Just curious if anybody out there has one of these and if they are happy with? Seems very reasonably priced?

Just like the remaining of their line,extreme low budget stuff do not expect more than 100 watts per channel if the moon is in-line with a very specific starlight on Friday the 13th @ midnight lol. @ that price(retail 480$) get an Emotiva on sale you will be glad you did.

Warning to prevent risk of injuries, you should always be smarter than the equipment you are about to use.

Pyle hardware is not investment grade. But you could get luckly, but a bad amp can damage your speakers. Cheap amps are like cheap tires for your car..
For the same price there are many 2 ch amps worth listening too, check out pro amps

Thanks for the replies. Yes, I kept wondering why this thing was so cheap. The reason I ask is because I was looking to buy a Emotiva UPA-7....but they are discontinued. Ugh.....I then stumbled across this.

8000 watts?? This is one reason why I don't like Pyle. And being the cheapest amp maker on the market, you have to wonder about quality.

Even if that was one channel driven, with a pure square wave output, it's going to make 1000 watts? I find that really hard to believe.

Are there better solutions such as just sticking with a receiver with it's own amps? I have my suspicions that is true, but I have never owned one of their amps.

Any suggestions on an alternative amplifier for driving speakers in multiple rooms from the zone 2 output on a receiver?

I am presently evaluating this amplifier; I took a chance on it for $277 from Amazon vs. several hundred more for the other multi-channel amplifiers I found. Thus far it doesn't seem to have a functioning 12V trigger input. Also, when I turn it off via the front-panel power switch it seems to trip my Denon AVR-2313CI protecting circuit. Still investigating...

Thanks,
Adam

Thanks for the (quick) suggestion.

I have 3 rooms, 8 ohms R & L in each, for 6 channels in addition to the 5.1 in my living room. The volume controls in each room can take 100W RMS. Likewise, the speakers can handle 100W RMS / 200W peak. The 105W RMS / 215W peak from my Denon AVR-2313CI has been a good match - I've been able to test one pair of speakers at a time with my zone 2 speaker outputs. I planned to keep using those zone 2 outputs for 1 room and use the new amplifier for the other 2 rooms, so I need 4 more channels.

I did look at the AudioSource series in my search. All of the AMP's are 2-channel models except the 1200 (12 channels). The best option might be one AMP 310 ($458, 225W into 4 ohms) with speakers in parallel getting 112.5W each. Alternately I'd need two AMP 210's ($348 each, 90W RMS into 8 ohms). There's a chance two of the AMP110's ($280 each, 75W per channel) would be good enough. The AudioSource info does indicate 12V trigger.

The Pyle is still tripping my Denon receiver whenever the Pyle powers off and is connected via RCA's to the Denon. That worries me, both for damaging the Denon and for not being able to add an external 12V-controlled relay.

I measured the quiescent current on the Pyle's AC supply to be 200 mA. At 11.7 cents per KW-Hr, I'm looking at $24/year to leave it on all the time. But then I have to worry about it...just in general given what I've already seen and the negative comments.

A single AMP1000 along with an impedance matching speaker selector from forum sponsor Monoprice should work just fine.
