Not sure if this is what I need to play music in my garage while working on my car. I have a set of JBL 3-way floor speakers on top of my cabinets and would like to stream from my Android phone.
The speakers are currently powered by a Sony receiver/amp but it does not have BT and the reception is poor despite a large external antenna. The speakers are 70's vintage, completely rebuilt a few years ago and the receiver is 90's.
Will this unit work for my application or am I rolling the dice? Thanks,
Gary

Thanks Robnich.
I joined the drop. I can eliminate a big receiver in my garage with this unit. Hopefully it will drive the JBL's. They are 3-way speakers. I will post back once I receive the drop.

Please note the power rating of 80W per channel is for 4 ohm speakers. So if you are driving a more typical pair of 8 ohm speakers the power would be closer to 40 watts per channel. It should still be enough to drive most speakers though.

Jamie, Thanks for the reply. I think the unit will work ok. I am not looking for excessive power, just enough to be able to listen to music and podcasts while washing and detailing my car. hard to believe that a little unit like this will push big speakers but a lot has happened in electronics.

My unit arrived today. I connected it to the speakers plugged it in and turned it on. I had to turn on the NFC on my phone and connect it with the unit and then I was able to pair the BT with my phone. Not sure if that was the right way but it worked. I can stream thru my phone to the 3-way JBL speakers now. I can get plenty of volume out of the speakers so no worries there. Very happy with the unit. Old amp is going to good will.
