Lepai LP-A68 Digital 2x15W Mini Amplifier with Remote USB MP3 Media Card FM
Lepai LP-A68 Digital 2x15W Mini Amplifier with Remote USB MP3 Media Card FM is rated 3.9474 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for Flat TV sound improvbement!Finally my TV sound can match up to the picture. I have connected this amp from my Samsung flat screen TV ear phone jack and it sounds great. Plenty of volume from this amp without distortion. Using the earphone jack allows me to control the volume remotely by my TV remote. Using the RCA input jack, and the digital optical TV output requires I use my D to A converter, my TV does not control the volume this way neither does the remote control from this amplifier. Power on and off does work from the amp remote. Hope I do not have a damaged unit given the lack of volume control from the remote when the RCA jacks are used. O

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for background musicI purchased this amp to use in my preschool classroom as I play a large variety of music during the day. I wanted to have something to play MP3's on and be able to quickly change songs. The quality of sound is fine for what I'm using it for; I can see this unit excelling at being used for background music in the house or even a small business hooked up to a set of bookshelf speakers. It will play the songs on a SD card or jump drive all day long.Here is how I handled the music: I made a list of probably 40-50 songs numbered 1-50 as the name and put it on a SD card. The songs do play in order, but number 1 on my list isn't number 1 when I press the "1" on the direct entry keypad on the remote. So I get around this by listening to whatever song plays when I hit the play button, and adding or subtracting the number of songs on the list I printed out and pressing the "<" or ">" buttons that many times until I get to the song I want. It's a bit of work but it's not so bad. I don't know why I expected the player to recognize song number "1" as the first one, it's not a computer and doesn't work that way, but I didn't think that far ahead I guess when setting my SD card up.Well, a member on Tech Talk mentioned to me that I might try taking all the songs off the SD card and putting them all back on after reformatting the card which would hopefully make the first song on my card the #1 song so my numbered list of songs would match the list I had typed out on paper. I haven't given this a try yet, but plan to. I will report back with the results.Overall, this is a good unit. The sound is not as good as the Lepai 2020 amp that I have purchased 8-10 of in the past few years, that thing is kind of amazing, but it is fine for the classroom playing toddler songs. The fact that it also plays FM is kind of cool to. I can get a few stations in and it sounds pretty decent, better than expected. Quality of the MP3 songs is very nice.For the price, it's really a bargain I think for all that it does. The remote works across the classroom 25 feet away, and the unit is light enough that you can mount it anywhere. I made a small shelf which I screwed right into my bulletin board and then screwed the amp to using small self-tapping screws. I can press the buttons this way without having to hold the amp with my other hand -- it is very light.I would buy this again if I needed an all-in-one amp/mp3 player in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ALL features work wellHave 2 of these 6mos and 1 45W x 4 and 1 2.1 chan. All work very well and have plenty of power even with 8ohm speaker sets. Will play MP3 and wave from flash drives SD cards and MP3 players. I use all these and more on a whole house distributiton (line level) network (8 locations at present) These are not equal to the true audiophile systems on the network, but mighty close. An issue is setting the volume on the unit to allow the remote to have "room" to be adjusteed to higher volume levels. The master volume on the unit limits the level. If powered off by remote, it must be powered up with the remote. I plan to buy many more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little Amp with many play back featuresThis amp has provided my R&D project to reach higher levels of achievement. Despite the power output is only 15W per channel the audio is clear and with proper tuning provides an all around solid sound. I was certainly surprised from it's performance considering it's a digital amp.I am operating Dayton Audio's, Audio exciters (Dayton Audio DAEX58FP) with this amp and it has met my expectations with continuing my project with this amp. The amp also has stellar audio play back options either from a standard SD card or a USB stick. It also has RCA inputs, which I haven't tried yet. This gives a simple way of providing extra options in on the go music capability. The FM radio tuning needs work, but I am not using it for FM reception or audio so I can't comment fully on that.The buttons feel good and are not loose as they seem to look cheap in the picture. The nobs are smooth and give good resolution in tuning. They don't feel loose or sloppy compared to the price. I was pleasantly surprised in the quality of the face of this amp. For a low budget amp it is defiantly worth the money for the use with memory type of music. The operations manual is completely written in Chinese and useless for anything that would require learning. As the front buttons are pretty much self explanatory so the manual isn't really needed.My use of the amp has been extensive since I received it. Playing music at full volume for 6 hours gives a slight raise in housing temperature, but not hot. Which tells me that it is efficient in heat dissipation and cooling. It even comes with an IR remote that works even at 25 feet. I can't complain about that.This amp will be my choice for my production project to come in the next few months. Thanks PE for distributing this great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The 21st Century Integrated AmpAs technology evolves, we lump features together, trying out various combinations in the eternal search for the best balance between value, flexibility, reliability and ease of use. This inexpensive and innovative unit yields tremendous bang for tiny bucks. By adding a cigarette-lighter power adapter, a couple of Outdoor-proof speakers and some zip cord, I quickly and inexpensively had a very flexible and usable music system for camping.I would like to have seen a pair of ΒΌ" TS jacks for the speakers, and an up-rated unit would have an LCD to identify the input in-use and to show what track is being played from the USB, but this thing is amazing for the price.

Would it hurt the amp to wire two 8 ohm speakers into a 4 ohm load (Dayton 2-1/2" full range) to run off one channel while running a single 4 ohm speaker (Dayton 4" mid woofer) off the other channel?

Asked by: wesleywells1
It will not hurt the amplifier, no.

Does this amplifier have line out?

Asked by: JonC
No, this amp has many features, including several inputs. There are,however, only one pair of outputs and those are 4-8ohm speaker jacks.I assume you want to use this unit as a head unit and plug it into another amp or sound system. There used to be an adapter for car stereo output to line impedance to allow connection to an amp, but a very quick search online came up empty. There also used to be amps that input speaker level signals and boosted the wattage. I don't know if that would do what you need. Personally, I think you'd be better looking for a different unit. I do have a friend that used a car head unit with similar features and hooked it to his home amp. I would not call the results audiophile quality but it did sound good.

Could I power this amp with batteries?

I am trying to build a portable iPod speaker system. This would do the trick, however, I am trying to use some rechargeable batteries in series to power it to make it completely portable. I may be getting in over my head. Any ideas?
Asked by: Boyfromthenorth
Yes, as long as the sum voltage is a stable 12 volts DC it will work. 8 cells add to the correct voltage but it won't last long on a charge. You could parallel groups of 8 but if going to the cost and weight of that many batteries, look at PE's lead sealed batteries. They will last longer. Just balance the amp hours against the weight( how much are you carrying this device). Figure an approximate 2amp per hour draw times the time of use per charge. I am working on a similiar project and will use these lead sealed batteries. Have fun.

Is This a Class T Amp or Class A/D? If Class T, what is the amp chip used?

Asked by: HK Loo
Since the catalog page does not specify the class or chipset, I would guess it is held proprietary by the manufacturer. Today a lot of pre/power amp chips are available for use in various audio products. At this price point few can quality compare. Read the reviews, I think at 2 x 15 watts it is hard to beat.

Does it play wma files or only mp3? any other formats?

Asked by: bandera blanca
This unit will decode & play mp3 files but does not state it will play wave files. Windows media files are encoded like waves and mp3 players will handle them. I would call PE to make sure.The audio inputs will play your music from the headphone output of your player.
