The perfect driver for multi-room speakers!

Crutchfield customer from Sandy Springs, GA on 12/20/2020

I give this five stars simply because it does its job well. I use it to drive four pairs of speakers around my house (great room, kitchen, workout room, deck), but it is simply the power driver. The secret to my system is the Yamaha source reviewed earlier. The AD508 stays happily in standby until it detects an input signal. It then sends amplified output to the impedance matched volume controls in each room, powering four pairs of speakers. A couple of key points to consider. Other than the master power switch, all controls are on the back. If you mount it in a rack (hardware included) it's not a big deal, but most of us me included have our components in an enclosed cabinet. This unit is heavy! You really need to determine your configuration, set it up and forget it. Once set up, it is a joy. The Phoenix connectors for the eight speakers make it very easy to connect the speakers even if the unit is in its final resting place. Frankly, your source selector device is more critical as this is a base amp with some flexibility, but that flexibility should be determined up front based on your needs and the design of the input device. Happy listening!

Pros: Purpose perfect Clear sound, minimum distortion Phoenix connectors Configurable for various audio sources

Cons: Heavy! Controls on back

AudioSource AD508 Setup and Use

Crutchfield customer from Henderson, NV on 9/1/2020

Purchased on sale and after a good recommendation from Crutchfield Customer Service. Arrived on time in a secure double box. Setup for three room zones was easy. Carefully identified all the correct room speaker wires - left/right, negative/positive. This is a high quality amp that uses a Denon AVR zone 2 configuration. Works perfectly so I now have three extra rooms, inside and outside, running 6" double speakers. I highly recommend AudioSource and Crutchfield.

Nice amp for price

I used this amplifier to drive 3 other sets of speakers off of my zone 2 of my marantz sr6012. It seems to do the job. I wish the controls were on the front however. It does have a remote at least to increase or decrease the gain value. I had trouble with auto trigger type feature so I just activate it from the switch in front. So it works as i thought it would but 4 stars since controls in back.

Pros: Decent sound and power

Cons: Controls in back
