Pyle PCAU22 Mini 2x40 Watt Stereo Power Amplifier w/USB
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.
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.)
