The speakers are not highly efficient and are relatively hard to drive, but this amp does the trick. It drives the speakers beautifully, they sound great, and it gets plenty loud. At half volume, I have to turn the amp down. Plenty of power.
The amp is small, solid, well-designed, stays cool, and exceeds all of my expectations. Looks and feels like a high-end, quality product. I like it.
I'd rate it lower than 3 stars, but when it does work I have absolutely nothing to complain about. In fact, I'm just now replacing it because it does still get to work under light coaxing and I didn't think it was super necessary. Really, It looks nice, it gets the job done and the sound is clean. I have input running from an external DAC and it has never given me any static or hiss. Was a 5 Star item up til that point where it started acting up. Would look forward to an upgrade or revision.
When it was working, it seemed to shift the balance to the left speaker on low volumes. The blue power LED is extremely bright and annoying.
Also, the power supply is as big as the amp, so it takes up twice as much space as you might think.
Build quality is exceptional for the price, and it looks very classy sitting on a desktop.
Overall, it has exceeded my expectations in every way, and I would definitely buy it again.
Recently, I added a Yamaha 10 inch powered subwoofer with a high pass filter at 40Hz for my main speakers, and the overall setup is quite possibly one of the best I have ever heard. Definitely worth the $270 total investment.
The customer support experience has changed my mind in regard to Dayton Audio and I am likely to consider them in the future.
This product has very low quality.
The first thing I found was that when using the music input on the front there was no sound on the left channel. The right channel produced sound. I opened the amplifier case and observed a solder bridge between two pins on the front panel audio in jack. Using a soldering iron I re-soldered the connection without the solder bridge and the input now works. How this passed quality control is beyond me, as this was not a failure after shipment.
The right channel is quieter than the left channel at all volume settings, and at low levels cuts out completely. The difference becomes less noticeable at high playback volumes, but I do not always want high volume.
I bought this to drive a pair of Klipsch RB-10 speakers on my computer desk and the small form factor was appealing. It does have a decent amount of power, and plays plenty loud for a near field setup.
I will not be buying another, and will likely never buy another product by Dayton Audio.
I had tried an app from the App Store to serve as equalizer with the $10 amp, and it did improve matters considerably. But now it is obvious the amp was the problem. With the DTA-120, I don't need any EQ. I also do not need to turn the amp volume up to hear "enough" of the music.
I do not hear any system noise (conditions: nothing playing, amp turned all the way up, ears a foot from the speakers, paying attention).
Audio specialists might be able to explain why this sounds great when the cheap amp did not. Maybe the difference in power -- you do need a bit of power in the amp for moderate to low listening levels, to reproduce the instantaneous peaks.

Quality is meh. There was some loss of high freq details IMO.
Con: Right channel cuts out at low volume.
