In-line power switch for Spectrum 128 / +2

In-line Power Switch for Spectrum 128 / 128+2

A brand new on-off switch cable that connects between the DC jack of the Spectrum PSU and the computer's power socket. It saves wear and tear on the Spectrum's connector and eliminates the need to constantly connect / disconnect the DC plug for a full reset. This version has been specially made for the Spectrum 128 ("toast rack") / +2 (the grey 128) :-

  • Uses high quality cable with thicker guage wire for the higher current draw of the 128 Spectrums (can also be used with the Spectrum 48, but not the +2A or +3 (which have DIN style power connectors)).
  • Switches the positive supply line - this is always a more desirable state of affairs (because of the Spectrum's unusual PSU polarity, generic switch cables on the market will leave the positive connected and switch the negative side.)

RGB Mono SCART Cable For Spectrum128 +2 (Grey model)

RGB SCART Cable For Spectrum 128 +2  *Mono* (Grey model only)

  • Delivers a vastly superior RGB-mode TV picture than that obtained from the RF output.
  • Standard Mono sound jack for unmodded 128+2 (see the note below regarding sound on the 128+2)
  • Approx 2 Metres long
  • Very Important: Suitable for the grey coloured Spectrum 128+2 only.

Please note: The sound output from the 128+2's audio socket was not very well implemented by Amstrad. The beeper sound is much louder than the output from the AY sound chip (which is really quiet). If this is not a problem then a mono cable will be fine (but bear in mind it wouldn't be suitable after making the stereo audio modificiation because one channel will be silenced due to the mono jack plug).

RGB Stereo SCART Cable For Spectrum128 +2 (Grey model)

RGB Stereo SCART Cable For Spectrum 128 +2 (Grey model only)

  • Delivers a vastly superior RGB-mode TV picture than that obtained from the RF output.
  • Stereo sound jack - Ideal for when the 128+2 has been audio fixed (also works with the unmodded 128+2 but see the note below.)
  • Approx 2 Metres long
  • Very Important: Suitable for the grey coloured Spectrum 128+2 only.

Please note: The sound output from the 128+2's audio socket was not very well implemented by Amstrad. The beeper sound is much louder than the output from the AY chip (which is really quiet). There are various ways to fix this, probably the best being the stereo mod board available from Byte Delight
