Just to add my 2 cents, among my three 480p capable consoles (PS2, DC & OG XBox) I think the DC has the best picture with the OSSC. There’s not a hint of noise or softness in the picture. Looks almost like an HD console in 480pX2 with Upsample2x. So I’m a bit confused why you’ve heard of any ‘issues’ there. I doubt the Akura can do a better job than the OSSC.
