Here’s another beast, I’ve been meaning to build one to match this great “Rotronics” case I picked up on ebay a while back.

The case was made by a UK company specifically for the C64 & Vic-20. They designed it so you can plug the whole thing in and just run it in the case. The lid comes off, it has some nice foam inserts for games too. Does the job nicely.

Tidy.

The keys on this one are a tweak on the design I’ve put on the net. Very exclusive..!

I’ve started making my internal electrics more modular, so I can swap out the SID2SID and audio connections without soldering. I’m big on the shielded cabling too to reduce noise, and heatshrink on the joints for stability.

A bit of hot glue there too so stuff don’t jiggle out.

The “C64 Redux Red” has stereo sound which you can turn off and on using the switches on the right. There’s also a cool red glare that comes out of the right hand side. I didn’t get a photo of that though.

No unsightly jack outputs. I’ve modified the electrics so the right channel comes out of the standard C64 A/V out’s Audio in. The IN on the motherboard is grounded.

I’ll be doing another ebay blitz soon, but if anyone would like to make me a solid offer on this I’m open!

    i’d be happy with just a regular c64, a disk drive and the commodore monitor (even monochrome, but it’ll have to be green, not amber).
