    "I am already impressed by this amp. It's loud enough, multiple options (presets) to choose from and I'm not even close to being done exploring. The secondary jack makes it easy to plug in your phone or audio device to play along with practice tracks or any other songs you want to learn."

    "Everyone knows that typical laptop speakers are not so great. This is especially true if you are an audiophile and need to have more crisp, clear, and defined music patterns. This little device packs a powerful punch in amplifying your sound and it really helps. I like it because it makes my crappy laptop speakers sound actually decent!"

    "You have to see the HT-5R amp to believe how small it is. It's a hoot! I keep my old Fender by my desk, and freak people out by playing through this little tiny thing. The sound is fantastic! The price is a bit high, but for the novelty, I think it's worth it."

    " It's not a headphone amp, rather a guitar amp! For what it is this thing is actually pretty nice. It has a retro look to it which can be good or bad depending on the person. The sound is good for being a mini amp. People need to realize that it's a mini amp and to not expect insane sound from it. I don't think there is really anything better on the market in this price range for a portable amp."
