Available now (handled by our partners BetaGamma Computing in Greece). Please allow for shipping and processing delays due to Covid 19 and a recent cyber attack on the Greek post office. Please note that we can no longer accept mod/repair orders from UK customers (except NI).
All repair/modification work is carried out subject to our terms and conditions. Once you have placed your order, details of where to ship your hardware will be sent to your e-mail address. Prices do NOT include return postage.
Note – This mod is compatible with 1-Chip Super Nintendo consoles ONLY. This model is much rarer than the regular multi-chip consoles. To find out if you have a 1-Chip console, see the instructions on this page. If you send us an incompatible console we will not be able to complete the mod and will have to charge you for return shipping costs.
Improve the picture quality on your 1-Chip SNES console even further by installing our latest and greatest RGB bypass amp. For the absolute best picture quality possible with your Super Famicom or SNES console we perform the upgrade using our very latest, cutting edge RGB Bypass amp (the price includes the amp as well as fitting). This modification should improve or fix the consoles vertical line issue. We will also perform an additional mod to fix brightness and ghosting issues that these consoles often exhibit.
About the low pass filter
Our new amps include the option to turn off the low pass filter. There is considerable debate as to what is the best option for this and no clear right or wrong answer. Many people believe that if you’re using the console predominantly with a scaler like the OSSC or XRGB Mini you should disable or turn off the low pass filter, otherwise you should leave it on. Turning off the filter can give a slightly sharper image but can also introduce other problems, such as picture noise. The picture below shows an example of the two filter settings.
Important – Missing top line issue
It has come to our attention that installing the RGB mod may cause some games to lose the top few scanlines from the picture. Below is an example of this phenomenon. Click on the picture to enlarge it.
The issue only affects a small number of games. We believe this is an acceptable trade-off for improved picture quality. We are always actively researching and improving our mods and should a fix appear for this issue we will incorporate it into our work.
