RetroTINK 2X-Classic

Regular price $129.99 CAD

DISCONTINUED: Replaced by the upcoming RetroTINK 2X-MINI (ETA 2-3 weeks) and the currently available RetroTINK 2X-Pro.

The RetroTINK-2X Classic is the original version of the ultra-low latency line doubler that takes composite, S-video and component analog output from your retro-console and outputs HDMI digital video to your modern display.

  • Inputs: Component, S-video and Composite
  • Formats: 240p/480i, 288p/576i, NTSC and PAL and PAL-60
  • Output: MiniHDMI at 480p/576p (line-doubled mode) or input resolution (pass-thru mode)
  • Latency: About 53 microseconds
  • Audio: 24-bit stereo
  • Optional smoothing filter
  • Plexiglass enclosure
  • Power: MicroUSB input. Power supply and cord not included. The RT2X uses minimal power so a 500 mA phone charger is sufficient. The best source would be the USB port on your TV/monitor.


The 2X is very easy to use. Plug in USB power to the 2X and the mini-HDMI cord from the 2X to your display. Connect your console to one of the inputs: composite, S-video or component. Press the mode select button the correct input and you should be all set!

Castlemania Games was kind enough to write up an assembly guide: (

These pair very well with HD Retrovision's component video cables.

Greg Collins was kind enough to design a custom case, which can be 3-D printed:
