    WTB: Sega Astro/Blast City - Taito Egret II (Canada)

    People want what they want. I'm not the one paying 5k for one so I'm the wrong one to ask. I can only give you my experience with the cabinet. I bought my first one as I only had room for one cabinet, Its easy for me to take apart, and its moved through several states with me. I know the...

    WTB: Sega Astro/Blast City - Taito Egret II (Canada)

    It blows my mind people refer to them as clout cabs, I don't know where that came from or why people even say or think that. For reference, this is where my first one came from, east coast too...

    WTB: Sega Astro/Blast City - Taito Egret II (Canada)

    The blast tube is fairly common in the usa, I've pulled a few out of tv sets myself- in fact I have 2 in my garage now. It's those 2930/31/33 that are a bastard to repair, plus getting those speakers out, ect- not exactly user friendly, but I managed to salvage that bass fishing into a real...

    WTB: Sega Astro/Blast City - Taito Egret II (Canada)

    OP, go with what you like, if you want an E2, get an e2. It is your money, you do what you choose with it. All this back and forth does nothing to get this man what hes asking for. I've been an e2 owner since 2009, it was my second cabinet and I still play it almost everyday. Of all the...

    I'd say more people would be interested in the Hyper cabinet if you can get it.

    In this thread we tube and yoke swap monitors

    I have had a successful swap with my windy. The yoke in it was making a loud grinding noise whenever powering on. I tried two different yokes, one toshiba 6643 and one nanao ms9 and neither worked. Both had purity and convergence issues that would not go away. Tried the 3rd yoke and it’s...

    That issue should be between Paris and KC, and it should be in the feedback forum.

    Blast City resurrection

    That geometry bow is common, I've had it on a 2930 and a 2931. Just how these semi curved tubes are, some are like that from factory. Looks great though!

    In this thread we tube and yoke swap monitors

    For a ms8/9 you need to find a certain type of set. There is no guarantee those sets will have a proper tube or one that isn’t a bonded yoke. It’s all a gamble. Tube manufactures make their tubes somewhat standard but each they make their own spin on it. Example- like that Orion tube is the...

    Project: upgrade power supply and sound output from NNC

    The NNC Sun Power supply should be adequate, maybe a recap and reflow would help. The naomi sound amplifier is one of my favorite amplifiers, next to the Model 3 amp. I suggest replacing the speakers in your NNC with these: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RP6oMiHicOc They made a...

    In this thread we tube and yoke swap monitors

    I had the same issue with the PF swap. There should be some room to tilt the yoke and apply wedges. On that tube there was no room. 2/3 of the tubes I experimented with are off to the recycle bin.

    In this thread we tube and yoke swap monitors

    So I opened up the second toshiba set. A68k tube, bad news, fully bonded yoke that isn’t coming off. Off to the recycle center. I did make some progress on the other tube I was having trouble with. The issues I was having is related to the yoke position, I’ll have to continue to play with it.

    Yoke swap. There’s some geometry issues but my 2930 windy has them too, many semi curved sets have those issues.

    Theres some small ones but you cant really tell. Mainly top and bottom, could easily be remedied with some foam but I plan on selling it so I'm not going to bother. Good looking picture too.

    In this thread we tube and yoke swap monitors

    FWIW thats the tube I used for my Blast swap. Most Toshiba tubes in the USA have Orion tubes in them, and they have a different curvature. If you find a full curve Toshiba set and it has an orion tube, it will not fit...

    Question about 29" new Makvision arcade monitor, if it will work with New Astro City

    Start looking for semi curved sets. The one I got to work I posted somewhere on the forum. General rule is you want to try to stick with same brands- IE if you have a toshiba tube, look for a toshiba set. There isn't any guarantee that the tube in the TV will work, especially in the USA where...

    Question about 29" new Makvision arcade monitor, if it will work with New Astro City

    This is what I did with the Blast city. Its cheaper and far more rewarding. On the flip side, dialing it in is a real pain in the ass.
