I’ve made recordings of a number of Sega Mega Drive-compatible consoles playing back the same music. The audio below has been normalised.

  • A. Sega Mega Drive 1 (output via headphone socket):
  • B. Sega Mega Drive 2 (output via AV socket):
  • C. Sega Genesis 2 (output via AV socket):
  • D. Sega Mega Drive 2 with CCAM Mod (output via additional RCA sockets):
  • E. Sega Nomad (output via headphone socket):

My favourites are A and D, but I think for live shows D is a better option because of the form factor of a MD2 compared to the bulky MD1.

    The Genesis 3’s is interesting too.. when listening to the Rolling Thunder 2 intro, as it fades out, I noticed less fuzz on that than on a model 1 and the model 2.

  • Anyone know where I can buy a Genesis 3 with a relatively good international shipping price?
