Title: making a console expansion unit, how would this audio amplifier work?
Post by: macabre on October 18, 2010, 01:25:34 PM
I'm making a special expansion unit for one of my favorite game consoles, mostly all hardware mods for a console that has unreliable hardware (so when its parts inevitably fail as they tend to do, new mods won't have to be repeated).

I want to make the sound quality of the system better. Hopefully noticeably superior to what is typically assumed normal.

I saw this;

And am very tempted, but I'm not sure if it will fit in the shell I have for the expansion unit.

I'm guessing that is the enhancement I want, but I'm worried about the quality of that device. The entire idea behind my expansion unit is to have a permanent piece of hardware that NEVER fails, but that tube in the amplifier might go out?

What do you guys think?
