just wanted to give a shout out/ thank you to Jeff geeteoh.com for an amazing product...
Located in Illinois and was a great experience all around!
As it is a somewhat new product(he designs and builds them himself as a side hobby) it allows you to record and play sounds digitally on your machine.
At the moment he has sound banks(which are included) for Mr. and Mrs. Pac-Man, Elektra, and Flash Gordon pinball machines. He has started recording the sounds for Fathom, Eight Ball Deluxe, and Centaur pinball machines.
The first board I received worked well...but had a few minor issues(mostly with functionality of some of the components on the PC board itself)
The sounds themselves were recorded cleanly and sounded great(I'm gonna need a new speaker, for sure!)
Jeff told me to hold on to the first board and he sent out a replacement that same day!
Needless to say the second one was perfect!
Separate volume controls for sounds/background, and voice allow you to fine tune the board to whatever sound you would like to hear above the others.
A micro SD card on the board allows you to create new sounds for your machine!
Old board was returned...he offered to pay postage...I said not necessary.
Have not tried to record any sound yet, but will add to post when I do!
I only have older pins that I try to repair and thus keep any upgrades to a minimum.
But my FG is the one I paid the most for and is deserving of a little "bling"!
I highly recommend the Squawk and Talk Replacement Sound Board from Jeff geeteoh.com!
Reasonably priced, and super aftersales support...I'm happy to support individuals like Jeff who are helping the pinball hobby(especially now) with modern products that keep our pins alive!
Thanks again Jeff!
