Exactly as described.

I'm now afraid to set it to the "louder" option after having installed it normally and seeing how much louder it became normally.

Don’ buy for GBA SP

The cleanamp audio amplifier, while a good idea, just doesn’t work for a GBA SP. The speaker you would need is too thick for a GBA SP causing the buttons to be loose and may even crack your shell. Even after taking some flush cutters to the rim, the speaker, it was still too thick. When I contacted support they told me I bought the wrong one, yet, the speaker in the picture of the installation instructions is the one I bought. The SP speaker has no cables so it wouldn’t work for this mod. Also the sound quality with this amp is horrible, even with the dehum/de hiss kit. Buy, instead, helder’s audio amp mod as it fits perfectly in the shell and works with the original speaker

We are sorry you are unhappy with your purchase. I believe support has since cleared this up with you and resolved the matter.

could have been better

Had lifts in the traces. So, I scraped further back onto to the flex cable and soldered the wires directly to the area I scraped. The sound isn't much louder even after recap and 680uf 6.3v cap upgrade as well. I fear it's the way I had to install so I will have to order a new one when i get the extra money.

Missing channels and fuzzy noise

(Game Boy DMG) Maybe I did something wrong or my soldering skills aren't on par, but I ended up with missing sound channel(s) and at louder volume it was fuzzy and crackling. Would be nice if it came with the required wiring or maybe pre-soldered to the amp. Uninstalled it. Maybe a better version will be released in the future.

I'm sorry to hear of the issue! Please message us at support@handheldlegend.com so we may get this resolved for you.

Bump It Up!

Gave me more than enough noise throughout the room. Way louder than my Sony Xperia 1 iii phone. I had mine mounted on the back like you would with a retromodded amp.

Excellent Amplifier

Amplifier works great. It is VERY small though, which isn't a downside to the quality of the product, plus you want it small to fit in the case. The small size does mean the install is a little more demanding as you need steady hands and more specialized soldering tools.
