    i want to buy a d2c chip, and found a site selling it with 25.99 USD (free shipping), is this a good price? And idea where to find a better price one?

    The current finding will ship from HK to USA.

    I deal with this site for stuff to sell. Please note it is better if you set up your own account with DHL to provide this company with a DHL account number for shipping this item. To setup a DHL account is free and painless. Then when the item is sent you will receive a bill from DHL to cover the shipping

    Well Volumevate is owned by dealextreme.com

    And it looks like a clone... but Dealextreme is a very good webshop. I ordered like 14 times now from them.

    It's a good chip, but you really need to be good in soldering, or get the flexpcb board, this makes it a little easier.

    I would go for the wasabi chip now, it requires only 9 wires instead of 31 for the chip you choose now!

    it's only so cheap because that chip is so outdated now, nobody would buy it otherwise. All the other available d2c chips require between 9 and 13 wires, instead of 31 (!) as mentioned above.

    but the point is that it does work fine with all games.

    So if you're good with a soldering iron this will be your cheapest option.
