I’m looking at doing a switch up of the three pins I have. Basically, I’m looking at selling all three and buying a single pin along with a sit down arcade cab running some kind of mame system. Though I’m fairly confident in my Pinball purchases and repair, I don’t know much about arcades. My arcade room is basically a bedroom in our house so space is limited. If I wanted to, I could squeeze four pins without it looking too bad.

But, I just want to go for a one pin and a sit down arcade for now. I know I could save room with an upright but the cocktail would look nicer.

Anyway, I’m looking for recommendations on cocktail systems from reputable sellers. There was a guy at this past year’s Allentown Show in the front who had some nice cabinets but I didn’t get a card.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A cocktail cabinet isn't the best choice for a mame setup. There isn't enough room for all the buttons, joysticks and trackball needed to play the games as they were intended and gives the whole game a better look and feel. LEDs in the buttons is a nice touch also.A full size cabinet with is the way to go. I have a Game Elf 412 in 1 installed in a vintage Space Invaders Deluxe cabinet with a four way and 8 way joystick,4 action buttons and a 2 1/4 inch trackball.
