Paladone My Amp Retro MP3 and Computer Speaker – Fun little portable speaker :)

Slight distortion on full volume but just turning it down a little bit gets rid of that.

Great little amp ,just right for an iphone or ipod ,yea its only mono but hell it goes load for the size , one thing i wanted it for was for a practice amp for my guitar even tho has no guitar jack all i did was used a mini jack which came with the amp and used adapter you get with normal headphones ,and it worked with my strat and even a bass ,ok the bass wasn’t loud but gave a decant practice sound , so all in all really value for money amp , doesn’t look like a miniature marshall but was only half the price , rock on.

I bought this as a gift, they loved itdecent sound, looks really well built and feels it toowould highly recommend this as a decent gift for someone.

I bought this after *breaking* my stereo and i must say i was quite pleased and disappointed at the same time. It first seemed a very small amp in a very large box, but hearing it was a delight and reached a very good volume. Until it played one of my favourites. Knowing the song so well, i realised that this speaker was not as good as i had hoped, because it acted as one speaker that needed to be accompanied by another. What i mean is that it missed parts of the song, as if it should be playing through another speaker, like when you listen to music through one earphone. I suppose it is good value, paying about £20 for a speaker. But that is what you’re doing, buying one speaker. Now i just play music through my guitar amp (because i foolishly ignored the fact it could play music via the correct cable). So if you don’t mind only hearing certain parts of a song (before some of you leave a lame comment, yes i changed sound preferences, sound/mono etc, it always stayed the same) then this is a very good priced speaker for your mp3/laptop.

I got one years ago as a present and i was amazed at how awesome (and loud) the sound from it. I can’t talk this little speaker up enough. I got one years ago as a present and i was amazed at how awesome (and loud) the sound from it was. I haven’t seen it anywhere since and randomly decided to search for it on amazon. There’s still nothing wrong with the one that i already have after years of punishment, but i decided to buy another one just incase that day ever came. Do yourself a favour and just get one. I’ve tried many big named brand mini speakers for my ipod, but none of them go all the way up to 11 like this.

This is a good little speaker for the money. Yes the mono is annoying now and then and it does cackle like a baby but all in all. Good for the money, but only consider buying it if you just want to play music out of it when you’re doing stuff, if its for regular use with friends, find a different speaker.

Saw this while browsing through mp3 speakers and after buying the august mb300 music player. Very impressed with packaging and presentation. Having read other reviews i knew it was a mono speaker so i fished out my stereo to mono adapter. If you buy this speaker you simply must use an adapter as the sound is improved out of all recognition. Plugging it into my creative zen (you have to plug the adapter into your source device, it doesn’t work the other way round) i was very impressed once i had adjusted the output level on the mp3 player. You need to experiment with this to get the best sound. Once you do this the bass is very good for the size and midrange and treble are clear and powerful. I also tried it with a portable cd player, a phone and a laptop. It works particularly well when watching tv programmes on iplayer.

  1. Good sound works with from the manes from usb or batteries but you have to unscrew the batteri cover bit annoying. Comes with usb and audio cables that have good length to them so pretty good. Came quick as well so i got no problems with speker or amazon.

    It looks like a miniature amp. It has volume control which you balance with the volume control on the source. It has bass and treble controls that make subtle differences to the sound. It is mono not stereo but for its size that’s fine. Judging by the size and depth of the housing the speaker is a decent size and should outperform smaller speakers. It can go quite loud not party loud but loud enoughfor where and under what circumstances it would be used. It is powered by either batteries 3aa or usb lead which cuts out the batteries.

    What a bar gin for the money, very clear. What a bar gin for the money, very clear sound and no batteries to worry about as laptop supplies energy , only slight fault is the jack socket should be next to the usb socket same side of unit.

    Proscompactreasonably powerful (surprisingly). Decent audio playback quality. Can be used with laptops, phones, ipods or any device with a 3. Can be used from mains/usb power or battery meaning it can be used out and about. The bass control is effective enough (but don. Consnot suitable for a party, but can be used to fill a room easily enough. The amp itself feels very cheap and plastic, so take care. The treble control has little effect on the highs, but bass is effective enough for such a tiny device. Having owned this product for a many months now it still feels effective at playing music from mp3/laptop etc, although i have very little need for it as i have a stereo already. I do feel that if this product was taken (for instance)on a family/friends holiday it would be nice having music playing in the background at night etc.
    • Great sound from a small package. My hubby got this for me and its awesomefor such a little non-expensive speaker its brilliant. Its got plenty of punch and the bass and treble controls work as well. Runs off usb charger or aa batteries. I am happy using it for watching movies in bed from my ipad :).
