      Question New Astrocity VS Blast City

      Hey all,

      I've had my eyes on a Astrocity cab for awhile now.
      I was doing some research and it seems that the Blast City can run NAOMI while the Astrocity cannot?
      Does the Blast city have a Tri-Sync monitor by default? and is this different to a Astrocity running a NANAO monitor?

      What cab do you guys prefer?
      I really like the Astrocity look, I think the height and colours are awesome but obviously, running NAOMI could be really fun in the future.

      Thanks,

      Blast City should have a tri res monitor by default, if it's the original monitor. It would likely be a Nano MS2930 or MS2931. The Astro will probably have a dual res 15khz/24khz. Most likely an MS9.

      I prefer the look of an Astro, but the Blast would be a more versatile cabinet.

      I too prefer the look of the Astro City - haven't been able to find any.

      The marquee of the blast city is obviously pretty impressive, but Astro City for me. I only plan to play 15khz/24khz games on an astro city (once I find one).

      Astro City, New Astro City and then Blast City for me in that order

      Obviously though, if you need 31Khz blast city it is. I think Blast City's are harder to come by than an Astro City. I have not seen one Blast City pop up for sale anywhere in Australia (well that being said, I haven't seen an original Astro City since I've started looking only a month or so ago, I've only seen New Astro City's pop up).

      Yeah, the NAOMI list is actually pretty limited.

      So I'm siding towards a New Astrocity ^_^

      You can never just have one candy. I started with one and now have seven. They breed!

      I think Blast City's are such a great looking machine.

      I was going to buy one once which had a faulty monitor
      I didn't go through with it, because I spoke with Joey (Jomac) first and he advised me that he doesn't repair those tri-res chassis' anymore, due to the headache involved. Not sure if anything has changed in the last year or so regarding that though. That being said, im sure there are other repairers for it, but I really love Joey's work on previous repairs ive had from him.

      The astro nanao chassis' on the other hand, he will fix all day long
