Lepai 4x45W Mini Amplifier with Remote USB MP3 Media Card FM
Lepai 4x45W Mini Amplifier with Remote USB MP3 Media Card FM is rated 3.68 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features, but......Nice little amp, with a lot of features, but has a fairly loud hum when driven anywhere near full power. A little bit disappointing, frankly.
Date published: 2014-04-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just an Okay AmpI felt like the quality of sound that was coming from this amp was just okay. I've worked with smaller ones that put out around the same power that sound nicer. Really though its not something easily distinguished to an untrained ear. I think this is a good amp for the price. I know its not my enclosure because I have a better amp that I test and compare with.One thing that I found when I was experimenting with the amp was that it is a 4-channel amp but it works like a mono amp that can have 4 speakers attached. I didn't really know this but it probably said this in the product description and I didn't pay attention to that.The thing that I think is cool about this little amplifier is the usb port, sd card slot and the radio. The radio antenna that came with the amplifier was not that good, but I made a longer one and it works perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Surprised!Never thought PE would offer such piece of j!I have always had great service, value and product from PE.Was looking for a compact FM tuner/amp for a small room running 2 small speakers - 3 1/2 mid-W x 3/4 tweeter.Very difficult to tune - op manual only in Chinese-pops and crackles in volume control - used dipole ant (T) and still tough to bring in a station in suburbs of Chicago!. Turning up volume past 1/2 seemed to fatigue this POJ.Someone must have had a hangover when they selected this POJ for PE!!Maybe the same person who wrote, "All-in-one amplifiers simply don't get any better than this!"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Overall - Really Bad Tuner and not very Loud!I now have the Lepai 4x45W Mini Amplifier with Remote USB MP3 SD FM (from PE!)...for the most part Im very impressed...just not exactly wowed by the tuner (its not good at all-even with a new upgraded atenna) or the loudness (but that was expected)...However, the unit overall gifts my very high opinion...I use in my living room in place of an older receiver that died...I have running through the amp of that old receiver, so the loudness factor is taken care of...if I want to use a tuner, I have an Internet accessible DVD player as an input to the new Lepai amp (so it's just a matter of accessing an online radio station and playing it through a different mode on the Lepai)...on the up side (and making up for its shortcomings) the remote works really well along with the USB and the SD ports...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Better off with the TA-2020+This little amp is powering some outdoor speakers, and its okay, I guess. Not much power, but sufficient for my small yard, so don't expect to blast the neighborhood. That was to be expected.The biggest letdown is the crummy FM tuner. I only skimmed the other reviews that complained about it, and didn't realize how horrible it really is. I plugged a longer coax cable into the antennae input, and it didn't really help — FM radio all sounds like AM radio, muffled, compressed, in a can. Now, if I literally hold the coax antennae cable in my hand, the sound changes completely, and becomes crystal clear and louder, with more depth and breadth. But I can't hold the thing the entire time I want to listen to the radio. So I've succumbed to just plugging it in to my iPod/laptop etc. and using internet radio streams from the FM stations I want to hear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very niceI'm a total newbe but this does everything I wanted it to do. I hooked 4 visaton 2133 outdoor speakers to it and put everything in a KD birch tower cabinet and set a Seeburg WB1 wallbox on top and hooked it all to a I-Pod for a jukebox.Works great!

Lepai 4x45W Mini Amplifier with Remote USB MP3 Media Card FM

Is there a better FM antenna available that will work with this amp?

All I have been able to find have either fork terminal connections or a coax typel cable connector. RCA doesn't seem to be standard for FM antennas. The short piece of wire included with the amp is useless for picking up stations. The tuner just keeps scanning and never finds any stations, not even local stations.
Asked by: Rob Gordon
You *could* put an RCA plug on a longer length of spare wire, and route that to get the best signal possible. It wont be the best antenna ever, but it would be better than the short wire they include

Can i use 8D cell batterys to run this unit?

I have this Amp connected to a Speaker box-And i use it as a boom box--Its unreal how great it sounds!! I wanted to use it portable without the plug--I was thinking about hooking up 8 d batterys-(12) volts to the unit--Just wondering how long they would last?
Asked by: stormman62
A more popular choice for this type of application would be an SLA battery. I've linked a couple below for your reference. "Ah" refers to Ampere Hours, a higher value indicates that the battery will deliver power for a longer period of time between charges.
Answered by: RussR
Date published: 2012-06-07

So I have this amplifier running 4 Dayton Audio DAEX25 Sound Exciters. I would like to make a portable radio using a small SLA battery.

How long at max volume would I expect to get out of a 12ah battery? Would this unit actually draw the 5 amps that it is rated for?
Asked by: JamminJake
Well depending on the volume and the type of music you listen to, you would get a variable play time from 2-6 hours; 2 hours being heavy bass at full volume and 6 being a moderate volume rock or pop with moderate bass. The lower the volume and the less bass, the longer you have. 12ah sure is a hefty sla, so expect a while though. And just my two cents, but I wouldn't be using tactile transducers for this project only because they are nutorious for having a low output unless attached to very large thin surfaces, like the inside of a hollow core vaneer door or a large sheet of 1/32" steel, and the sound isn't always the best either. I would just splurge on two pair of dayton shelf speakers at a mere $30 a pair. But either way, you should consider using a 60 hz high pass so you don't waste amps on hard to reproduce frequencies while outdoors. What ever you choose, best of luck on the project! Be sure to add the project schematic to PE's projects section.

Is there a 3.5mm jack audio input because I'm confused about the "MP3"? And what is the RCA Audio Output for since it has outputs for to 4 speakers?

Asked by: boMBus10
There is not a 3.5 mm input on this amplifier, but one could use a stereo 3.5 mm male plug to stereo RCA male adapter to allow connection of iPods, MP3 players, smartphones, or computers. I have listed one below for quick reference.This amplifier has a built-in MP3 decoder along with USB and SD/MMC card input. What this allows for is storing your songs in MP3 format on a storage device (such as a USB thumbdrive, SD card, or MMC card) for direct decoding and playback through the amplifier without the need of any other device.The RCA audio pass-through output is paralleled to the input (meaning that the signal that you provide to the input is the same as the output) and allows for the connection of additional amplifiers or direct connection to a subwoofer with a built-in amplifier that has RCA input.
