Q: Why buy from us?
We are leaders in our field offering you expert advice specialising in retro arcades only
A family run business now in its 14th year of designing and manufacturing these arcade cabinets.
We take pride in what we produce and especially our high level of after sales service
Every cabinet is made to the highest quality, using the best parts we can find precision cut on a large CNC machine to look perfect when finished, please see our feedback we are sure you will be really happy with it.
In our experience when someone decides to build an arcade cabinet at home they underestimate the cost of all the parts required to complete build and the labour. Homemade cabinets sometimes don't look that good either.
Our reputation and customer feedback over the last 14 years speaks for itself see out facebook page.
5 years tech support and after sales service
Since we started back in 2002 many traders have sprung up with low quality arcades, usually imported.
We often get calls for help to repair these machines and hear the complaints how they have been left with problems.
Traders offer very little or no technical support afterwards, if a cabinet is cheap then there is normally a reason why,
Examples of what we sometimes see is plastic tops(acrylic aka plexiglass) used instead of glass that scratch, laminated chipboard, printed screen surrounds which obscures the game view,narrow screens so the game is stretched, cheap Chinese power supplies which are just simply dangerous. Just some things to watch out for
you generally get what you pay for at the end of the day.
Q: JAMMA or M.A.M.E cabinet?
Jamma is a simplier system but you are limited to the games that you can play by the board used,it's for you if you just want a handful of games to play
M.A.M.E. is more flexible and allows you to add those games you won't generally find else where.
there are lot of great tutorial videos how to get started with M.A.M.E. cabinets

Q: Are your cabinet PS3 and XBOX compatible?
In short yes, is playing a modern console on an retro arcade cabinet good? In short NO
In our opinion it's just a sales gimic that some arcade makers use to make their cabinets look more desirable.
It's common sense really, a modern console(ps3,ps4 xbox) is designed to be played at home on a huge widescreen TV with a handheld controller sat on a comfortable sofa.
Here are some of the reasons why it's a bad idea, you will lose all analogue thumb stick control on an arcade making 95% of games impossible to play.
You will also need to remove your console from under the TV to get it close enough to the arcade and connect it to the screen.
A retro arcade machine is designed to play retro arcade games!
Q: Are your arcades CE approved?
Yes all our parts and power supplies are CE approved and meet EMI emissions guidelines
This ensures our power supplies are safe to use in the home.
You would be horrified at the amount of traders out there using cheap unsafe, untested power supplies
in arcade cabinets.
We specialise in capturing that magic feeling you got back in the day
from playing those great classic games in an arcade.
We strive to make sure our cabinets with their lights and playability
re-produce that same atmosphere and feeling
