HD Retrovision Sega Genesis YPbPr Component Cable

HD Retrovision Sega Genesis YPbPr Component Cable

PLEASE NOTE: Adapters are needed if using this with a Model 1 Sega Genesis, Sega Saturn, or Sony Playstation 1.  Please use those links if needing more than 1 adapter.  

The 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, as well as adapters for several other consoles. 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.

The following charts contain a list of tested and confirmed console models which have been verified to work with the Genesis YPbPr Cable and Model 1 adapter. The intent of these lists is to give a general idea of what types of consoles can work with the cable and adapter, and are not exhaustive. Therefore, we expect the cable to work with even more models and console types than what is listed, but we are unable to explicitly put them in the list unless functionality is directly confirmed by us.

    Crisp image and awesome built! (Tested PS1 Adapter)

    Posted by Juan Moreno on Sep 21st 2023

    The cable it`s pretty solid, you can feel the quality since you take it out of the box. The quality displayed it`s definitely better than S-Video OEM cable (from Sony). I`m really happy with it!

    Exceeded my expectations

    Posted by Jaxon on Sep 13th 2023

    Since the Genesis doesn`t natively support Component video, my expectations did not match the quality of the actual product. I have come to trust products made by HD Retrovision, and decided to give these a go. The quality is AMAZING. The difference is incredible. Get these right away if you`re a Genesis owner!

    Great cable! The image quality is vastly superior to that of other cables. No degraded signal, no color distortion. Just works great. Combine with the Retotink 5x for an amazing image on modern flat panel displays. Highly recommended!!!!

    Completely Worth It

    Posted by Darren on Jul 22nd 2023

    Got this component cable for my Model 2 Genesis and Playstation, completely worth the price! Image looks incredible on my OLED TV, very crisp and the colors look great. Never seen the Playstation look so good, can`t wait to use with the RetroTink 5x Pro when it arrives.
