    Default CIB MSX2+ HBF1XDJ system + flashcart and PC Engine systems

    This MSX2+ system supports FM sound and plays both disks and carts. I bought it last year from a dealer who refurbishes them and the belt had been freshly replaced when I got it. Comes complete (I'm told) in box with the pictured books/docs.

    Comes with the MegaFlashRom SSC+ 2 slot SD + 512K RAM cart (retail price = $170). This is the full featured flashcart which allows you to not only play cart and disk game roms, but it also upgrades the RAM of your MSX system. Not pictured is the flashcart's box, which is also included. Altogether, I believe that this combo will play all MSX based software except the Turbo R enhanced mode supported by few games.

    Also comes with Hudson's Joycard Super II controller, composite/stereo cables and scart RGB cable.

    I'm no MSX expert and this setup was my attempt to get into MSX gaming on real hardware and I wanted the best overall setup I could find (I paid about $700 for everything). Feel free to correct anything I've said about support and such. I wasn't able to figure out how to get the flashcart (which I bought new) to play games, although I've since heard that there is a much friendly operating system to use with it. I got a different operating system working fine, just running games from that was my issue. My disk games (not included!) play fine though. Picture quality is amazing through RGB/component and the Joycard is the perfect pad.

    Price is $450 + shipping by Canadapost.

    CoreGrafx II with component-modded Super CD-ROM, official SCD power supply, CoreGrafx II pad, official AV cable and SuperGrafx power cable (so you can use a SuperGrafx with the SCD and only one power supply).

    Here is what the forum member I bought it from had to say about it:

    It has never failed to play a single CD be it an original game, pressed bootleg, homebrew, burned game, you name it. The only thing wrong with it is the LED doesnt come on when a disc is playing, but it hasn't bothered me enough to fix it.

    Since I have owned it, I have replaced all the capacitors and installed Turbokon's V1 component video PCB. I used a 8-Pin DIN socket in the place of the factory socket, so an original AV cable (which is included) can be used instead of the custom component cable if you want.

    Here are screenshots capture from component off of the SCD and from composite off of the CoreGrafx II while running the same game at the same time:











    720p 60fps video capture on YouTube. Includes switch between component and composite towards the end.



    I'm very picky with picture quality and am not keeping this as I prefer mickris' RGB mods to turbokon's component board. The pots should be tweaked to get emulator perfect color and the top edge of the screen looks brighter than the rest, but gets cropped out altogether on some TVs. Still about as nice a picture as you'll get from anything other than mickris' RGB mod and infinitely better than anything doujindance does.

    My last crt had a number of problems and after replacing it with a Sony Wega, it works just fine when passed through a component splitter and looks great.

    It works with the TED v1, but not the v2.2 I have.

    It came with a spare laser lens that I can't find at the moment. If I do find it before packaging it up, I'll include it.

    $330 + shipping by Canada Post.

    I would nab that Core Grafx, but shipping to PR would kill me.

    If I get home too late tonight to check, I'll get a shipping quote on Saturday for sure.
