NES Hardware Sound Comparison

YouTube user マツケん/ MatsukeN recently posted a video comparing how very different each NES/Famicom console outputs audio.

Now, of course, there’s a lof of things that factor into this comparison.  What version of the motherboard was in each?  Were they original capacitors, or was a full cap replacement done on each console?  What’s the quality of the analog to digital audio capture device like?

Nitpicking aside, it’s still a great representation of how different each model of the NES can sound.  It also sparks the question:  “What’s the right version?”.

As always, that’s up for debate, but an upcoming post may help clarify which of the differences can be listed as “preference” and which are just straight-up errors in the board design.
