Scythe Kama Bay AMP 2000 Rev.B Review - Final Thoughts

Final Thoughts

In addition to its great build quality, multiple inputs, and elegant blue-LED decibel-meters, the Yamaha chip performs, most importantly, very well.  Static and distortion are minimal, even at high volumes.  I tested both with Kro Kraft Rev. B, Kro Kraft Mini, and also with headphones and earbuds.  The distortion seems to be primarily limited by the sound driver itself, as distortion became apparent at different levels with each speaker system or headphones I was listening to.  At higher volumes there was some distortion, but all-in-all it did quite well.  In comparison with a standard headphone jack on an integrated sound card or laptop, the distortion was minimized.  This is largely due to the high quality Yamaha IC chip in the Kama Bay AMP 2000 Rev. B.

Overall, the Kama Bay AMP 2000 Rev. B is very well put together, it's built well, it looks good, it has versatility in that it can be mounted in a case or used on a desk, and also has great sound quality.  It also has a very small footprint and large rubber feet which will keep it in place, and from taking up much space on your desktop.
