Re: Arcade questions that don't deserve a thread

LS-55-01 https://www.slagcoin.com/joystick/attributes_brands.html#LS-55 That's a great link. I picked up a couple of refurb Seimitsu's recently, both had LS-33 on identical PCBs, both were described as different models and both use identical bodies, microswitches and PCBs / gates. Only the mounting...

Re: Step-down for cab

I still have a bunch of 220-240v -> 100-120v maplin style stepdowns. I think previous owners of my cabs used them, but I'm still fearful of blindly pumping 120v into 100v rated Japanese spec PSU's, sound amps and monitors. Some posts have stated 120v is well within 'tolerance' levels for a 29" Japan...

Re: Jamma

Usually it is only needed to have 2x 5V & 2x GND cables. These are the main 'power' lines that most game PCBs use so it can help to make sure they have more wires or thicker wire that the other connections on your JAMMA loom. It is mainly for older, larger and more power-hungry game PCBs.. and bootl...

Re: New Astro City Power Supply Queries

Cool, cheers for the info on the volume pot. I've seen the ones on ebay yes - and considered replacing with a 'Y' model that's on sale or potentially upgrading to the large (and expensive) NVS-4000 which has stereo audio. However, I'd be buying a 2nd hand mildly rusty unit to refurb regardless, and ...
