Mag-Pi build notes

The story so far...

We have acquired all of the basic parts to build the experimental machine. The core is a Raspberry-Pi model B. We're building a controller using arcade grade parts and the IPac/2 controller unit.

I'm very impressed with the quality of the Pi and the IPac. Need to spend some quality time with the o/s image tomorrow and see if I can improve its performance. The emulators seem a bit clunky.

Sound is going to be a bit of an issue. I'm not impressed with the sound quality, but our sound rig on this test was very rudimentary.

I am very tempted to use a CRT...
