Connectors for the Commodore 64

Most of the port sockets on the C64 motherboard are now very difficult - if not impossible - to find new so those listed below will have been salvaged (carefully desoldered by myself and cleaned ready for refitting.) 

(The standard chip sockets are of course brand new.)

  • Unused old stock Commodore part. (Never soldered to a board, but still old so may not be in mint physical condition - ie: blemishes likely but no rust etc.)

  • This version has a switch on the side to select between PAL-I and PAL-B (to suit the different sound channel carrier in some PAL TV territories)
  • Each unit has been tested by myself - the RF output is as good as RF gets on these! Little to no flaring, waviness or noise.
  • Also tested the pass-through to the A/V port - fully working - high quality, as would be expected.
  • Due to their size, modulators are in the "small parcel" category so postage may be higher than expected within the UK (it doesn't make a lot of difference when sending overseas however)
