FT: My modded and boxed Japanese SMS for a loose Mark III w/FM
« on: November 29, 2012, 02:48:59 PM »
I've been thinking about downsizing my setup somewhat and I've become interested in replacing my Japanese SMS with a Mark III plus FM unit. My SMS is in good condition and comes with the box and manual, though I hesitate to call it CIB as it doesn't have the RF switch or original AV cable. I also modded the system with S-video and dedicated composite video and audio jacks.

Aside from saving space, the other main reason why I'm interested in trading all this for a Mark III is because I'd like to tinker with the Mark III and see if I can get component video and amplified RGB out of it. I'd like both the Mark III and FM unit to be in good working condition but I will accept a non-working Mark III (with a working FM unit) plus additional cash. I don't need or want any hookups with the Mark III and I would also prefer the original controllers as I'll be including my SMS controllers with my system.

Can't help you out as I only have a JP MS and not a Mark III, but wanted to ask you about this comment:

How does a Mark III and separate FM unit save you space?

The Mark III is damn sexy looking though so I can see why you'd want to switch to it.

You willing to sell the JP SMS for cash? Been trying to get that model for a while.

I might be willing to do it but I'd like to immediately replace it with a Mark III so I still prefer a trade at this point.

The Mark III is actually significantly smaller than the SMS, I've actually seen one with the FM unit in person before and was amazed at just how tiny the thing is. And I also kinda prefer the look of the Mark III so there's that too.

EDIT: Here's some pics:
