Pros: Small, Inexpensive, Separate Bass and Treble

Cons: Auto On/Off is Iffy

I have a pair of Polk Monitor 30 Series 2 bookshelf speakers that put out sound that I like. I was looking for a solution to use them for my computers audio. This amp has a 1/8" stereo input jack that works perfect for a computer. It is small enough to have it within arms reach on my desk. I love the separate bass and treble controls. (they were the deciding factor over the AMP100 which has no tone controls) I have the speakers outputs going first to a Polk PSW10 sub, then out to the Monitor 30s. The sound is impressive. Better than any other prepackaged computer 2.1 setup that I've heard. Considering I paid $240 for the whole setup, I believe I built myself a bargain kickass system. I keep the volume around the 9:00/10:00 position and it is very loud if the computers volume is maxed. I use macro buttons on my mouse to control the volume. The reason I removed 1 star under performance is that the auto on/off sensing feature is hit or miss. It doesn't sense soft passages well. Since it is within reach, I keep the selector switch in the back of the amp to full on and turn it on and off manually from the front push button.
