PlaySoniq on Sale

Already spotted in the wild by some of you, but now it’s official: the PlaySoniq is on sale! The price of this multi-expander is set to 150 euros. The default connector cable from the PlaySoniq to Euro-SCART is 15 euro. A customized cable for J-SCART, CVBS or extra audio outputs can be made for you (please allow for some extra delivery days), prices are around 25 euro. Worldwide shipping not included. Please ask for details.

The first software package is ready and we have been busy with the instruction manual. Detailed information for users and programmers included. Check the PlaySoniq User Manual v1.3 on our documents page for all its amazing features.

Our product packaging (the outside box to shelve) will be produced by Sunrise by the end of this year and all buyers can apply for a free one (shipping excluded) when they’re ready. Please note that all PlaySoniq expanders will be send with a cartridge enclose (as seen on the above photo). We will start to process your orders at Monday the 6th of September. As all expanders have to endure testing, not all orders can be send out immediately.

Send your pre-orders to info@supersoniqs.com. We will contact you when we are ready to process your order. Until then!

  1. Look’s really great, congrats on completing this fantastic project ! It’s no doubt that the playsoniq will give their users a great time :D

  2. An email was sent yesterday… and another one, with a question… today :D

    That’s amazing ^^

    • Both questions have been answered. :-)

  3. [...] Today, I got a new hardware for MSX named “PlaySoniq“. [...]

  4. Congratulations!
    It will be interesting to add Playsoniq functionality to GEM and TNI’s upcoming music editor.

    • Upon closer investigation, the SMS VDP does not seem capable enough for Gameboy emulation. Specifically the lack of X/Y flipping for sprites is a big problem.

      SCC and Memory Mapper in 1 cart is still nice tho…

  5. I have tested my playsoniq card and it is really the BEAST!!! Congratulations guys for this great device with this will open new doors for MSX programmers that is FANTASTIC.
    :)

  6. I have tested Playsoniq on Victor MSX2 HC-95 in Turbo Mode (2nd CPU HD64180 at 6mhz) and it run very well mostly every game tested (SpaceHarrier,GoldenAxe,GalaxyForce,others) better execution with less Graphic Glitches than Panasonic A1WX TurboMode and better yet than NSM8280 7mhz Mode.

    Simply The BEAST…….

  7. Great! Although, I noticed an error in the manual. The SID chip actually only has three sound channels (3 tone/noise selectable). It is possible possible to achieve more by changing the volume register quickly on some models (for sample playback, etc.) but that’s really just software mixing. Anyway, I might buy this thing if the gaping hole in my wallet is ever mended :)

    • Thank for pointing that out. We will adjust the manual. BTW: the total amount of sound channels still stands because there’s also the D/A converter ;-).
