As many others mentioned, just explain to the agent what it is. It would not hurt to bring along some documentation/photos to explain it as well. Though, with air travel these days, you should be prepared for the seizing of anything.

I am weary of the TSA people, so if an amp is to be carried on-board, it should be one that looks quite commercial a product.
Agree that one shouldn't try to take a cMoy onto a commercial flight.
Not sure if it's OK in checked in luggage - just not sure. Those bags do get examined.
And someone finds this small odd piece of electronics 'disguised' as something familiar...
If I did try to bring mine onto a commercial flight, I'd put it in checked baggage wrapped in
some papers (with pics) describing what it is - from e.g. the JDS website and elsewhere.
Another option, which I guess could be useful with a more expensive piece of gear due to
the time and effort involved, is to go through the procedures required to bring "high value" items
along in your checked-in luggage. People who travel to trade shows with high priced samples,
for instance, are familiar with these procedures.
