Pyle PCAU22 Mini 2x40 Watt Stereo Power Amplifier w/USB
Pyle PCAU22 Mini 2x40 Watt Stereo Power Amplifier w/USB is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pyle PCAU22I bought this amp to use as part of a simple desktop PC sound system. My speakers are RCA 2-ways with Lineaum tweeters. Although it's only 40W/ch, this amp works and sounds great. It does exactly what I need it to do. I didn't buy it as a hi-fi amp, but it sounds just fine for videos as well as with the WAV files on my PC.

The USB on this amplifier does not provide output power for a device.

Would this device work to amplify/power speakers connected externally from my tablet? I want to have external speakers powered while watching Netflix on my tablet. 

Asked by: Ra77
Yes this will work for that application. A simple 3.5mm to RCA cable will be all you need for this.

Can I connect this to an AV receiver?

I have a Denon DRA-355 stereo receiver and i was looking to connect more than 4 speakers to it. I am wondering if anyone knows if I can connect this mini receiver to it via RCA and use it as a receiver for my sub and another speaker.
Asked by: GrantD
Yes, you can in theory, but I would like to inform you that I was not very happy with this item when I purchased it some years ago due to untrue ratings and massive distortion. It really gets about 10-15 watts of clean "Denon" quality power. You would be better off with an amplifier board from Sure Electronics in a proper case (if you had the time for a fun little project) , or one of a few Dayton amplifiers. I will have these all linked in the bottom. I hope that you have the best of luck!Product list:1. Sure T-amp board (project board/working amp)2. Dayton DTA-1 (shrimpy but compact and cheap. Not great for bass, but for speakers it's phenomenal)3. Dayton DTA-100 (DTA-1's bigger brother, smaller size, higher power, and more expencive, but still reasonable and great sounding)4. Dayton APA150 ( A 2 x 75 watt, or 1 x 150 watt bridged amplifier. This is a d-amp with a medium size of about 5"x5"x8-10", or half the size, if not a third, of a reciever. Cleanest and largest of all I have linked. A good choice for a dedicated subwoofer amp too. And my top choice if you have the money.)
