We hand-restore old consoles and upgrade them with modern tech
All Game Boy Colors came with just enough capacitance on the board for the power regulator to work. Over time this capacitor gets worn and can store less energy. The result is noise on the audio, failure to save games occasionally, or complete failure of the board all together.
If you do any mods to your console such as backlights, new LCDs or audio upgrades, that slight increase in power is enough to either add a lot of high pitch noise to your audio or to cause other faults.
Install this ultra-high storage solid capacitor to remove any noise from your audio, clean up your power and allow you to get many more years out of your console.
To install simply de-solder the old capacitor, bend the new capacitor legs into place, trim them and solder it in the orientation shown in the image.
So many things these days are mass produced, not designed to last, and make as cheap as possible for as much money as possible. We started RetroSix not as a mass market business. We are aiming at the small, limited quantity, but hand-build and restored market.
All work, restoration, modifications, improvements and so on are done in the UK, in-house by hand and all attention to detail and care is taken for every order. You can be assured that your order has been inspected not only by a real person but someone who knows about and is excited by gaming and retro, and no sub-par product leaves our doors.
In 2020 we partnered with Hand Held Legend in the USA. I believe partnering with other likeminded companies is a great way to help each other out and ultimately make products that are better for the end consumer. Check them out at https://handheldlegend.com
RetroSix is a small team of people who have been in the gaming industry and retail business since 2013, and sold consoles, controllers and even designed our own controllers and consoles.
Putting that expertise to good use, we decided to start RetroSix; a small team of people passionate about retro gaming, and restoring original consoles to like-new, adding our own twist and style to them and in general bringing a modern twist to retro.
Experience the nostalgia without the limitations of old and outdated hardware.
