It’s been some time now since I purchased Genius SP-U115 USB Stereo Speakers and mounted them in my bartop arcade.
Like I wrote in my previous article “Replace iCade buttons with high quality SANWA buttons” I had a little time on my hands over the weekend to replace the buttons.
I have oredered 6 Sanwa OSBF-30 buttons from eBay for $15.99 with free shipping and you can choose the colors even from this store:

If you like me have for example folder filled with NES rom files that end with .nes extension and you would like to zip them all up in individual files to save some space.
I use this one-liner to zip all my NES collection so that it will take less space on my USB stick when I transfer it to my bartop arcade running RetroPie:
for file in *.nes ; do zip "$file.zip" "$file"; done
One of the hardest things to choose right for me was LCD screen. There are so many of them to choose from, but there is no much choice if you are looking for 4:3 format screen in a compact form.
Since most of the retro games is made for 4:3 aspect ratio this was a must, so after a long search I found Towin L8009 8 Inch TFT Color LCD monitor at eachmall.com website that fits perfectly with it’s 8” size and 800×600 resolution.
