Is ‘audiophile’ 8-bit sound an oxymoron?
That’s one of the questions raised by a new upgrade for the classic Commodore 64 computer.
In his latest video, The 8-Bit Guy takes a look at evo64 – a modernized and upgraded circuit board that’s designed to let you get higher-quality audio and video.
Options range from stereo sound to a tube-based pre-amp.
The evo64 offers dual SIDs, for full stereo sound, the Triode64 audio pre-amp module (optional), the NuTube64 audio pre-amp module (based on the Korg NuTube 6P1) and ClearVideo64c for video clarity.
The upgrades are for hardcore enthusiasts, with prices ranging up to $1,000. See the evo64 site for details.
