    Default behold its beauty



    1 high definition model 1 Genesis
    1 RF cable
    1 A/C adapter
    1 red button 3 button controller
    1 white button 3 button controller

    $20

    owning what may be the best condition existing example of a high definition Sega Genesis (spare for overpriced NIB systems on eBay)

    Priceless


    Every single connection is super clean and super tight, it makes me wonder if the thing has even been played before.

    The volume is all the way down. Why do you hate the Genesis sound so much?

    A real Genesis fan would ONLY have the volume all the way up.

    Melf, the man who created this very forum, does not own a Model 1?

    I think you need to ban yourself.

    Too true. I have a modded model 2 that's been with me since '96, but it's not the same.

    A Model 2 can never take the place of a Model 1, modded or not.

    It has done so at my place... my MD1 sees much less use. If I'd bother to add headphone possibility to my MD2, there will really be no reason for MD1, except for the looks.... I want MD1 VA7... MD2 inside MD1 shell .......


    This Genny looks great... RF cables should all be burned though

    thanks for reminding me, actually, I was going to do a photoshop and make "10" "11" so my speakers can go up to 11 (Spļnal Tap FTW). I would do it for real if this thing wasn't so amazingly perfect that it would be a criminal act.

    I'm using RF for now until I decide whether or not to buy the official Sega cables or just get the generic ones they sell on eBay. I mean, a cable is a cable, its just a matter of how original I want to keep it. I also kind of want to have the authentic ~1990 (its a TMSS model) experience because, well, no one used A/V back then. Even with RF the picture is still stunning and hearing the sound on my dad's old stereo headphones (as seen in the picture) is mind blowing. Seriously, if you have a model 1 and don't plug in some headphones every once in a while you are doing yourself a big disservice.

    P.S. about the A/V cables, I know I can use the headphone jack to give stereo sound output (something most Genesis A/V cables lack), so is there something I could buy for cheap to be video only? I ask this because somehow or another there is a cable at the Play N Trade I work for that is just a male/male yellow video cable with an adapter at the end that works on a Genesis model 2, which leads me to believe its just something you could buy at Radio Shack.

    P.P.S. If anyone around here edits Wikipedia, feel free to use this image on the Genesis wiki for an example of a High Definition model

    Yeah, but yours is audio modded, not (only) region modded (as that's what I think Melf meant).

    That'd be great! I actually was going to ask. It's really a super sexy shot.

    OOH! Could you post pictures of your mod so we can use it for reference?
    EDIT: I winder why people are ignoring this post.

    I knew right when I saw the volume slider all the way down that it wasn't going to sit well with Joe. Thats a rookie mistake there

    shit, I knew that the second I took the picture. Its my rule that the slider stay down until the speakers are ready to go up to 11, then its on.

    I went ahead and added it to WP under the GFDL. I hope that's okay. When trying to list it as "the author gave me permission to post it at Wikipedia" it warned me that it might fall under the criteria for a speedy deletion.
