Video Review

Have a look at this excellent video review of the dbGrafx Bosoter by Retro Gaming Rewind.


The dbGrafx Booster is designed to fit inside a standard off the shelf Hammond 1591XXCSBK enclosure. Note that you will need standard tools (rotary, drill) in order to modify the enclosure accordingly. There are currently no plans to sell this enclosure with the dbGrafx Booster.
