Quoted from Spelunk71:

I just ordered updated roms from Matt’s Basement Arcade (Pinside store). Sopranos is not listed, but I PMd him and got a quick response. Matt said I’d need two chips—the display and CPU 5.0 roms. He said new sound roms are not usually necessary unless there are problems. They are $10 each + 3.50 shipping. I haven’t received them yet, but they were shipped within a day.

Thanks for the referral. I've have had several people ask so I added a listing. PM is fine too. The 8MB sound chips are a little more, but shipping covers everything ordered at the same time. I found this thread as alimerick was asking about the swearing and looking for his answer but apparently he already asked. Normally most games hover around sound 1.0...but it does look like older roms can affect the swearing and went through changes (in addition to the settings being correct or even available)

Most of the time you just need the CPU/Display roms. You might just miss some sound callouts/music if they were added in a later sound version.

Color DMD Reuses and connects to the original DMD board. Its' software just recognizes the frames from the game and replaces them with the colored frames in real time.... (You still need display roms)

Most Data East/Sega/Stern games actually have 2 rom sockets on the back of the dmd but only use 1. Or like with Star Wars, early release machines used 2 2MB chips and then later consolidated to 1 4MB chip leaving the socket empty.

Here is a video of me installing my ColorDMD in Jurassic park which is pretty much the same as Sopranos so you can see how it goes in.

Quoted from Triball:

Thanks. Yes, I need the voice chips as well. I'll get an UV-eraser. Some sites mentiones that these chips are OTP (One-time-programmable). Even though they have this UV window. Do you know if they in fact can be erased and flashed again?

If it has a window, it "should" be erasable but you may need to check the actual part number/data sheet.

If you are looking to do it yourself, these are the chip sizes and checksums:
27C010 CPU ROM U210 A5.0 B5FF (1MB)
27C512 SOUND ROM U7 A4.0 9B5A (512k)
27C040 DISPLAY ROM U5 A5.0 B4BB (4MB)
27C080 SOUND ROM U17 A3.0 F01E (8MB)
27C080 SOUND ROM U21 A1.04 C14C (8MB)
27C080 SOUND ROM U36 A1.04 47A3 (8MB)
27C080 SOUND ROM U37 A1.04 ADCD (8MB)
