Is your Bluetooth input holding up? Mine just crapped out after 4 months of infrequent use. Connection/hook to device was always a bit iffy compared to other wireless receivers I use. I'm wondering if the receiver chip they used was a crappy one?Hi guys. Just wanted to say thank you for the discussions and reviews and to give my thumbs up to this little beauty. This is my first foray in mini budget d class amp and I can't believe how compact and amazing it is. It is a full integrated with volume+tone control, a remote and at half the size of my peachtree dac itx!
the ao100 is replacing arcam solo mini.
The Bluetooth is ok but does not compare to the quality from the line out. My signal chain is Yt music hq, Chromecast tv, cheap HDMI audio converter, peachtree dac itx, smsl ao100 and Sony ss-csd1 2way 12cm woofer 6ohm mini Sys bookshelf. Plenty of power and punch for the Sony bookshelf, it really sings, brining out the golden Sony syrup prat.
Rediculous price, absolutely ridiculous! Black magic stuff.
I don't use Bluetooth but just tried for 30min with no drop out. Disappointing with the warranty policy when it is a clear defectIs your Bluetooth input holding up?

Good to know, thank you for sharingI picked up an AO100 to power small Mission speakers for a stereo TV sound setup. I have no detailed or nuanced sound impressions to report - would be totally subjective, and also we just use this for streaming services, YouTube videos, and so on, so as long as nothing sounds weird or objectionable, we're content sound-wise for this particular application.
That said, I really like this amp a lot: small, dead-silent, unobtrusive, and "just works." Within its power capabilities I cannot imagine anyone would ever find this inferior-sounding when compared to, say, a $150-$300 stereo or AV receiver or pretty much any amp one might use for a secondary system, background music setup, TV-sound setup in a non-home theater scenario, and so on. As a capable, unobtrusive, easy to use utility device with no offensive or problematic sonic issues, I can recommend it highly.
