at my expense, and got an email saying I was getting what looked like a full refund.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for.Product operates as advertised, but read the description closer and you will see the power supply is sold separately which adds to the cost of the unit. It looks like a well built solid amplifier radio in the photos, but it sounds like tinny garbage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works as expected, but......Works as expected, but a L-R and F-R balance control is needed.

Are there any pictures of any type of installs whether in a vehicle or home on these units?  I'm trying to figure out how I could find a use for one.  

Asked by: dustin88

does the display show the FM station?

Do the vol +/- keys on the remote also control the AUX volume? On some amps like Lepai A68, the remote only controls FM & USB vols. I want to use this with a TV with fixed line level output, without touching the amp knobs.

Asked by: aporter
Yes the volume controls on the remote will control all inputs.

What kind of power adapter is needed for car operation

Asked by: tigsgirls
There is no adapter required for a car application, you just need to supply 12 volts to the amp from a power source in the vehicle. You can use a pig tail like below for this.http://www.parts-express.com/parts-express-21mm-x-55mm-x-112mm-dc-plug-with-6-ft-cord--090-489

Random play?  Does it remember where you were on the flash drive when you turned it off?  Do songs need to be in the root, or can they be organized into folders?  Can you hop directly to a folder or song #?

Asked by: Eric Jan Miller
The USB / SD/MMC audio files should be in raw form without folders.
