Quoted from tadowhere:

Got e-mail from Analogue NT stating the following:
Analogue Nt Units in Stock
The Analogue Nt sold out early this year. As we are finishing up assembly and preparing for shipping, we ended up with a handful of extra units. These units are available for sale on the store page now. We have Classic, Black, Blue and Gold units available.
If you can add it to your cart and checkout, there is a unit available. If it is sold out, you won't be able to add to cart. These are the last of the Analogue Nt units, so don't miss out!! Purchase here.
I immediately went to the site (2 mins after I got email, on my phone) and tried getting the classic - sold out, Black - sold out, Blue - sold out, GOLD BINGO went to cart and checked out so now I wait for it to arrive. So these sold out in minutes, who knows how many they had though? I missed out on the pre-order both times so was shocked to get another chance! Still $716.49 for a NES is a tough to pill, I cannot tell the wife Anyone else grab one earlier today?

I'm just waiting for the HDMI nes kit that kevtris is just about to release. Same technology as the NT but not a million dollars.

#203 3 years ago

I remember when I checked out the site in November when I first heard about it. I really wanted the famicom colored one but decided to wait. I wasn't able to get one before they sold out.

Purple Drank (Sizzurp) NT- wish mine came with the clear bottom like this batch from run #2.

#207 3 years ago

The clear bottom blows. It makes the whole thing feel chinsy when you pick it up. It's not a thick piece of lexan, it's thin bendy plastic.

Looks like Nintendo has a 60 buck HDMI NES counter to the Analogue NT.

#209 2 years ago

Nah, while that's cute and all - the real counter to the Analogue NT is the RetroUSB AVS. Shipping in September, $185!

You can only play the games built into it. It won't play your existing collection. And it also won't use use your old controllers (different plug).
If anything it's an answer to the Flashback Retro consoles (Atari VCS, Colecovision, and intelivision)

correct. the only advantage is that the controllers can also be used with the wii and wii-u

that AVS looks tight!

Correct, this is the way to go. I've known that guy for years.

#214 2 years ago

I bought an original modified rgb nes, and an everdrive, also bought a small crt tv to go with it, such cool nostalgic fun! I can't wait to build another cabinet for this nes...

Months back I built an smb3 arcade that featured an original nes... I only had it a few weeks before it found its new owners.

I'm skipping the analogue and getting this. more features and not a million dollars: http://www.retrousb.com/index.php?cPath=36&osCsid=dc0b71e8606f7c5f51c65d641cbec1d2

#217 2 years ago

the analogue nt mini isn't that great in my opinion. only $50 cheaper than the original? what set the analogue nt apart was that it was an actual board set with the same [salvaged] chips from famicom's. the mini just has an FPGA in it (which I believe is probably what the retrousb has. and it's weird that nowhere in the email announcement for the mini do they actually mention that the case is milled from a block of aluminium like the original was

additionally, the retrousb unit is 720p which is a factor 3x the resolution of the famicom/nes. 1080p is not an even multiplier so the image is going to be slightly dithered

#218 2 years ago

the new retrousb AVS looks pretty bitchin'

I've got one on order...Gonna stick an Everdrive N8 in there and never open the flap again

Interesting, is there any practical difference?

#221 2 years ago

I'm not sure, but in my opinion, I can't see how they justify that hefty price tag for the "mini" when it's basically just an emulation box like that others out there.

for me, (even though I couldn't see spending the $500 on the original), the cool part was that you were getting a "real" famicom/nes. they even restricted the number of units that they produced because they salvaged and included the audio chip set from the famicom disc unit. famicom disc titles like the original "legend of zelda" had a much fuller soundtrack, than their cartridge counterparts

How do you know the mini isn't using Famicom parts? I heard that it was.

As far as the RetroUSB AVS goes, it's not an emulation box. It's a FPGA "simulation" of a NES and is playing the carts legit, unlike the Retron which is an emulator dumping the rom.

#223 2 years ago

"emulation", "simulation"... call it what you like. if the hardware isn't the same, then it's just like a pc/raspsberry pi running an application

I haven't read too much about the mini, but I do recall seeing them post that the reason why the original was limited to [x] units was due to the fact that they only had access to [x] famicom disk systems to vulture the parts from. that circuit board was basically a re-working of nintendo's.

and while it's true that they may have had another year to gather up more FDSs from the 2nd hand stores in japan, unless they've managed to source more than 100-200 at rock bottom prices. plus, if the mini is just an FPGA, did they program it to use the actual audio chipset from the FDS and is it included on this new board? answers to these questions and more are things I do not possess the information

the AVS has real nintendo NOS power and reset buttons though

AVS is not like an emulator or pi. It's playing the cart, no lag.

I ordered the Analogue NT Mini and may get the RetroUSB AVS as well. You can never have too many NES systems!

#228 2 years ago

I have a few NES's as well...

Zelda, Mega Man Top Loader and a Castlevania one made from Lego's and it's completely functional.

Any chance you're using it on a 4k tv? Wondering what it looks like. I'm not willing to spend 400-700 on the NT, but I'd at least consider 200 on the AVS.

I'm using a 1080p projector. My friend is using a 4K and I think that messes with the scanlines a bit (makes them less even) on his, but I dunno if that's something that happens on all 4K TVs.

Here are a few pics of the AVS on my display:

Looks good, I've got a 1080p plasma as well as the 4k, so if it looks like crap on one maybe not so much on the other....just the 4k tv is more comfortable to play long stretches on.

#233 2 years ago

Are you playing the games off of original cartridges or off of a powerpak cartridge? I'm wondering if it's worth getting one. I only have 20 of my original NES cartridges and everything else I play on my htpc through emulators.

I'm using an Everdrive N8. Every game ever, pop it in - never take it out! I do have some random carts tho...everything works great!
