The Fenrir “Duo” Optical Drive Emulator is now in stock! This is the same high-quality ODE I reviewed a few years ago, but with one important upgrade: This single board supports both 20 & 21-pin models of the Sega Saturn. More info after the link:

While the price isn’t “cheap” at $140 plus shipping, it’s still the least-expensive Saturn ODE currently available and the installation is really easy – Just un-bolt the CDROM drive, connect a cable and put this in its place. Compatibility is really high and loading times are definitely lower than original discs, both because there’s no seek time and because as these drives age, they can get slower.
If you own a Saturn and wanted an easier way to play your collection, I’d seriously consider this upgrade!
