This lot includes a refurbished PC Engine IFU Combo, with official power supply, composite/stereo cables (not pictured), RGB scart cable, turbo PC Engine pad, Arcade Card PRO, Fatal Fury 2 and Crest of the Wolf games.

I bought and had serviced the IFU, CD-ROM and PC Engine separately. From the best of memory the IFU has been recapped, the CD-ROM had the gear and laser replaced, something was greased and it was all tuned/calibrated.

I had the PC Engine modified for RGB output and a region mod. The channel switch is now the region switch andthe RGB jack is in the old RF out spot. When I had the mods done, I explained how my rgb-to-component transcoder at the time didn't output audio and that I wanted to take audio from the IFU. I don't know if the cable was wired differently, as I discovered now while testing that I couldn't get my framemeister to recognize the signal and hooking the scart cable to my new transcoder which does output audio, the sound that gets passed along is almost mute and tinny. My guess is that it's just the cable, but I'm just providing as much info as possible. The image quality transcoded to component on a crt is perfect. Super crisp with vibrant and correct color.

This PC Engine also works with my Turbo Everdrive version 1.1 and 2.2. It typically seems that a region mod can prevent this from happening.

I've never had any problems with the CD-ROM performance except for one game which had the redbook bgm cut out during stages. However the same game from the other region worked fine.

The included controller's I button does spring like it should, but is still responsive. It probably just needs to be opened up to have the spring uncoiled or something.

Both games play flawlessly.


$500 USD shipped to U.S. and Canada.


Here is video of various things being tested. I ran Fatal Fury 2 to show the game playing fine, but it is infamous for its long load times. Towards the end of the video you can see Gate of Thunder loading quickly. Only the games mentioned above are included. The Everdrives are not included either.

Works as a receiver and kaoroke machine and comes with speakers, but you can line in any kind. The PC Engine kaoroke software was made for this. If you feel that PC Engine chip sound doesn't have enough bass you can turn it up.

This is so badass, the fact that you've still got the speakers and original box makes it even cooler.  I've wanted one of for awhile so the Mega Karaoke wasn't lonely but I didn't realize they'd gotten so expensive!

Good luck with the sale man!

Yeah I'm with you, this thing looks sweet with the full Karaoke set up.  You don't see such styling anymore...

I'm surprised more people don't know about the ROM ROM amp. I guess my only question would be (never owning one before): How does the quality compare to a regular amp/speaker setup?

I know sometimes older equipment are made to way better standards than newer stuff (made with cheaper parts, etc), so it would be interesting to know how these are built!
