    “Brick Wall” customer service makes the PD3000A worthless., August 7, 2010

    I loved the value I thought I was getting with the PD3000A–excellent features for the price!

    But there was a major problem right out of the box. The right channel volume was always much lower than the left. So I figured I’d return it for repair under the warranty. (That’s what warranties are for, right?) Went to their customer service page and emailed a request for a Return Merchandise Authorization number (no RMA# and they’ll refuse delivery of the package). No response. Repeated RMA requests have been completely ignored.

    I’m sure this “Brick Wall” customer service technique cuts down on the expense of fixing their own defective products, but it makes the value of a Pyle product to me exactly $0.00.

    Buyer beware!!!

    Great Product! Work well! But not true about the actual wattage, November 5, 2009

    Product does as expected. Overall, works great! “Good power on my 150wrms bookshelf speakers!” The negative is that it is not 300wrm x 2 at 8ohms. It is really 150wrms x 2 at 8ohms or 260wrms x 2 at 4ohms and should be labeled as such instead of using false wattage for advertising. This is the reason why I have not gave it 5 stars. Sorry, I am an audiophile and am critical. For the money, you can’t beat it, but do not get 300wrms speakers or they will be underpowered!

    Pyle of crap, April 28, 2011

    I didn’t know anyone could make such a Pyle of crap. 3000 watts; more like 80 watts. My 100 watt, 15 year old Sony pushes my speakers louder, clearer and with a lot more bass. The speaker wiring terminals couldn’t be made cheaper. The main reason I wanted this unit is for the USB input so I could play my MP3s from there, but it only recognizes the first file/ playlist and I can’t select my other files. I tried to contact Pyle, but no response there. Instead of having one USB drive with numerous files/ playlist, I will have to have a USB drive for each playlist now. I have a $40 Wal-Mart stereo with a USB input in my vehicle and it allows me to select different files, so it’s apparently not a difficult option.

    Since this system lacks bass output, I bought a pair of Sony SA-W3000 powered subwoofers, but the subwoofer output volume control isn’t for adjusting the level of bass to your music that works in conjunction with the main volume control, but instead you have to continuously control both the main volume and subwoofer output volume controls. You can turn down the main volume, but the bass stays the same until you turn down its volume separately; how annoying is that? The remote only controls the main volume, which makes it useless, because the bass will still be pounding away.

    Also, the instructions state that when more than one pair of speakers are used, they have to be of the same wattage and impedance. I have a larger set for channel A and a smaller set for channel B; I’ll let it blow up before purchasing matching pair of speakers.

    Four of the knobs on the front are for the microphone; it would be nice if they actually controlled something important; like the music’s bass, treble, etc instead of having to go through the menu.

    The bright blue lights might actually be 3000 watts, but that isn’t an issue since I use the system in my workshop, but for home theater use it would be stupid, because the blue lights would be very distracting while trying to watch TV.

    Pyle didn’t put very much thought into their system. Could you imagine how idiotic it would be to actually use this system for a home theater; not to be able to focus on your movie because of the blinding lights and having to get off the couch and adjust the bass because the remote only adjust the normal speaker volume?

    Up-Date- Even though this unit is in my shop, I connected it to a TV so I could check out the on screen menu in hopes that I could select the files/ playlist on my USB drive. Sure enough I can, and I actually like how it shows the file and song name. If Pyle would have responded to my email regarding the USB issue I might have given two stars, but their customer service people probably didn’t know the answer either, so it was simpler to ignore me.

    Update: Feb. 2012. The Pyle of crap doesn’t work anymore. It comes on, but no sound. Sometimes if I leave it on, hours later (up to 10) it will start for no reason.
