    Here’s my Full Upright, RetroPie-powered Arcade Cabinet. Here’s the list of components and cost:

    27″ CRT TV – Free
    Lethal Enforcers Arcade Cabinet – $50
    Raspbery Pi + 32GB MicroSD Card – $65
    HDMI -> Component Converter – $45
    Used X-Arcade Dual Tankstick – $100

    The best part is the cabinet’s original speakers and marquee light STILL worked! A buddy of mine helped rewire the speakers to be powered by the TV and added an external switch to the cabinet so the TV can be powered on/off. It’s fully functional now and all that’s left is cosmetic work.

    Hi.

    Ciuld you give me a link to the HDMI-component converter you bought?

    I want to use muy RPi2 with a CRT TV, but the composite output doesn’t give quality enough…
