A little history about myself. I am from USA and I moved to China when i got married to beautiful chinese woman. hehe
I was in the Arcade tournament scene from 1999-2008 and made friends with many top players.
I was the founder of GoForBroke, which archived tournament videos from around the world.
This eventually led to Combovideos.com

I love original hardware and I moved to China. I met a guy his tag is Axun @ axunwork.taobao.com/
This man makes high quality parts for the retro scene. Made to order.
I was so impressed i told him he needs to get his products out west. He showed little interests but said if I help him maybe something can happen so here we are.
This new JVS / JAMMA CBOX, he has given me the task of "getting it out there"
This first product i am showcasing is NEW. He just created it.

OFFICAL WEBSITE (International ORDERS)
http://www.axunworks.com/

It is a JVS / JAMMA SuperGun that has built in power! One box to rule them all. Very Hassle free. No more need for expensive, hard to find JVS I/O boards! :D

SPECS: (Translated from Chinese)
JVS / JAMMA CONTROL-BOX (referred to as JJ-CBOX) VERSION 2
It can be easily connected to the JAMMA and the JVS, and you can easily play the original arcade games at home.

It comes with:
JJ-CBOX v2 Unit + power cord

Controller Inputs:
x2 Sega Saturn
x2 Sigma
x2 DB15 Neo-Geo (support 6 buttons)

VIDEO/AUDIO OUTPUTS:
DB15 pin interface is 15kHz and a direct output of the RGBS signal of JAMMA.
The 8P interface is the same as the RGB interface of NEOGEO, but it supports stereo. 8pin to EU-SCART (RGB)
RGB impedance can be set in 4 modes: pass-through, 75 ohm, 150 ohm, 75 + 150 ohm (now it has been changed to 0-500 ohm linear adjustment)
Stereo RCA Output (Recommended to set it in mono, because most types of JAMMA PCB are mono)
(In mono mode, the red and white RCA output ports also have sound.)

CORRECTION POTS:
The Correction knob adjusts the phase delay of the synchronization signal.
It moves the image up and down or left and right to center the image.

POWER:
AC INPUT: 100-240v
ADJUSTABLE 5v and 3v for picky JAMMA boards

JVS CONTROL and POWER:
The JVS-USB interface is used to control the JVS host. It can control JVS hosts such as (TESTED) SEGA NAOMI 1, SEGA NAOMI 2, RINGEDGE 1, RINGEDGE 2, Namco 246/256, Taito Type X1 , Taito Type X2, etc.
12-hole JVS power output, including negative 5V, 3.3V, 5V, 12V (CBOX can power Naomi 1/2, Namco 246/256 with custom harness)

6 BUTTON CONTROL JVS/JAMMA:
JVS 6 button is built in.
The external 456 or KICK HARNESS is used to connect some 6-key games such as STV, CPS1, CPS2, CPS3 and so on. (KICK HARNESS wiring is required.)
Kick harness switch for quick Enable/Disable
Customization 6 button mapping (Refer to CUSTOM MAPPING SECTION)

CONTROLLER CONFIG:
USING the LAYOUT BUTTON: (Refer to picture #1)
NORM = is standard CAPCOM 6 button
SNK = is standard SNK layout
STG = is standard SHUMPS(Shooting Game) Mode (The above three buttons can be set continuously. But the following three buttons cannot be continuous.
Because some shooting games need to hold down to store energy.)

USING the ANGLE BUTTON: (Refer to picture #1)
NORM = Standard (Clockwise) Up , Right, Down, Left
90°
180°
270°
(This is helpful for games that rotate screen but you cannot rotate your screen)

At this time you need to press the buttons 1-6 to your desired layout.
Press the LAYOUT BUTTON again to to exit CUSTOM MODE.

That looks pretty impressive. I look forward to seeing some reviews of it!
 
CAPCOM Jamma JVS I/O board for SEGA NAOMI is still on ebay for $198

Come join the new revolution!
 
The videos are definitely cool. Is that effectively an entire controller in Test Buttons on the front of the unit?

Also, what cords (if any) are included with the box?

Last question I can think of right now: do you have any way to "turn off" the button 456 on the jamma edge? I know we've identified at least 1-2 games that don't work right if it's wired that way.
 
Looks realle neat! From the video it looks like it has a sega IO inside, if so it should take away any concerns about compatibility. If the wire harness is included, it's a great price!
 
Looks awesome!! Great work!
 
That looks great! Would it be possible to get a photo of the internals or an idea of what parts have been used?

PSU is the biggest thing I'd be interested to know more about :)

PSU is custom AxunWorkshop JVS 3.3-20 (120v-240v)

Bob from RetroRGB will get one for review. Hope to get it to him before Chinese New Years.
 
Question for Axun. Do you think there's a possibility for a deluxe model down the line with a OSSC built in? Or even the possibility for an enclosure that allows the user to slot one in?

I've thought about that. But players say they prefer to keep the OSSC outside, because home consoles can also use the OSSC without being too bulky. In the future, I can consider making a larger BOX to reserve OSSC interface location integration. At present, there is no more space inside this BOX. Maybe by summer. -Axun
 
Thanks for the fast reply. The suggestion was actually from someone who has ordered one of your units on taobao. Will perhaps be something to look forward to in the future for an all-in-one plug and play arcade unit.

Will be getting one of the units down the line for sure, a JVS solution has been long needed in a Supergun and this one is well executed!
 
Edit: There are some issues with inputs which needs a bit of testing.

I got it, thanks to @djsheep for informing me of this - works for me really well- I run CPS1, CPS2, NAOMI2, Fever SOS and various other single board arcade PCBs.

Pros:
1. No need for Sun PSU for my Naomis now.
2. Cables and box are well made - professionally done.
3. Everything else.
4. One stop shop for cables and all.

Cons:
None to report at the moment.


I will later try with the Namco 246/256.

P.S. I dont know about electrical stuff and I will leave it for someone else to do all the tests.

P.S.S. Also whats the 9pin din to AVmulti cable? Seems useless to me.
