Cheap, cool & compact – VMA2016 2*10W Audio Amplifier Evaluation Module (EVM) Board Reviews

Pros:
I`ve build one in a pc eliminating an external amplifier (I hate pc-speakers). The board is connected right on the PC`s 12V supply, which is a bit noisy unfortunatly. But by setting down the gain to 6dB (putting jumpers G1 & G0 both to Vr) this is not a real problem anymore. Results may differ in another setting though.
This is the reference design stated in the datasheet of the VMA2016, http://v-module.com/file/20100504103516-DS_VMA2016.pdf
Cons:
Subsceptible to supply-noise, terminals a bit flimsy, data should be included, but see "Pros".
Other:
Bottomline:
Cheap, cool & compact, ideal for my purpose but you can sure think of many others.
If youre into electronics, you can`t afford not buying one ;) You wont believe the noise this little thing can produce even on 12Volts...
