FS: Atomiswave Candy Cab with new 29" Monitor

Added: December 20th, 2019 Ended: December 30th, 2019

Item description

I know there is some arcade crossover with this group so I thought I would post this here first. This is a Japanese import 'Candy Cab' arcade cabinet by Sammy/Atomiswave. It is currently running a retropie setup but can very easily be converted back to Jamma if the buyer so desires or even all the way back to an Atomiswave system.

After I bought it, the neck broke on the original tube. So I shelled out and purchased one of the last remaining Makvision 29" flat screen tube arcade monitors for it, and it is freaking beautiful. The monitor has less than 200 hours on it, probably a lot less. I never leave it on for extended periods, only when playing it. It has a brand new custom 2 player control panel from Australia (can't remember the company), new Sanwa sticks and buttons. The power switch in the front is from an existing hole where a credit button had been installed. Overall the cab is in good shape and there are no major dents or anything. Typcial wear from a candy cab though. It has new 4" speakers with custom 3d printed mounts. The marquee is lit by an LED light strip.

These are pretty rare, especially in the midwest. I hate to sell it but I need to move some stuff and I just don't play it as much as I used to. I can take more pics if needed.

The monitor by itself was $1000 shipped and are impossible to find now.

I would rather not ship this. I can't prep it for shipping or would even know how to. The buyer can set up packing and shipping if needed, but I can't help with this. I can possibly meet within a few hours of Springfield, Mo if needed.

Saturday morning coffee bump.

I may be new to pinside, however I have worked on multiple AWSDs over the years.

My simple question is and it is important for potential buyers.

When you replaced the original monitor, did you have to retrofit the Makvision or change how it is mounted from the original? (btw Makvision is also a monitor made by Wei-Ya) Does it still have the ability to properly TATE like the original?

This cabinet and the bezel are designed so the operator can open the monitor hood, remove the monitor bolts and bezel screws, and physically rotate the monitor and bezel in horizontal or vertical configuration. Which is one of the biggest features of this cabinet, which you don't mention.

As far as the original Atomiswave setup:
- the original AW setup is JAMMA
- the difference is on the Atomiswave motherboard, the DIPSwitch is set to 31K mode which disables the JAMMA RGB (15k) and uses the VGA output on the AW motherboard instead.
- besides that the original factory harness had stereo connectors for FX1 and F3 system motherboards (thus the mono/stereo switch inside and pots for left and right volume), a Maple button harness, and a standard 6th button separate connector.

Monitor was a drop in replacement. The chassis is a little bigger than the shelf for the old one but it has a plastic base and is secured with zip ties so it doesn’t move. Should still be able to rotate it vertically if you wanted to.

Thanks for clarifying!

Funny enough I bought it in Texas a few years ago.

#10 6 months ago

Oh sweet! A few issues with TPf, I will be there, I have to leave Sunday morning, I also need to secure the machine somewhere it can’t get messed up before I leave, there’s also the issue of my wife; she doesn’t like fussing with machines while we’re there... so I need a way to deal with all that beforehand... I’ll start to work things out.

Is the jamma harness still intact?

Let’s talk retro pie setup for a sec... which pi version is being used?

This is sweet. I want this. Wish I could. Free bump.

We can meet anytime during the weekend and I can just leave it in the trailer until you want to get it if you were to buy it. I don't have the Jamma harness, but it was just one I bought off of ebay. They are cheap. The power supply that is in there should work fine for the jamma harness.

It is a Raspberry Pi 3+ with wifi. Running retropie. I have dapne with Dragons Lair and Space Ace on it, but they might need some tweaking. I haven't had a chance to mess with them much. I am running a version of MAME and FBNEO. Just have an assortment of fighters, classics and shmups on there. If you don't want the Pi, I could knock off a few bucks. I configured the pi using putty to ssh into it over wifi. The wifi is great as you can load new roms and emulators from any computer on your network. Pretty easy. Lots of guides out there.

I’m pretty good with arcade hardware and such, but I’m curious... if I want to put in a jamma harness and rotate the monitor, is the atomiswave motherboard present to switch to 15hz so jamma boards can be used? Or am I confused somewhere... I don’t have exp with macvision monitors or atomiswave candy cabs.

I guess I just want to make sure I can put my vertical jamma boards in at some point.

I’m a fan of mame, but a much bigger fan of original boards .

You would have to completely rewire it for JAMMA. You do not need an Atomiswave motherboard at all to perform any functions, as the cabinet was literally factory JAMMA plus a VGA cable before the owner changed it to a retropie setup. The Makvision should be an auto-sense for 15k/24k/31k. Has the standard 5/6 pin JAMMA input (15k 75Ohm Analog) and DB15 / VGA (31k TTL) for JVS or VGA up to 640x480 resolution. Hopefully the monitor frame from the original Wei-ya monitor is included or was used on the new Makvision.

This is based on my knowledge of working on several AWSDs and from what I can see from the pictures, as I'm not the owner/seller.

#15 6 months ago

Yes, used the original frame for the monitor. I took the new frame off and this one bolted right in.

#16 6 months ago

This is a soild price for an Atomiswave SD, I also have a Makvision trisync in mine and it's a great monitor! You can actually still buy them from SuzoHapp new, but who knows how much longer they'll actually keep producing them.
