Decent for the price
on November 6, 2007
To be honest, I did not purchase this product with high expectations. I simply needed an inexpensive way to supply music to various rooms in my house... The garage, basement, and kitchen.
First the good: It's cheap and easy to use. The audio signal it sends to the speakers is decent and better than your average clock-radio. In fact, it is probably more than adequate for non-critical listening.
The bad: The unit definitely degrades the audio signal. I currently have it connected to four different speakers brands and all of them reflect the same shortcoming, a loss of mid-to-upper range definition and a tendency to give the music a vague hollow sound. The better the speaker, the more this will be apparent.
For less than $40 you really can't expect anything better. There is no way I would recommend this unit for a true audiophile. For someone simply wants an inexpensive way to add music to other parts of the house, it's a cheap way to go.
