    Prices are for items shipped inside of the USA. Other countries may have additional shipping cost. Payment accepted via paypal. Please do not add a note in paypal mentioning anything about mods or similar terminology.

    Amp now has a THS7374 (with LPF bypassed) for amplification instead of a THS7314. THS7374 produces a sharper image than the THS7314. Also, most other amps for sale do not account for the non standard output of the PC Engine/TG16 and will have too bight of an output with washed out colors. This amp has proper output resistance and the display device will see it as 75 ohms. The amp comes with a piece of double side tape attached to the bottom.

    amp = $20 shipped
    amp + connector + euro scart cable = $40 shipped (add $10 for sync strip cable)

    Amp includes 2 4.7uf ceramic caps at no extra charge in case you want to do Viletim's jailbar fix.

    Available are PCB mount 8 pin DIN (RGB pins pre trimmed and labeled) for consoles like the CoreGrafx, Turbo Duo, etc.. or circular panel mount 8 pin DIN for IFU-30, Tennokoe 2, etc...

    Panel Mount's data sheet with dimensions: http://www.cui.com/product/resource/sd-xxls-series.pdf

    mmmonkey has a good guide on how to install the PCB mount jack:

    Pics of sync strip cable board was designed by Helder. Shown below before attaching cable.

    (extra 2 wires on back are for 2 grounds that were missed on the board)

    I can also make the cable JP21 upon request. Also can make an 8 pin mini din cable upon request, but there is not much demand for those so not going to keep any premade after I run out of what I have made already.

    I recently received some of these from mickcris and can vouch for both their quality and his service.

    Wow. You should have asked a European for help. That said, Newark is Farnell, who sell Multicomp - the standard connector used here, really. If your cable isn't too thin, you might not be using a thick enough cable. They should fit a standard multicore AV cable fine.

    I'm good with the ones I ordered. I did not want any more of the Multicomp brand connectors (which is what I had been using). Since I am using 8 conductor cable with molded din connectors, I cannot change the cable size. These ones seem like better quality anyways than the Multicomp and they were cheaper. Just I had to order a ton of them. I'm sure I will get rid of the extras eventually.

    Sadly, I don't think there's any such thing as a decent SCART connector any more... if there ever was. It was a flawed design from the start, quality-wise. If they're nice connectors, though, I'm sure they'll sell ;)

    You might want to consider doing smaller bundles at a higher price, though (i.e. quantity discount) - the only people who'll buy 50 are those who will make and sell cables. No casual gamer needs 50 SCART leads - you'd be hard pressed (unless you're running variants) to find 50 different consoles! ;) And that's effectively your market here. Say bundles of 5 or 10.... even if it was $10 for 5, you'd probably sell them quicker.

    thanks. I will probably do that soon. Just was trying to see if anyone wanted a large quantity (like console modders) first before breaking them up into smaller quanitites. I did not say I would not sell them in smaller quantities, only that I prefer to sell in the bags of 50 they came in. :)

    edit:
    just updated my ebay auctions with lesser quantities cause why wait i guess. if anyone wants any other quantity, let me know. nothing less than 5 though please.
