I purchased this unit 6 months ago because I needed a receiver for under $700 that could handle a pair of 4ohm speakers. I was a bit skeptical about just how well this would work, but for less than $100 I believed it would be worth a shot.
Initially, I encountered a similar difficulty with the hiss (as well as some clipping and distortion).
However, as soon as I switched out the 4ohm speakers for an 8ohm Bose set, the receiver sang just fine. A keeper!
(Note that some minor amp hum is to be expected with *any* receiver. The only time I can hear it on this model is when I place my ear directly in front of the speakers. That said, I have noticed over the years that some reviewers can be quick to growl at equipment when the real problem is poor speaker placement. There are several good articles on the web that provide details on how to avoid the audible consequences of positioning speakers too high or at incorrect angles.)
That aside, here are a few other perks of the Pyle PT-260-A:
- At level 10 (out of 40) it provides good background sound. At 20, it can fill a large room and be heard clearly in the next room. At 30, it becomes uncomfortable to the ears.
- The EQ controls are programmed to handle a significant range, with the bass creeping as low as 40Hz (not always the case in cheaper model receivers, which usually only stretch to 60-80Hz). Meantime, the treble only reaches as far as 15kHz, which is actually a strength considering the depth of the bass (cheaper models tend to exaggerate the high end, which is why they tend to be characterized as sounding tinny).Read more ›

Terrible distortion, terrible fm and am reception.
I would avoid this at all costs.
Definitely a solid choice for an entry level system. Though it's not exactly clear in the product information, the rated 200w is total power, not per channel like other receivers are rated for. (You'll see on Amazon ones that say 300 watts (per channel) ). It has two channels, and two L/R speaker terminals for each channel.
According to the product information, each channel can handle two 25 watt 8ohm speakers (50w x 2 channels), or a single 50w 8ohm on each channel. It was a little bit confusing, but that's coming from an amateur.
I wouldn't recommend using 4 ohm speakers. One reviewer mentioned it would overheat, but also, in the manual, it does say normal impedance (for the device) is 8 ohms. The 200watt rating is a marketing trick I'm sure; 100watts per channel, x2 channels, @ 4 ohm. But it clearly says normal is 8 ohm. Maybe I misunderstand.
Other reviews mention how hard it is to set the radio memory. It is actually not all the difficult (and no, it's nowhere in the product "manual"). Figured it out on accident. You have to first press menu twice, while in radio mode, and then you can use the main dial as the radio tuner (or use the tuner button on the remote). Once at the desired station, press memory, and then press channel up. You can hit channel down to verify your station was saved.
Speaking of radio, I found it quite difficult to actually get stations in. Maybe I've got it setup wrong, but, at 93.7, I pick up background noise music from 103.7. And I can hear 93.7 from 95.5 all the way to 88.5, playing in the background. I've tried repositioning the antenna but it doesn't help.Read more ›
First of all, the fact that it can power two channels of audio doesn't mean that you can select which one you can play audio out of. You cannot. If you plug in speakers on both channels, it plays on both channels. There is no selectivity. The whole reason I bought this was to play on an indoor set of speakers and occasionally play the same music on an outdoor set of speaker, so the A/B had to be selectable. Unfortunately, this receiver does not work for that. This is why I will be returning it. The advertisement clearly sets it has A and B channels, which in more receivers means that you can select between them... oh, well...
Secondly, as reported by others, there is no power control from the remote control. I had planned on putting this receiver out of the way and controlling everything from the remote via a IR extender. Unfortunately, without a power button on the remote, I can't realistically do that.
Third, while you can select the programmed radio channels via the remote control, you cannot directly tune via the remote control. For those who already know what channels they want to program, this can be annoying, since the only option is to scan through the spectrum till you find the right channel, then program it. "Irritating" is about the only word for it.
The sound is fine, but there are too many detractors for me to recommend it to anyone except for those who need a basic system within arms reach and who have a lot of patience for the irritants.
