This thread is a tribute to Gunpei Yokoi's last project, the Bandai Wonderswan!

That's funny, my plan tonight is to upgrade the speaker in mine to something less.....piezo electric speaker like.

Started collecting a bit recently, something I've been wanting to get into.

I've been looking into getting a SwanCrystal for months now, just didn't have the money up until about now

I'm half interested for the games, and half, just like with all my hardware, to eventually play music off it (assuming I ever get around to learning what few sound tools exist eheh)
I just need to figure out what kinda games I wanna get..! as someone who doesn't speak Japanese, that is

I'd recommend grabbing Klonoa if you can find it. It's fun, playable without Japanese reading comprehension, and it makes good use of the Wonderswan's vertical/horizontal orientation switch ability.

Turns out, waste of time. The amp itself sucks balls so no matter what speaker you wire in, it still distorts at the high volume. I mean maybe it overall sounds sliiiightly better, but not really noticeable. I suppose it's an easy project, but I wouldn't say it's worth it unless you wire up a new amp system or something. I wasted more time then usual cause I thought it was a rattle, but eventually I used it while still apart to find it was actually distorting. Trying two other speakers also resulted in the same thing. Guess the whole endeavor turned into just for the name of science.

While I'm leaving the new speaker in, I do not recommend this mod.

Sounds like it needs a more comprehensive mod with its own amp or a DAC.

Exactly. I've done other speaker replacement mods without adding a different amp with decent results. These results...are not worth it, lol.
Just warning people, I've already wasted the time so you don't have to!
