I got myself an FDS unit to connect to my Famicom AV. It works fine but I think the audio that comes from the FDS (afaik it has some additional channels?) sounds really crappy. Alot of noise. Is it a common problem? I have no audioissues with the Famicom itself, I just noticed this when trying to play "VS Excitebike", I really had to lower the volume.
I don't notice any noise issues on the FDS BIOS-screen.
Can it be fixed or is it supposed to sound bad? :)

"Sounds really crappy" and "bad" don't help much. Any chance of getting a recording of audio output so that we can be a bit more subjective?

Here are some actual recordings of my FDS. Game titles and track numbers (NSF) are in the filenames.

Just checked your recordings, they sound pretty much perfect in my ears anyway. My audio sounds like a radiostation that isn't properly adjusted (background noise/static). I'll try to get a recording soon..

Scratchy/static-y? Probably a bad RAM adapter then (specifically the audio circuitry): http://wiki.nesdev.com/w/index.php/Fami ... m#Hardware

You can sometimes find *just* the RAM adapter for sale on eBay and other places, so in a way, you're in luck; the most finicky part of the FDS (i.e. the part that fails the most) is the disk drive.

Perhaps all you need is a little isopropyl alcohol on the contacts?
