Hi!

I really like their aesthetic as they are, but thanks for letting me know.

Cheers,

I converted the two speakers into one speaker by removing the fake speaker and putting the two real ones together. Do that for each side so you have 4 real speakers and 2 amps and its a decent little set for cheap.

You know that all speakers are real, right?

2 of them are active speakers and the other 2 are passive speakers (used to enhance bass) :D

A setup in the works. I have my own custom arcade dual player stick and route the signal through a raspberry pi (left) and two teensy controllers
as 2 joysticks mouse and keyboard into the teensy.
The next step is to put the entire PI/Teensy setup into its own case (sort of a HID box) and in the long run all this should come together in an 80s like homecomputer design. But one step after the other.

Is this the Complete kit from Antonio Villena?

What is the conesus of this build? I see they are sold out, but I'm tempted to wait it out.

Thank you

That custom board looks nice indeed, though it's unfortunately plagued with "cables coming out of all directions" syndrome like all the others. If going out of the way to design a custom board, might as well solve this problem as well. It may require a larger board and thus a bit more cost, but it'd be worth it and provide a real competitive edge.

Is that in response to the one pictured above your post? If yes, then this is a custom board made by Antonio?

And thank you reflex for your response.

I know I'm noobing out here, but I'm past tinkering, and am happy to pay a markup for something like this if it just means it just works. This doesn't appear to be missing any major functionality, is that correct?

Great thread - some awesome custom stuff in here.

The only issue is the IOUSB board is unpowered, it is drawing from the OTG port on the DE10-Nano. That means most low power devices will work fine (gamepads/bluetooth/wifi) but you won't be able to power, say, a USB SSD or HDD off of it without that having it's own external power. You also need to do a small solder job to use the built in power switch.

Aside from that, it's really sharp and I used a right angle HDMI connector to create less of a 'cables coming out in all directions' look.

Awesome - thank you all.

I just happened to load up Antonio's site and saw 1 in stock - about 5 minutes later and a few dollars spent - it now reads Out of Stock. :D

I am not sure why this guy has a website; 90% of everything is always out of stock for months (looking at you JAMMA adapter) and when you are lucky enough to see anything in stock, it just disappears right away, since he seems to make them one at a time... On top of having most of his stuff ONLY working on his variation of MiSTer and not on the official one... Maybe this guy hates to make money, too bad, since I like the design a lot.

The cases come into stock a lot. I'm waiting for his JAMMA solution to have support for full two player and the kick harness before jumping, but yes that one is in stock less frequently.

The design is worth waiting for, IMO no one else has come close in terms of making an attractive device that looks good in a entertainment center.

I totally agree, that's a work of art. I'd have more USB on the front but meh, if you are wireless it won't matter.

Looks great, but not really SNAC friendly.
Glad to see a design with no USB tentacles spawning from every side, like the original USB board. Maybe you would have been just fine taking a generic OTG USB hub as a base... And make room for a WD passport HDD. Still a strong and cool design at the end of the day; congrats.

did you use some standard DIY case?
Color is unusual and thus it looks fresh.
