Description

Take your Game Boy restoration to the next level with the custom built, ultra-efficient and clean audio class D amplifier designed in-house by RetroSix. One of the first and only audio amplifiers for the Game Boy Advance SP.

The CleanAmp replaces the original audio amplifier and speaker of the Game Boy DMG Original, Color, Pocket Game Boy Advance or Game Boy Advance SP with a modern smooth and crazy loud (1 Watt) Class-D amplifier and 23mm speaker.

Experience the sounds of the old school games like you will of never heard them before, in clear, responsive detail.

The original audio amplifier on the Game Boy consoles is old technology; it is very inefficient, it uses more power and outputs very quiet sound to the speakers.

During their journey of restoration perfection at RetroSix, they reverse engineered and analyzed lots of the Game Boy's components. The original audio amplifier and speaker had various faults.

  • The speaker is very quiet and inefficient for a power to sound output ratio
  • The audio amplifier is very dirty, and brings in lots of audio ground noise
  • The amplification gain is very low so the sound output is too low to be enjoyable

The CleanAmp board by RetroSix addresses all of those issue, providing a clean, stable, and efficient output with a clear, responsive and very loud speaker.

 

Features:

  • Hear your game boy across the room
  • v1.1 includes larger solder pads for easier installation
  • The PureSilence upgrade is built into v1.1 for the Game Boy Advance, giving complete silence when the volume wheel is turned all the way down, both in headphones and to the speaker.
  • Compatible with original headphone jack, sound stops when plugging in headphones.

 

Included
  • 1x 23mm 1 watt speaker
  • 1 x CleanAmp v1.1
  • 1 x speaker ring sticker

Note: Basic soldering skills and tools required. 


Installation

Some may experience a hum when changing brightness on the Game Boy Color TFT LCD backlight mod. Solve this problem by replacing a capacitor on the GBC motherboard.
