    Gaussian refers simply to the audio filtering used, the Snes audio used Guassian, which gives is a muffled sound, a good example of bad audio would be Square Enix games, I think what I might do is make a blog/thread and compare emulators to emulators, IDK yet :P

    Weather or not emulators need to accuratly emulate the original sound is debateable. All i know is if it sounds good then okay, if it sounds better then even better. That spc700 chip is was impressive for is audio sound quality, as long as the games made good use of it like Final fantasy IV and chrono trigger as well as some others like the Donkey kong country killer instinct, Super mario rpg, Super turrican's Dobly surround sound and castlevania Dracula X

    But it just depends on the game to be honest, Sega games have good audio, like sonic the hedgehog, sparkster, earthworm jim, Zero Wing and one of my favorites Toejam & Earl series as well as Monster world IV And wonderboy in moster world. Don't forget streets of rage as well. :)

    we know by system specs and comparing snes was better but it was just how the audio is made and program that just have it be good. That sega cd PCM upgrade audio does help make some games sound better than that Genesis PSG Audio, and less not forget that sega master system FM audio chip enhancement.:ninja:

    Why don't you get a N3DS? It has decent emulators and via rom injection you can run SNES games better than a PSP could.

    Other than that, some mentioned the Xperia Play. It's basically a PSP Go without PSP support, but it runs Android, so you have access to tons of emulators that run better than any emulator on a PSP, even SNES. The screen is higher res than the PSP's screen.

    Yea i am looking on the new 3DS XL + R4 card. Seems like good choice too. It cost about 150e + maybe 25e for that card.
    About android consoles its great that they can emulate almost every console, but i dont know if it will be stable maybe after 2 years -> chines android device :P

    No it cannot emulate everything but it does emulate a great deal of consoles well. I use it all the time and meats all expectations and more than original console does.:mellow:

    Stability is overrated. The 3DS gets stability updates every time. And these can break good stuff. Android, especially on cheap chinese devices, is a heaven for malware, but as long as you are using those devices for emulation only, you are fine.

    Does it really matter which malware is included? I prefer Chinese malware over NSA malware ;-)

    Right, you could think of NSA as cloud storage

    I have all of them.
    Depends on what emulators you looking for, Retroarch supports just about every system a android can play flawlessly. But again depends on system you can find retroarch in google play store.

    Yeah, i dunno how they sell it in UK but i guess the decision was made to reduce price?

    I bought mine in 2015 for $300 with no cover or gamepad but charger included.
    They recently early this year started selling it (Rebranded as Shield 1K) With reduced price and other things like no stylus pen and such, so that could be why.
    You can use any android charger (Micro usb) And it will work as intended. :)

    Raspberry Pi is a good portable emulation device.

    It emulates many systems (via RetroPie), and many have modded it into Game Boy cases.
