This mod is way too complicated to explain in much detail, it took a lot of parts and clever thinking.

This system is a snes mini pcb running in a model 1 super famicom case.  Everything works, the power button, the reset button, the eject button, original controller ports, power LED.  The back is a regular super famicom back plate.  The rf box hole has been replaced with a rca jack that outputs digital audio.  This system has the video encoder bypassed with a sony cxa2075 for the best possible s-video quality in a snes.  The cord coming out the back powers my external spdif to analog converter box.

This is excellent! Why didn't you use an optical port though? Just out of curiosity; I thought I sent you one or two, plus they are way more common in stereo receivers than coaxial is. Plus a red beam of light is just awesome! Smile

Just a thought.

But that's a slick job and I love all the extra room you get from using the mini's motherboard.  What would be awesome would be if there's a way to figure out how to stick US/Canadian carts into it without needing to use an adapter. I know you can cut up the cart slot in the SFC; I just meant I have been trying to figure out a way to make US/Canadian carts fit without making the system look ugly.

My audio gear is analog only.  I'm using an external spdif to analog converter and it has a rca input on it.  Using an optical port would mean I'd need to make a bigger hole and a much uglier looking install.  Space was surprisingly tight.  That eject mechanism forced me to relocate a lot of stuff to the back.  It is possible to widen the slot for american carts.  The whole point of me buying this bridge device is so I don't have to butcher my sfc case slots.  It's impossible to make a rectangular cartridge peg fit in a rounded hole without widening it.  Square peg, round hole, either you build an adapter or widen the slot those are the only two options unless you know someone making reproduction sfc case tops with snes sized holes.

There is also this..





Dear god that looks terrible. Until someone makes a new sfc case top half with a full sized slot that looks nice I'll stick to using my ebay adapter.

Really - the sfc is such a nice looking system why would anyone want to do this?
