Scythe Kama Bay Mini Amp Review

Along with their new Kro Kraft Mini speakers, Scythe has released their Kama Bay Mini Amp to accompany them.  This innovative amp may be internally mounted in a 3.5-inch slot in your case (should fill the void that your old floppy drive used to have), with hardware included to keep everything contained internally.
