I have a lead time of 6 months for some connectors from JST I recently ordered. This shortage thing is getting really real.I asked JST for an update on my order and it doesn’t look good on parts shipping any time soon. Here’s their response on some line item ETA’s:
No.2 : ETD end Nov. to early Dec.
No.3 : ETD early Nov.
No.6 & No.8 : not fixed yet, due to serious raw material shortage affected by COVID-19 circumstances
Good luck on the hunt I was able to find everything I needed, so had to substitute a few connectors for other available.Couldn’t find the parts I needed anywhere. Will start hunting again.
Just treat it like any other audio source. The add on boards are simply tapping existing audio outputs. The System 1 already outputs line level audio on the J108 headers. You could easily make your own RCA wire harness, without any circuitry, to accomplish the same thing if you are concerned. My board is just a more elegant solution, does not require any real modification, and can always be removed.This might be a silly question, but anything I need to know about the audio out on those RCA jacks in terms of risk to the system I'm putting sound out to or back to the arcade board? Namco System 1 if it matters, but also sort of a general question with the add-on boards.
