Best Sega genesis 2 A/V Cable?

Recommended Posts

Need to get one and I know you can't buy Sega brand anymore. Did some searching and most of the third party ones are half and half on good or bad. Does anyone have a good suggestions of what's best and where to buy? Thanks in advance for any help with this

It's really a crap shoot sadly if you just want composite A/V cables.  Most, if not all, after-market cables are wired incorrectly and provide only mono audio (left channel wired to the mono pin and right channel to the left channel pin).  It's not a difficult thing to fix on your end if you have the right parts and tools.

 

If you aren't comfortable with doing the work yourself, you could probably ask someone here to either mod a cheap composite cable or build you a decent one.

I recently bought this exact one with very satisfactory results.  Compared to the original RF cable the colors and graphics were notably more vivid on my 32" Toshiba CRT using this.  Remember too that if you have a model 1 Genesis you would need a different cable.
