Description

Please note: Due to limited supply, launch will be handled direct at retrotink.com. We will receive units in early 2024.

The price is an approximation at the moment, it can still change a bit depending on the real costs we will have (currency exchange rate, shipping costs, etc.)
We will probably start to take preorders shortly before the units are ready so we have an estimation of how high the demand is.
If you don't want to miss the preorder, simply put yourself on the product subscription ("Notify when back in stock") and you'll receive an email once preorders start.

Here's a video that shows the RetroTink-4k in action - including how profiles work and how awesome a job it does!
