Scythe is announcing the availability of the amplifier Kama Bay Amp Pro. Like the earlier models, this model can be both used on its own and inside a common PC case, occupying two 5.25 inch bays. It is furthermore featuring a brand new infrared remote control as well as a front USB port, allowing media devices such as MP3 players or smartphones to be charged.
The Kama Bay Amp Pro is drawing its power from a MAXIM MAX 98400A IC, enabling a continuous maximum output of 24 watts per channel at 8 Ω (48 W total). At the same time a wide frequency range from 20 Hz to 20 kHz can be covered by the new product. Analog signals are fed in from the back side, using one of the three RCA connectors or from the front, using a 3.5 mm mini-Plug. Users are able to switch between the four separate source channels conveniently. All RCA connectors and speaker terminals (support banana plugs) are gold plated to prevent rust, which leads to better conductivity.
The Kama Bay Amp Pro is painted in black. Elements such as buttons and knobs as well as some corners received a special silver finish. Additional visual highlights are the two analog meters which apply a retro touch to the classy design. Users are able to choose between a total of seven colors for the background illumination. In addition it is possible to completely shut down the illumination, if necessary. Directly beneath the analog meters, all the main control elements are located. Grid knobs have been used for treble, bass and volume control to assure convenient handling.
The class D amplifier is powered by the supplied AC adapter and comes with a special PCI bracket for use inside a PC chassis. Furthermore, all required cables and connectors are supplied with the Kama Bay Amp Pro.
Scythe Kama Bay Amp Pro (item no. SDAR-3000) is available as of today for 84.00 euros.
