I finally got a TG-16!

Some of the games I would be after, namely Konami titles, are only on the PC Engine.  But either one.  I wouldn't be picky.  Lol.  They are just so expensive though.  

Bear in mind the Turbo EverDrive works on TurboGrafx-16 AND PC Engine systems, allowing you to flip between regions and play all games. There are also card adapters available to play PC Engine HuCards on TurboGrafx-16 systems and vice versa. Collect your passion and do what you think is best for you 😎

Okay I own both an NA TG-16 and my JPN TurboDUO. I naturally use the Duo since I can play pretty much everything on it. If you want to get good composite and left/right stereo without a ton of money (Turbo Boosters are damn pricey people!!!), then Might I suggest this route?

Although currently out of stock... but I would check with them from time to time to see about getting one.

Also there is a member on the FB group who goes by MuhMullet I beleive? He created an RGB amp board you can use to plug into the back of any TG-16 or PCE to get RGB out for a crazy low price as well. He also includes the SCART cable to make sure you get one that works properly. 

But because I never take my TG-16 out of its hard shell case and only use the DUO, I don't use these options myself. I actually added in standard RCAs to the back of my DUO for stereo audio and composite, and wired in an S-video circuit. That is how I play and am honestly quite pleased with the results. But I do have to say that the composite on the TG-16 and PCE is some of the best I've seen from a classic console of that era.

Do you happen to know the name of the Facebook group?
