Since I'm a grown-ass man and can purchase whatever I want now, I decided to dive into the PCE and get myself a cute little Coregrafx.
I ended up purchasing a SSDS3, which attaches to my PCE Coregrafx and outputs RGB and also acts as a flashcart for not only the PCE/TG16 library, but also the CD games too! Incredible!
The only problem is, the creators messed up with the video and sound circuitry, causing your image to have colour noise, and the CD audio has a lot of hissing when the system is accessing the MicroSD card. It's been reported everywhere from multiple customers about these problems, which makes this unit less desirable to a majority of people.
Enter the FU-RGB and FirebrandX Audio bypass boards.
These 2 boards make up for the engineering shortcomings and upgrades the video and audio circuitry (bypassing it the SSDS3 altogether) to output clean video and non-hissing audio! Shouts-out to Voultar and FirebrandX for the creation of these boards, as well as MobiusStripTechnologies for the distribution.
Installation was a bit more advanced, since you have to remove a bunch of SMD's cleanly, so that the solder pads are accessible, but with a trusty heat tool and de-soldering wick you can get it done effectively. FU-RGB on one side, Audio Bypass board on the other:
The final result? Immaculate!
You can really see the differences when you get up close to the pixels. A lot cleaner, better colour output, no noise:
