Naomi Universal Candy Cabinet rebuild to Mame Cab

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I bought for some months ago a Naomi Virtua Striker 4 2006 Cabinet for 220€.

Wanted to rebuild it to an Mame Cab.

The first job in my todo list was to change the CRT

I found a used rarely Philips 29 PT 9521 73,7 cm (29 Zoll) 4:3 100 Hertz PIXEL PLUS with 720p/1080i for 50€

But i was disappointed about the Video Quality.

For Games it was ok . It wasnt pixelate but for configuration of mame in windows mode at 1080i or 720p it wasnt sharp enough.

So i decided to change the CRT with an LCD.

I bought a used 26" LCD with guarantee and 720p<for 110€. SAMSUNG 26" FLAT TV LCD ,HDMI, 16:9 , Chinch, Scart, VGA, HF, OSD, HD Ready ...

It was easy to fit the LCD between the Front and the Legs of the Naomi Cabinet.

Here some current Images .

I emptied the Cabinet from Triforce and Powersupply, Sega i/o and all the Looms.

Bought a little ShuttlePC XPC for Hyperspin etc for 60€.

damn dude.... those cabinets are soooooo sexy. i wish those were easier to find in america

I know its exist a wood naomi cabinet in america. have it only seen one time.

the european and japanese models are plastic and metal. and need relative small space in room.

but with crt is weight over 120kilogram ^^

i took this naomi because its cheaper than other candy cabs like egret ,astro city or viewlix

Some ppl prefer sitdown variants but i am not o good in chop these metal legs :-|

so i will look for bar stools.

im pretty sure there was a parts kit that came with shorter legs. I could be wrong but im pretty sure that existed

You're right, and pretty costly that kit was too. Or you could do the chop yourself, which is what I did a couple years ago (and since, have made very little progress now it's playable....)

unkelo, nice thread, I think I'm gonna go with a horizontal mount LCD in my other machine so it's good to see this one fitting.

Thanks mattedsmith i like your chopped Naomi and the new black color.

The leg kit is to expensive like the real sega replacement kit for 29" crt with a lcd.

So its better to chop it by myself but i must disassemble all parts . thats much work ,-)
