    What would you need stereo sound for?
    Sega Genesis systems were designed to output mono sound, therefore 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound would be useless.

          Different anon but mfw this is a low q thread. Terrible pun included.

          I strongly suspect the mono out of the original Genesis was closely related to the issues with internal signal quality. Never tried the bypass mod myself as I had a Gen 2. It seems engineers weren't able to solve some problems in time for release and the stereo jack was a work around. Just speculation, but mods like removing a pin on the vdp to reduce signal noise suggests there's issues Sega's EEs knew about but could not fix. Not too many noticed or cared though, it was still successful.

                In other words, the existence of a headphone jack on the front of the console would itself imply stereo output. As a result of this many people including myself thought the rear AV port also outputs stereo, it doesn't. Glad to have you all caught up now.

                Sega already had parts for that video output and cable and they wanted to get existing SMS users to buy the Genesis (hence backward compatibility). The stereo headphone output was a bonus on the Mk1.

                In case anyone else is reading and cares, of course stereo requires:
                - 2 plus speakers
                - stereo amp and connections/wiring
                - stereo source
                A couple of anons seem unaware of this, but it is mostly common knowledge.

                The Genny/MD states stereo on the console. Its wired this way and works if the source is stereo. (Not guaranteed, unlike what anon thinks)

                Less well known: The 3.5mm trs jack is a generic connection intended for audio but used for other things including data, midi, 3 pole power, mono speaker and mic etc. Also it is cheap and common so is wired as mono in some devices by connecting the l & r channel connection pcb-side. Also it appears identical to the less common 3.5mm ts jack.

                All of this has sailed by troll boy, but maybe it will help dispell some of his bullshit for the others. The 3.5mm jack Wikipedia article is enough to settle this although it isn't EE level.

                Btw the jack is also prone to damage, commonly making one channel drop

                No, and you're being too clever by half. I was too though, to be fair.

                Sticking headphones into any socket that fits them isn't going to imply stereo unless it is obviously their purpose e.g on a consumer level device that plays audio (I did suggest this at the outset). I'm sure that original anon meant it in this generalised sense and I am being too pedantic for the average anon but that doesn't nullify my point or justify yours or the deranged replies I received.

                The third reply to OP specifically referred to a headphone jack assumedly because "phones" and a headphone icon is labeled by the jack on the console, he wasn't referring to a mysterious unlabeled 3.5mm jack output. Bringing up the undisputed fact 3.5mm trs is a standardized socket type with many applications is entirely irrelevant to the discussion of headphone jacks specifically and indicates becoming lost in the conversation. While it is correct to assert the jack may not necessarily be outputting stereo audio due to software that doesn't negate the hardware capability or its labeling, the capability and labeling being the actual subject of discussion.

                I don't care who you are. If you have difficulty expressing ideas without assigning them to specific people that tells me you're more concerned with popularity than discussion. Don't worry though, I'm sure you're definitely someone else which is important for some reason.

      Yes, which makes the fact that it it wasn't wired to output stereo to a TV even more stupid since the hardware was capable of stereo and would output that if you used the headphone jack, they literally just omitted a single wire/trace to the output port that would have enabled it.

      SEGA does what nintedontahahah am I right. Less buttons on the controller, less colors, and now turns out 50% less sound.

      The Genesis came out in 89, the SNES came out in 91. The NES was the latest thing from Nintendo when the Genesis came out, and guess what the NES lacked?

      Genesis model 1 Stereo out the front through the jack, mono by default out the back. Stereo is being produced and can be modded to be output out the back with mods like the Triple Bypass.
      Model 2 had stereo out the back.
      32x on model 1 didn’t patch over audio out the back by default because it was looking for stereo and didn’t have it. They sell special patch cables that have an audio jack that connects to the front for sound.

      >Stereo is being produced and can be modded to be output out the back with mods like the Triple Bypass.

      How would it do this without an entirely different custom output cable or replacing the connector with the Model 2 version? The official Model 1 cable and just about every 3rd party one only has mono connectors, and unless you repurpose the metal ring to act as an output or ground there are no additional pins to do stereo, not to mention then you can't get mono if you need it.

      >32x on model 1 didn’t patch over audio out the back by default because it was looking for stereo and didn’t have it.

      What about the SegaCD? It had it's own RCA outputs for audio, or was that just for Music CD playback?

        >What about the SegaCD? It had it's own RCA outputs for audio, or was that just for Music CD playback?

        Sega CD had a mixer panel that you used to feed the headphone out, and it converted it to a stereo RCA output. This was like that because CD was considered hi-fi gear at the time, and hi-fi gear used RCA stereo output. So you could hook up your CD player to your hi-fi gear this way.

      Prior to the 80's, sure. But then they all switched over to stereo audio, and even cheap CRT's had stereo sound in the 90's. TV itself began to be broadcast in stereo during the mid 80's, and I can't think of any TV show that was still mono in the 90's.
      I remember messing around with some game that had a sound setting for Stereo or Mono, and noticing Mono removed the distinct L and R channels, way back in the early 90's on a TV that was most likely bought in the late 80's. It was far from an expensive model too.

    Genesis model 1 Stereo out the front through the jack, mono by default out the back. Stereo is being produced and can be modded to be output out the back with mods like the Triple Bypass.
    Model 2 had stereo out the back.
    32x on model 1 didn’t patch over audio out the back by default because it was looking for stereo and didn’t have it. They sell special patch cables that have an audio jack that connects to the front for sound.

      It's no false flag, SNES fans are just like this, that's why they don't get along with anyone else in the 16-bit gaming sphere, much like how N64 fans love to make rivals with PlayStation and Saturn fans, or GameCube fans love to make rivals with PS2 and xBox fans, it takes the same kind of delusion and basic denial of reality, along with a hefty dose of arrogance, to be an SNES fan.

          This is true about the washed-out colors, bullshit fake transparencies via dithered layers, and that shitty FM sound chip from Yamaha which the Genesis utilizes.

          The SNES has actual transparencies (no dithered checkerboard garbage), far better sound (from that Sony sound chip and it’s sound samples), and nicer colors. It really does.

          However, I’ve always looked past all that and have only been playing Sega Genesis/CD and regular ass 8-bit NES because the games are strangely so much fukn fun. I don’t how how to explain it. The games are weird and quirky which makes them good. And TGFX16/PCE (and the CD games) are also good but I’ve been taking a short break from them.

          Right now I’m playing Dinosaurs for Hire on the Genesis and it’s really fun. The colors are washed out, the sounds aren’t that great, but that gameplay is magical. I’m playing as a triceratops wearing a Hawaiian shirt and shooting jerks with an assault rifle of somesort.

          You know what’s even better? Try Trouble Shooter on the Genesis The colors, sounds, and gameplay are beautiful. It looks and feels like a PCE-CD. This game really uses the Genesis’ hardware well.

          Maybe later I’ll go back to playing Sega Genesis Shadowrun because the gameplay is so good. I tried the newer PC games for Shadowrun but they’re not as fun.

          tldr; SNES has better colors, transparencies, and sound…but I always go back to Genesis for the wacky gameplay

          You gotta decide what you want though.

          p.s. N64 is nothing compared to either of these systems and you know that to be true

            Why didn't they put a headphone jack in ANY version of the SNES/SFC?

        Dolby Surround encoding involves applying phase shifts to different audio channels to mark them for particular speakers. Lots of Genesis games output music to the rear speakers in a surround system because of stereo widening effects that use phase differences between channels.

    Why didn't they put a headphone jack in ANY version of the SNES/SFC?

      Could be a bad capacitor that needs replacement or a cold solder joint in the audio path somewhere.

        maybe i'll try unscrewing the genesis and take a picture to see if there is anything wrong because usually it will play fine but depending on the bass sample the game has, like for example streets of rage 2, it will trigger the static sound. it's worse with sor 3 so i'll have to open it and see if there is any faulty capacitors or solders

      You probably have one of the original consoles, they have noticeably audio popping and peaking and will need filter cap replacement if it bothers you
      Another way to mitigate it somewhat is lower the volume slider to about halfway and just turn up the TV

        yeah, i dunno if you heard it but this is how it sounds like

        Okay so here are two records
        this one is how it regularly sounds like 4 minutes or so in the music
        https://files.catbox.moe/26s3wd.mp3
        and this is how it starts sounding like after those 4 minutes
        https://files.catbox.moe/j1rmrb.mp3
        for some reason when you turn up the audio the static goes away but when you lower it it becomes more noticeable however even when the volume is turned up all the way it starts distorting the pcm channels

        i never knew the model 1 had such problems, i guess that is why most youtube videos that record songs with the model 2 have it modded since i bet it doesnt have that popping and peaking noises but i'll eventually open it up and see what is the issue inside

    I found it but let me do another recording to show other examples of when i put the volume down really low, this is how it sounds like when the volume is to 0 but even when i do turn up the volume slider you can still hear the static

      it sounds like the bass has too much gain so it's overdriving. like

      said there may be a problem with the caps in the filter circuit that could account for this weird nonlinear gain.

        looks like i am going to have to try my hand at fixing this, i've never really worked with circuitry so hopefully i won't mess this up but i'll see what i can do, im not sure how long it has been happening but i never really used the headphone jack since i mostly used an rf cable until recently i learned about the stereo audio and using new pairs of headphones

          Practice soldering on junk first, here's a guide to inform you of good practices.

            can this also be done with an SNES? My snes audio has this loud buzzing noise and after doing some searching it says that the caps too need to be changed, i wonder if it's the same process

            Check out console5 cap kits
            They should have everything you need as long as you have the right model version

            Can’t he pay someone else to do it?

      The cheapest model one you can find
      Considering you’re modding it

        The audio quality will still be different even if you mod it.
        I installed a board to fix the shitty audio on my model 2. It removed the fuzz but it still sounds flat compared to my model 1.

          That’s probably because it’s not the 2612
          Which is why I said model 1
          There are a few non 2612 model 1s but it’s pretty rare

            I misread and thought you said the cheapest model you can find.
