Genesis YPbPr Component Cable

Our Genesis YPbPr Component Cable will make every game from Altered Beast to Zero Wing look like you've never seen it before. A standard composite Sega Genesis cable results in blurry text, color smearing, and the loss of some of the original detail. But HD Retrovision YPbPr cables provide a clean, white balanced image that is crisp and clear. Use them on an HDTV that supports 240p, or on a standard-definition CRT for that classic look.

The Genesis YPbPr cable has a Model 2 style plug, compatible with later editions of the Genesis. We also offer an adapter that converts this plug to work on the Model 1 Genesis and Master System. The following charts contains a list of tested and confirmed console models which work with the Genesis YPbPr cable and Model 1 adapter. We expect the cable to work with even more models and console types, but we are unable to explicitly list them here unless they are confirmed by us. The Genesis cable also includes a stereo upgrade jack to simplify audio connectivity. Using a male-to-male 3.5mm audio cable, it is simple to upgrade your standalone Model 1 Genesis or combination 32X/Sega CD unit to stereo audio.
