I have read many reviews of similar items and decided to plump for this one. Chinese no-brands tend to amaze and disappoint in equal measure.
It arrived today, the power supply is actually wider than the amp itself. The amp is made out of metal and rather nicely finished. Incidentally the power supply is 24v 4.5 amps, 108 watts and claims to be certified by TUV and GS two highly respected German Laboratories. Even so, its probably a good idea to check the fuse in the plug is 5a if you intend to leave it left switched on. This unit claims to contain two Texas Instrument chips for amplification and one by Qualcomm, the latter presumably for Bluetooth.
I found some old QED speaker cable I had lying around and hooked it up to an old pair of Tannoy Eclipses I have owned since the eighties. I have to say, so far I am pretty amazed by this unit. It‘s very clear, detailed and loud with loads of bass. I would estimate equally it is as good as one of those £500 Japanese hifi stack systems from the eighties. Is it hi-fi? Hi-fi is as good as your hearing and to get great sound you have to pay a lot, so who knows. I would say this is a bargain and would be great to use with a couple of old speakers sitting in the loft. Certainly better than most portable speakers folk use these days.
Some have experienced a problem with the Bluetooth, well it says it supports BT5.0, i have an iPhone 13 and it sounds great, so can only presume they had a defective unit or possibly phone.
Someone suggested it really needs a remote control, well maybe if you connect via the phono sockets yes, but don't forget you can adjust the volume for bluetooth on your phone.
Altogether (and yes it’s early days) a rather terrific and great value little amplifier, it’s going in my study so I can turn it up loud without bothering the neighbours. :-)
Added 31/12/2021…. Someone criticised this for the way Bluetooth was implemented and the possibility of others having access to it. Well in theory, yes they can as there is no PIN, but there isn’t on most similar pieces of equipment. However if you switch it off and unplug, this is not a problem. My Sony headphones connect automatically when they are turned on. This amp only connects when I choose to on my iPhone, it doesn’t connect automatically once paired, which I think is a good idea for this type of device
