Three stereo line-level inputs and a 1/4" microphone input are provided for source connection and mixing. A pager switch provides source attenuation for microphone priority. Stereo recording is made possible by the built-in line-level outputs. Balance, tone, speaker volume, microphone volume, power, and source selection controls are front-mounted for quick adjustment

The Ultimate Stereo Power Amplifier

This amplifier gives you the power and versatility you need to create a professional sound system. Its wide frequency response makes it suitable for amplifying any type of audio including music or vocals. It can be used in meeting halls, restaurants, schools, stores, and at home --the perfect solution for paging systems anywhere. Get the power you need with 2 x 40 Watt to handle all your audio needs.

Switchable Mixing (Karaoke) Mode

When set to 'mixing' the signals from AUX1, AUX2, CD, & MIC will exist at the same time and works great for creating a karaoke event. Your music will play from your selected audio source and you will be able to sing through a connected microphone. (Microphone not included)

Switchable MIC Pager Mode

When set to 'pager' the signal from AUX1, AUX2, & CD will be attenuated by -10dB and the signal from MIC will override to page (Auto Talkover) and makes for an exceptional paging system.

L/R Speaker Terminals

Lets you easily connect speaker wires directly to the amplifier. The speaker impedance can be ranged from four to eight Ohms for the general stereo output. The total speaker impedance must be at least four Ohm per channel at stereo mode.

110/220 Voltage Selector

This amplifier has selectable input voltage from 110 V/60 Hz (the standard in USA and Canada) to 220 V/50 Hz (for European operation). Please make sure the switch is in the proper position before operating.

1/4-Inch Phone Jack

Accepts headphones with 1/4-inch plugs.

1/4-Inch Microphone Input Jack

Accepts microphones with 1/4-inch plugs.

REC RCA Output

Lets you connect the amplifier to a tape deck for recording.

Take Control

Use the control center panel located on the face of the unit to make adjustments to microphone volume, master volume, balance, bass, and treble

Replaceable Power Fuse

The amplifier uses a fuse for protection against surges and short circuit. If the amplifier suddenly turns off and will not turn on, check the fuse, and replace it if necessary. (Replacement fuse to use: 1.5-amp, 250-volt, fast-acting .2 x .8 inches fuse -not included)

Style Name: PTA2 Mini Amp Verified Purchase
I had some extra speakers I wanted to drive with something hooked up to my computer and/or DVD player. I'd been using old stereo component amps but tired of how big they are and wanted to find something a little more streamlined. Well, this unit is exactly what I was looking for-- clean, sturdily constructed, low noise, small size, and exactly the options I would want and nothing more.

Back panel has voltage switch 110/230, fuse access, line out, microphone in, and three sets of inputs. I hooked it up to my 4-ohm speakers, and it kicks up a pretty decent output. Exceeded my expectations.

Bought mine from All Audio Expo via Amazon, and it appears to be brand new in box as originally sealed by the mfg. UPS sure trashed the heck out of the outer box though, but All Audio did an expert job of double-boxing with peanuts so the inner box was fine and the unit is completely undamaged and works perfect.

Style Name: PTA2 Mini Amp Verified Purchase
My situation was that I had a pair of weighty JBL L100 speakers leftover from the mid-70's. The receiver died a long time ago, but I really just wanted to crank up those old speakers to see if they still delivered. Since my tunes are all on the IPod, I didn't see the need to invest in a receiver all over again. I decided to give the Pyle a try. You'll need to get a mini (3.5mm) to RCA plug adapter for IPod usage,but after that you're good to go.

This is an impressive unit. Small footprint, volume control, bass/treble controls, multiple inputs are the features I liked. It supplies plenty of power for those old JBLs, which still sound great after all of these years.

For the price, highly recommended.

**Update 7/25/11- I bought a second one of these to power some outdoor speakers. Works just as well as the first...still highly recommended.

Style Name: PTA2 Mini Amp

If you do a search for Pyle Mini Amp on Amazon and compare them, you may find one with more inputs for less money. I recommend getting one with several inputs, because you may need more in the future.

Also, it really does help to get a more powerful amplifier. At least try to get the most powerful Pyle Mini Amp. Distortion itself can damage speakers even at a low volume. Amps with low watts can blow out speakers quicker than amps with a high watt rating. A helpful thing to remember is that if you never hear distortion (no matter how loud the music is) you will probably never blow out your speakers. Distortion sounds like a scratchy record, or an FM station out of tune, or you might actually hear a rattling sound in the speaker itself. If you hear distortion, turn down the volume right away! An amp that puts out more watts is less likely to create distortion, and far less likely to blow out speakers.

The specifications of quality electronics will say @ something, like: "Signal to Noise Ratio @ 1 kHz, 4-Ohm Rated Power..." Without the @ symbol, a manufacturer can say any number they want, as long as it falls somewhere within an extremely broad range of test results which are meaningless.

20Hz-20KHz (20 to 20,000 Hertz) is very good FREQUENCY RESPONSE, IF it is rated @ +/-3dB (At Plus or Minus 3 Decibels)... and None of these Pyle Mini Amps have the helpful +/-3dB rating that is common with most quality electronics. The largest pipe organ pipes and the rumble of the mother ship at the end of Close Encounters are way down at about 16Hz. And while human hearing only really goes up to around 18Khz (18,000 Hertz) for most people, the overtones on any good violin go far above 20,000 Hz.

I purchased this unit so I could listen to a cd player while working in my garage. I already had an older component cd player, tuner, speakers etc just lying around unused, so all I needed was a small amp at a low price to have my tunes. While it is primarily geared for DJ and PA use (it has mic input and mixing/paging controls), this is a perfect choice if you already have extra component equipment and just need some watts. Well constructed, cool running, and nice looking also. An excellent value IMHO.

I love this little thing! But be sure to check the manual online ([...]) to make sure it has all the features you will need. I probably would have bought the PTA3 for a little extra power if I realized the PTA2 was going to give only about 8W of usable power. The PTA3 also has those hideous blue LED level meter things, which I didn't want to deal with in my living room.

As others have mentioned, the PTA2 is not going to give you 40 useful watts. Definitely not 2x40 = 80 Watts.

How much sound you will get depends on your speakers and how much space you're trying to fill up with sound. It also depends how many watts you actually need to listen to. Doubling the amount of watts only gives you an increase of 3db. How much is 3db? That's hard to measure in terms of actual listening, but most seem to say that 3db is a difference of "just noticeably louder." So basically when you go from 100W to 200W, you're only getting a real difference of "just noticeable" in volume. So for most listening volumes and with efficient speakers, most of us probably aren't listening at a very high wattage anyway.

What to look for with your speakers is the efficiency (sometimes called "sensitivity") rating. I'd say a rating of 89db and above will be loud enough for most small rooms with the PTA2. Just 1db difference in speaker efficiency makes a VERY noticeable impact in how much power it takes to get the same volume. If your speakers are lower than 89db efficiency, I'd seriously consider the PTA3 or something more powerful. It seems that most mid-level speakers at the big electronics stores (like Klipsch and Polk) are around 90db now. Some really high end stuff will require much more power than the Pyle.
