    Question

    Hi all. I've just acquired my first SegaCD (CD model 2, using with a Genesis model 2 VA3) and had a technical question. When playing CD games, the audio seems to pass through to the Genesis' original AV port fine, so what's the point of the CD unit having its own red/white RCA audio out? Is the audio from the CD base higher quality than from the passthrough? Thanks for your help!

    The red and white RCA jacks are line level intended for a device that has a volume control such as a boombox, audio receiver or yes a TV.

    Edit: Yeah a Genesis model 2 has stereo audio and by adding additional jacks to the Sega CD base provided flexibility like them playing an audio compact disc you can run it to audio receiver. Also not many people back in the day would listen to their TV from a audio receiver.

    Gotcha, thanks for the quick reply. So if you use a composite cable out from the Genesis AV, is the stereo RCA from there also line-level?

    Yes the model 2's red and white plugs of the audio & video cable are line level.
