Very good, probably best for professionals.
This amp did a really good job for me. I loved the separate gain controls for UHF and VHF. I did need to adjust gain on both antennas to achieve the best SNR. Having a way to measure the signal quality (SNR) and not just signal strength was crucial for me.
I had an old RCA booster that stopped working so I did some searching and found people bragging about the Televes booster, so I bought it. First; wasn't happy with having to cut off all of my F connectors on my roof. Then, wasn't impressed with the quality. My old set up i was able to receive two channels 30 miles away but wasn't with the Televes booster, so I replaced one of my directional antenna with a bigger one, and that was the only way to receive it. I would have been better off trying to find another RCA or even better a channel master booster.
Did the job. Signal improved!
Boosted signal to all TVS (as advertised). Got this to make up for splitter loss that went to 4 TVS. The design is pretty neat too. Having the coax go directly into the amp (no connector) was different, but i read it saves the signal loss that happens at a connector. Also this thing can combine three antennas. I probably didnt need that feature, but i found the other televes amp (536040) for less would have worked fine.
