Style Name: PCA12BT Bluetooth Amp
Most of the reviews for this Bluetooth amp are actually for the non-Bluetooth version. Pyle has been sneaky enough to mix both products into one so that it would appear the Bluetooth amp works great. Unfortunately I found that the Bluetooth connection is rather unreliable. After looking closer at the reviews I quickly realized that the reviews which are actually for the Bluetooth version are mostly negative. I wish I had realized this before I ended up buying this unit. Now I have to pay another $14 in shipping to send it back.

Style Name: PCA12BT Bluetooth Amp Verified Purchase
I was looking for a simple amplifier with built in bluetooth to power a pair of outdoor speakers. This looked like exactly what I needed, and indeed it would be... if the bluetooth actually worked. Please, if you want to use bluetooth at all, stay far far away (check other reviews, I'm not the only one noticing this). Pairing is not an issue, but sound quality and consistency are. As soon as any of my devices were paired, I would get a very loud hum from the speakers. Then when playing music, it would cut in and out and be incredibly garbled. Distance from the amp to the device didn't matter - it did the same thing whether I was standing right next to it or 10 feet away. I plugged in via the mini jack and it was fine, so bluetooth is definitely the culprit. Even stranger, the amp would randomly emit an "on hold" sound (like a phone) very loudly over the speakers. If this is meant to indicate some kind of problem you'd never know it from the manual that was clearly run through Google translate, and which doesn't mention a thing about this random tone. This is coming from someone who has used many Bluetooth devices, amplifiers, and speaker sets through the years, so don't think I just don't know what I'm doing. Returned for a refund the next day.

Style Name: PCA12BT Bluetooth Amp Verified Purchase
Plus:
+ Solid, hefty feel
+ USB charger at front panel
+ Bluetooth sync was a snap
Negatives:
- Only 12W/channel (25W peak)
- Lots of humming noise at 50% output using the Bluetooth connection
- lots of distortion at 50% or above
- Every 30-60 sec, amp injects a ~1000Hz beeping sound!?
Sound quality over line connection is even worse
Narrative:
Okay, i didn't expect a lot, but the combination of price, wattage and integrated Bluetooth sounded perfect for my application. I intended to drive a pair of ceiling speakers (of the cheap, high impedance variety) to my iPhone. No need for a lot of power or high fidelity. And in fact, the sound level was adequate at 50% output and the sound quality wasn't too bad. A bit tinny, but the combination of small gauge wires and cheap speakers had a lot to do with that.
However, the humming noise and distortions at only half volume are atrocious. Also, the published specs are misleading, because the amp is only 12W/channel and the quoted 25W/Channel are only peak handling capability. Most annoying and befuddling is the constant beeping sound that the amp sends to the speakers at somewhat random, but frequent, intervals. I assumed that the beeps are some sort of error indicator, but i can figure it out. It only appears in bluetooth mode. However the bluetooth connection was strong and i had the phone right next to the antenna. the beeps are there with or without music. I changed impedance of the cables and speakers, but nothing worked.
Just for giggles, i hooked up my $5000 B&W floor standing speakers. As expected, it sounded much worse, the tiny amp couldn't dive the large speakers. And- the beeping in bluetooth mode was still there.
I wanted this to work, but i give up and send it back.

Style Name: PCA12BT Bluetooth Amp Verified Purchase
Arrived well packaged. I wanted to update a current stereo setup. Disconnected and removed Lepai 2020 that was working great. Attached Bose speakers to the new Pyle PCA 12BT. Plugged in power cord. Turned unit on with volume all the way down. Noticed a new hum coming from speakers. Okay... Next, I pushed the bluetooth button and powered on my ipod that I just previously used to listen to tunes on my new Ecostone Bluetooth Speakers (the ipod paired perfectly seamlessly with that unit and it sounded very nice. I had just got out of my car BTW where I listen to my ipod over my car's built-in blutooth audio system-also paired rapidly and works and sounds like a charm). In comparison, this new Pyle did the following: It paired after a loud beep. Okay. Not a problem. But when I slowly turned up the volume two things happened: 1) A harsh cutting in and out sound where I could only hear the music for a second or two at a time, at most. 2) Volume was at least 40-60% lower than before with the wired Lepai 2020. And the sound coming out now (the bluetooth "music" sounded underwater and at very low volume). Even after slowly turning up the volume knob all the way, it just seemed like it was straining. And you could here lots of distortion as well as "underwater" muffling on all musical frequencies.

I really was routing for this unit. I wanted it to work. I seemed well build and had some heft and mass to it too. I had no problem with the spring speaker connections. Going in I knew that I would not be using monster cable for a cheaper set up like this. But I expected at least halfway decent sound. And volume. And I expected it to at least connect via bluetooth AND actually deliver the music. But to my dismay it did not.
