Scythe has released its first 2.0 stereo speakers and an improved version of the Class D amplifier:
Scythe Group is officially announcing the release of the first 2.0 stereo speakers set and the improved version of the Class D amplifier. With the goal to develop a Hi-Fi solution with a very affordable price tag, Scythe engineered a set of plain and classy speakers by the name Kro Craft. By this Scythe is taking another step towards enriching the audio market even more by simultaneously releasing the improved Kama Bay Amp Kro.

New Kama Bay Amp Kro is coming with various innovations in inside as well as outside of the unit. Core of the new unit is the former known Yamaha YDA138(D-3) IC which was now placed on an overworked PCB which results in higher sound precision. Outside of the Kama Bay Amp Kro has been turned black to further match it to average home theatre environments and Kro Craft Speaker. On the underground new isolated feet were placed which are making the unit more stable and solid.

Kro Craft Speakers are targeting music-loving users who are not willing to pay too much money for good sound quality. Well aligned aluminum concave bass / mid-range speaker together with a soft dome tweeter are perfectly matched and cover a frequency range between 58 Hz and 20 kHz with up to 2*20 W input. To especially cover the low frequency range Scythe developed the "Flow Guided Bass Reflex Structure" which allows a more authentic reproduction of low notes. Gold plated connectors are improving the signal quality and it is furthermore possible to use "Banana Connectors". This set was tuned to provide high musical enjoyment for a low budget.

Estimate shipments of these new products are scheduled for 19th August 2009. Kro Craft Speaker (SCBKS-1000) will be available MSRP of 42.0 EUR (excluding VAT) or US$ 54.80 (excluding TAX). Same MSRP is expected for the Bay Amp Kro (SDA-1100). Furthermore there will be a set of both which is called Kro Craft Speaker PLUS (SCBKS-1000P) and will be available at MSRP of 79.00 EUR (excluding VAT) or US$ 99.80 (excluding TAX).
