Here’s a review of a few SCART switches with some interesting features. I also wanted to show exactly how I performed these tests, so as new switches are released, anyone with similar equipment can confidently test their own.

I also included the recordings I took of the Castlevania opening. They were all recorded using a Genesis 3 with the Sega Triple Bypass installed, connected via a shielded SCART cable. The audio was captured through the 3.5mm output of the OSSC into a Behringer U-Phoria UMC204HD’s rear bypass inputs; A device that’s been MDFourier verified (however the OSSC’s 3.5mm is not verified). Direct from the console/switch to the Behringer might have been a “cleaner” test, however this is a fair representation of what you’d hear on your TV. Also, this zip file was set to “store”, with no compression applied: http://retrorgb.com/assets/SCARTswitchShootoutJune2020Audio.zip
Also, here’s an AMAZING follow-up video from the legendary Phonedork, discussing using YPbPr and RGsB on the original gscartsw:
