Pyle PCA1 Mini 2x15W Stereo Power Amplifier

Pyle Pro's PCA1 amplifier was designed with today's music lover in mind. The PCA1's smart, compact design fits neatly on top of a computer tower or next to your laptop to power personal audio speakers. MP3 player or iPod headphone outputs may also be used as an amplifier source with the use of a 3.5 mm stereo plug to dual RCA jack adapter. A very linear wideband frequency response means you won't miss a signal note of a song, and two-channel four-ohm stability allows you to use this amplifier with a wide range of speakers. There is no need for a separate power supply; Pyle Pro has built it into the chassis. Switchable support for both North American 120 VAC and European 230 VAC is included as well.

Specifications: • Power output: 2 x 3 watts (4 ohms @ 1% THD), 2 x 4 watts (4 ohms @ 10% THD) • Frequency response: 20-40,000 Hz (±3 dB) • Signal-to-noise ratio: 75 dB • Power requirement: 120/230 VAC • Dimensions: 2.17" H x 5.62" W x 4.22" D.

Pyle PCA1 Mini 2x15W Stereo Power Amplifier
Pyle PCA1 Mini 2x15W Stereo Power Amplifier is rated 4.1111 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful little ampI've had this amp for about a year now and it still sounds really nice. I don't have much to compare it too, a few cheap shelf stereos of varying power outputs and a small Class D 2x8W amp board also sold here.It's a Class AB amp based on the TDA2009a chip from what I could see under the cover. It has a warmer sound then then the Class D amp, driving the same speakers this amp sounded smoother and not as shrill/fatiguing as the Class D. It could not drive the same speakers as loud as the 2x8watt amp but if you look on the Pyle website you would see that the real rating for this amp is only 2x3watts. While it wasn't as loud as the other amp it was better able to control distortions at high volumes compared to the other amp which would start clipping. Once you figure in the stuff like a case, volume pot, and power supply this amp is a better value.Compared to the cheap shelf stereos it had better fidelity, not as stark as compared to the Class D amp but it still sounded better to my ear. It was lacking in power compared to a shelf stereos but that was no surprise. This is not a window rattling house party boombox, it serves better as a small desktop amp. I also like the simplicity and size of the box as oppose to having some big garish stereo with a cd/tape/radio/million buttons/giant shiny speaker boxes/etc. sitting on my desk, instead it's just the small box sitting under the monitor and some nice small stained wood bookshelf speakers of my own design. Overall I'm very happy with this amp.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Little AmpI needed a small utility amp to drive a set of stereo speakers for a low level background music system. This amp is doing the job perfectly. Can't beat the price for what I use it for!

Pyle PCA1 Mini 2x15W Stereo Power Amplifier

I have a PYLEPRO PCA1 amplifier, SN 108623 that has just quit working.  The red LED over the power switch does not light up.  The fuse is OK.  Any suggestions about what I can do other than to buy another one.

I need the simplest headphone amp for my mom's tv . How do I add a headphone adapter to the speaker outputs?

Is there another product you would recommend?
Asked by: Bkalifa
a 15 watt stereo l-pad soldiered to a headphone jack will work, pin 1 to amp, pin 2 to headphone jack pin 3 to speaker ground do this for both channels adjust it and use the volume control on the amp, start at low volume to not blow the phones or spend a little more and get an amp already with a headphone jack
