Default Dayton Amplifier

I don't need upteen channels. I have two speakers and maybe, in the future, I may expand i to a subwoofer and that is only maybe. But I want it to power a turntable and maybe a tuner.

I'm looking, right now, at Dayton, specifically the APA 150. I need any and all opinions on quality of product and quality of service if necessary. Thanks.

Hi, I see from the rear view that it has a fan, and that justifies for the less space ( footprint) but it might be stressfull to hear the fan - nonsense ! 'cos the fan activates when the heatsink is hot so when you hear it at very low volume the fan shouldn't move.
It's just a normal class AB amplifier incorporating the volume control and the switchable lowpass filter. No switch for selecting between different inputs, only one line level input. For a turntable you would need to get a phono pre amplifier. And swap the cables when you want to change the source.
I own a Cambridge phono preamp ( model 540 P ) for MM cartridges and it performs quite well.

Thanks for your input. The turntable I have has a built in phono preamp and I use the Line instead of the Phono. I'm looking to upgrade the amplifier and Dayton is one of the possibilities.
