Serves a purpose, but don't expect hifi.
 
Hi,I use this amplifier to listen to NPR classical music on headphones (Sennheiser PX100) with an old FM stereo tuner. The amplifier serves its purpose, though I'd research Headwize.com for other options if I could do it again. In situations where perfect fidelity isn't so critical as reliability, this amplifier is a good choice.The good points:InexpensiveEasy to assembleReliablePowerfulInput matched for line out, not headphone out.

Moms best friend
 
Bought this for my father. He's hard of hearing and was driving my mother crazy by turning the TV volume up all day long. Bought/built this to hook up to audio out on the TV and used a 25 foot cord to set him up with headphones. He used a cordless headset before this. He didn't like having to buy batteries for the headset continually. Yes, he's 75 years old, he got to complain about something. This way, no batteries. Now he's gotta find something else to complain about.

Nice, but needs a few improvements
 
This is a very wide bandwidth amp and should be capable of driving just about anything you have.What I cannot understand is the way they implemented the volume controls. Not only are they separate, which means you have to readjust the balance every time you adjust the volume, but they used linear (rather than audio taper) pots with the left on the right and the right on the left. I can see doing that if you are putting a quick prototype together out of spare parts, but if you can o...

Good amp for a good price.
 
This kit provides quality components and clear detailed instructions. Anyone who can solder should be able to assemble it in under an hour. The result is a quality amplifier for a great price.Like another reviewer, I am dismayed by the fact I have to remove two over-long screws, thus opening the amplifier case, to change the battery. As a result, I will rarely, if ever, run the amp on battery power. It is currently working great on a cheapo variable voltage "universal" wall-wart....

Great sound
 
I use this amplifier with Grundig S350 radio(line output) and Sennheiser HD280 headphone. They form a great music system; it seems to me that all of the three devices have quite a flat response.Before you use it, you hvae to spend about an hour putting the components in the PCB and solding them. It took 20-30 hours to burn in. One thing I feel uncomfortable about is it is in lack of a battery compartment; if you want to install a 9v battery you have to unsrew two long screws and open...

Background hiss ruins an otherwise good product. SSSSSSS...
 
SSSSSSSSSSSSS... Got this, it was exactly what I needed, and sounded good - except for that continual, annoying BACKGROUND HISS. Paid the extra bucks to have them assemble it, so it was not my doing. Should have returned it, but kept trying to ignore the hiss, finally tossed it. SSSSSSSSSSSSS...

I love it!!!
 
What attracted me to this amplifier was the separate volume control for each channel. I have a 50 percent hearing loss in my right ear and this feature allowed me to compensate for my hearing difficulty.I have a lot of experience soldering but not on a circuit board. I had to buy a new soldering iron with a pointed tip. I had a bit of trouble soldering in those tight quarters...but by being careful and checking as I went along, I didn't have any soldering bridges. I used an artist's ...

Great kit!
 
This is the first kit I've ordered from Ramsey, but certainly not the last! This thing was a great learning project for my mentee and me to work on. Great kit!

okay
 
works, was easy to build, needs tone controls. I decided to try their better kit with tone controls, and it has way too much "hiss" - white noise.
