Great sound, easy to use and just what I was waiting for. Until ...

I’ve been waiting for this echo amp to round off my multi room music. I paid a lot of money for my speakers, and listen to most of my music on them through my Harman amp, with a dot connected. When I entertain, I like to have them playing with the other echoes in my house. With this new echo amp, I could be anywhere in the house and command any of my Alexa devices to play music ‘everywhere’, and wouldn’t need to run to the cabinet to turn on my existing Harman amp. Set up was simple. It was up and running in about 20 min. The sound is much better than what the dot was sending to my other amp. I was pleasantly surprised! The app is easy to use, basic, and responsive. I was finally whole! Until, POP! Yep, sounded like a cannon fired! The issue? When the amp wakes, or sleeps, it pops my speakers!! Soooo disappointing!!! I’m returning for another, thinking this first one might be defective. I certainly hope Amazon doesn’t think that is normal. It’s NOT! That alone, is my reasoning for the one star. If I continued to use this first one, it would blow my speakers. NOT GOOD! We’ll see what happens with the replacement. If it works, I will update my review and change this to five stars.
