    Where? How much? The website links to two distributors who don’t appear to have any details or prices.

      Somewhere I read they were available at Pinballlife, but I couldn’t find them in stock there, so I redirected to the company website. My guess is if you have questions to contact them directly. I honestly don’t know the answers to your questions.

    Thanks I’ll reach out to them – this looks awesome.

    what did you think of the sound through the headphones? I always thought that since the original sounds and music were of lower quality to begin with, hearing them through headphones would sound strange.

    Honestly, I thought it sounded great. It’s the same audio feed, so I can’t say it’s any different than what you would hear in a quiet room, but I don’t think that’s the point. The mod does what it says it does, and it does it well. That’s enough for me.

    Export machines (Euro, at least) does not have that bill chute in the coin door, let alone a cut for it. They (WPC and later) only feature a single coin chute. That should still be usable, though less convenient.

    Headphone connector never caught on on operated games due vandalism.

    In competition play, however, it can be a great benefit to players.

    The sound on gameplay footage should still carrie a bit of ambiance, the way I see it. The right balance, game sound/ambient sound, can be achieved using a single microphone. I just takes the right model, placement and directional mount.

    @soren – “The right balance, game sound/ambient sound, can be achieved using a single microphone.” – While that may be true to a certain degree, it is less flexible than having multiple channels of clean, discrete audio which allow for better post-processing.

    The audio balance on the PAPA tournament vids is fine as it is.

    Hi there! My name is Buck, and I’m the creator of the audio adapter. The current plan is to price the adapters at $69 for Bally Williams WPC/WPC 95, and at $75 for Stern SAM and White Star board sets. The adapters should be available for purchase some time next week.
