SOLD OUT: PCE/Turbografx RGB THS7374 amps and cables
« on: April 01, 2015, 03:16:44 AM »
Update 1/6/18:
output resistor values updated.  see here:
https://www.pcenginefx.com/forums/index.php?topic=18845.msg512644#msg512644


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.

Also available is sync stripper add-on board.  Board outputs 75 ohm sync.

amp only = $20 shipped
amp + connector + euro scart cable = $40 shipped
amp + sync strip add-on + connector + euro scart cable + $44 shipped

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:
http://www.mmmonkey.co.uk/core-grafx-rgb-mod/

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.

Here are a few pics of the amp (old style but new one is the same size) installed in a console:

All Turobgrafx and PC Engine consoles are capable of outputting RGB with a mod.  The signal is too weak though and needs to be amplified.  You can see here for more information about rgb mods and the chip that is included in this circuit:

These amps work great. Installed one in a DUO-R to be used with a framemeister X-RGB mini and no jail bars can be seen. Amazing video quality.

Amp looked well made and even had some double sided sticky tape on it for easy install.

Highly recommend :)

I have a Duo that was RGB modded by a member on here and he also made a BNC cable for me but now I want a scart cable since all my other RGB systems are scart. Can I assume that your cable will work with my Duo or is it dependent on what RGB amp was used?

depends on if they wired the din jack the same or the colors would be off

if thats the one i did, the RGB mod is standard, i just put a sync separator in the cable itself

I have 18 amps built up and ready to ship.  Not sure yet if I'm going to do anymore to sell after these though.
