Maybe folks know this thing doesn't ship with a power supply, but it caught me by surprise when the Kinter showed up with no cord. Since it calls for a non-standard 5-amp supply, plan on hunting around for one and shelling out more money.
Also, as another reviewer noted, the LED cycles through various colors. I disassembled the amp, and you can't pick a solid color, although you could snip the LED or bend it out of the way to dim it, if you were so inclined. The color-changing "feature" is an irritant, in my book.
In case you're wondering why I bought the Kinter instead of another Lepai, I wanted the USB plug to power a wireless input I bought. The USB port (power output only) works, but the rest of the amp is altogether underwhelming.
The model I ordered came with a high quality 12 Volt 4 Amp Zitrades power supply. The amplifier arrived promptly in shrink wrap and packaged in a Kinter box indicating that it had not been previously used. The amplifier and power supply were packaged in a sealed and labeled Amazon stocking envelope. Both devices were operational at arrival.
I cleaned the solder flux residue and other contamination from the PWB before making any measurements. Otherwise soldering workmanship was excellent, with evidence of hand soldering of those components (with flux residue) which could not be wave soldered.
All of the amplifier components are on one PWB which slides into the case. The PWB has a solder mask on the circuit side where the through-hole components are soldered.Read more ›
C5 and C13 with 100pF ceramic caps, replaced AX358 with 4558 and the annoying tri-color led to a cool blue led.
The mod made not necessary if you are using the amp in a noisy environment.
I took mine out of the case and it's very compact. The amp chip is an unknown design, but it's about half the size of the tripath TA2020, I assume it's about half the power. So for half the price you are getting half the power. It's a good deal for $10. Also, without the heatsink/case it works fine, starts to cutoff a bit when you drive it too hard because of the heat. But at below 5 watts/channel (the distortion free zone) it runs just fine.
The usb plug is worthless and creates electrical interference. The tone adjusters are a pleasant surprise on an amp this cheap. They work great. They color changing led is silly, I guess they had an over supply at the factory. When the amp has inadequate voltage it will cutout. When you short it, it will turn off immediately. The protection circuit works.
My recommendation: Set the volume knob to 50%, then adjust bass to 80%, set treble according to your speakers. This will give you optimal performance from this amp.
Enjoy listening to hifi stereo sound at 5 watts per channel!
