PowerBase Mini FM

A brand new, smaller alternative to the original Power Base Converter with mod-less FM sound support. Comes with BitBox case and insert. Check out the difference between FM sound and the regular Master System sound here:


  • Mini size that fits in any official Genesis / Mega-drive system† (does not work with JVC X'eye and will not work on the Nomad, even if its modded to work with SMS games)
  • Please select Side Notch if you need Japanese Mega Drive Model 1 cart lock support.
  • FM sound support! FM sound can be disabled by holding Pause button while powering on system.
  • Red colored shell
  • May work on some clone systems, but not guaranteed.* This will NOT work on the RetroN5. The RetroN5 has its own FM sound emulator with later OS updates. If you want to use your Master System carts on your RetroN5 please purchase a regular PowerBase Mini.

    I was hoping it would work in my JVC x'eye & it did playing Sega Master System ROMs on my JVC x'eye.

    As own the old SEGA unit I plan to get this ASAP since so I can use it on the Retron 5 wean I get it. There's reports that that this and old SEGA version works with the RetroGen adapter on the SNES "I don't know it's fact".
