Solid and versatile mini-amp . gawd . what a relief!

My application: home theater, Polk Audio "bookshelf" speakers rated for 20W RMS continous @ 8 ohms resistance, powered by 6A,19V laptop power supply, fed by audio output from a Behringer mini equalizer. I've been struggling for years to keep an old Yamaha 100W stereo amp working on this system, but finally got sick of jerking around with one side of it cutting out, and other symptoms of age. That amp is now headed for the "e-waste" pile, and good riddance.This "Class D" amp (high efficiency/low

Pros
  • Amplifiers
Cons
  • The amplifier is only compatible with speakers that have an impedance of 4-8 ohms which means that it is not suitable for many different types of speakers.

good modular setup best in my review

I'm going to write one review that covers the Nobsound NS-10P, TPA3116 power amp, and the power cable for the power amp. I bought a Monoprice 16153 50W hybrid amp in Nov 2016 that lasted about a year and a half before having problems. Letting it sit unplugged seems to have fixed it (?) but then started again. Replacement tubes seemed to have fixed it that time, but when it had problems again about a year ago another set of new tubes did not fix it again. I will say that compared to this solid…

Pros
  • This is
Cons
  • The Nobsound Dual TPA3116 Digital Power Amplifier is a bulky and heavy piece of equipment that takes up a lot of space on your desk or shelf

Good little amp: my feedback

I got this because my old shop stereo (yes, really old.….dual cassette decks, 5 CD tray, AM/FM) bit the dust after an electrical storm.Since the speakers were still good & input comes from a remote Sirius receiver, all I needed was an amp & this got the job done well. Plenty of power for my use, but no equalizer. Sounds good even without the boost of an equalizer.Don't forget to also order a power supply as that's not included. I got the Nobsoundhttps://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074J81XRB/ref=p…

Pros
  • Home Audio
Cons
  • The amplifier may have a tendency to pick up interference from other electronic devices in your home.

Simpler is better on my review.

If you have sensitive speakers that you plan to have near you (like computer desktop speakers), this is a great choice. Since it doesn't have tone controls, or a Bluetooth module, it reproduces what it receives perfectly and with zero noise. The choice of just adding an opamp is the cherry on top, which helps on impedance matching and prevents twitchy effects from adjusting a volume knob like other amps with the same chipset.As of note (and from experience), don't use a power supply with an…

Pros
  • Receivers & Amplifiers
Cons
  • The Nobsound Dual TPA3116 Digital Power Amplifier has a limited range of frequency response which may impact the quality of audio output.

NOT 100Wx2! Needs 4 ohm speakers for reasonable volume.

Tested the outputs on a scope and see clipping at 10V pk with the factory 19V/4.7A supply. This is equivalent to about 6Watts RMS into 8 ohms. Check the TI data sheet for TPA3116D2 and they spec 100W only for 2 Ohm load with bridged output, with max 25V DC supply. Bottom line - if you use this with 8 ohm speakers, and factory 19V DC supply, dont expect to rock out, use 4 ohm speakers and 25V DC supply for reasonable volume that you would expect from any medium power stereo. Also - ordered…

Pros
  • Reasonable circuit, concise wiring layout and perfect protection, no sparks no shock. Adopting NE5532 op amp with ultra-low distortion and dynamic balanced, the sound is very smooth and natural, powerful in low frequency and delicate in high frequency, full of music styles.
Cons
  • The amplifier may not be able to deliver the same level of high-fidelity audio as more expensive models on the market.

I'm very happy with this system. It sounds as it should. Very powerful for my 4ohm 25 watt continuous Behringer 1C-BK studio monitors. Have it turned up maybe 15%, so it should theoretically last a very long time, which is what I want, after dealing with so many active studio monitors failing on me.There is a delay when you turn the volume, so be careful not to destroy your system or hearing with it. Slow and careful. I also have a volbox attenuator that lets me control the signal to the amp…

Pros
  • With a 100W×2 output, the Nobsound Dual TPA3116 Digital Power Amplifier can provide enough power to fill a large room with high-quality sound
Cons
  • The Nobsound Dual TPA3116 Digital Power Amplifier does not have a built-in radio or other audio features that some users may find desirable

Does Some Things Amazingly Well

I've been an audio enthusiast for many decades now, and have listened to and evaluated all sorts of audio equipment, some of it pretty high end. This amplifier presents a bit of a paradox to me. It does some things very well, and almost amazingly well for the price, while other things kind of rule it out as a an amplifier that would satisfy an audiophile.First, a quick comment: This didn't come with a power supply, and it won't work without one. You have to provide your own 19VDC power supply…

Pros
  • Versatile connectivity
Cons
  • The amplifier does not have an iPod/iPhone dock, which may be inconvenient for users who prefer to listen to their music through their mobile devices.

Awesome Little Amplifier

I bought this as part of a setup for a sound system on my porch. I attached a bluetooth receiver to it, and have it powering two 45 watt outdoor speakers. I have the amplifier set at a little less than half gain, and I'm getting plenty of sound out of the speakers. With my iPhone at near full volume it's plenty loud enough for a decent party on my 1/3 acre property; and perfect for background noise at low volume. The amplifier works just as well at full gain, no distortion, just was too much…

Pros
  • This is latest updated version that simplify the circuit, upgrade the components and greatly improve the sound quality. Please note this version doesn't include a power supply. Please choose suitable DC 12V-24V power supply.
Cons
  • The amplifier only has RCA inputs, which may not be compatible with all audio sources.

Great sound; wish it came with a proper power supply

This is a great little amp. I have it driving a pair of ELAC Uni-fi UB5's and the sound is perfect. My only gripe is the lack of a proper power supply. I had to go find one that worked properly, and be aware of the sparks if you have it on when you plug it in. Otherwise GREAT amp for the price.

Pros
  • Easy to use
Cons
  • The amplifier has a relatively high price point compared to similar models on the market.

Glad I found this best in my review

This was a fantastic purchase. Wasn't quite sure what to expect but for the price and its size this was a great buy. I have it plugged into a pair of Boston Acoustics speakers (4" woofers) and running along with a tube -- yes, TUBE -- preamp. Sound source is an iMac with the midi control set at 24/96 and it sounds great! Don't expect this to sound like a McIntosh or a Krell electronic setup, but for the price and how I'm running the gear, it's perfect for my ears!

Pros
  • Electronics
Cons
  • The 100W×2 Output may not be enough for some users who want a more powerful amplifier.

Very clear sound even at high volume

I bought this to power a pair of speakers for my backyard and am very happy with it. I initially bought a similar looking model that was priced at $37 which had terrible sound quality at medium to high volumes, so I returned it the next day and ordered this.This amp is a huge step up in quality. My two backyard speakers can be turned up loud enough to where I’d bet the whole neighborhood can hear the music with no drop in quality. Very happy with this so far. I’ll update in a few months if…

Pros
  • Durable construction: This amplifier is built with high-grade materials and quality workmanship, ensuring that it can withstand prolonged use without succumbing to wear and tear
Cons
  • The amplifier does not come with a warranty, which may be a concern for some users.

Excellent sound quality at a bargin basement price!

This looks to be a very well-built mini-amp. The tiny rubber/plastic feet keep it from slipping around on my entertainment center, and the speaker connections will accommodate bare wire or banana plugs, but since they're small and closely spaced, banana plugs are much easier for me to use. I also need to use a DAC to connect to my TV which has a coaxial audio output only.The reason I bought this amp was because I had read somewhere that amps with the TPA3116 chips have better sound quality than

Pros
  • 4330976560
Cons
  • The amplifier only has a two-channel output, so it may not be suitable for those who want a surround sound experience.

Great little amp for the price

Great little amp for the price. I paired it up with a Sonos Connect and a pair of old KLH Model 23 speakers than have been restored. Power supply is a 24v/1 amp unit I had lying around. Very nice, low price system that can be essentially left on all the time. I use Roon software to control music around the house and this setup is in the Master Bedroom for low level listening.The amp is very quiet with no signal noise regardless of the position of the volume knob (when music is not playing)…

Pros
  • Sleek design: The black finish on this amplifier is sure to complement any home entertainment system. The compact size also ensures that it won't take up too much space
Cons
  • The black color of the amplifier may not suit everyone's aesthetic preferences.
