...uhh, stuff. This ...thing arrived on my doorstep today, and was promptly unpacked and placed on top my Sony receiver for hooking up and testing. The first step was to plug it into an unused outlet in my 120VAC surge supressor - with the Pyle turned off, of course. At least I thought the Pyle was turned off... or maybe the Pyle was sort of off, sort of on. The problem was: the Pyle has the unique ability to remain off on the left channel, while still partly on over on the right channel. Seven of the ten sliders on that channel remained dimly lit no matter what buttons I pressed! A definite problem with the circuitry, and one which I consider a potential fire hazard. Hence my promptness in writing this review. BEWARE of this equalizer!
On a humorous note, the back of the Pyle is labeled "Designde [sic] in the USA, Engineered in Japan". Sure, I really believe that...any Japanese high school graduate could have done better than this. This equalizer is so light that all the packaging it came in weighed almost as much as it did - an expensive box of air! I have seen some pretty shoddy audio products over the years, but this one is truly in a class all by itself.
Back it goes tomorrow to Amazon.com - a quality company that shouldn't be jeopardizing their good name by dealing with rubbish like this!
