Haven't tried this out yet, since i'm moving to a new place soon. I would like to use it with my stereo receiver if it's possible. I play vinyl and Bluetooth audio through the receiver which is sent to passive bookshelf speakers with speaker wire. Any recommendations for this and for power supplies for this thing?
I got mine to work, but I can only seem to get red to display. This is on a 5v 20A bench power supply. I can't see any green LEDs, but will continue to try.

Okay! I figured it out. I used a multimeter and discovered that I was only getting power via the USB connection. Green likely required too much current to display. Also, it seemed very dim. I checked the board's power connector and there was a cold solder joint on the ground pin. After cleaning and reaffixing it to the board, it works great. I also designed a 3d printable stand and a cover for the control board which I will post links to later.

If you are having difficulty with this, check to see if you're getting continuity between the power connector pins and the board.
So, I have yet to get this thing to power on - I will be trying a third power supply as soon as I can get one - but so far, I am very unimpressed with what was advertised as an out-of-the-box finished product. Thanks for the instructional insert entirely in Mandarin - if it’s not DOA, (which it may be)I may have enough information from the pictures to get it up and running. Lame sauce MD - next time, sell me a neopixel array and an aedition, I’ll at least have the right level of expectations going in.

Thanks, SainSmart
So I was warned about this not having a power supply, but I thought it was straight-forward, I'm a newb so can someone point me in the right direction on how to get power to this board? I've been googling "low ripple dc 5v 5a power supply" but not sure what I actually need. I eventually want to mount this somewhere, so a smaller power suppply would be ideal. Thanks,
Unas
Hi Unas, You can easily get it powered on with the USB port and then connect the audio. Feel free to have a look at the manual here. http://wiki.sainsmart.com/index.php/101-50-414
Thanks, SainSmart
Hmm, I’m thinking one per channel. get Some opaque plexi to cover it and frame it out might look pretty cool. Damn, looks like MD is getting More of my money.

If you wait til near the end of the video, you'll see the same pattern as in the picture here. Also the product code is the same as on the Sainsmart website so reasonably confident now!

Look at the blue and black mouse it's the same guy as in the video in the description. Also both videos has the same model in the video title: MS3264 V3
Power supply NOT included. WTF?!

That's a really good point... The last few months there are more and more really cheap chinese products in here...
Man. That's super annoying that there's an extra LED column on the far right :(
