Using the separate Bass and Treble controls you can customize your sound. A large front knob controls the volume and is surrounded by a changing LED lighting. Mounting tabs found on the sides of the MA170 amp make it great for DIY projects or other applications where having a fixed location is required.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful enough
By lastofleaves on June 7, 2019
First off, things I dislike: The stupid color-changing LED is annoying if this thing is anywhere you can see it. The speaker terminals are mounted tab-down, making use difficult if you have this mounted to something. The volume knob is too easy to accidentally adjust. The front panel is slightly off-center in relation to the circuit board. There's no heatsink on the amp IC.

So why did I give it 5 stars? This thing is the same price as a burrito and has way more than enough power to drive my 3" desktop "monitors". I bought this to replace the innards of my Behringer MS-20 2x10W "near field monitors." I didn't like that the electronics of the Behringer system were so hot, heavy and power hungry, and I don't need any of the digital inputs. So I ripped all that out and plopped this bad boy on top. Sounds fine.

People complain that it doesn't come with a power supply, but honestly that's one of the best features in my opinion. Do you really want the cheapest possible power supply crammed in there with your audio amplifier? Didn't think so. There's a nice beefy cap in there to provide enough power smoothing for anyone but audiophiles who wouldn't buy this thing anyway.

In short, this little dude delivers a lot of performance for the price point. My only other complaint is that if I turn the volume knob past 1/3, a mysterious, irregular knocking/banging sound starts at the ceiling and walls of my apartment, and eventually makes its way to my front door. I'm sure I'll figure out what that is eventually.

Disclaimer: I'm not an audio enginerd, just a normal dude who wants music at his desk to not sound tinny.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works just as well as a $10 amp should
By Garrett Gagnon on August 17, 2019
I bought this amp for the sole purpose of troubleshooting a set of passive speakers. I only needed it to pass sound so I could test functionality (wasn't concerned about sound quality). It did this job very well and there were no special quirks to its functionality.

The sound quality is definitely worth the $10 I paid for it. After doing some measurements comparing this amp to another amp 6x the price, I can give some idea as to how it sounds. It DOES pass a full frequency range (20ish-20k) but there's a pretty big accentuation in the midrange (or loss of high end). I can't give an objective measurement of the amp, but the image I've included compares this amp (BLUE) to the better amp that replaced it (GREEN). What you can take away from this graph is not the overall trend but the DIFFERENCE between traces. You can see that the Kinter roll off to lose about 10dB by the time it reaches 10kHz.

Long story short - good for $10!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gran opción para armar un equipo de sonido
Reviewed in Mexico on February 1, 2019
Cumple bastante bien con su función,
SONIDO: Tiene la capacidad de trabajar con un volume alto, en lo personal esperaba menos, pero me sorprendió
Lo uso para música en un taller al exterior y nunca me ha dejado mal
CALIDAD: MUY buena es de metal y los botones han aguantado más de año y medio de uso
FUNCIONES: tiene control de bajos, control de agudos y la perilla de ajuste de volume así que a gusto se puede modificar
Tiene salida de dos vías así que le tengo puesto dos cajas de bocina y las levanta muy bien
El único detalle es que solo admite entrada de audio en auxiliar 3.5
Pero es un producto recomendable y funcional

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelente producto
Reviewed in Mexico on August 26, 2020
Tengo un microcomponente AIWA al cual solo le funciona el radio y aunque puedo escuchar musica de mi cel por el aux input, pues esta muy estorboso, asi que compré éste apartito que ocupa 1/8 de espacio y que me da casi la misma potencia del microcomponente con las mismas bocinas pero sin ocupar el espacio del otro, lo puse debajo de mi monitor y no estorba para nada. No genera ruido de fondo como otros comentarios han expuesto, seguramente debido a la fuente de poder incorrecta.

No incluye fuente pero es bastante fácil de conseguir en línea, los precios pueden variar dependiendo de dónde se busque, yo tenia un eliminador de un módem de telmex que le quedó bien. La fuente recomendada es de 12V con 3AMP, menos de esto te puede distorsionar el volumen si le subes mucho.

Según su especificación técnica es de 18W y le puedes conectar bocinas de 4 ohms.

Para mí fue una excelente compra y reutilicé unas bocinas que funcionan muy bien .
