    Morning folks, I'm living in Ireland and I'm looking to import an American woody console - either 4-switch or 6-switch (but preferably 6-switch) Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi there, sorry for the delayed response; will DM you now.

  4. I'm living in Ireland, which is in the PAL region and (like the UK), our standard electricity supply is 230 volt AC. We also use the UK-style "Type G" plugs for our electrical appliances. I'm considering importing an NTSC model of the Atari 5200. Would appreciate if anyone could tell me what the power requirements are for this model of the console? Are they the same are the power requirements for the UK/PAL models? Would my best option to get this thing up and running be to plug the original U.S. power adaptor into a step-down converter/transformer, or are there any modern replacement power supply units that would allow me to plug it directly into an Irish/UK wall outlet? I don't anything about powering up this console, except to avoid the version that uses the combined AV/power cable... Thanks!

I'm considering importing an NTSC 4-switch Woodgrain model of the Atari 2600, with Tim Worthington's RGB mod.

  6. Oh not at all; I fully acknowledge that no sane person would want them setup all the time - this is just a fun project for me 🙂Will definitely look into replacement power supplies where possible. Would you happen to have any reccomendations for decent converters? The only Japanese devices I have currently hooked up are relatively modern and can just use bog-standard travel adapters. Also do you mind me asking why the adapter from AliExpress looks dodgy? Many thanks
  7. I'm living in Ireland, which is in the PAL region and (like the UK), our standard electricity supply is 230 volt AC. We also use the UK-style "Type G" plugs for our electrical appliances. I'm looking to hook up six Japanese consoles to my (otherwise mainly PAL) gaming setup: 1) Sega Saturn 2) Panasonic 3DO 3) Sega Master System 4) SNK Neo Geo CD 5) NEC PC-FX 6) Pioneer Laseractive My goal is keep them hooked up and ready to go 24/7, via various switch boxes and AV upscalers, and I'm happy that I can pull that off. But the power networking is a different kettle of fish... I'm not particularly knowledgable about the basic principles of electricity (apart from my youtube/wikipedia research....) and have no idea if any variants of these consoles (Japanese or otherwise) can be hooked up with multi-voltage power supply units, so I'm assuming that each of these consoles would normally require individual voltage converters. My question is... would it be possible to connect all six consoles to a power distribution unit like this one from Amazon Japan (https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B081R7GWZP/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_Jz3vFb1H0W2QQ?fbclid=IwAR2Al3whciDH2qdd5VKmds1a5CGVJW7pL1N_8Y9CnQiaUU47M2y6o4_MTDE) and plug the output from this unit into a 100V-to-230V voltage converter (which would in turn be plugged into my standard Irish wall outlet). The PDU in the link looks like it has individual switches on it, so only the console being actively used would be getting a current. Would greatly appreciate any feedback or recommendations for changes to this setup idea.
